I spoke to a woman last night who can't stand the Scott Baio show, or me for watching it. I wish her name was actually Joannie so the post title would make sense, but sadly it's not.
"I don't make a point of watching it when it's on," I told her, "But I've got the DVR programmed."
"Oh my god. You're recording that shit?" she scoffed.
"Why such anger towards Chachi?" I wondered out loud.
"He's an ego maniacal asshole. I hate guys who go around screwing these vapid women, and objectifying them. And now we reward them for it with their own TV shows?," she preached.
She had a good point, I thought to myself, but c'mon, it's Chachi. And that's exactly what I told her.
"C'mon, it's Chachi. You gotta love Chachi."
"What the hell for?" she responded.
"'Cuz he's like the junior Fonz. He's cool."
She sighed deeply, and proclaimed, "I understand you're being sarcastic, and trying to be funny...at least I hope you are, but I don't find this funny at all. He's so replusive to me, it gets me angry."
"Who, Chachi?," I said, "C'm-o-o-o-on!"
Then I heard, "I gotta go," followed by a click.
I sat there with phone still in hand, after pretty much being hung up on, thinking, wow, this chick really fuckin' hates Chachi.
Man, I wish her name was Joannie!
