Personally, I like the AT&T ad that emphatically states that you can make a call ANYWHERE in the United States!...until you read the fine print at the bottom of the screen that says coverage not available everywhere?!?

I’d have to agree with Boise.

Alot of people don’t like Walmart or whoever. They say support your local business. Well, when I can buy item X for $100 at one place and item X at another for $79….where am I going to buy item X?

Life aint fair…if the big store sells it cheaper…well…too bad I guess. That’s capitalism. You can say things about service and such, but, so many items don’t need service. I’ll buy the $19.95 hammer from the big store before I’ll “support” the little guy who wants $27.95 for the exact same item. Sorry.

And finally, I’m pretty sharp when it comes to marketing and I don’t fall for it. My biggest problem with it is keeping my 86 yr old dad from falling for it. The phrase…”You did WHAT?” is getting too common.
