Hey folks! I just treated myself to a wonderful Christmas present - a new Bose Wave radio.
For years I've seen the ads for the Bose Wave radio in the back of my magazines. I've always been intrigued but after reading the small print of how much the monthly payments were, I wasn't too keen on paying over $1,000 for a RADIO, no matter how good the sound. What? Do I want to listen to commercials in fantastic sound? That's the reason I don't listen to radio . . . the commercials.
But still, in my wanderings I have occasionally encountered a Bose radio and I have to tell you folks, I love the sound that comes out of that little box. So, it's always been in the back of my mind to one day take the plunge and buy one.
Well, that time came two days ago. While returning from a birthday lunch with my neighbor Barbara, I asked her to stop by the Bose store at the Tanger Outlet Center in Rehoboth Beach. Well folks, I found exactly what I was looking for. A fantastic piece of equipment that not only plays my CD's but has an app that I can hook up to Internet radio.
Upon immediately entering the Bose store, I was greeted with a friendly and knowledgeable salesman (cute too, which always helps) who listened to me (oh how often to you get a salesperson who actually listens to you?) and found exactly what I was looking for. And all for only $599.00. And of course NO TAX because I am, after all, shopping in tax free Delaware. None of that 14% Toronto sales tax or even that 8% Philadelphia tax. And of course none of the attitude that I usually encounter when dealing with other salespeople. No pressure here folks, "Jim" just listened to what I was looking for and found it. He even offered to take the box out to my car. I was tempted (oh how I do like to be waited on my a nice looking man) but I told him I could manage.
When I got home I was a little leary about setting up the app on my iPhone but folks, no problem. I find lately companies are making it much easier to set up things digitally. Maybe they're taking their clue from the late Steve Jobs. Whatever, I am one happy customer.
Now I can play my Scrabble boards, check my e-mail and update my blog with fantastic musical accompaniment which makes for one Happy Ron. Frank is pretty happy too!
