Are you geek enough to wear this?
A few months ago while looking through one of my favorite Web sites, thinkgeek.com, I stumbled upon this pretty cool shirt. I thought it would get some laughs at an upcoming conference. I placed my order, and even paid extra for 3-day shipping to make sure I had it in time. Here’s where the trouble starts – I neglected to read the fine print. As it turns out, the 3-days starts from when THEY ship it, not from when I order it. And, it only counts weekdays, not weekends. So, my shirt was waiting for me when I returned from the conference. I could have returned it. I actually meant to return it. Each night before bed I would see the box sitting on the floor next to my dresser and think to myself “Dang! Gotta get that RMA number before my 30 days passes!”. As you might have guessed by now, I never got the RMA number. I could still wear it, but while I may be geek enough to wear it in a room full of geeks, I am no where near geek enough to wear it any other time.
You now have an opportunity to benefit from my negligence and laziness. I’m going to give this shirt away to one of my Twitter followers. I’ll choose a random name at noon (CST) on September 8th – one week from today. Just follow the simple steps below, and this shirt could be yours.
UPDATE: Forgot to tell you, it’s a men’s extra-large shirt.
The rules are simple;
- Follow me on Twitter
- Leave a comment on this page, any non-spam comment will work. (Please include your twitter name)
- Tweet about the contest from your account and include the hash tag #wifi-shirt, perhaps something like:
That’s it! I’ll tweet the winner Tuesday afternoon, and after I get their mailing info I’ll send it right out. Sorry, but 3-day shipping is not available.
We have a winner!
Congratulations to Barbara Nixon, she is the lucky winner of the think geek wifi detector shirt. Please send well wishes to her via Twitter at @BarbaraNixon, and you may also want to give her site a read as it’s packed with great public relations info.
If you are curious how the winner was chosen, it was simple really. I asked twitter to pick a number between 1 and 27 (the number of entries). I then took the average of those numbers and that was Barbara’s comment. A few people thought it would be fun to keep sending numbers after said I had enough – you know who you are. They were rewarded with a special treat.
Thank you to all who played along – perhaps we’ll do this again.
