Roll up the Stupid Rim

At the beginning of this year, I declared 2012 the year of financial success.

The first thing to go was my $4.10 Americano mistos.

As a result, I had to retrain my tastebuds to accept Tim's again.
I can successfully tolerate the taste again.

But I cannot accept my stats on Roll Up the Rim.

I'm 2/24.

Tim's claims the odds are 1 in 6. I call bullshit on that one.

What's your Roll up the stupid Rim stat this year?

I'm 18 for 23, all free coffee. I'm obviously getting all of your 1-in-6 wins :)

Laura said...

...I want AndreaClaire to buy me coffee. I stopped keeping track as it was ticking me off but I have won 2 coffees and a donut but have probably bought about .... 30 by now?

Shockingly, I won a camera on Friday. Have to wait and see if it actually arrives.

Natasha said...

I haven't won any this year or last, so you're ahead of me!

I am obviously not from your area, I was trying to figure out what your 1 in 6 was. lol

I started making my own iced coffee this year. Actually now I find I prefer my own to anywhere else. (Which is a bonus IMO.)

Meredith said...

I also call bullshit because I have only won twice as well! A coffee every work day, since the contest started.

Tamara said...

I'd say it's BS too but it got you to buy 24 coffees. Brilliant BS I guess.

Sure would be nice to win that car though.

Blossom said...

Actually my stats are pretty good. I make coffee every day so I don't buy that often....I'd say I'm about 3/7! Only won 2 coffees and a donut though.

ALL because it is said to be 1 in 6 does not guarantee you will get 1 every six times.

It's not BS. You guys just don't understand probability.

It's like rolling six dies and expecting one of them to be 6 at least once. But that's NOT guaranteed at all.

2/24...not enough statistical evidence to reject 1/6. Take an introductory stats course
