Motivation

I got a new phone on Christmas Eve. It came with a $50 mail-in rebate. The forms are already filled out for me electronically. I need to do two things to redeem my rebate:
  1. cut off proof-of-purchase
  2. address envelope
That is all I need to do to get my free money. The easiest fifty dollars I'll ever make.

The rebate material is sitting in a bag under my bed. Where is the motivation? Think of all the things I could buy with that fifty dollars! That's fifty items at the dollar store! Or one item at the fifty-dollar store!

I am not motivated to end this sentnece with punctuation

I am not motivated to fix the typo in that last sentence.

I am not motivated to finish this blog pos

Hahaha!! You do realize that usually rebates are not as simply obtained as it seems they should be. Often times the company will "misplace" or ignore your submission because of incompetence or simply not wanting to give up their $50. Maybe it's this lack of compliance with their promises that makes you not motivated. But sometimes, placing a stamp on anything these days is a real chore.
