Today's Stootsi includes:
30 Minute, $5 Prepaid Phone cards - Five Pack (do the math = 150 mins, $25 value) w/$1 s/h
NOTE : THIS DEAL IS GOOD IN CASE YOU NEED TO USE PHONE CARDS ...
OR BUY FOR SOMEONE WHO NEEDS EM
( I KNOW most of YOU GOT CELLPHONES )
In these days of cell phones are water (not bottled), the thought of needing a prepaid phone card is fleeting. Gone are the days of not having instant communication abilities at your fingertips. But then, one of your top IT employees (sorry, Two.Lincolns) decides to take a trip to a remote location of the Dominican Republic where there is no cell phone service (supposedly). Ok, perhaps there's phone service but it's "roaming" and uber expensive (supposedly). Murphy's Law kicks in back at the Stootsi Ranch and we need Two.Lincolns like a Captain 'N Coke on the back 9.
Ring, ring, straight to voicemail. Oh ya, no cell phone this week for TL...great. How about Instant Messenger? Quick glance at the away message returns this result:
No Information Provided
Finally, after a few torturous hours of thumb twiddling the phone rings.
Four weeks later and one 87 dollar six minute phone charge from Verizon and we're selling prepaid phone cards. Not quite Murphy's Law - I think Two.Lincolns calls this simple coincidence; Mike Tirico calls it irony.
And we're not just selling one prepaid 30 minute phone card. It's a nice 5-pack, with 1 dollar shipping. This leaves you with one prepaid phone card for emergency use, and four other cards to use for prank calls. Hey, some things never change.
PS: I used a pay phone once , called using the service provider mentioned on the payphone ( Big Bend national park area , no cell phones there ) ......paid $30 for 9 mins of talk......half it was service charges and connect fee ...
