Georgia Advertising On a Budget

This post wrote itself, courtesy of Mr. David McTaggart. See, I'm driving down the highway, on my way to Wally World for eight boxes of Acuvue contact lenses. (Gettin' the hook up.) And there he was, in his GMC van.

404-yadda, yadda, yadda - number, something, maybe a 1, number
(Wha? You thought I would publish this guy's number? I'm nice, but nice enough to provide free adverts...)

But, it wasn't a really nice magnetic sign on the side of his van or a nice tire cover on the back. No. Obviously David is trying to save on his advertising budget because this is what I saw:

So, here's the funny part. I see him while I'm driving. I'm laughing my ass off. And I'm pissed because if I try to take a picture of his car with my phone, I'm so going to wreck. And that? Would suck. So, I sadly drive away and pull into Wal-Mart, only to see him pull in behind me. I stealthily park several spaces away, watch him exit his car and walk up to Wal-Mart, and then take my pictures. I was just waiting for someone to call me out.

Yeah, so all you need is a car big enough to carry the equipment needed to do your business, and a Sharpie® to advertise said business across your car.
(Note: Sharpie® will not work on a dark-colored car. White, gold, silver, or yellow is best.)

Thanks for writing my blog post, David. I needed the material!

I can just imagine the security guys in Wal-mart watching you on the parking lot cameras trying to figure out what the hell you were doing.

The Ferryman said...

But ultimately you are going to hire him, right?

Not Afraid to Use It said...

Lemme guess? He is cash only, right?

Gypsy said...

That would so happen down here in Florida, too.

I kind of admire his grit, though. I mean, can't afford signage? No problem.

Hilarious! We recently had a tile guy out to the house for a job. On the side of his panel truck he had a handlettered cardboard sign that said: "Tile."

He didn't get the job.

Love your blog.

That Chick Over There said...

Oh Jesus God, that is hilarious.

Jenn said...

AWESOME!!! I'll keep it in mind as a marketing tool!

Unknown said...

Fan-friggin-tastic! And not only were you not nice enough to advertise for him, you also weren't nice enough to block out his tag number. :-) hee

yea. that's about all I have about that one! LOL

Ok, Where Was I? said...

Funny! Oh yeah, you're in Georgia. I remember. It almost makes me want to write something on my car just b/c I can.

Momma - And probably WV, too!

Avitable - I'm surprise I wasn't arrested! :-)

Fab - Well, yeah. Sheesh.

NATUI - Oh, most likely. But, I would probably pay him in signage! :-)

Gypsy - Yeah, I have to admit that at least he's trying!

American Idol - Maybe he knows David the hardwood guy? Glad you stopped by!

Betsey - HA!

That Chick Over There - Hey, woman! Thanks for stopping by! That is pretty funny...

Jenn - I think my husband should advertise his business that way...

Teri - Well, you know. I'm just a screw-up that way! :-)

Melissa - Hee hee!

OK, Where Was I? - You go, girl!
