Want to get out of that Dreadful meeting or that Blind Date that just might not be right?

Want to get out of that Dreadful meeting or that Blind Date that just might not be right? Try Cingular’s new “Escape-a-Date” service.

From Cingular’s Press release:

Here’s an example:

     Hey, this is your escape-a-date call. If you're looking for an excuse, I
     got it. Just repeat after me, and you'll be on your way!

     "Not again!  Why does that always happen to you? ... Alright, I'll be
     right there." Now tell 'em that your roommate got locked out, and you
     have to go let them in.  Good luck!

Nice...  This can be a lifesaver!  Money well spent sometimes.

Here’s a bit about Fukuoka and their “tokku”
