I Got Shacked

I Got ShackedThere is a weird law in the universe. The large the hurry you are in, the better the chance that the employee at Radio Shack will grill you on your phone plan on the way out the door. After being a joke for every comedians in the future about them asking about batteries, they switched from pimping batteries to grilling you about your phone.

I went to TWO other stores praying they would have the cable I KNEW Radio Shack had. I didn't want to have to deal with the check out process. I'm happy with my phone. I know you sell phones. I know you sell toys. I know what you do. I see you advertising.

I really just want my change. I just got my phone. I won't be upgrading any time soon. Neither will anyone of my friends, family, or co-workers. Can I please just have my change? How about handing me my receipt and letting me get out?

Let's Create a Catch Phrase

When you are in a store, and they just won't let you leave without hearing the hard sell you are “Getting Shacked.” If you are at the shoe store and they won't let you leave without the hard pitch for socks, you are “Getting Shacked.” Let's make this part of a vocabulary. “I got shacked!”

 

What Would Shawn Do?

Buiilding a Better Dave - Picture of a keyMy Cousin's memorial service was people explaining how Shawn was “being Shawn” and tale after tale on what a great friend he was, and how he just didn't care for rules. He definitely would color “outside the lines.”

So as I walked away from the service I thought, “I could stand be to a bit more bold.” I don't want to be rude, but there are times when I'm sitting at the key counter of life being ignored that I need to stand up and say HEY! MAKE MY KEY!

In my latest class I'm learning that there are no more illegal immigrants. Now we have undocumented immigrants. PAH-LEASE! It's called illegal. I L L E G A L. I had a friend who marriedan “undocumented immigrant” and one day with his daughter watching immigration came and took him back to Mexico. If he was simply “undocumented” could they have not just said “Oh here you are” and documented it and let him stay? NO! He was ILLEGALLY in the country.

The Nurse is now on my phone plan. oooooh.
