Grinds my Gears

Hello good people.

Today I want to mention some commercials I see on TV. I hate Sonic DriveIn's commercials! They just tease me. They show all this great food and fail to mention that the closest Sonic to DC is 53 miles away. I mean look at this commercial:




Doesn't that make you want something? they have slushie happy hours!! I can bring my own vodka to mix in. I'm not saying don't show the commercials just don't show then in demographics where you don't have a store.Ii just looked thru my blogs and I mentioned this back in Jan'08 so I've been bothered well over a year by this.. lol

The other company on my list is Jack in the Box. They are even worse because they don't even have a store in the mid-atlantic area. The closest one is in North Carolina!!! the closet one to New York is in North Carolina. You see my point right? why even pay of TV space in DC? that's just a tease. A oh so good tease... lol Did I mention jack in the box has some really addictive food? Breakfast all day addictive? It's a Californian fast food staple. So the next trip south I take I'm making pit stops at Jack in the Crack and sonic.

ps. I'm considering making a twitter account for the blog. Before I was against twitter and all things it stood for but I'm constantly surrounded by random funny things that i should probably share and a twitter account would cover me when I don't feel like blogging. What ya'll think? do you need more of my randomness in your lives?

awww man i had the same issue with these commercials. I crave sonics and DQ's but is there none within reach so i'm sitting there craving the deliciousness that i see on tv but i'm left with the stomach equivalent of blue balls.

and great twitter sounds like you'll be a great addition

I HATE HATE HATE THAT!!!

Red Lobster is the worst -- the closest one is in the next state! Why for the love of all things good and holy are you showing me butter drizzled on lobster and those delicious garlic cheddar biscuits when I can't have none unless I drive for 2 hours?!

I was feeling you on the Sonic commercials but one is being built about 15 minutes from my house so I'll be good. Although the food was sub-par to me the one time i had it. Could've been a fluke.

I usually only see Jack-in-the-Box commercials during sports games. I KNOW there isn't one anywhere near here.

As for Twitter.....eh, dunno. I just realized that I Twitter through FB, lol. I don't sign into FB on my computer. Phone only and I only read the status updates. So as much as against Twitter I am, I think I've become a follower without actually being a follower, lol.

I'm sorry.

JIB and Sonic are on almost every corner down here so I can sympathize but I can't.

I be feeling you though because I love White Castle and when they show them here it's bullshit!

Ok so I can't say I understand you as far as Jack in da Crack goes because I'm from Cali and we have just as many Jack in the Box as we do Starbucks...

Sonic is good! The closest one to me is about an hour and a half away...hell no with the traffic here in LA are you CRAZY?!

BTW I came across your blog and I really enjoy your posts =)

Give twitter a try cause I'm a little confused and need someone to figure it out for me.

You know what's sad is when the lady at Jack and the box says hi to you like ya'll related. Last week I thought she was gonna lean out the drive thru window to hug me. Singing...mini sirloin buuuuurgers, HA! Licking fingers.

Come join me on twitter. It is so addictive.

And I have no idea where the nearest Sonic is to me yet they show the commercials all the time.

LOL!!! I feel you on that Sonic stuff. I hate seeing those commericals because the food looks so good and I 'm not about to drive to Bmore for a slushy and a burger. Eventually did get to try it down Norfolk and I must say it's all the rave. If you join twitter I will need a quick lesson, but would not miss hearing your random thoughts. They sometimes brighten my day. Whenever I need a good laugh I know Super Dave will deliver.

I had a twitter account for like five minutes...

[That by the way was all the time I needed to realize I don't have that kinda time.]

Oh well ::shrugs shoulders::
To each his/her own [I guess].

P.S. I'm glad we don't a Jack in the Box in New York.
Lawd knows I'm fat and broke enough. lol

I don't need nothing else taking my money and forcing me to buy new clothes.

Nope...sure dont!

Hey Dave, on your way down to Fredricksburg, bring me back a Route 44 Cherry Lime-Aid. You can drop it off on you way back.

My thing is that I missed Waffle House until I realized there was one in Dumphres.
