I occasionally like to fantasize about what I'd do if I ruled the world, and now that I've saved up a couple new ideas, I'd like to share them with you.
First, if I ruled the world, I'd make sure no one EVER had to suffer through even one more of those interminable telephone messages that tell you the number you called (like I didn't already know that) and that no one is available to take your call (duh), and explain 14 different options for reaching someone else you DIDN'T try to call, before finally giving you the opportunity to leave a message - but only if you speak slowly and clearly -- after the elusive beep.
By the time that beep finally sounds, who can even remember what they wanted to say? What's the problem with "Hi, we're not home, leave a message?"
And another thing: If I ruled the world, the PGA and USGA would band together to restore some civility to the game of golf by zeroing in on the louts who insist on shouting creative and clever things like "IN DA HOLE!" and "YOU DA MAN!" after every shot during a tournament. These guys aren't fans of the great game. They're simply attention-craving louts hoping to steal the spotlight for a few moments from the players who deserve it -- and they need to be out on their ear.
Thank you for letting me vent.
I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my Point of View.
