Monday of last week, I wrote a sweet little post about how excited my 16 year old Ryno was by receiving some Jack Link’s Beef Jerky from me for Easter because he loves the stuff and hadn’t eaten it in about eighteen months because of his braces which had recently come off for good.
Well my friends, the fine folks at Jack Link’s read my post and last Thursday I received a very nice letter from Kristina Phernetton who works in their Consumer Relations Department.
Along with the typical form letter, there was a nice personal note from Ms. Phernetton as well as a coupon for some free Jack Link’s Beef Jerky which my son has already happily utilized.
I want to thank Jack Link’s and Ms. Phernetton for taking the time to read my blog and send a nicety along to my son. It’s proof positive that while not an everyday occurrence, good customer relations are not dead.
Because of their fantastic response, Jayman and I have named Jack Link’s Beef Jerky the Official Beef Jerky of our Blog Talk Radio show, I’m With Stupid. Here’s to you guys, and of course, ladies.
Speaking of I’m With Stupid…Jayman and I produced another award winning show this past Saturday.
We recapped the Royal Wedding, and previewed the Saturday visit of our Bagwine guests which unfortunately although I was here for it, was unable to attend due to premature unconsciousness due to an early imbibing of Wild Irish Rose.
Please give our show a listen by utilizing this handy dandy BTR machine. It’ll be worth your while. It was pretty funny:
I heard the question asked many times Sunday night and Monday, a question similar to what was asked on and after 9/11.
Where were you when you heard that Osama Bin Laden was pronounced dead?
You know where I was? I was in the hall of our apartment building on the phone with appropriately enough, 911!!
You see, my neighbor and I’m With Stupid’s fave intern Little Jimmy Stewart had just rung my doorbell. He was standing the in hallway bleeding profusely from his right hand.
I’m talking projectile bleeding folks, utter pain, and apoplexy due to a kitchen accident, he pleaded with me to call the paramedics.
I did, and I stayed on the phone with the dispatcher as I sat Jim down on the floor and tightly held pressure to his bleeding hand with two dish towels as I raised his arm above his head.
The paramedics arrived quickly and whisked Little Jimmy to the hospital. He has a few stitches and all is now well. Once again, Matt-Man saved the day. I am such a giver.
Speaking of the killing of Bin Laden…Monday was both quite an amusing and somewhat depressing day.
On the blogosphere, Twitter, and Facebook, political ideologies once again yet not unexpectedly to me, raised their ugly and cynical heads.
Some chick who is bitter that Bin Laden was killed during Obama’s presidency defriended me on Facebook. Another kooky chick ranted on Twitter about what a farce and “mediawhore” Obama is.
Talk radio downplayed Obama’s success in the action taken.
I voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primary, and although not a huge fan of President Obama, voted for him in the general election, and this past day and a half I have discovered something.
Some people question Obama’s patriotism, his “Americanism”...in fact, some doubt his origin of birth.
Some of the comments I heard from hateful, ideological clowns who loathe Obama prove at least one thing…
President Obama is far more "American" than are they.
