Have I told you guys that my life is funny? Well, at least the car insurance people think so. They were laughing at a recent claim I made when they left a message on my answering machine. I guess they love their job, or they just realized the ridiculousness of the message and couldn't help but laugh before they got the whole sentence out. Or maybe they were just laughing nervously because by refusing my claim, they were letting their company off the hook. I really don't know, but I'm not laughing.
You see, I was at a local supermarket about 5 miles from my house one day when my grocery cart ran away from me. Well, it rolled downhill about 6 parking spaces and hit a car with a man sitting inside. It startled both me and the man, me because I had been busy trying to make sure my cantaloupe and watermelon were in a location in my car where they would not roll around too much, when I heard the bang. I think he was getting ready to pull out. Either that, or he waits on hilly parking lots for absent minded housewives to lose control of the grocery carts, hit him, and have a husband who is a stand up guy, wanting to pay the guy with the small dent in his car out of pocket, since the car insurance people denied the claim.
I would have been better off if I had hit him with my car, because then the insurance would pay for it.. Correct that, not hit him - hit his car with my car. I also think it would be cheaper to melt down gold bouillion and insert it into the dent. The impression left on his car is the size of a man's middle finger, so it couldn't take much gold to fill it right? The estimate is $834 and some chump change. I am so not laughing.
Well, I did laugh when it happened to Edith Bunker in the 70's sitcom, "All in the Family", but this is way different. There is no laugh track to help me laugh about this. Apparently insurance people don't need laugh tracks, though. The message they left on my answering machine said that "a shopping cart is not a vehicle. *snicker*."
Anyway, I have to dig out my homeowner's insurance now, not remembering if we got the $500 deductible or the $250. If they pay this claim at all, we still have to fork over the deductible. I'm hoping they don't think it's too funny. I know I don't.
Okay, enough about my funny stupid life, now on with the stupid summary. It's all about using filler in your summary to make it longer anyway. Just ask Landru.
So, last time the majority of the general populace that makes a point of voting for their favorite 4th guy from the left on the evolutionary chart decided to dial, text message, email, or vote online. If you have more than one email addy, you can vote for your caveman or comic 3 times per addy. So how many of you signed up for another email addy just so you could vote another 3 times?
The show starts with Jay Mohr coming out on stage to big applause. This is NBC's filler, along with the 20 minutes of so of commercials, which I won't bore you with.
Jay Mo: "Fantastic. You guys are the best! Oh, yeah! Woo! Welcome to Last Comic Standing everybody!"
He explains that each comic will have 4 minutes before their mike will be turned off. He explains the voting procedures again, and does the NetZero product placement again. I already have NetZero, and I'm not impressed.
