Continuing yesterday’s coffee theme

Our local Kwik Save (cheap supermarket) has just been replace with a Somerfield (cheap supermarket).
The Kwik Save was the only local shop that sold filter papers, 40 for 59p. I went in this morning as I passed to see if this vital item of stock had been preserved in the change over. To my relief, there were the green packets on the shelf in the beverage shelves. The feeling of dread that had been building melted away, only to be replaced by one of outrage as I approached the shelves. 89 pence per box of forty filters! A fifty percent mark up! I still can’t think straight. What am I going to do?

You are 44% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.

You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You’ll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

Geek [to You]: I’m givin’ her all she’s got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.
