Commercial hyperbole is bugging me again.
If you get a new pair of glasses from VisionWorks (used to be America's Best), you not only get the glasses but a better you. That's pretty impressive. I've known a person or two who could really use a new pair of glasses from there. Hey, if I get some glasses there, can I get rid of 20 pounds? That would make me better.
Even more interesting is the United States Postal Service's commercial that states that there is nothing worse than going to the Post Office and standing in line. Goodness, if that is the most terrible thing that can happen, have we all been making too big a fuss over serious illnesses, accidents, and deaths? Are all our realities seriously whacked? I've actually done that standing in line thing many times; it's a wonder I've survived.
I'll add others as they bug me. Of course I realize that the commercials are not meant to be taken literally, but the exaggerated language annoys me. That's why I love my DVRs.
I've also seen some cute license plates lately so maybe I'll have to post about those again. There are some clever folks out there.
