All I Wanted Was A TV!

Written by Ed Williams

Have any of y’all gone out and tried to purchase a TV lately?

I hadn’t up til now, so I had no idea what I was getting myself into. We’d recently decided that it was time for us to replace our current TV, as we bought her back in 1986. She’s run perfectlyrepparttar entire time since, and is by farrepparttar 133322 best TV that I’ve ever owned.

Times change, though, and I came to realize that my TV has some marked limitations. It doesn’t have enough memory to play all ofrepparttar 133323 channels currently offered by my cable provider, andrepparttar 133324 speaker on it is really tiny. If I played an Elvis or BTO video I had to jack uprepparttar 133325 sound as loudly as I could, but if I got it too loudrepparttar 133326 distortion would makerepparttar 133327 songs unintelligible. It was a true dilemma, plus, add inrepparttar 133328 fact thatrepparttar 133329 screen was relatively small, and it all pointed towards my need for a new one.

I proceeded to gird my loins for battle, as I despise shopping about as much as I would a beets flavored ICEE. I can’t even tell y’all where most ofrepparttar 133330 major shopping outlets are around Macon, and I aim to keep it that way. The only thing worse than shopping is to have to eat low calorie foods, and since I’ve just finished three chili dogs, I’ll keep this week’s discussion focused on shopping.

After doing some research, I decided to shop at three major area television retailers, and one relatively small one. Thus decided, I promptly got in my car and started makingrepparttar 133331 rounds.

My first stop was at a large retail discount store, one that everyone knows, and I figured they’d surely have what I wanted. I went inside, andrepparttar 133332 first thing I discovered was thatrepparttar 133333 store was huge, as you could buy anything from food to gasoline there. I was as lost as one person could be, and I silently cursedrepparttar 133334 retail gods for allowing such monstrosities to exist. After asking several clerks whererepparttar 133335 TVs were and getting nada answers, I just happened to see some monitors hanging on a wall inrepparttar 133336 back ofrepparttar 133337 store. I immediately went back there, and saw that there were dozens of TVs, in all kinds of sizes, shapes, and configurations.

I‘m not kidding, there were big screen TVs, plasma TVs, TV/DVD/VCR combos, wide screen TVs, high definition TVs, wall mounted TVs, projection TVs, home theatre TVs, and that‘s just naming a few. How can you possibly decide which is best? Determined to find one right for me, I slogged my way through lots of sets, checking out their features and prices. I actually found one that I liked, a thirty-inch wide screen TV with stereo surround sound and high definition capabilities. When I askedrepparttar 133338 clerk about purchasing one, he told me thatrepparttar 133339 store was all out as they’d had ten of them til about a week ago, but decided to ship them all back to their warehouse. Strangely enough,repparttar 133340 clerk then told me they’d had two customer requests for them inrepparttar 133341 past couple of days. Go figure.
