sometimes i want to end it all

I called ticketmaster today to order some tickets to the Charlotte Bobcats and when i selected NBA games I thought that perhaps all those biblepocalypse books were right and i had been found out as one of the heathen unworthy. Of all the voices in the world, of all the celebrities you could possibly recruit to lend their voice to an automatic ticket ordering system, why, why in the name of jerry west would anyone pick Bill Wlaton. The man has one of the most annoying voices and personas in the modern era. What shithole mall did they pull the focus group out of? i'd rather Iverson rap the prompts in my ear, i'd rather Yao stumble through them in broken english, i'd rather listen to Mark Cuban froth through the phone line. I'd rather have anyone other than Bill fucking Walton guide me through the oh so simple process of purchasing NBA tickets over the phone. unreal. i hung up the phone and ordered online.
