Anatomy of a glitch.
I wrote this part and put it at the top of what I had wrote previously.
I was unable to post this blog yesterday due to a setting that I mistakenly toggled.
Human error, the software is not at fault.
To those who were bummed about nothing being there yesterday, whether you commented on FB or emailed, sorry.
Some of them were a little pissy.
Tinymouse@mail.com- you nailed it. I don’t care. I am a misogynistic bastard and I just don’t care.
(We exchanged a series of angry emails yesterday. Mainly because of my use of the C word in my first reply. Childish, but I hadn’t had coffee yet.)
Anyway, here is yesterdays post, a day late.
Cyber Monday is looming tomorrow, and it is looking like this one will be the biggest one ever.
Fact is, people like to shop online.
Its getting wildly more popular.
Anytime you can get your shopping done for the holidays while wearing your underwear and not leaving the house, its bound to catch on.
Black Friday is the retarded hunchback of the shopping season, hideous to look at or deal with, but what else is there?
Amazon.com announced awhile back that sales of ebooks had surpassed sales of printed books.
Only a matter of time.
I decided not to even try to brave the Black Friday crowds this year.
Just don’t have it in me.
Its like facing a hoard of shopping zombies in an effort to get a low cost LCD tv.
I would like to go on record as saying that I am not an avid fan of the Walking Dead show.
I watched the first season and loved it.
But its on on the wrong night for me.
But I get the concept.
The first rule of zombies is, avoid them at all costs.
Cyber Monday it is.
Add to that my membership in Amazon Prime for the free 2nd Day Air shipping of a HUGE amount of stuff on Amazon.com and you can understand why I like Monday over Friday.
Technically shopping in your underwear at Macy’s would be more fun, but you get my point.
Off on a tangent now.
That would be an interesting spectacle.
Strip down in the parking lot, timing it so that the mall security had just made their rounds on their little 3 wheeled Segwey knock off.
Head on in thru the main glass doors, heads whipping around, keep moving.
Black Friday crowds are agressive, but its a human instinct to avoid a naked man in public, the crowds will part.
Head to the jewelry counter.
There will be a spot at the counter, rest assured, just push your way in and when anyone turns to complain, they will sidle away at one look.
The clerk will show you whatever you want in a daze.
If you are fast, you can make a purchase and move on before management shows.
However, if they do, here is the move.
“Excuse me, you can’t be in here like that!” Is the standard move, said just loud enough to be firm, without alerting other customers.
Can’t hurt sales.
Your reply has to be quick, loud and on the verge of hysteria.
“DON”T TOUCH ME, I’M A US CITIZEN!”
Management has a strict “Hands off” policy about crazy.
But at that point, you have to deal with mall security and then the police.
And thats no fun.
Better to stay naked at home.
