Valentine’s Day Advice

Alright, listen to me. You pull up right where she lives, right? Before you get outta the car, you lock both doors. Then, get outta the car, you walk over to her. You bring her over to the car. Dig out the key, put it in the lock and open the door for her. Then you let her get in. Then you close the door. Then you walk around the back of the car and look through the rear window. If she doesn’t reach over and lift up that button so that you can get in: dump her…Listen to me, kid. If she doesn’t reach over and lift up that button so that you can get in, that means she’s a selfish broad and all you’re seeing is the tip of the iceberg. You dump her and you dump her fast.

Fortunately Michelle and I live in the day an age of power locks. We make it work.

The Funny Thing About It Is…

Women dig funny guys. So says a recent study. I don’t think the article did justice to quick, witty humor. That’s absolutely a sign of intelligence. To be able to play off a social scenario and grab a laugh takes a sharp mind.

Just don’t expect to get lucky on a date starting with some racist jokes and ending with a pull my finger gag. If you do get lucky after all that, marry her…especially if she’s rich.

All Press is Good Press

I ran across this article about a pizzeria in San Francisco that is turning negative reviews from Yelp! into marketing. The owner has taken the quotes from the reviews and put them onto t-shirts for employees to wear. This is brilliant for small restaurants with a group of loyal that don’t care about the few people that don’t like their food.

Then I began thinking, wouldn’t it be great to have a Yelp! type system for people when you meet them? This would be especially great for dating. It’s only a matter of time with RFID tagging before this is possible. Pretty soon you could be walking around, checking out people like this.

Yes, I spent far too long making this picture, but I think it makes my point nicely.

Aww Crap!

I was on the phone with a customer and told him we would get his units out tomorrow, so he should have them on Monday. He said, “You mean Friday. We should have them by Friday.” I scratched my head for a while and wondered why he thought he was going to receive his package the same day we shipped it. Then I looked down on my system tray and realized it’s only Wednesday! I have two more days of work! He totally ruined my day.
