I keep seeing these ads for Xbox Kinectx (?) and fitness games and dance games. I really like playing these games! At other people’s houses. I tried to become an electronics person. I did. Really. But it’s so confusing! So many choices and technical decisions. There’s always a newer version that’s just about to come out, with more features and stuff. And the newer stuff makes the older stuff that much cheaper, but the older stuff isn’t that much different from the newer version. I always get overwhelmed, and give up until I try again and this vicious cycle repeats itself.
With audio/video-related gadgets, I never know – do I have the right connecting cables? Where do I get the right cables? Will this work on my tv? I’ve learned from experience that the people who work in Best Buy are (in each and every experience I’ve had) — numnuts. Idiots. They wouldn’t know the right cable to connect their ass to their hole. And don’t get me started on buying a new phone. Or a new tv. This is why my place is full of old electronic stuff and relatively gadget-free. I just got an ipod last year, for workout music. Terrible. I think I can see tv shows on it, but…why would I watch tv on my ipod? I have a tv. Sheesh.
Instead, I find that I’m a different type of consumer — a clothes & shoes consumer! It’s easy to spot a cute pair of peep toe wedge booties, sparkly tank top, or a cardigan with a nice swing to it. No user manual or technical expertise needed. I just need my mental Rolodex of what’s already in my closet and BAM! – I’m in business. Oh – and a sense of personal style, which unfortunately, is as lacking in some people as the electronics savvy is lacking in me. And no “restocking fee” if I need to return something.
One day, I’ll see some new gadget or cool feature on someone else’s tv or something electronic that re-ignites my electronic curiosity. I’ll forget about the frustration I feel when I just go to the Best Buy website, let alone actually walking into that damn store. With that in mind, I’m posting the following vacancy announcement:
The House of Samee is in need of someone to sort this stuff out for me, make a recommendation – keeping my budget in mind, and then go with me to buy the stuff AND come back and help me install it correctly. Easy on the eyes, smart, funny, single, non-relatives are preferred but I am not above drafting one or more of my brothers or man-friends to assist me in this task.
