Don’t Yell at Me From T.V.
This morning I turned on the news and a commercial came on. Right away the volume jumped up 30%.
It was some guy in a cowboy outfit who sat on top of a bull (that part was appropriate) who yelled at me about why I needed to drive to his car lot and buy a vehicle right now.
I clicked it off and turned on some music. I made a vow a long time ago I would never buy anything from a human being who yelled at me from the television, regardless of how innovative the product. Besides, I’ve only had two vehicles in my adult life. The first one went a quarter million miles, and at 90,000 miles my second one is just about to get comfortable.
I’ll buy a music CD in a heartbeat. Sometimes they are marginal but if I feel the artist gave their honest best effort I buy one anyway. Maybe it’s because the music folks I like so much never yell at me from television, but mostly it’s just because the music is that good and makes my life better.
Some cat on top of a bull hollering at me before I’ve had my second cup of coffee just doesn’t wind my clock and never will.
