There are three great reasons why I deserve this jacket.
First, I work with a guy that is a Microsoft MVP. This guy brags about this all the time. He has MVP gear all over his desk and on his walls. He wears Microsoft MVP logo shirts all the time just to make sure we don’t forget he is an MVP. He has one of these jackets. He wears it all the time to remind us that he is better than us. If I had a jacket like his. It would really piss him off.
Second, I found out this week that my position at work is being outsourced on January 1. This means that I am going to be on the street in the middle of a Michigan winter. If you have ever been to Michigan in the winter, you would know that I need a nice warm jacket. And with my job gone, I will not be able to afford one. So it’s either the Vista Jacket or freeze. You don’t want me to freeze do you?
Third, I joined this forum just to get the jacket. That is reason enough isn’t it?
Please give me the jacket so I can wear it while I pack my things in December and really piss off an arogant Microsoft MVP. Who knows, if I wear it to job interviews in January it may even help me get another job. Won’t that make you feel good!
Cold and Jobless.
