RUSH: To the phones as I promised. Mark, Tampa, Florida. Great to have you on the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Thank you, sir. I appreciate it. I just wish my first call into the show would be a little bit loftier of a topic but I also want to say thank you.
RUSH: Well, you’re welcome, sir.
CALLER: You had a great idea a couple of weeks ago I think was the first time I heard it, and I was racking my brain to get my father a Christmas present this year, and when I heard the message on the radio about the mug set and the gift set —
RUSH: Well, that’s great. See, that’s another great example of an Open Line Friday call. Snerdley would not have put this on Monday through Thursday, it’s not an issue related call, but I’m glad that you enjoy, glad that you liked it, and that’s cool. You made my day with this here. ‘Cause, look, we come up with these things and we hope people like it. They do cost something. We hope to make back our costs in it, and believe me: It made my day when you tell me you like it.
CALLER: Well, I was also pleased to see that I also got an order of the tea because I was really curious about it. I was extremely pleased to see that it was packaged in two, quote, unquote, “six-packs,” so he was originally only gonna get two of them, two single bottles but since it came in two six-packs he gets one and I’ve been drinking the rest of it for this past week.
RUSH: Well, I can’t thank you enough. That’s tremendous. It’s kind of embarrassing, but I appreciate it. I’m still learning to accept compliments myself. Sometimes it’s very tough, embarrasses me, but appreciate it, I really do and Merry Christmas to your dad, too.
