Friday Flip-Offs 7/30- Robot Telemarketers: The Movie

29 Jul

Friday Flip-Offs is where you free your weekly angst by flipping off whomever and whatever wronged you. This is hopefully my first “Friday Flip-Off” of many!  

Late night talk shows- Flip Off! I watched ONE show and now I’m hooked. I haven’t slept well in a week because of your cheesy talk show jokes and fantastic guests. I wish I could get back into my old routine- watching crappy reality and animated shows early so I can get to bed by ten. Everyone keeps telling me to ‘DVR’ my shows but I don’t know how to ‘DVR’ anything.

Justin Bieber- Flip Off! Keep your catchy songs OUT OF MY HEAD. One of your songs came on and, without thinking, I sang along.

Awkward moment.

My ballet flats- Flip Off! I wore you out in public and found out why you were so cheap. I’ve slipped on paper, water, oil, and urine but I have never slipped just because my shoes hated me. After the second fall, I felt the floor but there was absolutely nothing that I could have slipped on. I can’t even wear you without slipping around like butter on a hot skillet. On the bright side, I could use you as cheap roller-skates.

People who join blog-hops but don’t participate- Flip Off! I clicked on your link to read what recipe you posted, not what color your kid’s poop was today. Adding your link doesn’t give you more readers; it just makes you look like a major jerk who can’t follow directions.

Telemarketers I know you have kids to feed but why do you need to call me? 

Telemarketers don’t have kids to feed because telemarketers are ROBOTS now. You can’t tell a robot recording to shut their mouth. Flip off, Robot!

I’m angry but I think the whole ‘Robot Telemarketer’ thing would make a great movie.


Note: Telemarketer Robot, I am SO sorry if you are a real person who sounds a lot like a robot. 

Fast food places- Flip Off! The summer heat and my busy schedule means I have to eat greasy cheeseburgers and drink sugary beverages. Your food is too addicting, cheap, and disgusting. 

I dreamt about french fries and chicken nuggets last night so I think I’m officially addicted to fast food. 

The blog-hop code is a script code that doesn’t work on so you’ll have to check out Kludgymom (who is also the mom of Friday Flip-Offs) for the rest of the people who are Friday Flipping today.

    Wow! So glad you are joining up. I hope you stick around. That was a heck of a bang for your 1st entry. Those were fabulous as if you’ve been flipping your whole life. Totally with ya on Justin Bieber and especially the people who link up only to go and find nothing remotely related. The robot telemarketer is hilarious and would make a great movie. You should submit that idea. I won’t be around next week, but hope to see more in the future. Great FFOs!

      Thanks, Alicia. I was actually writing and rewriting this post all week to try and make it perfect.

      I have director Stephan Spielbergo on speed dial so look for the movie in 2 low budget theaters next summer.

    Last week I decided I was going to visit and comment on every blog that was in the flip-off linky. I was terribly annoyed when about 5 of them were random links and 1 was for a blog where the person hadn’t posted since March. MARCH!!! Why was she linking up? Can people not read? It drives me batty. Ummm, clearly.

    • Sara @ Tedious Life July 29, 2010 at 11:05 pm #

      Exactly! She doesn’t have time to post but she has time to submit her link? She’s not going to keep readers around if she doesn’t post OR rudely doesn’t follow directions.

    Hiya! Thanks for joining in the flips this week! Nice first entry! I’ve flipped off nearly all of those things before myself. Obviously, the people who participate in blog hops and don’t follow directions really gets me. Especially when it’s my blog hop. I try to visit every person’s site that is kind enough to participate and it’s not courteous to roll that way. I do give everyone one free hall pass…they can come to the hop once and not follow directions. 2x and I stop visiting or wasting my time.

    I wish I could say my staying up late was due to a TV show, but now it’s due to blogging. SUCKS!

    Weird that the FFO code doesn’t work on I’ve never had anyone mention that before. I”m sorry!! 😦

    • Sara @ Tedious Life July 30, 2010 at 10:57 am #

      It’s really rude if they don’t follow directions for more than 2 weeks; do they even know how the whole blog-hop thing works?

      I’m used to WordPress not allowing great codes. That was the major reason why I want to self-host sometime in the future.

      I want my script codes. 😦

    I’m so with you on the robot telemarketers! I so love getting phone calls telling me that they can lower my credit card rate… especially since I don’t have a single credit card!

    Great flip offs!

      I was certain someone was going to think I was crazy because of the whole robot telemarketer thing.

      Nice to know someone else has heard their annoying robot message.

    Justin Beiber..arghafalfkjsdgfjnkxzldhjS. hate the kid and why? I don’t even know him. I just hate that he sings about love. Love???? What the heck does he know about love and girls? Oh, well I think its because weird people throw their underwear at him or tell him to sign their boobs. Who knows. Ick. Grow up and then maybe I will like you. Why don’t you go sing about skateboarding, math homework, or your mom. Dude, we are sick of it! Well I am anyway. For a laugh, go watch this:!

    Great post 🙂

      The video was hilarious. He should sing more songs about having crushes, not falling in love with that ‘one girl’.

      • Elle July 30, 2010 at 4:18 pm #

        so true! I actually don’t listen to his stuff but just the raving about him is annoying.

        • Sara @ Tedious Life July 30, 2010 at 10:42 pm #

          I wouldn’t listen to his stuff either but his music videos are so funny and overly dramatic.

    I agree with the fast food one!! I’ve been driving through McDonald’s a little too much lately!

    OHHHH my! I agree about that Justin kid and my 7 year old is in LOVE with him but my tween could care less. The robot telemarketers are easier to hang up you have to give them that at least lol. Have a great week and don’t you feel better already??? Hope so!

    • Sara @ Tedious Life July 31, 2010 at 3:56 pm #

      It IS easy to hang up but I hate having to pick up the phone in the first place. Hopefully, I’ll have a great week but I need things to ‘flip’ next Friday as well.

    Love your Friday Flip Offs! Discovered that on another blog recently and love that idea. Wanna try it myself soon too. 🙂 And I totally agree with your Flip Offs too. The fast food, the blog hoppers that don’t truly participate, the telemarketers. OY!

    Hey Sara, great flip offs! Thanks for the laugh! I’m sorry I am posting so late, but my stupid internet went down. I guess I will have to complain on my next flip-off session! I am going to subscribe cuz you crack me up, and I love to laugh! Thanks!

    • Sara @ Tedious Life July 31, 2010 at 7:53 pm #

      A few weeks ago, my internet went down AND the screen on my laptop cracked!

      Thanks for subscribing, going to check out your blog now. 🙂

      • Greta August 2, 2010 at 9:12 am #

        Wow that would suck! I guess I shouldn’t complain cuz my screen still works! Thanks for checking out our blog 🙂

    The linkers on blog hops who link just for the sake of linking annoy me so much!
