No pay no play, the 6 attempts rule

My site & email were down all day yesterday and today. Turns out my credit card expiration was different than said card on file, thus my hosting company suspended my account after 6 attempts. Geez, 6 attempts! Imagine how much love could be expoused amongst couples in the world if people took that approach to rejection.

“So, yeah… what if I pay for it?”


“How about 2 drinks?”


“What if I get on my knees, beg, and buy you drinks till the club closes?”


“Alright, playing hard to get, eh? What if I go find the hunkiest, most metro-sexual, yet hetero guy here, and talk about how you think he’s hot, thus increasing your chances of scoring a potential interest?”

“Uh… no.”

“I’ll give you a hundred bucks?”

“Tempting, but… no.”

“Bummer… well, I’ll just stand guard here, and ensure any bloke who attempts to even gaze at the glorious countenance that is your presence, will pass the test of appreciation, realizing that you have the eyes that can see right through me, a smell that makes me float and forget what time it is, a …”

“I’ll take a Rum & Coke… just shut up!”

I’m not saying those sayings work, merely that a loving connection with potential could be established is people didn’t fear rejection, and instead made more than one attempt… even 6. Thanks for expanding my self-reflection MediaTemple Credit Card Transaction dude!
