WorldWide Drilling Resource

40 OCTOBER 2021 WorldWide Drilling Resource ® The “Idiots” Corner by “Billy Bob Smith” If I hear one more commercial wher e they promise you the world, I think I a m going to lose it. I thought this month I would share a few of the “real” thing s organizations say about themselves tha t vary from exaggerations, half-truths, t o outright lies. You can decide what you want to believe. Let me repeat, the following are actual words used i n a variety of advertisements from legitimate organizations bot h large and small during the past few years, right up to today. I won’t mention the names, but let you decide if you have eve r heard the message and from who. Let me ask you . . . do these organizations think we are al l idiots? Well, maybe they do since they have been lying to u s for many years. “Many a small thing has been made large by the right kin d of advertising.” ~ Mark Twain “There are three types of lies - lies, damn lies, and statistics. ” ~ Benjamin Disraeli So here goes: • We have a 99.9% success connectivity rate nationwide. • Over 85% of our first time customers buy again. • No one gives you a better night’s sleep than our produc t • Lose 18 pounds the first month - guaranteed. • Lasts longer than any other product on the market today . • Twice as fast . . . for half the price. • We have a 100% return guarantee regardless of you r reason for returning. • 95% of our customers are 100% happy with their pur - chase of our services. • Clinically and scientifically proven to regulate digestion and boost immune systems. • It’s 100% free.
