English language costs me money

English language costs me moneyThe English language is strange. English is actually a West Germanic language that originated in England. That’s not as strange as parts of the language though. Just a few months ago I overheard a conversation where someone was being goofed on without knowing it…

I’m at an airport in Las Vegas bored waiting to board a plane. Although I wasn’t under an eave or any overhang, I decided to eavesdrop on people around me and see if I could entertain myself. There are a couple of persons talking about people they had played a game of poker with, though this poker game didn’t involve any pokers or prodding tools.

The conversation had made it’s way to a small blind and big blind.

Another person walks up to the already in-progress conversation and after hearing just a couple words decided to interject, saying “I didn’t think that blind guy was big”. Hearing this I started listening a little closer, though I didn’t actually change my location closer. There was no laughing at this point, instead the initial conversers decided to play with the guy that came late (girls would think coming late is better than early and guys think it’s bad for girls to be late unless they are attempting to conceive).

The discussion now becomes about blinds. The conversation jumps all over the place by the initial two debaters, starting out something like the following.

Guy 1The blind guy tried to sell me blinds.
Guy 2There’s no way the blind guy that didn’t post the blind would sell you blinds.
G1I wouldn’t lie about the blind blinds salesman.
G2Maybe you misheard the blind blinds salesman that didn’t post the blind.
G3Are you two making fun of me?
G1Are you blind?
G2Talk about the blind leading the blind.
G1That blind led the blind into the blind blind.
G3Shut up!

Of course this wasn’t as coarse as it could have been. The first two guys could have played like they were in a play a lot longer and kept the third guy wondering what was going on, but they were obviously too excited about their ability to use the word blind.

So now I’m wondering about blinds for my house and wondering if there’s a chance I could find a poker game with a blind blinds salesman on the big blind. Until that opportunity arises, I’ll stick with buying blinds from someplace that doesn’t yet advertise blind blind salesmen.

A former neighbor of mine moved from Vegas to the neighborhood I lived in, back around 2004. He was a nice. He actually sold and installed window dressings for a living. I was curious, I asked about some kitchen window blinds and found out that his pricing was less expensive than the local Home Depot or Lowe’s store. The pricing seemed really good and the installation made things much greater for me, as I’m less handy than a blind seeing eye dog. When I asked what blinds he had for sale he just laughed and told me that I needed to visit the online store he bought blinds and shades from in order to find what I wanted. So online I went.

Curtains, mini blinds, shutters, are some window drapery hardware and window blinds offered by quality companies. I was actually inundated with possible purchasing solutions.

Do I need blinds? Mini blinds? Shutters? Curtains? Mutliples of some sort… I’m just looking to keep out the sun, which is something that I thought just hanging towels over windows would do appropriately enough. I was wrong. Live chat was available on the website and contrary to previous live chats I’ve been in, this person actually seemed to know how to communicate and had product knowledge. And the gallery actually made me want to get more things.

After listening to one airport conversation and talking with one neighbor, I had been convinced to replace all of the house’s windows and cover them appropriately.

That’s the last time I but my butt into a conversation I wasn’t invited to participate within.

  2. We have been looking for relaly simple blinds for a while kind of like the reed ones you get at IKEA. They are intended for our office space which gets full sunshine during the day making it impossible to read off your screen and heats up if there is no dimming. We wanted an affordable price, easy installation and didnt want it super dark during the day. The reed versions we got previously were just too transparent’ when it was dark and the lights on.These are a perfect in between, not too dark during the day when you still want some sunshine peeping through, but also private enough you don’t feel like everyone can read the text off your tee shirt at night. The only downsides I would say (which I kinda expected): 1. When installed the metal pulleys are showing toward the room which is not so pretty; 2. The ropes are a little longer than I think are needed but there are little hooks delivered with them that you can screw in next to the blinds that allow for quick roll up so they don’t get tangled; 3. The screws they give you for affixing the blinds themselves are little cumbersome but regular half inch screws I had lying around made it work; 4. I would not recommend them for a bedroom window outlines are still visible. For an office or guest suite they should be ok.All in all though a resounding five stars for that little ounce more privacy, unbeatable value for money, easy installation, and pretty coloring. For this price, they are a steal I went ahead after purchasing two 24 and bought another matching 36 to go with. The supplier delivered them all, no shipping costs, almost next day (even though it was standard delivery) great product and great service from the supplier.

  5. Bonne idée. Attention! Sans photo certains vont essayer de mettre la chaussette du côté de la tête de la guitare si vous parlez de sillet. Il vaut mieux parler de chevalet ou à la limite de sillet de chevalet (pour les chaussettes les plus fines). Bonne astuce.
