I Swipe My Card Where?!
When I think "sex" and "plastic," images like the one above usually come to mind. To assume otherwise is dangerous. I recall a college friend telling me that after a drunken rendezvous with a willing lady, he asked "Cash or credit . . . and if it's credit where do I swipe the card?"
Big mistake. She left no permanent scars, but I'm told she swiped him pretty hard right to the face.
It seems technology has finally caught up with my friend's late 1990s insult. I'm sure you've seen commercials for the iPhone square . . . that little thing that plugs into your phone & allows the swiping of credit cards in all sorts of non-wired places:
Here's a fun mock commercial for an alternate use of square . . . including coke and hookers.
There's no documented evidence of prostitutes or coke dealers ACTUALLY using square for business purposes. But why not? And why let facts stand in the way of a good story (just ask CNN and other media outlets who constantly botch major news events, e.g. Boston arrests, etc.). So, the next time you ask YOUR prostitute where to swipe the card, don't be surprised if she pulls out her iPhone and says "right the f**k here."
