While I was at Sam's Club today I was approached by the Direct pizza guys! I was not in too much of a hurry so I took their punchlines. Man were they ever stupid! They were not even capable of selling birthday suits at a nudist colony!!! The woman asked me how do I get my TV programs. I told her, "OTA, FTA and HITS." With a puzzled look she asked, "Is that is DirecTV or Dish?" I replied, "No I have a BUD, a 10 foot Big Ugly Dish!" She went to the fellow coworker looking for help and I soon found out that it was her first day as a pizza lady. Well after running my info past the guy he replied, "Man you need some new equipment!" "NO I DO NOT!" was my response. He was saying how great their stuff is and that he never looses his signal in the rain like I used to with pizza because DirecTV has a lot of satellites up there. I asked him which satellite his dish was pointed at and he had no idea. He had no idea what a SD picture was but said he did not receive HD service. After telling of my sister's DirecTV problems he suggested that she update her equipment. I finally got it out of him that he just has the small pizza dish and says that the smaller the dish the better the thing works! When I told him that my sister had a new LNBF he asked, "What is a LNBF??" I even blurted feedhorn and I still did not get a capeesh from him. I get the feeling that he thinks that a transponder is something on Star Trek!!! He also explained to me how FTA is illegal and that I should not be doing it!!! However they were impressed with my little spew when I told them about some of the stuff up there! Well this is my 25 minutes of fun in a nutshell!!! I headed home with a grin on my face and thinking about what little they know about their product that they are trying to sell! Maybe I should get a job selling pizza!!!
