Hello everyone! Decided to bring you something different to start the new year off right. The cell phone has revolutionized how society communicates on a daily basis. Some would say that we have come too far as it permeates every aspect of our lives (well, at least the newer generation’s) You cannot deny that these super computers that we hold in our hands have had a positive impact, the ability to call for help, private navigation help for those too proud to ask for directions or dread having to fold up those damn paper maps and of course the benefit of having your runs tracked and analyzed is a godsend for those of us who strive to go further/faster on every training run. However, there is another big benefit – BLOG FODDER! Thanks to those convenient built in cameras, mistakes, oddities and things that make us go hmmm (credit CJ for coining that term) can be captured with ease. I find myself taking pictures of things ALL the time in hopes of finding time to sharing a few laughs to help get us through stressful days. So, have a laugh or two on me:
Holy crap, there’s an opening for my dream job – the Chick-fil-A Cow Mascot. If they only knew I’d do it for free. It does make me wonder about their leadership opportunities – I pictured their corporate office being filled with people in cow costumes. Note, my brother Ron has been invited to tour their corporate offices thanks to their reward program and his love for chicken. Hoping he will be able to confirm the above vision… and get pictures!
We stopped to get a quick bite at one of our local McDonald’s. Truthfully, I can barely stomach their hamburgers these days. We do not put extra salt on any of our foods so we might be more sensitive than usual, but their hamburgers taste like salt blocks. While there I notice the giant “take the survey on your receipt” signage plastered right behind the register. Didn’t think much about it until I looked around the corner and saw their handwritten results. Apparently the surveys says 61% – good job there…NOT.
Hit the jump to see a bunch more finds over the past year or so.
