  • Do You Have a Job???

    Those radio commercials are pretty ubiquitous.  Every car dealership wants to know:

    Do you have a job??? Do you have $149??? Then you could be approved for a brand new Kia from Elkins Kia!

    What occurred to me the other day was that a person that doesn’t have one or both of those might get upset at having the radio rub it in their face.  That cracked me up in the car on the way home, and I thought I’d share it here.  Imagine the following:

    Radio: Do you have a job???
    Person: No…
    Radio: Do you have $149???
    Person: No… I just said I don’t even have a job.
    Radio: Then you could be approved!…
    Person: Sigh.

    I know that blog post was of little substance, but it still amused me, and as Chris and I always say, something is always better than nothing.
