Tool Selection

Could be someone I know, someone I don't know, fictional characters, dead people. I don't care, I'm an equal opportunity complainer when it comes to complete dickwads.

Wherever there's a Complete Tool, I'll follow closely behind with my anonymous bitching. 'Cuz that'll show 'em.

Competitor's Ads

We're in some pretty lean times right now. I'm not going to begrudge anyone the opportunity to save some money while buying necessary items for their family. Everyone's gotta do what they've gotta do to save a buck.

What they don't gotta do is grab the local grocer's ad and their BFF, and hit Wal-Mart to do some price fighting. You did though, you dumbass. You even got all dolled up for the occassion. You know, 'cuz it's really important when you hit the ole Wally World to look your best. You never know when you'll run into the fucking Queen of England. (Actually, you probably stand a good chance of running into the Fucking Queen of England.)

I had to stand in line behind you and your enabling pal for almost 15 minutes checking out your 2 carts of groceries. Everything -- no exaggeration -- that was in your cart got disputed. "No, no, no! This ad says that these hot dogs are $1.25." (I have no idea what prices she was actually quoting, I was too busy thinking death at her.)

The cashier was very polite (I know! At a Wal-Mart?! Good for her, eh?) and patiently pointed out that this particular grocery store specifies exact products and exact weights for the items that are on their ad. Most of their items are store brand only. The meat that you're trying to buy has a weight limit that's clearly printed under that picture thing you seem to want to concentrate on.

The thing that was really pissing me off about your shenanigans: the grocery store whose ad you were exclusively shopping from is RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET! Walk your ridiculous ass over there and hold up someone else's line you dumb cow!

It's a fact of life that no matter which check out lane you choose, you will have at least one person in front of you with a price check. Whenever this happens, I tell myself I'm doing my "slow therapy" for the day... slowing down and smelling the roses, make that the sweat from the slobs in front of me, who are disputing the price of every single thing!

Damn them! That's just one of the reasons why I hate Sprawl-Mart.
