Every morning, I do my physical therapy exercises and I find that I whine less if I have the TV on when I do them. Usually tuned to my favorite: the History Channel. Anyway, the last week or so, they’ve been playing this commercial:
and dammit if it doesn’t make me cry from happiness every time. At first, I thought it was just that I was hormonal. But a couple of weeks have gone by and I still love it just as much.
I know, I probably should be irked that a corporation is playing on my sentimentalities to get my business. But as advertisers are having to become more and more creative and artistic to grab people’s attention, I’m happy to see that at least one is going for the humanitarian values.
(BTW, I have my car insurance with these folks and I grilled them yesterday on what they would do if I had an accident and wanted to see my choice of doctors for non-emergency injuries. I shared with them a friend’s insurance/accident horror story and wanted to know what kind of guaranties they would give me that this kind of run around wouldn’t happen to me. I kept pushing the point and the guy finally said, “I hear what you are worried about and you’d think we are just some big corporation, but I’ve worked other places and these people here are human and reasonable.”)
So, folks, ‘fess up. What kinds of things make you cry that you’d be embarrassed to admit to? I know you are out there. 🙂 Anonymous replies welcome.
