Not as good as it sounds

Recommended Posts

Just so we can help each other avoid disappointment, I'd like to start a list of things that just don't end up being as good as they originally sound.

"cozy" hotel rooms

edible underwear

cross-country train trips

breakfast meetings

midget porn

promotions at work

50-50 splits

a complimentary "full English breakfast"

nude beaches

"New and Improved". Whenever you see this, get yer [bs] detector out.

Here's one audio related: "Low Noise Tube". Yeah, right. Like we would ever buy a "high noise tube"??? Hehehehe.......

Any form of advertisement for airline carriers. I am here to tell you that your travel experience will in no way resemble those ads. Making airline travel sound "inviting" is more difficult than making a trip to a proctologist sound comfortable, especially if you have experienced either one. It used to be with airline ads - "Fly Me." Now, it's "Sit down and shut up, or we'll call the TSA on your rear end." Enjoy those free airline miles......

The Chicago Cubs in 2007. It sounds as good now as it's going to sound all year, so be optimistic now - until there is a sufficient body of evidence to prove otherwise. It won't be long before that "evidence" shows up. When's football season start again??

Speaking of sporting events and particularly baseball, "Box Seats". In most ballparks these days, "box seats" encompass 75% of the ballpark (everything except the outfield and the last few rows of the upper deck, hehe). I remember when "box seats" were really good seats....you know, close to the field where you could actually see what the players looked like. Nowdays, they make sure they throw the "box" nomenclature on the ticket location somewhere, no matter how "average" those seats actually are. Today, you might be sitting in "Upper Deck Terrace Reserved Box seats sponsored by Bud Light". Soon, you'll probably be buying "box lawns" at your outdoor amphitheater[;)]

"I need a favor" coming from a worker standing in a foot of Uranium powder.

"This will only take a few minutes."

"We'll get you paid soon."

"I'll save you some money" on the phone with the body shop.

I've ordered three Heresy IIIs.
