I would wish for retailers to stop sending their flyers to my address, cluttering up my mailbox.

Also, I would wish for certain supermarket chains I frequently shop at to quit mailing me all those "loyalty card" coupons for items I purchase infrequently or just randomly (like only once or twice).  If I routinely only purchase one or two money orders a month (for example) I don't need a "three for the price of two" coupon, especially one that expires in four weeks.

Damn these companies and their "bottom-line" mentality.  They think consumers are soulless automatons whose future behaviors are easily predictable simply by programming certain (limited) acts they've performed in the past into some mindlessly perfunctory computer program with a one-dimensional criterion.

It's just the attitudes of those (in-charge) who think they're "above the rest of us" ...the way they assume "the right to" manipulate anyone they view as being mere "plebeians".

  There are only four basic categories each and everyone and everything falls into:  reasonable; unreasonable; logical; absurd.
Every situation and every person falls into one of them at any point in time.  This is the universal rule to abide by when making ANY kind of judgment call on anyone or anything.


  1. I have to admit I find the vouchers quite helpful when it's items I buy regularly.

    I'm not sure I'm ever logical actually. :D

  2. If it's something I buy all the time anyway, yes, why not take advantage of being able to pay less than you normally do.
    But it's the way they profile people using such pragmatically perfunctory methods that irritate me. These people don't know the first thing about me and would never have the slightest interest in ever learning even the smallest detail about me, yet act like they have me "all figured out" by examining mere fragments of my purchasing habits under limited circumstances and in one business establishment.
