As many of you know I am a HUGE wrestling fan. I love any and all wrestling from Ring of Honor to WWE…and on REAW this week they aired a promo for three guys that will be making their debut soon. I have been waiting for this, as I have loved what they have been doing in WWE NXT, as well as FCW before that (FCW is like the WWE’s Double A minor league, and NXT is like Triple A…if that makes sense). Check out the video…it’s trippy and awesome…
The centerpiece of this trio is Bray Wyatt…you might remember him for a short stint as part of the NXT/Nexus angle (but he was known as Husky Harris – awful name, and really no personality to the character)…and he is Mike I.R.S. Rotunda’s son. This new “Cape Fear”-like character is awesome…the guy is amazing on the microphone, and I really think this is going to make things very interesting in the WWE. Back when he was in FCW, he cut this promo…which gives you a taste of his Jake “The Snake” Roberts vibe when it comes to how he perpetuates his character! Great story telling…
I almost didn’t come to work today…while we were off, I finally brought my Powerball ticket in to see if I won something (from when it was up to 600 million), and I actually won! Sadly…it was only enough to buy a couple items off a value meal menu…
According to a survey of 700 flight attendants, you're most likely to get an upgrade to first class if you're a man in your 30's, who's a little dressed up and traveling alone. There things you can do to increase your chances of getting a free upgrade. Here are the top ten according to the survey.
1. Be Friendly and Polite.
2. Be a Member of the Airline's Frequent Flyer Program.
3. Travel Alone. 72% of flight attendants said they'd be more likely to give a seat upgrade to someone who's flying alone.
4. Make Them Aware of an Injury.
5. Don't Dress Too Casual.
6. Tell Them You're On Your Honeymoon.
7. Know the Flight Attendants.
8. Travel During Non-Peak Hours.
9. Come Up with a Good Sob Story. For example, maybe you're headed to a funeral, or you just lost your job. Whatever it is, 35% admitted they'll probably fall for it.
10. Look Your Best. 31% said that being a well-groomed, attractive passenger will increase your chances of getting upgraded to first class.
Based on the ways to get a free upgrade to first class…when have you “Pulled a move” (lied, exaggerated, etc) in order to get something for free? Here are the texts we got:
I suggest wearing a 'yelp' tshirt out to restaurants.. You get great service!
I got my $200 tattoo for free :) funny thing is I was just being myself just joking and having fun with the guy and he gave it to me Free Maria Port orchard
While in the military, I always traveled in uniform and got bumped up to first class more often than not.
Every time I order pizza, I order one and call back when it's delivered and say it was wrong.. Free pizza every time.
Tell the waitress it's your friends birthday hoping to embarrass them and get free dessert. –Fry
I've never got an upgrade but my wife and her big breasted friend did. They had balcony seats at a Garth Brooks concert and got front row. He was filming.
I call my cellphone company and complain about my service and how my phone is always messing up and they give me free stuff like money off the bill or best of all new phones. James
I used to take girls on first dates to expensive restaurants and then ask her to just follow my lead...I'd then pull out a pretend ring and propose. Either the restaurant commped our meal or someone there would buy as a congratulations... Plus the girl would be on a emotional high...and I'd get laid every time
