I just throw my cell phone in my cup holder anyway. I wouldn’t turn down the cell phone holder of someone gave it to me.

I also got the floor mats a couple Christmases ago.

The problem today when things go “viral” is because of social media like Twitter, people will make a snarky comment about everyday things to get a few likes, then a shitty “news” site like Yahoo! will take a handful of those tweets, wrote an entire article about it (using the handful of tweets as the majority of the “article”), throw a clickbait headline on it, and it snowballs from there.

This is what I do also, but don’t like glancing down that far ...

So, Otters, hint hint!

I think because of this post I now hate this Dominos commercial, because all I can think about when it airs is "this is exactly what you should be doing and you want a pat on the back for it."

Like imagine a restaurant offering "insurance" and saying if they ruin your food they'll replace it. Yeah, of course you will.

Even worse is that they "surprise" people with the extra pizza, and they act all overjoyed that they got a free crappy Domino's pizza. I'd love to see the true reaction "I only ordered that pizza 'cuz I didn't have enough time to cook that night. And you fucked it up anyway. I just took some steaks off the grill for tonight, but hey, we'll put them in the fridge and eat this free shitty pizza instead."

Anyone mention those Epson commercials with Shaquille O'Neal? I hear them on Spotify. Pretty, pretty, pretty annoying.

I'm pretty fed up with the commercial where the guy is trying to get his smart speaker to do something, but it tells him his internet is down, so he keeps commanding it louder and louder until he blows his stack. Dude, seriously, you cannot be that stupid. If your internet is down your internet is down. Get the fuck over it, get your internet fixed, and stop screaming at your speaker.

You'd probably be surprised.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

I don't know that I actually HATE it, but the new AmEx Green Card commercial that is on constant rotation lately always baffles me.

https://ispot.tv/a/oUuS

The gal keeps getting haircuts. And it looks like it's always the same style


Then she gets another one. Looks pretty much the same to me, and it looks like she's suddenly horrified


What's going on there? What are they trying to say about her? WHAT AM I MISSING HERE?????
