Evolution and Cell Phones

By David Bebo

Darwin is right! Evolution is happening right before our eyes. The human body has a new extremity and it’s called the cell phone.

Cell phone technology is increasing rapidly and with talkers, texters, web-browsers and angry bird fanatics that are unable to put their devices down, it is no wonder that the cell phone is the latest appendage of the homo-sapiens.

Emma Hurst, one of the first to go through this evolutionary process, says that her cell phone is her life.

With its endless capabilities and speed faster than thought, it’s only natural that humans would eventually succumb to become dependents of these powerful machines.

“I would literally die if I didn’t know where my cell phone was. It is one of the most important things I have,” said Hurst.

Because evolution is a process, not everyone has mutated. Many people use their cell phone as a tool for navigating or calculating. The cell phone has not yet become a working organ for the user, but is well on its way.

“Besides talking and texting I really just use my cell phone for work things like email and such,” said Justin Shotwell, a specimen currently evolving.

The cell phone has many practical uses, but its full evolutionary potential isn’t reached until it has to be surgically removed from the user’s hand.

The new addition to the body has caused problems. The human race is going to have to find a solution to driving, walking and many other amenities that may prohibit the utilization of this sacred device.

Unfortunately the natural selection has not been so kind to some. Jayson Nix, one of the few left behind in this evolutionary process, still just uses his phone for talking and the occasional text message.

“My phone is a phone and that’s all I use it for,” said Nix.

Only time will tell if this is the next step for the human race.

We can only speculate that in the future, children will be taught in history class of a time when humans had to figure things out for themselves.

Are you addicted to your phone?

Customer Service Theft

Customer Service Theft

By David Bebo

It’s happening everywhere. Consumers are stealing from retailers across the country and it’s probably already happening in a neighborhood near you.

It’s called customer service theft and its storming the nation. Consumers are coming to brick and mortar stores for information on products, and then purchasing the very same product online. Wasting valuable time of retail sales associates while trying to catch a bargain.

The savings are tremendous. On average consumers are probably spending just a little less online than they are for the gas to get to these stores and then back to the internet.

Sean Mackinder, manager of an Abbadabbas shoe store, says that he has noticed an increase in foot traffic but sales seem to stay the same. He then explained how customers openly admitted to trying shoes on for size but had the full intention to buy them online.

“I guess people just want to come in here, look around and then ask me a bunch of questions. Most of the time I have what the customer is looking for but they just want to buy it online because it is five dollars cheaper,” said Mackinder.

The problem with customer service theft is that it is consuming retail associates valuable time.

“I work off commission and I have bills to pay. I don’t have time for people to come in here and run me around and then not buy anything. I would rather spend time with customers that are actually interested in buying something from me,” said Ben Neuhaus, a sales associate at a local Abbadabbas shoe store.

Although the internet is great for convenient shopping, it lacks the necessary search engines that can provide consumers with knowledge on products. The consumer is now forced to go waste somebody’s time.

Danny Czeczil, a frequent online shopper, said that he enjoys the convenience of online shopping.

“I just think buying things online is easier. If I am curious about how something looks or want more information about it I’ll go to a store and ask somebody,” said Czeczil.

Fortunately for retail sales associates a solution will eventually present itself. In the future stores will no longer be able to compete with online businesses and will have to close their doors. Only then will the retail associate know peace…and poverty.

Do you prefer online shopping or would you rather make purchases from a local store?
