My husband goes into many people’s homes everyday. He’s a cable/phone/internet technician for Cox Communications, and chances are he’s been into more than one of my reader’s homes. This is just one of the wonderful stories that I get to hear when he gets home at the end of the day…
On a typical call, my husband was installing new cable at a local home (Mulvane, KS). The female resident of the home was on the telephone with a friend discussing the amazing deals at Target and how she is going to stock up on Raisin Bran cereal.
Being that we had JUST been at Target the night prior and noticed that the available coupon for Raisin Bran was not included in that particular sale (and being the awesome helper that he is ;)) my husband chimes in and says “I’m sorry, but you will not be able to stock up on that Raisin Bran deal at Target”.
What typical man knows these things?! They had chit-chatted earlier about our small boys, and that we live in Derby etc. As soon as she heard his polite interjection, she knew that his wife must be a couponer. She put two and two together and she was ecstatic that the “Diva’s” husband was in her home. So ecstatic in fact, that she wrote me this email later that night:
I was the one that your husband just installed the cox at my house, and I have to say after he had told me he had two boys & then his wife was a HUGE couponer – then the fact that he knew the Raisin Bran was not included at Target – and I had just read about him going last night this morning on your post I was like is your wife my coupon Idol?????….then was star struck and immediately started asking about the house and the new pantry!!!!!! 🙂
Enjoy your weekend!!”
I can’t decide which part I like more. My husband being “down” on the coupons, or the wonderful email that I got later that evening. I just have to say that I appreciate each and every one of you. The reader emails and comments and how we “know” each other and our shopping habits. I cannot stress enough how much I LOVE what I do! So, if you see a handsome, 30-something Cox man in your home, you just might have “The Dude” in your living room. 😀
