Cell Phone Shots – Volume VII
November 4, 2009 by admncc
I’m happy to report that “Cell Phone Shots” is back after a short vacation. This has been one of the more popular segments of The Constant Complainer. But to be honest with you, I just hadn’t taken any good pictures recently.
For those new to this segment, here’s how it works. I take strange and funny pictures on my camera phone and then we laugh and/or complain about them. And since this is a complaint-based blog, the latter is usually my preference…
So without further adieu, here we go…
Sleeping Employee – I always chuckle when I see people holding signs on the street like this. It just seems like an incredibly boring job. But this guy has found a way to deal with it – not hold the sign up and just sleep. Bravo, sir.
Holiday Cards – I saw these cards for sale at Urban Outfitters and they pretty much fit my mood for that particular day. Urban Outfitters has some of the best off-the-wall retail items I’ve ever seen.
Highway Billboard – I was driving from Cincinnati to Cleveland and this billboard was located out in the middle of nowhere. My feeling – yes I know, but who felt the need to take out a paid advertisement about it?
Mall Kiosk – I hate shopping. So I usually walk around and people-watch, while my wife shops. This is an actual kiosk at our local mall. Nobody was working it though. From a marketing standpoint, I disagree with their choice of location. However, I did see one person stop by. It appeared to be a wife, who quickly wrote down the phone number before rushing away as her husband came down the escalator. My guess – she thinks he’s cheating.
P.S. Someone told me that today is Big Bird’s birthday. Cool.
