I'm less of a loser if I help you win big!

So I had planned to blog about how I almost came to blows with the salesman at the mattress store yesterday after he said he wouldn't sell us a mattress without a box spring. (We already have a box spring; a new one can't possibly bring me $600 worth of enjoyment, no matter what he suggests to the contrary while standing on various box springs around the store trying to make some sort of convoluted point...)

But then I saw this post on Allison Winn Scotch's blog and thought, This is far more interesting then my mattress woes...why not love my blog readers enough to send them there?

So there you have it! Head over, enter to win a copy of Allison's new book, Time of My Life, and tell us: what is your "What if?" life moment?

Oh I'll have to check that out, and I'd love to hear your story too. I love customer service rage :)

That is utterly ridiculous! What if you had a platform bed or a bunk bed? And isn't it your American right to own a mattress without a box spring? I should hope so! Good to hear you kept your cool.

another example of your restraint in public. i would have probably tried to smother him between a mattress and boxspring...

Can you not just buy a mattress? I've never had to buy one, but know that my box springs are fine, I just need to get a new mattress.

It's how everyone makes money. Ever notice that all those makeup chicks never offer you just the lip moisturizer you want? No, you have to get an entire spa package just to get the glorified Blistex. I mean, if I want new tires, do I have to buy a new car for them to go on, too?
