I'm me and you're you! NO H8!
So, recently i’ve gotten into the habit of turning on the T.V when I wake up and leaving it on while i get ready for class and make breakfast. This morning it occurred to me how many car insurance commercials are out there. During every show break there is a “new” car commercial and then every other break there is a commercial for car insurance. I literally heard at least 6 car insurance commercials before i got to my noon class. I even heard a couple on Pandora during my walk to class. Now the thing with insurance commercials is that everyone know the top company’s: Geico, State Farm, Progressive etc. etc.. I think it is quite entertaining how they more “blatantly” call out the competition more recently. Except for Geico, I mean what is this lizard gecko doing walking around a bar and dancing the two-step. This is what i’ve decifered, Progressive attacks state farm -> State Farm attacks Geico —> and Geico does their own thing. Now, Flo has just started to annoy me and I think the only one’s that i’m actually liking are the State Farms ones that subtly call out Geico through referencing the 15 minute could save you money line.
Ohh the day’s when “lines” are no more. Standing in line at Starbucks the other day I began to think about check-out lines. Self-check out lines have been popping up in all types of places from grocery stores and the like, just recently I walked into CVS and noticed that they had installed 3 new self check out lanes. I’m just waiting for the day when Starbucks has a self-checkout lane. You would just walk up to the counter and touchscreen yourself what drink you wanted. At least have one in conjunction with a regular Barista so that you are not stuck behind the indecisive people who stand there pondering what they want for what feels like hours (especially if you’re in a rush to class). This would solve a lot of issues for people who know what they want and don’t need any food items to go along with their order. They could just pay for their simple drink and be on their merry way.
