For the past year or so I’ve been giving my lb. coffee markouts to my bf’s mother (who lives in our house as a tenant, god fucking help us), since I already have so much tea stockpiled up and she drinks coffee at least 2-3 times a day. Given I remember to get my markout, it’s like ~52 bags of coffee for the year, likely less because sometimes I would snag a box of tea or chai concentrate for myself.
Anyhow, I was on vacation in Oregon with my bf (Sean) and she calls him up one morning all flustered and is like I need chai NOW I have a friend over and they want chai!!!! So, I had two boxes of chai concentrate in the house in my cupboard. One was the Sbux retail one, the other was non-retail that a shift gave me (long story). I told her, politely, that I wanted to save the chai for myself and Sean since he loves chai, that and we wouldn’t be back in time from vacation to have a little bit ourselves before it would expire.
And she FLIPS OUT. Starts screaming about how completely ungrateful and rude we are, etc, and how she can’t believe this, after all she has done for us. What. Ungrateful? She was freaking the fuck out and threatening to even throw out my chai. Finally I just said okay, take the retail concentrate, but leave the non-retail one since I probably won’t ever come by that again. And that pacified her (for the time being).
Long story short, looks like it’s just tea for me bitch. Ever since that day I’ve stopped bringing her home coffee. Her supply was dwindling the other day and she asked me about the coffee, and I told her I don’t get it anymore, I just get tea. She was all disappointed, but seriously I don’t care. I didn’t have to bring her coffee, but clearly courtesy wasn’t appreciated, just expected.
Sometimes I feel like a giant loser. Only ever slept with two people (the second is my current boyfriend), super introverted, socially awkward, plays video games too much, pretty much a loner on all fronts, don’t know how to dress nicely, apathetic about life, can’t ever seem to lose enough weight, put all my energy into school and get all A’s but it feels meaningless. Don’t ever seem to have an opinion about anything, whether it be politics or socio-economics or anything. No close family or friends besides a great set of coworkers but…I don’t know. What am I doing with my lifeeeee
