Didja catch the story out of China? Where the kid destroyed a $15,000 Lego statue an hour after a brand new exhibit opened? Ask yourself…how mortified would you be if it was your kid? Your friendly neighborhood jman? Oh…he’d crawl into a hole.
What is it with tech guys? Why are tech guys such tools? I’m not being stereotypical here, either. I’m speaking anecdotally. As anecdotally as this past weekend, as a matter of fact.
With my oldest daughter being home from college for the summer, the fights over the TV have already begun. To ease my suffering, and avoid a nuclear disaster at Chez jman, I decided to take yet another financial hit and buy a second TV for the gamers residing in my house.
After a quick search on the internets, I found a desirable TV for the right price (that is…fit the space on my credit card) at Best Buy. Much to my chagrin, though, after making the trek to the store, the desirable TV was only available online. I could’ve purchased it from the website and had it shipped to the store, but…impulsiveness.
Besides, there was a comparable TV at the store; comparable in every way, even down to the price (spoiler alert: or so I thought). As I was contemplating a decision, a handy dandy Best Buy employee was making his way down the aisle. “Do you need any help, sir?” He asked.
The last few years, your friendly neighborhood jman’s been on a quest. A vision quest, if you will (and you will). A vision quest to find these mythical Tastykake Pancake flavored Krimpets. I know. I know. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking: What in the Sam Hell am I talking about? Well, it’s a fair question. And one which I aim to tackle here.
See, a bunch of years ago, Tastykake came out with Pancake flavored Krimpets. And I picked up a box, why? Because marketing works on me. Duh. And I’m more than willing to try anything that has the word “new” on it.
it’s the day after a new show debuts and your friendly neighborhood jman? he’s about as useful as a cup of water to a thirsty man. or is it a drowning man? i always get that shit mixed up.
