I'm for hire…

I was sitting here thinking about many different things as I lie in bed and watch the new episode of Doctor Who.  Right now is the perfect time to be in the petroleum business, at least if you’re not BP.  Honestly, I think it’s still pretty good to be them but more on that later.  You might be asking “why is it the perfect time to be in the petroleum business and not BP?”  Simple answer, because you’re in the petroleum business and you’re NOT BP.  Seriously, I hope you’re not that thick.

That being said, I’m offering my services to Shell.  I am apparently a marketing genius, because I thought of the greatest ad campaign in the history of marketing.  Are you ready for it?

However, there is still a flaw in this marketing program.  Apparently, people don’t care if you’re BP or not.  I personally will not buy anything from BP or any company I know that is owned by BP.  Not because of the accident and all the oil spilling out.  No, I am not buying from them because of their response to the accident.  I’m not telling people to boycott, but it’s just I don’t want to give money to a company that’s apparently ran by a bunch of monkeys with brain damage.  I know there are a lot of people that feel like me, but apparently not at many as I thought.

I drove past a local BP and there were people lined up to get gas.  I shit you not.  It was the craziest thing I ever saw.  There were gas stations withing visual range that weren’t half as busy, but people still chose to give these assholes their money.  Blows my mind…
