Gordian Knot

That guy Gordo keeps emailing me asking if there’s any jobs at my bank.

I’m the kind of guy who responds to every email (excluding junk) but these ones I just deleted. Then, last night he calls me on my cell. (Thanks, Gunther!)

I was dreading taking the call, but I figured he’d just keep bothering me, so I answered. I said, “Yeah, hey, I checked around and we’re not hiring.”

But he was like, “Oh, don’t worry about that. That’s not why I’m calling.”

Turns out, he wants to talk to me about a business idea he has. I really, really didn’t want to hear it but guess what? He was calling from Gunther’s place, so before I knew it, he and Gunther were in my place pitching their idea.

The idea is stupid as you might have guessed but I still don’t want to publicly describe it in case some other idiot wants to invest. Suffice to say, it has to tracking devices, Twitter, and a certain item of clothing.

Now that I think about it, I’m fairly certain no one will ever want to pursue this, so let’s just be clear what we’re dealing with: GPS-enabled sneakers that automatically link to your Twitter account. The idea is that you can track celebrities who want to be tracked via Twitter. Not sure why anyone would want to wear these, but if any readers are interested I can pass on your info. They’re looking for $500,000 “seed” money.

This is not an April Fools joke.

    Also, 500K??

    I’ll embedd GPS in your shoes for $100… And write a shitty app that’ll bluetooth to your mobile phone and update your twitter account for a mere $1000.

    Half a mil? Srsly guize!
    Maybe if your spending $498 900 on marketing…
