Chase Sapphire blows its chance to make my summer
You know, Chase, I put up with a lot of crap from you.
Women who inform their husbands that No, Sorry, we can't go on that dream vacation you've cooked up, because I just used our hoarded Rewards Points to buy myself a dress. "Men" who blow through other rewards points by attending Rock and Roll camps. Women who use theirs to mount giant phallic symbols with their boyfriends (I never got this one at all- why would she consider using HER points to help HIM buy her a ring?) so that they can stand on top of said phallic symbols and, well, look around for a while before climbing back down.
And now you give me some privileged twat wading in the surf, trying to contact your Pakistan-based phone bank, and you can't even end the ad by having this pampered dick drop his freaking phone? Because that would have made up for so very much.
Of course, he would have picked up a brand new I Phone from the nearest Apple Store- probably on the boardwalk- using his Chase Sapphire Rewards points. But still, I would have had that image of Mr. Entitled fumbling his precious phone into the surf to keep me warm when times are tough. Thanks for nothing, Chase.
