It's true. Now I understand most of you would think that a trip to Best Buy would be equivalence to a trip to heaven, but sadly, that's not how it happened. This tale of despair all began today while I was on my way to work.
While driving there I was contemplating calling in sick because I just wasn't in the mood to work, but instead wanted to spend the days of my youth doing things that I enjoy, and going to work is not something that falls into the category of fun to me. I get there and am about to start working then decide nah, I'd rather not. So on my way out I pull out my cellphone and call in sick.
On my way to my car I think about all the fun things I could do instead, and decide to drive to a Best Buy a little far away from where I am so that I could pick up a copy of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands since it is not in stock at my local Best Buy. I decide the drive would be worth it because I hear it's so good that it's almost on par with the blockbuster movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
I get into my car and begin navigating out of the parking lot and head towards the highway. I finally get on the highway and begin listening to the hilarious and very entertaining Cagcast #238: Compromised. I can already tell this 20 minute drive is going to be nothing but a joy.
I finally get to Best Buy and it turns out they have more than one copy of the game! I think about buying more than one copy just because of my great luck, but decide against it. I head back through the pretty dangerous parking lot of Best Buy to my car. I feel a sneeze coming on while navigating, but decide it would be far to dangerous to let the sneeze out and temporarily make me less aware of my surroundings in this dangerous place so I hold it in.
I get in my car finally and go back on the highway to finally go back to my place of residence to play the incredible game that I had just purchased for the miniscule price of $9.99 + tax. I get back on the highway and receive a call on my cellphone. Of course it would be rude of me to not answer it so I do, and begin talking to the caller. That is when tragedy struck. That sneeze I was holding in came out.
Now this was no normal sneeze, it was a sneeze of great force that caused me to swerve a little. I regain control of my vehicle while talking on my cellphone and then notice that sneeze has left a long green piece of mucus coming out of my nose. And this was no tiny booger, no, it was huge.
I quickly look to see if I have a kleenex or anything at all I could use to wipe this massive booger from my face, but alas my car is kept too clean, there is nothing to use. I am still talking on the phone at the time and this turns out to be bad. The booger is moving down my lip and entering my mouth while I was talking. I try to wipe it away with my hand, but it was no good. I found it to be too gross to actually touch.
So I'm swerving, talking on the phone, trying to tilt my head in a way to keep this mucus from entering my mouth, but it already has started to. Knowing that my safety and health is at risk I think of the only thing I can do. I grab my copy of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and use it to wipe the booger off my face. Unfortunately the game seems too contaminated to me to be useable so I open my window and throw it out before any further damage happens.
I don't know if I did something to deserve this (is it because I thought about buying multiple copies of the game?), but it is the worst thing I have ever experienced in my life. Somehow I survived though.
Anyone else have a trip to Best Buy or a booger ever completely ruin their day as well? I feel like I'm all alone in the world now.
