For most of us, the Internet has been a part of our lives since we were ‘yay high’ (please feel free to imagine a short kid). But despite all that time to get to know each other, I’ve been noticing that –like some couples, if not most or all– the Internet doesn’t really get me. I’m beginning to think that it’s just interested in my money (not that I’m a Silicon Valley millionaire, not even close). But that’s all It is interested in. I know it!
Whenever I find myself reading or trying to do some research, I notice that a myriad of products are thrown at my screen. Do I care about these products? Um.
Absolutely not. I know why they show up, though. Maybe I was looking for references, someone else borrowed my computer, my phone or my tablet (yes, we ALL have a lot of crap). But that does not mean that I’m desperately looking for:
a) A dustbuster
b) An ISP (duh, I already have one)
b.1) Interestingly enough, the ads that came up were from the terrible ISP service I cancelled a while back.
c) A razor blade I hate shaving with a blade. I only do it about twice a year. I absolutely despise the ritual)
c.1) This hurts me, Internet. It’s like you don’t even pay attention to me. If you actually cared about me, you’d know that I hate shaving with a blade. I only do it about twice a year. I absolutely despise the ritual. I use an electric razor. You broke my heart.
And so forth…
So, to put an end to this quick post, I will quote my elementary school classmates during “Speech Class”…
“As a conclusion I would like to say:”
Stop trying to take my good-hard-earned dollars, you gold digger!
–End of rant.–
So I leave you with some screen-grabs; it is actually just a couple of days of this onslaught of ads.
Enjoy it as much as I did.
PS. Did I mention I loath shaving with a razor blade?
