Sure, people have been trying to sell you on ketchup for years by talking about how we just can’t wait for the catsup to start flowing out of the bottle and onto your plate or bun or whatever.
The ketchup company was, I think, pretty clever. It was trying to take a bug and turn it into a feature. That is, having to wait for the catsup to leave the bottle was a pain in the butt, but its advertising was trying to make us think all that waiting was building anticipation and making the taste even sweeter.
I never bought into that.
I hate waiting. Hate, hate, hate.
Not a big fan of waiting is what I’m trying to say.
The worst days I ever had in any job I ever held were the days leading up to me leaving that job. Everything grated and all the stuff that used to be just okay, started making me feel like I should be ramming my head into walls just to relieve the pain.
So, of course, I’m absolutely in love with these days and weeks before we head out of town for a short vacation at the beach.
As the months slowly trundle off, the weeks roll away and the days vanish into the past, I’m beginning to scout around my home to see which wall could most use a quick update.
Wish me luck.Share on Facebook Tags: A Dude's Guide to Life, Advertising, Anticipation, bug, Bun, Butt, Catsup, dude, hate, Job, Ketchup, Ketchup Company, love, Pain In The Butt, richard, Trundle, vacation
