Stop the sales, toss the coupons.
I'm not a fan of either.
When I find a 'real' bargain
I don't feel like a winner...
Nope. I feel more like I've
been conned, persuaded, cajoled, and mocked...
lured in by a system to
play a game that eats up
time and lets the greedy win.
I find myself thinking that the
notions of worth and value have
long since disappeared. I'd rather pay
a full, honest price than swipe
a 'rewards'card or enter a
code. Seems unthinkable, doesn't it?
