There’s a commercial that has been running for who knows how long that makes me roll my eyes and giggle every time I watch it. The commercial is for a retractable porch cover, and there’s really nothing remarkable about the spokespeople or the product. The main selling point for the product seems to be that it gets hot outside and you need this wonderful product to keep your porch cool and comfy so you can enjoy your outdoor space. What makes me laugh is this line (which is not a direct quote, just how I remember it):
It gets so hot outside that I cannot use my deck, and must retreat indoors!
And all I can think is:
Oh, the humanity! I have to retreat to my well-constructed and air-conditioned building in order to escape the weather!
This is what is commonly referred to as a First World Problem, and I am joining the meme with my own story of woe, because last week I had no internet.
