A glitch in the Matrix is audibly happening inside the Save Mart at Bullard & West, if you want to go and check it out.
Formally it was Home to just ranking #2 on the Most Annoying Parking Lots in Fresno. But now, I am starting to believe, is taking part in a bizarre experiment to see how much the human brain can withstand.
What the hell am I talking about?
For months (hell, maybe all year), the in-store music that plays over the PA system has been messing up. It cuts out and skips regularly. Like, a lot.
You can listen for yourself (just audio with a static picture):
Am I the crazy one? You hear how the song skips out, right? You hear it too…RIGHT!?
It’s like a wire is loose or something, bad connection somewhere.
I’m shocked at how long it has been going on because I can’t believe the employees are able to live with it. It’s super annoying and to hear it all day every day should drive you to fix it immediately or just keep it off.
But the staff has learned to ignore it, I guess.
I for one don’t go in there much unless it happens to be super convenient for me. I understand I am weird on many levels and I hope you can tell I am having some fun here, but little things can be a big deal.
If you don’t care about how annoying something like a constant drip of audio glitching could be to customer’s and especially to employees of the store, maybe I don’t care about shopping there either.
But also: Glitch in the Matrix!
My neighborhood Save Mart might very well be the portal where the computer programing running this simulation called “Life” is updated.
The store has new floors but couldn’t be bothered to fix the PA system? Interesting.
WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU, FRESNO!?!? WE ARE ALL IN IT!
Take the blue pill (or is it red pill?) and check it out for yourself and tell me I am crazy. Crazy right.
This is the Save Mart that Kopi and Mayor Swear Bear shop, for
UPDATE!: Glitch fixed. Due to a tip from a Fresnan reader and this post, the system now appears to be working normally! I can confirm as I went in there last night and the music did not skip once. Well done, Save Mart #54 – Bart and Vic P would be proud.
