Have you ever seen the movie Raising Helen? It's a pretty damned good movie - not to mention has one of my new (to me) favorite actors in it. But yet again, I digress.

If you've seen it - remember the part where they make Helen audition on the mic at the car lot? To make sure she speaks clearly, pleasantly, friendly? Yeah well - tonite I realized that ain't such a bad idea at all!!

On the way home I stopped to get gas. I push the "pay inside" button and the most horrific, grating nasal voice screeches at me "Go 'head, pump 1". OMG. I swear I jumped at least a foot in the air.

What the hell were they thinking giving that, that voice any exposure? YIKES. I'm thinkin' I need to suggest to the station manager he start auditioning his clerks before he lets them get on the mic.

Holy cow. That was a hell of a way to end a Monday!!!

That's why I try to ignore those speakers at pumps. I can't understand what they say.
