I have turned into the seventh dwarf: grumpy.
[I’m not all that grumpy because I am HOME (!!) but I had to carry on the blog title to describe today’s ripoffs]
First, the hotel was MUCH more expensive than we had budgeted due to a miscommunication in booking and room block confusion. Thus, we had to pay over $100 more than planned. Also, as we were checking out we spotted a whole room of free breakfast that we had no idea existed.
Worse things happen in life, for sure, but that was a double whammy surprise. At least I did spend most of my blogging this weekend raving about said expensive hotel!
We joined our friends for a coffee + breakfast excursion.
Ye ole town of Davidson, charming visitors since 1837
First stop was Summit Coffee for some liquid gold
Second stop was Bagel Bin, where there was a line out the door and a 30 minute wait. Our friends wanted to stay, so we did.
Snake took down his lox + cream cheese bagel.
Matt and I ordered sandwiches for our car ride home to go. Cost of 2 bagel sandwiches and 2 bagels to go: $16!!! Damn.
His was MASSIVE and loaded with meat! Look at it in my hand:
My lox + cream cheese veggie bagel on pumpernickel
Do you see any lox!? I don’t see any lox. #TotalRipoff
Matt shared a few bites of his with me
And I ate a big ole apple
We never have bagels, so I got two to have with our meals this week: egg + spinach flavors!
The Saltine Challenge: GO MATT!
Did you see the KERF version? 6 saltines in 60 seconds. Anyone been successful?
Here’s Matt’s turn:
Uneventful 4.5 hour ride home. Very pretty scenery! I read Girl with the Dragon. Deep into it!
SO HAPPY TO BE HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
