Therefore, I am bothered.
For the last five weeks, if not longer, I’ve been mainly stuck at home. Outside of FaceTime, Messenger and Zoom and the Virtual Happy Hours they provide, my main source of socialization is Mistress Myrtle.
So I’ve been listening to a lot of Pandora and Spotify.
Since I’m a broke ass ho’, I have the free versions – which means I hear ads.
Side note: I don’t feel bad about not being a paid subscriber – I’m assuming they make more marketing to me than they would off of my – what…$30 annual subscription?
Anyway, I’ve been hearing this ad since day one of lockdown
And I’m really all for it, just like the freeway reader boards that have no congestion or accidents to report, so now they read
Stay Home, Save Lives
I’m good with all that. Because we need to hear it, obviously.
That last one…goddamn, that’s hilarious.
But what I’m not fine with is them not making sense.
This ad I’ve been
hearing listening to all this time, makes a great point. Up to a point
Here’s the deal, the ad states that:
- If we don’t stay home, as many as 1.4% of Oregonians could die
- The average Oregonian knows six hundred people
- That means five people I know could die from
