A Waist of Bling
WTF? I'm at a stop light in Liberty City the other day, and an old Haitian guy sticks some flyers in my window. Before I can wave him off, he urges, "Help me out." Among ads for "cash today" and "pray clothes" was a pitch for Encore Services (right). Seems the home remodeling company is offering free "bling belts."
I wasn't going to pass that up, so I called. Nobody seemed interested in telling me what a bling belt was, let alone talking to me. "You have to talk to Patricia," said a woman who answered the phone on two separate occasions. Whoever Patricia is, she didn't return my calls, and I'm still dreaming about that bling belt that could have been mine. --Rob Jordan
