Something happened to me yesterday, that has never happened to me in 26 years in radio. Someone conned our receptionist out of a prize! It was a well-devised plan. Just walk in the station, say you win, get the prize. I still can’t believe it happened. (We keep wondering what would have happened if the receptionist would have called them on it? “Oh, I’m at the wrong station.”?)
I’ve seen and made people do a lot of wacky things for prizes, and I understand how cool it is to win. Once, I won $20 worth of gas. (That’s a big deal to me, as it’s the only time I’ve ever won anything, except Bingo, or whatever. In our business, we can’t play contests, of course.) But this, this one takes the cake.
Know these 3 things, thief;
1. I have schooled our receptionist. That trick will never work again
2. Stealing is stealing, even if I was going to give it away.
3. Karma is a bitch!
Enjoy your stolen prize!
