Hi Gadgeteers, this is Trish from New York City.

As much as I hate the “D” word, I have been presented with the ultimate douchebaggy phone message and could not resist passing it on to you. I got this link from a male friend and it truly gets more unbelievable as it unfolds, so listen to the end. You will be torn between guffawing and gasping in sheer amazement at this guy’s spiel.

True, it doesn’t really have anything to do with technology, except that it has been shared on the web for all the world to recoil from.
Enjoy!

I adore your show - and have learned the hard way not to drink iced mocha while it’s on (iced mocha out the nose = gaaah!)
