OK, so if you’re not a medical person or someone who took a CPR class, you may not realize how TECHNICALLY BAD this LECOM television commercial actually is. So I have labored over the Jagoff-istrator to show you.
Now bad CPR is one thing.. but then they go to show ya the old “Gotta Jump Start Da Brutha” paddles and THEY are in the wrong place too. See the pic below for your quick “I wanna be a nurse or paramedic” quick-tip learning tool.
Now, if you’re not a medical person you may not care about the bad LECOM television commercials. That is, until one of their students or graduates comes to give you CPR or use the paddles on you when you pass out!
You may also say, “Who cares? They get their point across!” To that I respond with, would Pitt put out a TV commercial with one of their football players coloring outside the lines of their weekly coloring book? Nope.. they’d make that player hold a 400-level physics text book and be damned sure that he didn’t hold it upside down!!!!!
I say…….Hey Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, you paid a ton of money to shoot a commercial about your educational programs and you paid a SECOND ton of money to air those commercials down here in Pittsburgh, which, in case you’ve been under a rock for the past 10 years, is one of the Meccas for healthcare and LOADED with healthcare providers that watch TV, so ya might want to call your local American Heart Association for a refresher before you tell us how SMART ya are, Ya Jagoffs!!
Every rush hour there are long lines of traffic to sit in. And every rush hour, there are drivers who believe that THEIR schedule is MORE IMPORTANT than yours – so they slide up along the line of 30, or so, cars then try to eek in at the front of the line. (Cute, smiling girls are REALLY good at this!) Meantime, now BOTH lanes of traffic are backed up with people putting on make-up, shaving and reading the lips of the driver next to them trying to figure out what song their singing to.
Bring on this lady…..she drives past the entire line of 4 random dump trucks driving during rush hour, 6 tractor trailers, 2 school buses and all of the other cars. She also drives over top the HUUUUUUUGE white arrows on the ground that indicated the lane that she has chosen to drive in is a LEFT TURN ONLY lane..
When she gets to the stop light, she stops dead, puts her Right Turn Signal on and then sits there, blocking the rest of the traffic behind her until another driver, in the right lane, chooses to let her selfish ARSE over because they want to save themselves from all of the angry car horns coming from behind this lady.
So let’s give her the benefit of the doubt and say, she ACCIDENTALLY got into the wrong lane and SUDDENLY found herself in a rush-hour quandary.
Well then here’s a novel solution for that…obey the signs of the road and the flow of the traffic then pick a safe place to turn around and head whatever direction you want to drive!
Oh wait, you can’t or won’t do that because that extra driving time might make you late for work but, don’t worry, the rest of us all of jobs and bosses that don’t CARE what time WE show up for work, YA JAGOFF!
