A Public Service Announcement Worth Noting…

I  like clever people and I like smart marketing, so when I ran across both on Facebook I thought it was worth noting.

This comes from the Facebook page of Nate, a close friend of my son Noah.  Nate is a soldier in the U.S. Army (stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina) and is a great kid from a great family.

A public service announcement from Nate:

The Buckle is a trap.

I went there to buy one pair of jeans and this hot little number rolls up on me.  Not a big deal you might think.

I end up buying 3 pairs of jeans, 3 shirts, a necklace, and a watch. I ALREADY HAVE A F**KING WATCH!

I equate it to the same principle as you shouldn’t go grocery shopping when you’re hungry or you’ll end up buying way too much.  Don’t go to The Buckle when you’re a single soldier that’s around dudes all day long every day or you’ll get sucked into buying a ton of clothes that look “just amazing” on you.

This is a public service announcement.

On the plus side I’ll be in North Dakota again in 4 days with quite the wardrobe.

Well-put Nate and well-played Buckle.  You make a great point Nate and in the process you gave me a good laugh.  We’ll be watching for your homecoming – you’ll be easy to spot – the guy coming off the plane looking amazing in clothes from The Buckle. 😉

Day one thousand and eighty-six of the new forty – obla di obla da
