Don't Believe The Tripe

Howdy all! I've got another crazy day at work ahead of me so I'm afraid your going to have to talk amongst yourselves for a while. Before I disappear from the emails I wanted to leave you with this nugget.

I was watching live TV last night (I know crazy right? It was an accident and I promise to never watch live TV again) when I saw an AT&T commercial bragging about their awesome coverage. In one scene they show a gaggle of shinny happy people chatting it up on the beach as if there were cell towers hidden in the coconuts. I don't know what beach that was supposed to be but I can tell you for a fact as an AT&T customer it isn't Ocracoke, NC, where I spend my summer vacation. For the past three summers in a row, I have had zero coverage and no bars at all anywhere in Ocracoke from the center of town to the edge of the water.

  1. sprint lies too. I live 3.5 miles from the sprint store and 1.5 from the center of town and the signal in my house is so weak that the phone doesn't even ring half the time. Until like 20 mins later when it tells me I have a voicemail. bastards.

  2. Wait. You spend time in a place actually called Okracoke? That sounds more like an order you'd place at the local greasy spoon.
    "uh, hey, ahd lahk n okracoke, thaynx."

  4. I love the fact that it doesn't work there. Why do you think I'm going back next year?

  5. Okracoke sounds like an illegal vegetarian substance.

  6. Just be glad you don't have T-Mobile. I don't get reception in my own East Village apartment, it's so bad.

  7. Do you want to have cell phone service on the beach? I wouldn't miss it. On the other hand, I didn't have service (Verizon) in almost the entire state of Mississippi.

    and Lioux---haha! there is some kind of weird veggie substance called okara patties. Or something. I only got 'em once.
