Pausing each month to make my student loan payment, I like to reflect on the things it has enabled me to both experience and learn.
Today I’m remembering living on campus, minding my own business on battle.net (hey guys, remember 2005?) and being interrupted by a knock at the door.
For those of you who do remember 2005, you know exactly what the girl on the other side of the door looked like, down to the tan Ugg boots.
"Hi… do you have a spoon?"
Somehow prepared for the question, I tell her no without a seconds hesitation. Something about feeding strays.
This was followed by the whitest of white girl scoffs. ”Who the fuck doesn’t have a spoon?!” she muttered as she stomped away on what could’ve been a very promising sheep.
Say what you will about college, but it most definitely prepares you for dealing with end users.
I finally caved and signed up for Loot Crate. Yeah its mostly cheesy nerd toys that I will end up regifting or stashing somewhere in my hovel, but let me tell you WHY I’m giving these guys my money.
Womens. 3X. T-shirts.
Thats right. T-shirts. Cut for people with tits. That are on the large side. As a reference for those interested, I’m usually a 20/22 in tops and dresses and I’m a 40HH. The 3X t-shirts from Loot Crate fit amazingly well.
So my fellow lady nerds who are fed up with Think Geek… you may want to check this out. I was pleasantly surprised.
(Also full disclosure, thats my referral link above if you feel like being super cool.)
