Everyone likes to be the best at something. And businesses love to tell us just how great they are at what they do. With claims like “World Famous ….” or “America’s Best …. “, you’ve seen the ads.
There is a billboard near here that puts a very strange twist on that concept. It is for a local hospital that claims to be “East Pasco County’s Best Heart Hospital.” Is it the best in the country? No. The best in the state? No. The best in the Tampa Bay area? No. The best in Pasco county? No. It’s just the best in the east half of the county. And to top it off, it’s not even the whole hosptal that is best in east Pasco County. It’s just the cardiac unit.
If I have a heart attack, I want to head to the western half of the county, because they have better hospitals!!
