Which Husband Are You?

I hate to beat a dead horse but you remember the post I did a few days back about the local jewelry store commercial, directed to the women, which said that, if your husband bought your Christmas gift from their store, he is saying that you are more rare than diamonds and more precious than gold?

Today, I heard that commercial again and then, a couple of hours later on the same radio station, I heard a commercial from that same store except this time the commercial was directed to the men. The man commercial states that if they shop at their store, they can park right in front, they don’t have to fight the crowds and they can be in and out in ten minutes.

So, husbands, the way I see it, buying jewelry from this store is a real crapshoot. Depending on which commercial your wife heard and/or believes, you are either a selfish bastard who ran into Fuckit’s Jewelry Store at the last minute because you could get in and out and spend the least possible amout of time shopping for her or you’re her prince charming because you obviously think she is more rare than diamonds and more precious than gold.

Good luck.

And the little woman says, "You oaf. You could have got that for 50 percent less on eBay. Don't even think I'm getting hot over this."

Old Horsetail - I like the way that woman thinks. Well, except for the oaf part.

Horace Finkle said...

Hey, I like your blog! Definitely worth a bookmark!

If you want a really good laugh, visit www.horacefinkle.blogspot.com - People these days just don't get to laugh enough, and here's my remedy!

Horace Finkle, 13 years old, you should be out drinking cheap wine on the street corner with your village elders! Jeez, dude, how about enduring puberty and getting back to us! When we're dead. And it's not really a good laugh until we say so! Signed the old people on the 'net.

Laurie said...

Horace - I loved your blog, very creative. (By the way, don't listen to Dick.)

Dick - Why so harsh? I thought his site was very clever. Whether or not he is actually a ghost, let alone 13, is actually irrelevant. It's a unique blog and I enjoyed reading it.

Hi Laurie, with 2 divorces I've struck out on both (a) and (b).

Laurie said...

Peter - It's rough out there.

Have you seen the Sirius ad? The couple are having a 5th anniversary dinner. She says, "I love you" and gives him Sirius as a present. A waiter is coming out of the kitchen with a cake that says, "I want a divorce." The husband motions him back. Advertising companies should be shot.

Laurie said...

SO - You just never know what I might find entertaining. While in the same vein as the ads I've been complaining about, that one actually made me laugh. I guess it's because I was so surprised. It's still wrong though. So, very wrong.

Laurie, I haven't dropped in for a while and dammit, you're funny! I need to visit more often.

My crazy wife doesn't like jewelry, so I'm off the hook for this one. But if you hear any ads for a park-in-front, 10-minutes-in-and-out vacuum cleaner store, let me know!

Laurie said...

Tim - A vacuum cleaner? She sounds like my kind of girl! I like the ones with the swirly water in them.
