COLUMBIA KNIT – MADE IN USA
BEST DAMN Rugby Shirt ON THE PLANET!
Ah….. The all mighty distraction machine of the 21st century… The smart phone!
Not American Made and Why NOT?
My son ( 19 ) and his addiction to upgrade this telecommunication device ( like all 19 year olds ) leaves me numb via yet another 2 year (sign here please ) contract “…But this is the biggest and baddest distraction machine yet”! Just a mere 7 years and 12 machines later (do the math- that is from the age of TWELVE TO 19) his mother and I are about to be sold on the latest and greatest foreign built (this one being an HTC blah – blah – blah ) distraction machine yet!
I do not text – nor do I surf or push tiny buttons every waking – walking moment of my life!
I use this… NO LAUGHING!~
After six months of proud ownership – this new – upgraded – almighty – distraction machine unfortunately went into a speaker malfunction …WAAHHH! But I will admit that AT & T and the phone MFG company was good (YEAH) and the warranty held water and another HTC blah-blah distraction machine found it’s way into the hands of my son and there were HO-RAHS once again!
Short lived on the Ho-rahs, bummer – the new distraction machine was unfortunately used as a basketball and even though is was caught on the first bounce, it was wounded – very wounded – broken speaker-cracked glass barely text-able wounded! And all that happened just 12 hrs prior to his new distraction machine safety case arrival – wounded! Damn, a black cloud has graced our home front and I feel another contract lurking for a pen once again.
6:30 last evening on the date of 11-22 Two-thousand and thirteen!
We get At&t on the horn (that’s old school talk) after 45 minutes of touch 1 for this or press two for that we get David S. ( who is now Americanized from Canada and is working for AT&T in Spokane, WA) He picked up our call and strategically asked each question slowly and precisely and 45 minutes into all of this he ended up being kind, patient and full of answers – we will call him the guy of the evening, or that guy or David!
OK then…Long story short…yup new contract – yup – new up grade – yup different phone and just prior to completing this call, it happened – 55 minutes in and my son William accidentally hangs up the phone. The look on his face was a yup…PRICELESS!!! I’m looking at him, he is shaking his head, hands in the air, tear in his eye “What the…”! I slowly get up and tell him ” ain’t technology grand ” tap him on the shoulder and leave the room. I run upstairs holding my breath because its coming. First a back of the throat snort then a HA! (years of phone payback) HA! HA! HA! HA! ( hate to but I have to) then Wahhh- HAaHAaHAaHAaHHAaHAaHAaHAHAHH! Tears in my eyes – start to stutter – laughing and leaning crying and almost peeing! I know he can hear me and as I am catching my breath and then his phone rings, yup the one with the bad speaker and a crackling voice says ” William this is David from AT&T” i hear music LA – LA – LA LAAAA!!!!! Atta boy David you called back – all is well – phone is ordered and I have a new two year contract.
Want the Dream…Buy American!
I realize that is nothing American made about phones, but HEY look at this case, it is…! ROKFORM
