Culture on the Cheap
Nice Moves Part II: The Plot Thickens!
As I have mentioned previously, last weekend I caught up with my buddy Rachael over drinks. One of the topics of our conversation was “Nice Moves Movers which I featured on my site last week. I found it compelling. God only knows the commenters at Daily Intel did. And, well, Rachael did as well. She had spotted their flier at the San Loco on North 5 Street and found it, well, a bit odd. Thinking it was a joke she grabbed it for me.
Last night this item finally found its way into my possession. Truth be told, I was not expecting any surprises (I mean, how can you top “pricing flexible depending on circumstance.”) I was wrong.
This is the flier I posted.
And this is the one she found. As you can see there has been a change in the rotation. Why? In any case, here’s what Rachael had to say:
I think the photo at the bottom right was taken in 1976. So when you call some creepy old guy will show up at your apartment.
“Perhaps” I replied:
But in any case I do not think I would want this guy moving my precious Steinway. Provided, of course, I had one. He looks like he would lift up the lid and take a nap in it. Then the other guys would wonder why it is so heavy and lo, he’d pop out. It would be like something straight out of The Three Stooges.
After a shred of affirmation I continued:
What happened to the other two guys? Were they fired?
And so the mystery of Nice Moves Movers continues. This establishment have a Yelp page and yet not a single review has been posted. Once again, if anyone hires these guys I a expect a full review— including exactly who shows up on moving day!
