I haven't heard it but from your description of it, it sounds insulting to 
the capabilities of blind people.  I haven't heard it down here yet.  If I 
were up there and heard it, I'd be sending them a letter.

advice from my cats: "meow when you feel like it."
The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be
understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them.

Subject: [nfbwatlk] Irritating Commercial from Sears Optical Department

Have you heard the newest commercial from Sears Optical?

Department? Starts out with “Seeing Eye Dog… honey, I’m over here… That’s
an onion not an apple… You’ve got that upside down…. That’s the Ladies’
Room!  Seeing Eye Sara at the Sears Optical Department”. The woman doing
the voice over sounds more and more irritated as the commercial progresses.
It’s not as insulting as some of the commercials in the past, but I gotta
say that I am disappointed that Sears decided to go down this road. Am I
just being over sensitive or is anyone else irritated by this commercial?
