    When rich tech bros say shit like this “Our dream is to free the world from traffic,”

    No, your dream is to be a billionaire doing blow with hookers in your hot tub while your business operates in a regulatory free for all and, of course, you pay zero taxes for any of it.

    I was thinking on a recent road ride how my next bike might not be a custom titanium dura ace, but one of those high end Trek e Roadies. Dolomites, here I come!

    Shit that annoys you

    Companies that place outside sales calls from a spoofed local number annoy me. When I get one of these calls at work I try to be polite, because work, but drilling down to their location is always an easy path out of the call.
    “Hey, you’re in (some tiny town 10 miles away that has 7 residences and a gas station), huh?”

    “Oh, no, we aren’t….”

    “Why does caller ID say you’re local, then?”

    “Um, well, we’re looking to partner with you on…”

    “Dude, you started this call with a lie. You want to partner now?”
    focus.

    Haha. Yup. They all supposedly dream of "making the world a better place." Kind of a running joke in HBO's Silicon Valley. If you haven't seen that show, go binge it stat!

    Mega annoying

    I answer but don’t say anything

    If it’s a local human they say hello. Hello.

    If you say hello they transfer you to the call center.

    Fuck spoofing. That should be illegal

    Nah, these are live agents. Usually they go through a few different people before they get to me, which means they have to lie or talk a good game to not get filtered out. Wastes so much damn time….

    Ha, their doing it wrong. I'd cold call the guy high enough on ladder to have a secretary.

    Sec: Hello, Mr. Verybig's office, this is Molly.
    Me: Hi Molly, actually you are the person I really wanted to speak with. I'm Wooley12 and wonder if you could help me? Whom should I call to speak with that would be in charge of rewarding your salespeople with a travel mug or custom gold ring?
    Sec: Sure, I love to help people and you made me feel important. That would be Ms. Notasbig at 555-555-0002

    So I call and leave a message on Ms. Notasbig's voice mail.
    Hi, I'm Wolley12 and Mr Verybig's office told me that you would be the person to talk to about travel mugs and gold rings for your top salespeople.

    Almost always got a callback.

    I've sold lots of other stuff. From classic sportswear for the Rubenesque figured women and camera straps to Kodak. Sold the Bills their XXV Superbowl losers ring. My final sale before hanging it up was tee shirts ordered by a mountain guide while he was climbing Mt Rainier.

    At least that's what he told said secretaries. Remember, this is back in nineteen dickety-two when such things were considered acceptable office culture.

    Anybody else catch how just about every major corporation out there has changed their logos to be all rainbow during Pride Month? Yeah, that's fine. I really don't care about that. But what's NOT cool is how they conveniently left their logos alone in the Middle East and elsewhere. My point being that if they TRULY cared about the LBGT cause, they'd leave it as is EVERYWHERE, and if those countries have a problem (which they will), then said corporations should have the balls to tell those countries to go fuck off. Ain't happening, which proves their compassion is 100% phony, and that's what I find annoying. Especially since they're bombarding us with how rad they are for supporting the cause all over commercials, LinkedIn posts, Twatter, etc. They are SO nauseatingly sanctimonious about it in their art-piece short film commercials. Walk the walk, guys!

    yeah, this x100. all the corporate rainbow-washing is such a thinly veiled cash grab, especially when you look at many of these companies' continued donations to anti-LGBT+ politicians and causes. the duplicity is astounding.

    you would have liked my Uncle Marty. He sold everything that could be sold. Barrels of eye glass frames. Cheap cookware sets--he'd go into a bar or gas station and sell his "last samples" of $250 cookware sets for $25 which was a fair price. Lalique in his prosperous days. He eventually did very well cold calling machine shops and selling machine tools. At the time all machine tools were sold in person. He eventually had a boiler room full of guys selling--totally legit.

    Corporations give money to anyone with half a chance of winning. They don't have political opinions beyond what's good for their profits. Corporations aren't people after all.
