My brother in law was home from Iraq, and we were throwing a small party to welcome him home.
While he was away, we had purchased a new Suburban with a pretty decent Bose sound system in it.
He had some new CD’s he wanted me to listen to and I wanted to show off my new sound system, so we went out to the Suburban.
Now it probably goes without saying, but we had had a few (too many) drinks by that time, and instead of waiting for the CD deck to flash the green light signaling it was okay to gently feed the CD into the player - my bro-in-law jams the first CD into the player like he was trying to clear an M-16.
Needless to say he rendered my new, really cool, Bose car stereo useless.
We sat there cussing at each other for a few minutes until it hit me. ONSTAR!
I pushed the OnStar button thinking this was probably the best idea I had ever had. The guy answered the call and I told him our problem and if he could just eject the CD from my stereo. A very simple and reasonable request, I thought.
He just chuckled,and said - “you want me to what?”
I repeated my request.
He laughed again and told me they can’t do that.
I got pissed.
I asked why in the hell he could unlock a car door for some stupid mother who had left her damn kid in the car - from outer fucking space, but he couldn’t eject a CD from a factory stereo system?
He asked me how much I had had to drink, and I told him that my alcohol consumption was not relevant to the fact that he was discriminating against my brother-in-law who was a war hero.
It was the next morning when I realized that I was indeed an idiot.
