Yesterday CNN Headline News was doing a story on something to do with "Hamsters for Kerry." As part of my job at KLIV, I tried to localize the story by calling two pet stores in the San Jose area to ask if there had been a run on hamsters. The first one hung up on me, then put me on hold indefinitely, then put me on hold again. The second hung up on me. Twice.
I even identified myself! At least the 2nd store told me how much they sold for ($12.95/apiece!).
Oh well...off to Sunday brunch to tell this tale to others.
