Hello Spring And Random Thoughts!

Good Morning M:R Nation –

In an attempt to empty my head of all the thoughts I have had over the weekend, I have decided to post in a little different format (Some words have been altered as to not offend). I read about doing this a couple of months back and I thought I would use as my audience. Please forgive the randomness and let me know what you think!

Mission Repair

  • Did you know that last week marked the first day of Spring? Yes, March 20th, 2014 was the Spring Equinox, however, you wouldn’t be able to tell with our current weather situation here in the Kansas City area. It’s cold, cloudy and we are having a few patches of snow throughout the day. Yes, it is as depressing as it sounds. So depressing in fact, I really didn’t want to leave the warmth of my bed this morning, but alas, I’m a grown up now and I have responsibilities….
  • Speaking of responsibilities and working and jobs, did you know that Mission Repair is hiring? Yes, we are ALWAYS looking for great people to add to our staff, but this opening is specifically for our Mission Repair Express location as a customer service/ Sales associate! If you have any interest, please email jobs@missionrepair.com
  • If you are a fan of basketball in the state of Kansas, your heart must have been crushed this weekend…
  • We often talk about the iPad 2, but what about the iPad 3 and iPad 4? How in the world can you even tell the difference? Click here to find out!
  • Just when I thought the world was void of any really crappy, yet catchy song that I couldn’t stop listing to, #SELFIE has been unleashed on my ear drums! I love it and hate it with all of my being.
  • Man, I really wish that they would make “Spring Break Week” a National Holiday. Everyone gets a mandatory paid week off to bake in the sun. I wonder how this would affect the economy? Everyone is off work and ready to spend some money, but no one is open to take your cash!
  • When will Apple finally come out with a Smart Watch? I am ready to read my text messages on my wrist!
  • Should I upgrade to an iPhone 5S or should I wait for the next generation of iPhone? Or further more, should I switch to a different Smartphone altogether?
  • Taco Bell breakfast this week, anyone?

Whew, that was great to get out of my head! I can honestly say that my mind is a little more clear and I’m ready to start my week out right.

Cheers, Troy

Turn In Your Brackets!

Hello M:R Nation –

The NCAA Tournament starts today and there is no better way to kick off spring time! Even if you are not a basketball fan, you have to admit, it’s fun to fill out a bracket and try to win a few bucks. This year, even Warren Buffet has gotten in on the fun and has decided to put up $1,000,000,000. Yes, that is 9 zeros! I wonder what his bracket looks like? Do you think he has Nebraska or Creighton going farther?

Given that we reside in a state where the creator of basketball is buried, you can say that we are naturally a little basketball crazy. You should see it, the Mission Repair staff goes hog wild this time of the year. We have a mixture of Kansas, Wichita State and Kansas State fans among us and they are not afraid to throw their team under the bus when it comes to their brackets!

You see, we don’t constantly obsess over Tablet and Smartphone repairs around here. This is proof that we are somewhat human and like to have fun just as much as you! Speaking of you? What do you do for March Madness? Have any crazy superstitions to help your team win? Does your office have a bracket challenge like ours? If you care to share, email me at Troy@missionrepair.com, I just might have some surprise savings for your next repair!

Cheers, Troy
