Re: Look at what Daddy bought

Yeah that's a nice T.V. I recently bought a Sony 42" HDTV and I'm loving every sports event I can find. This TV is one of the reasons I work as hard as I do at my job. Well not that hard.

I was polite and just kept declining, eventually she asked why I didn't want the extra warranty (for $499!) and I said based on the research I've done I don't feel it's necessary.

I wanted to say that I used to work for CompUSA and I know that you're not making much money off the TV itself, it's the warranties that you're cleaning house on.

I still can't get over her telling me that plasmas only last 3-5 years.
generally i reply with one of two things:
1. cause you're pushing it so hard, it's obviously nothing but free money for you.
2. are you telling me that you sell shoddy equipment? if you're so eager to sell me something that's about to break, why should i trust you with a warranty as well? i mean, why shouldn't i just find a place that doesn't deal in reject electronics?

things get a bit awkward, but it's still funny.

Nice Plasma, Matty. Any particular TV can have troubles, but the consumer reports gives a good average rating of quality. So rock on.

Have you got surround sound? The vibrating recliner? The beer helmet? These are not options...

Hey, Matty, I sure hope the NE game looks better on your plasma than it does on my POS tube tv.

I won't be able to see the game until it's re-run on NFL Network tomorrow, but it seems like I probably won't bother.
