Never would have thought in a million years...

.... that I would change my husband the way I did. We got a coupon in the Magazine Clipper for a free Icee from Circle K. I needed some gas so we thought we would hit up the Circle K close to our home and get a free Icee while we were at it. Hubby walks in, gets the icee, goes to cash register and pays for gas and gives coupon to cashier. The gas attendant says that he is not sure if they are a participating Circle K to use the coupon and says there is no manager around to ask. So hubby says, 'ok, give me the money back for the gas'. He then proceeds to pay for the 99 cent icee and comes out to the car. As we drive across the street to the Chevron he tells me what happened and says that if they aren't going to honor the "99 cent" coupon, then we are going to take our business somewhere else. I am trying real hard at this point not to laugh too hard and bust my incision open. But I never ever would have imagined Ryan doing something like this... it really shocked me because we have have had similar situations in the past where I would say something along the lines of, "Turn around and go back. They charged us the wrong price." These kind of situations usually ended with an argument because it generally "wasn't worth his time". I guess this time it was worth it?!

Solid move! I would have done the exact same thing!

I second that! Kai is Mr. "I'll take my business elsewhere!"

We do have a way of rubbing off on our spouses and vice versa.
