Ask Ty...April 24

Q: Ty, two questions:

1) How come the blind woman walking down the street didn't run into me but her daughter did?

2) How come the Starbucks sign says: "Our promise. Your drink should be perfect, every time, if not, let us know and we'll make it right" but they can't figure out the 80 year-old man asking for a "regular" coffee, "not venti" size?


Ty: Good questions and even better observations.

The blind woman didn't run into you because she's blind and is utilizing the spectrum of other senses to compensate for lacking vision. She's accustomed to what she hears, smells, tastes, feels to get around and live an otherwise ordinary life. As for the kid? Kids are retarded.

Ah, once a very long time ago when the world had this shit called "film" I went into a Ritz "One Hour Photo" Photo Center and asked for them to process said film. It was about 1:00 in the afternoon and I said, "So I should come back around two?" And they said, "No. How 'bout 5:30." Confused I asked about the one hour jive. I was instructed, "Sir. One Hour Photo is a slogan, not necessarily a service." Oh. As for Starbucks? Starbucks is retarded.

Just guesses.
