I fell asleep last night before doing my post, so I'm up at 4 a.m. bringing youse the latest in whatever the heck it is being brought. The stupid Giants lost the playoff game that they should have won, and I felt like I played the stupid game. It made me miss my nap, and I was uber cranky last night.
The Steelers won, so at least I'll have a team to root for through the rest of the playoffs.
And another thing that is getting on my last nerve, and I get ready to throw something at the TV every time it's on, is those cash for gold commercials. Are there really people who have no idea gold is valuable? Really?
And now, with the economy in the dumper, there must be one of those commercials every 10 minutes.
And, inevitably, those are followed by a commercial for a Rent to Own appliance commercial. And the pitchman tries to come across as a well meaning uncle, giving you the chance to get needed items like a computer, refrigerator, and big screen TV. OK, who really needs a big screen TV? Especially one that is going to cost double or triple after paying all the fees.
PT Barnum would be a billionaire if he were around today.
And now, Billy Mays is yelling about health insurance. Yeah, I should buy insurance from the same guy selling me super putty, car scratch stuff, and over priced soap.
Thank goodness for Vince and ShamWow or I'd lose faith in all TV advertisements.
But the big mystery to me is, how the heck do the free credit report folks make any money? They give away reports for free. They must work on volume.
