They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
Hi! I'm Mike The Web Guy. My boss told me that I should start one of these blogs, even though I'm not "on the radio." After being told that it was a "good idea," I figured, "why not?" I could always use another thing to do. Things about me... I'm a HUGE San Diego Chargers Fan (Any SoCal Locals who want to get together for a game - COMMENT back at me and let's HOOK IT UP). I live in Clifton Park. I'm all about APPLE (sorry PC people). I have a woman who lives upstairs in my house who is related to me by marriage. We have two kids who pretty much run our social life.
Actual Headline: "My Mom Ordered One iPad And Best Buy Sent Five"
Alexa’s boyfriend got an iPad for Christmas from his mother. Well, that’s not quite true. His mother ordered one iPad, and had it shipped to him. What arrived on their doorstep was a very large and heavy box that was big enough to hold five iPads. Because it did. At the core of this story is an ethical dilemma. Best Buy wasn’t calling Alexa’s boyfriend or his mother to find out where the iPads had gone. The average customer service call-center rep probably doesn’t have instructions for this situation in their binder of scripts. Alexa sent off an e-mail, but received no response. Let’s stop the story here for a moment, Choose Your Own Adventure-style, and ask:
Now back to the story… Legally, anything shipped to your home is yours to keep. In Alexa's case, she contacted Best Buy and was told, 'we acknowledge that we obviously made a mistake, but in the spirit of the holidays, we encourage you to keep the additional iPads and give them to people in need – friends, family, a local school or charity." Wow.
