eagle76 1 Posted August 23, 2006 Share Posted August 23, 2006 Heard yesterday about a "special" edition SI coming out which features uat and their "history". A supervisor that works for me told me this story. One of his employees asked to leave work early for his lunch break and would probably be late in returning. The employee told his supervisor that he was going to buy the new SI with bammar on it. This guy is a bammar fanatic and wears bammar hats/shirts religiously. This employee has had some financial problems because I know I have signed several payroll advances in the past 6 months. He just upgraded his tranportation by purchasing a flood damaged $600 car. This guy is really a nice guy, though. He came back from lunch an hour late and lost an hours pay. He was tickled to death because he was able to buy 23 copies of this rag. I have not meant this to demean this individual in any way. It is also not meant to poke fun of his bammar-isms. I'm sure that this expenditure of over $150 is a major setback to him and his family. But the SAD part is that he was bragging to his supervisor about his purchase and how it was a great investment. He plans on keeping these in plastic and in storage until his son goes to college and this will help with the tuition. SI knows how and to whom to market "special" editions to bolster their profits. SI should be ashamed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
