Lotto Let Down

Think About it…

You are sitting there with a winning lotto ticket, the winning lotto ticket, is in your hand, potentially worth¬†$1.6 Billion or ~$900 Million onetime payout…

your brain is in overload, just thinking about all the things you’ll now be able to do, take care of every need of you loved ones…

Then you find out that there are 2 other winners…

And just like that you have lost over $600 Million dollars…

That’s gotta suck…

I get bummed, when I double down at a blackjack table and loose $20…

Why we are doomed…

Well I guess the the term “self fulfilling prophecy” come to mind, as well as “‘learned incompetence” ¬†with my experience of getting a couple keys made.

My daughter recently moved back to the area for Philadelphia and we needed some keys so that they could have access to our storage spot that they would have more room in the apartment. SO my wife took the key over to Home Depot, and the guys their decided it would be a good idea to have a race in making the 2 sets of keys, maybe good idea for them bad idea for us, in that some of the keys work, some don’t. This becomes a major pain in the ass, I really hate having to deal with redoing something because some knucklehead couldn’t be bothered to verify his work…

SO now I am at Lowe’s with a good key, and I see the the Minute Key machine, I decide to go all in, and give it a try. I hit the screen, inert my key, swipe my credit card and less then 5 minutes later i have what turns out to be 4 perfect keys. Thinking back to the duo of racing key cutters at Home Depot, I wonder if they even realize how easy it is to automate them right out of a job. My attitude about retail is that every customer you meet is an opportunity to shine, which is something most in retail don’t get nowadays. As profit pressure increases, along with the demands for higher wages I gotta think those jobs out there that help a lot of people make ends meet are just going to be automated out of existence, as the attitudes of those working in retail continue to go south.

It Made It….

Well after 3 full weeks my package finally made it to kansas, I think that when I looked it up in google maps, I could have walked it there in about the same time frame…

Thankfully Garmin used UPS ground to ship it back, and it only took three days to travel the distance.

I guess the irony in the whole situation is that it was a broken GPS that got lost….

The Irony Of Walmart

The other day, I was visiting my favorite website ever, PeopleOfWalmart.com, when I noticed something a little funky about the ads I was seeing. There’s just something fundamentally wrong with Brooks Brothers and Anne Taylor ads on a People Of Walmart.

Interesting that a day or so after I pulled the screenshot, the ads weren’t so high end anymore…
