Coupons. All the coupons I see are “buy one, get one free!”, or “$5 off an order of $15!” And despite academics being basically cheap people, I don’t have very many colleagues I’d feel comfortable grabbing and saying, “hey, let’s go eat here, I have a coupon.”

I mean, I eat at Qdoba practically weekly (hula classes go from 6:30pm to whenever he lets us go, so it’s really helpful to eat a big supper around 3pm or 4pm), and still, for my birthday, all they can send me is “buy one get one free.”
