IMPORTANT NOTE: The following are the opinions of our In-House Pawn Shop Blog Scribe, Gpawn. They are his alone. They may or may not be comments that we agree with. At Glendale Pawn and Jewelry, we are smarter than to agree or disagree with anything the resident curmudgeon has to say. Read at your own risk…because we do!
So where's MY Jetpack?
I know I’m a few days late, (I’ve had a nasty cold, etc.) but I just HAVE to say it…
The Super Bowl! Was that a monumental waste of time or what?
Beyonce at half-time, what the heck was that all about? Gpawn is old enough to remember…brace yourself…SUPER BOWL NUMBER 1…that’s ONE as in Numero Uno baby! You know what we had for a half-time show at Number 1? We had dudes flying around the stadium with jetpacks.
Yup, JETPACKS…cause that’s what the future was supposed to be like looking forward 47 years. So where’s my JETPACK? Why am I stuck in traffic burning $3.31 gasoline and going nowhere?
Anyway, THAT halftime was a LOT more exciting than Beyonce thrashing through some tired pop music that sounds like every third song on the radio dial these days. (For the record, Gpawn is a HUGE Beyonce fan…he’d just like to hear something GENUINELY new from her…perhaps a “break-out” single? Maybe something that will prompt me to say…THAT was Beyonce?)
Then the lights went out. They don’t have a decent pawn Shop in NOLA to get some cash to keep the lights on for awhile? I mean really?
Then the Niner’s made it look close before the Ravens won…just as it was scripted.
Even the commercials were awful. Anybody have a favorite this year? Anybody? Anybody at all? Buhler?
But once again, we survived the thing. A couple BILLION dollars went somewhere and now the rest of us are back at work. Once again…no Jetpacks either.
ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: Your team wasn’t in the Super Bowl this year? Well, I’m a Chiefs fan so let me give you a helpful bit of advice since my guys haven’t been there since 1970…yeah, let THAT sink in for awhile.
Our mission is to serve EVERYONE, not just sports fans, and to make EVERYONE comfortable with being at our store and doing business with us either in-person or online. We buy and sell firearms. We sell outstanding jewelry at -30% -60% off of retail. We also sell designer purses, televisions, home electronics, tools and just about anything you can imagine. Have too much stuff? We turn that stuff into fast-cash. Got too many iPads, iPods, designer purses and old gold jewelry? Come see us! We’ll turn anything of value into CASH.
OH! Did the car spring a leak? Did Power Company send you a little “Surprise” in the mail? Do you have a kid that just discovered that it’s not easy to fly like Superman? Well, we make fast, hassle-free cash loans on anything of value to get you through all those” OH NO!” moments. (We’ll even regale you with our collective “OH NO!” moments just to let you know that you’re not alone! We’ve been there too!)
But someday there WILL be Jetpacks and Glendale Pawn and Jewelry will be making loans on them! Perhaps people will one day have more Jetpacks than they need and Glendale Pawn and Jewelry will be buying them for hassle-free cash!
But until such time, we have some FANTASTIC February specials! (Click the graphic to learn more.)
Okay, let's summarize. Gpawn is very old and he's a long-suffering Chief's fan who would really like to have a Jetpack. There's some FANTASTIC February deals here at Glendale Pawn and Jewelry and you need to get down here and stretch your tax-refund dollars at the very best place in town to make them go further!
Oh! Before we forget! (As if THAT would EVER happen...) "We're glad you're here!"
