Can't get away from it...
For sometime now our Walmarts have tv's at the checkouts going non-stop. A little irritating to me, I don't like commercials at home and mute the tv when they come on. We DVR almost everything so I skip the majority by fast forwarding. I probably miss out on new products or something I really might be interested in, but I just don't like the louder sound levels of commercials...have you noticed they are always louder than whatever you were watching?
Yesterday, at Murphy's Gas station, the one that's often next to Walmart, there it was. Mounted above each gas pump was a tv, blaring out a mix of music, commercials and little "USA Today-like news bits." ....Red Stripe energy drink, only at Murphy's Gas stations... Gas Station Radio. How do you feel about this, irritation or just a part of our life?
