So in the days before my surgery there was a lot I wanted to get done. The thought of being laid up for a while is less than pleasing to me. New phones where in order.
Order was filled.
I have always been on the up and up as far as cellular phones go. I'm the dude that can have no money, no job, but a pretty sweet phone.
My last phone was a Lg Chocolate. The last one before the touch. Yeah a little out dated. I will however say that phone has been dropped in a bucket of water, tossed of a roof, left inside engine bays, slid, slammed, squeezed, pinched, painted(yeah painted), and just about whatever else you could think of.
Oh did I mention 5 kids"can I use your phone,can I take a picture, blah,blah,blah"
So I went into the Verizon store set on a Android....I left with a Blackberry Storm 2. Now I know they are not newest but, its a pretty cool phone. My current work ventures are making a phone with the Storm's capabilities useful. All this said....I lead into this....
While in the store it took a good while to decide. Angel had hers picked out in 15 minutes....me not so much.
When narrowed down between the Storm and the Android, we were approached by the " o so helpful" sales man. Now I already did my research but they are kinda unavoidable. I'll get to the point here.
When I informed him of the two phones I was interested in he said (insert condescending asshole tone here)
"you know when you see a BB, you think business person. You know, email driven. Maybe run your own business"
"umm hmm. Yes well..."
" now the android has all kinds of "fun" apps like facebook,twitter,and flickr"
"yeah...umm o.k., I'll take the Storm"
Now I guess my point is this. Just because I strolled in wearing slouched jeans, a independent skateboard T-shirt, and a pair of vans.....what? huh? You think I like facebook etc.(refer to above link).
How the hell does this guy know. I could own a multi-million dollar company.
Hey... he was supper skinny, balding, mid 30 year-old with the shakes, wiping his inflamed nostrils like he had a cold.......I didn't coin him as a coke addict. Openly anyway.
Judge not my friends.....you never know who is who.
