X Finity

It amazes me that these big companies spend thousands of dollars on ads and are so far “out of touch” with mainstream America.

XFinity has two ads running in our area right now, both starring Amy Schumer. One shows her in an XFinity Store with her non-service dog playing tug of war with her pant leg. Really?

The second shows Amy sitting at an XFinity Store in what looks like her pjs, with a blankie, playing with the voice activated portion of the TV, while minority members of the community wait their turn. The staff not only have to ask her to give up the remote, but pay for her pizza because she ordered a pizza but “doesn’t have her wallet”? And that’s not White Supremacy? Really?

What happened to ads that promote products and good behavior? Come on XFinity – get with the program.

Growing up a Friday the 13th baby can be stressful without permission to use your magic wisely. But my journey has been full of once-in-a-lifetime adventures and a joy (for the most part). I've raised two daughters; have two grandchildren; created my own very successful line of beadwoven jewelry and ornaments; had leadership positions in political organizations; worked for a member of Congress; been a Journalist with a weekly column; a Book Reviewer; and now a Blogger. Over time this blog will contain my writings, book reviews, magazine articles, and ramblings (known as a platform) I'll use for the Historical Fiction I've started writing. Please ask questions, make comments, and suggest writing ideas. I value your input and ideas.
