Bitter Buzz

Hold on, let me get this.

Hold on, let me get this.

I can always tell how one of my posts is doing not because of the stats, but how my phone(they don’t call it a smart phone for nothing) reacts.  If it starts scaring people around me and buzzing, I know I’ve found a bitterness many people can relate to.  Of course, my phone buzzes for a lot of things, so it could just be an email I’ve been expecting from a Persian Prince who has promised me  $50 million if I give him my bank account number (you know, so he can transfer all his money there). Metal detectors also buzz in order to tell a security officer that you have a deadly weapon in your pocket (your keys).  I’ve decided that I’m going to invent an app that warns you about all things in life. It will warn you about things like:

Females: “Honey, so I was talking to Janet and then I had to do this thing, blah blah blah and when I come back, I need the dishes done. BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ. REMEMBER TO DO THE DISHES!

Males: “This will be a great gift for her for her birthday.  A new pot for her pot and pan collection…. BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ DON’T GET HER THAT! GET HER FINE JEWELRY!

Television: You’re watching the playoffs and this game is a blowout and BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ, GO TO TNT, A BUZZER BEATER IS IN PROGRESS!

Job: You are humming along updating your blog, or checking out the highlights of the game last night, or the latest box office report, and BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ, STOP DOING THAT AND PUT IT ON YOUR FAKE SPREADSHEET, BOSS IS COMING BY.

In Class: You are sitting in class, not paying attention because you were up too late last night playing video games and not studying, and the teacher is droning on about the bell curve or something. “Let me tell you an obscure fact, BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ, YOUR TEACHER IS TELLING YOU SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO BE ON THE TEST!

Driving: You finally get past some traffic and can get home after only 2 hours of sitting in bad traffic and then you have a downhill with open space, BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ, THERE’S A COP AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL.

I promise officer, I was paying attention the whole time.

I promise officer, I was paying attention the whole time.

Spinach: I think I will have the spinach tonight, because it’s gross and will never get stuck in my teeth. BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ. HAVE THE CHICKEN! IT TASTES BETTER AND IT WON’T GET STUCK IN YOUR TEETH!

Is there anything in my teeth?

Is there anything in my teeth?

 

Kevin Costner: Hey let’s go see that Kevin Costner movie about him being on the water/being a post apocalyptic mailman/in a romance.  It’s only three hours long! BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ. GO SEE JUNGLE BOOK! IT’S BAD, BUT AT LEAST IT IS ONLY AND HOUR AND A HALF!

Extended Warranty: I think I will skip on the extended warranty.  BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ. GET THE EXTENDED WARRANTY! THE SECOND THE REGULAR WARRANTY RUNS OUT YOUR CAR WILL GO TO GARBAGE!

Buzzing Bee: Oh look, there is a bee.  BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ RUN FOR YOUR LIFE HE’S GOING TO STING YOU AND IT’S GOING TO HURT FOREVER!

Blogging: I have this really great idea for a blog.  Make it about everything you are bitter about. BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ.  DON’T DO IT! IT’S A TERRIBLE IDEA! DO A GOSSIP BLOG WHERE YOU CAN MAKE MONEY!

This Post: You start reading this post BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ. BAIL! DITCH THIS POST. GO TO ANY OTHER BLOG!

Wow, my phone hasn’t made a sound today. Did I forget to turn it on?  What situations would cause this magical phone app to start buzzing for you? What would it tell you to do instead?

ARRRRGGGHHHH

  1. Dating: You are jogging through the park, minding your own business, when an attractive man catches up to you and starts flirting with you, and BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ, RUN FASTER, HE’S SECRETLY MARRIED!

    Friendship: You are on an amazing date with a fantastic not-secretly-married guy when your phone starts ringing. You ignore it because Cutie McCuterson is about to kiss you for the first time, and BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ, IT’S YOUR FRIEND WHO JUST WENT THROUGH A BREAKUP, AND SHE NEEDS YOU TO TALK HER BACK FROM THE LEDGE, AND THAT’S WHY YOUR PHONE IS RINGING AT 11:30 AT NIGHT AND BY THE WAY, YOUNG LADY, WHY AREN’T YOU HEADED HOME BECAUSE DON’T YOU KNOW NOTHING GOOD HAPPENS AFTER MIDNIGHT, AND PICK UP YOUR PHONE, YOUR FRIEND NEEDS YOU!!!

    • See all the applications this app could have? I think it would prevent a lot of dating mishaps. Only problem is people would have horrific dating stories to tell. Unless it was about the potential disasters that app was protecting them from.

  2. Well, hang on, which Jungle Book? The 60s one that’s got a lot of catchy songs but is actually kinda bad, or the 90s one that has a lot less animation and I’m guessing is bad but I never watched it either?

  3. A great phone app would be for Ron Popeil’s Ronco Company. This is how it works: I turn on the TV with the channel stored from last night’s sports game, and lo and behold, it is Ron Popeil pimping his Showtime Rotisserie and BBQ appliance for three easy payments of $19.99. The app goes BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ BUUZ and adds it up with shipping, handling and sales tax included and it is over a $100 bucks. The app then has an infrared beam to remotely change the channel to a safe station.

  4. I would definitely need a BUZZ alert anytime I started talking to family members or my brother-in-law’s wife. The BUZZ alert would be to remind me to just keep my mouth shut and not say anything. (That would be best for everyone involved!)
