Alright I wasn’t planning on it but to keep this thing interesting I think I am going to back and forth between wonderful works of customer service and employment that deserve nothing but praise and the best, and those who may have been having a bad day or another product that I threw money away at. I kind of like this idea and it will keep this thing from sounding a little too repetitive.
Sound good? Good.
back to bugs
Unfortunately, this little topic doesn’t have a Joe at the end of it to come save the day and brings us to my first case of money not so well spent.
Have any of you out there ever actually owned or tried to use one of those bug zapper things that we have seen oh so frequently in either cartoons or other TV shows?
These little things. Not the lamps that have a light to draw bugs and zap them but the tennis racket looking contraptions that is supposed to make swinging around taking out the world of bugs around you a breeze.
Well, for any of you out there who have never tried one or were maybe considering giving one a try even if it is just for the fun of it let me save you the time and money.
These things suck. Period.
who buys these things?
Now I don’t live in the middle of the woods or country and I am not constantly being swarmed by mosquitoes or flies and am in constant need of some relief. But last summer a bunch of friends and I took a road trip to a huge musical festival in Michigan called Electric Forest. Who else misses summer more than anything in the world? There is nothing I love more than 75 degree weather with a cool breeze feeling like God himself fanning you with your gym shorts on. I really need to move south, just talking about summer is making me realize how miserable I really am in the winter.
Anyways; for any EDM or festival fans out there, you know that Electric Forest is one of the biggest and most amazing festivals of the year and this was my first time going so needless to say I was super pumped. It is an outdoor camping festival going from Thursday-Sunday and this was the longest time I had ever been actually camping. So being the resourceful guy I am, I decided to do some camping shopping and bought what I thought to be all the essentials. As you can probably assume by now, this stupid bug zapper was among those items.
we probably killed 2 bugs
Anyone who has ever been to a music festival before, you understand that things can get a little rowdy to say the least and pretty much everyone isn’t exactly in the most “clear-headed” state of mind throughout the entire weekend and was exactly the case with my friends and I.
So on the first night after all the shows were over we all headed back to our camp site to carry on with our drinking and partying until the sun came up. When we got back to camp everyone was getting all situated and thinking I am about to be the man and savior of our mosquito infested camp site, I nonchalantly pulled out my brand new bug zapper to show it off.
Needless to say, there weren’t many other topics of conversation for the rest of the night besides me and my stupid bug zapper. Rightfully so too, the damn thing was worthless. I maybe killed 2 mosquitoes the entire weekend with it and it is way more of a hassle than a tool.
We ended up zapping as many random things as we could of course and just saw how far we could take it. The majority of people who buy these things have to be buying them to just mess around and see what they can zap, right? Or maybe they are all just as dumb as me and like to think they are about to save the day.
Stay tuned for some positivity next!
