WhatsApp WTF

Seems like just another bitching here … but allow me to critique an annoying add I’m seeing while watching the NBA Playoffs …

The WhatsApp Pigeon Ad.

  • Who goes to a ship-center anymore to send a letter?
  • Why lines? Even if you are doing this, there’s no line. I kind of speak from experience on this one –
    • Worked for FedEx Office (formerly known as Kinko’s) and dealt w/decreasing shipping 15+ years ago.
    • I drop in to my local UPS store every few weeks to return Amazon packages … no lines.
  • Music? See above.
  • Do these seem like users that care if their ‘SMSs’ or text messages are private or not? Do YOU care? And if you DO care – what the hell kind of messages are you sending?

I don’t know. Maybe I’m missing something here. This commercial is just really really … irritating. Seems like a waste for ‘Meta’ (ugh).

Traveling this week, was bored, tuned in to the CNN/Trump ‘Town Hall’.

What. A. Freakin’. Train. Wreck. I turned it off after about 10 minutes of hearing him spew his same old lies about ‘stolen election’ and his just overall bullshit – including his degradation of women and pitch on January 6 being a ‘beautiful day’.

Are you kidding me?

Granted, the interviewer wasn’t any less-partisan or professional.

I just can’t believe we STILL have to give air-time to this Bozo. Not about policies to me with him – he’s just a terrible person. I don’t care what party or ideology you follow – this guy is just a Vile Human.

Great Leaders are not Vile Humans.
