Do you want to get a glimpse inside a neurotic brain?
Back when COVID started, the government was handing out money for companies to buy supplies and some of the hot ticket items were air purifiers. As the Business Manager at my previous job, I bought a LOT of air purifiers and then submitted the receipt for reimbursement from one of the various relief grants. Due to the high demand of these items, and the fact that the government was basically picking up the bill, the price on air purifiers went way up.
Personally, I wanted one for our home but knew it was not the right time to buy (Econ 101 taught me to buy when supply is high and demand is low and never the other way around). So I waited and waited and breathed in disgusting potentially polluted COVID air all the while.
This past Columbus Day weekend, we went up to my brother’s house in New Hampshire, where the air is clean and mountain pure, but even he had an air purifier going 24/7. My brother is an ER doctor and so I figured if he thought an air purifier was a good idea, I better follow suit.
But then life got busy and I forgot that I desperately wanted and needed an air purifier. Sometimes this forgetfulness is a very good thing when it comes to my bank account.
