When you'd thought she'd fallen (or been pushed) off of the Segway scooter for good, she's back at CVS annoying customers all around the store and getting this year's flu shot from "Eric" again.

Great ...

Please tell me by 'back' you mean they're just re-airing the original commercial, not that they made a new one.

Oh, please, at the very least, what insanity said.  No new Bonnie commercial, please!

Same old Bonnie.  Still want to run a stick between the spokes of that segway and watch her go ass over tea kettle into a Dr. Scholl's dosplay.

OuchYou're mean, Maddy.
My beloved Mother is almost 90 and wants to roll around CVS (and a lot of other places) on a Segway really badly.
Even though I've yet to see a Segway WITH spokes, I think you'd find a way to still shove a 2x4 through the wheels and make some. To think...if you'd hurt Bonnie, you might hurt my Mother.Cry
And DO NOT toss Bonnie into the 'Dr. Scholls' display! MissyDWolf got her bad ol'self some of those 440's - and swears by them, but they emptied my wallet, so I don't have any yet and cannot back her on that one - but I need that display to stay where it is until I can get all those phony doctors telling me why I gotta get 'jellin', doncha know...
~~~
Funny this should come up - I was *just* looking at Segway Tours around the beachfront where the Silverbacks reside; was going to sign up Mom and boost her life insurance policy, for Dad...he says he could use the money.

You're retired, Bonnie.  Unless you expect to die in two weeks, you have plenty of time for the flu.  Love your helmet, by the way, you dork.

It's not a new commercial, it's just them retrotting the old annoying one out. The time away from TV did not make the heart grow fonder.

Pa, I bet your mother is a sweet and courteous Segway driver. Bonnie on the other hand is like a borrowed car full of asshats out joyriding. Stick in spoke for Bonnie. Parade Route for Mom!
OK, let's have her go careening into the DIET Whitman Samplers. They're useless anyway!

"Busy Bonnie" has no time for the flu? Like, what else are you gonna do? Watch Jeopardy on TV?
Play with "Mr" Bonnie? That may explain the hand wipes and don't forget to ask Ed for that bottle of Extense.

Not to mention, not ONE CVS pharmacy I've ever seen has looked like that garish yellow building.

They just built a new one near me.  I should actually look at it one of these days.  From the corner that I see, it looks like your typical cement box store.

Confused...my Mom is also a renegade, ala 'Steve McQueen/Jimmy Dean'.
She will not wear a helmut; she says she never needed them when she was a kid riding a bike, she sure doesn't one now. At almost 90, she is totally 'politically incorrect'  - she says, "Helmuts are for Homos!"..
And she hates all Whitman candies, too.

Does it make me a bad person that I wish serious physical harm upon anyone I see driving a segway?

No, you want to do an American Grafitti by attaching a chain to the segway's axle and let her do all the work....  LOL

It's HER CVS!!!!  Screw you if you planned on casually shopping without some annoying old bat obnoxiously riding her Segway around like she owns the place.  It's HER CVS and you are lucky that Bonnie even allows you to shop there.

At her age, shouldn't she be wearing a few of those helmets on her hips?

There is ONE consolation that nobody mentioned...I wonder just how many takes they had to do to get that commercial?  No doubt "Bonnie" tripped and fell/crashed into stuff during the making of the commercial.

I have a question. I see Segways frequently in TV shows and commercials. I have never seen one in the real world. I don't live in the middle of the Mojave Desert. I do live very near a Metro area of over 200,000 and have visited many larger cities since the Segway was introduced. Has anyone actually seen a Segway?

Cincinnati offers Segway tours around parts of the city.  There have been several Groupons for it.  I would imagine most larger cities have them.

Exactly the same thing in Virginia Beach - Groupons tours where rental segways are provided as part of the package. 
I bet it would be GREAT to romp around the historic parts of Cincy, on a segway.
I've always wondered how a segway performs going up and down hills.

Didn't the inventor of the Segway die in a Segway accident? He rolled off a cliff or something.
