At Least You Could’ve Gotten Me A Mug!

Jakarta Mug

Have you ever been on a trip where you had so much fun that you forgot to buy souvenirs? I love to travel and when I’m halfway around the world in a remote country, the last thing I remember is to bring something back for my friends. It's not that I don’t care about Bob who sits in the cubicle in front of me, but let’s be honest, he’s not high on my priority list when I’m sightseeing in Indonesia. What I have noticed about Bob is that he makes several trips to the coffee pot so I think I found the perfect gift for my cubicle neighbor.

Since I’ve made it all the way back home to Atlanta, Georgia, I grab my smartphone and type “mug Jakarta” in the search engine. Instantly, I get a variety of mugs I can customize with the word “Jakarta” and different graphic options I can select. I think Bob would appreciate the “I LOVE JAKARTA” mug and since I didn’t get myself anything, the one with “I AM A ROCKSTAR IN JAKARTA” will suit my ego just fine.

Now, when I get back to work, Bob will not only have a great souvenir that he can actually use every day for his java runs, he’ll be the envy of the workforce for days, if not weeks or months. If I get too much flack from my other coworkers for bringing only one souvenir back, I’ll simply say, “I had to ship yours because I could only bring so many through customs.” In addition to being a great official-sounding excuse, it will buy me more time to order more online.
