Oprah Mag Eternal Loop?

My inability to say no to free stuff has ripped a hole in the space/time continuum between me and Oprah Magazine. Now I find myself in a loop. Is it eternal? I do not know.

It started innocently enough ~ sometime in 2018, I got a coupon for 12 issues of O Magazine for only $8. That was a great deal! So I signed up. Never could I have guessed what would happen in the months since…

About four months before renewal, I signed in to my account and clicked cancel subscription. A message popped up: Wait! Have 2 extra issues, on us.

Free.

I hit OKAY. Two months got added to my 4 months left. Cool!

But I’m frugal, and I didn’t want a magazine subscription. So when I had only a few months left, I hit cancel subscription again.

Wait! Have 2 extra issues, on us.

Oookay, sure πŸ™‚

However, I did NOT want a magazine subscription. Although 2 more months got added, I was very grateful, but it was time to cancel.

Wait!

Okay… I hit okay again. And again… And…

Wait!

Why can’t I just say no? Why does O keep extending me by 2 months?
Is this my life now??
I… I don’t even read O!

I know you’ll say “Just cancel.”

But it’s not that easy!

As you can see, it’s been an emotional roller coaster, one without easy solutions or answers. This must be my fate. Oprah has decided.

Maybe some day I’ll be strong enough to hit cancel, for good. But for now, I should go to my account and face the familiar pop-up once more.

Wait!

OKAY.

πŸ˜μ•ˆλ…•! Bye! Ciao!
