Striking Verizon Workers vs. Keith Stone: Who Ya Got?

Posted: August 12, 2011 by Keith Stone in Verizon, Who Ya Got?, working for the weekend

My sister gave me a sweet new HDTV so I headed over to Verizon (FiOS FTW) to get an HDMI wire. When I got there, the store was surrounded by people in red shirts with signs who were chanting anti-Verizon slogans. Apparently, Verizon workers were on strike. As I approached the store, I got booed like I was Queen James at the Garden.

Luckily, boos fuel me like gasoline and I got my wire from some friendly scabs. I had to endure some more taunting but I managed to wave at everybody as I headed home to watch Jersey Shore in HD. I honestly felt bad about the whole ordeal. I considered showing solidarity and leaving but I fucking wanted to watch some high-definition TV. Should I really have to continue to use my shitty old set?

These are two enormous entities in the world of entertainment, but there’s only one question to ask: Who Ya Got?
