    Disclaimer: I'm almost 100% sure I'm going to offend someone, so right off the bat, I'm sorry for anything I say that may that upset you. Its not intentional, I'm just opinionated. Second thing, I'm not racist. I make lots of racist comments because more often than not the people that aggregate me the most are of another nationality. It is not my fault that foreigners are annoying. If you don't want people to talk about you, stop being so annoying and/or go back to your own country, have you ever thought of that? No. Because you continue to visit our country and annoy caucasian americans, like myself, daily. 

    Anyways, on to my point. I don't like to blame my 6 years working in retail for my hatred of the holiday season, but anyone who has worked in retail understands my pain. I've literally been borderline assaulted at work because a woman was shipped the wrong color suitcase. Are you kidding me? You are going to lift a 5 piece luggage set over the counter and intentionally throw it at an employee because it's the wrong color?  Merry Christmas! Here's a bruise the size of a walnut.
    As much fun as assault is, it's nothing compared to coupons, don't even get me started about coupons! Don't get me wrong I LOVE saving money, I use coupons all the time, but, read the fine print. You are not going to get it for free because you have a coupon. I blame 'Extreme Couponing' for this annoying coupon epidemic, worst show ever, right after Jerseylicious. Not only does this show not notify the viewers of all of the rules these extreme couponers have to follow when going on these marathon shopping trips, but the idiots watching have to notice the extreme amounts of planning and the obnoxious amounts of food they have to purchase in order to receive these crazy discounts. Anyways, back to my point, if your coupon is for $10 off and you have an item for $9.99, how do you suppose we give you $10 off, you didn't spend $10.. And no, I can't take the coupon after tax, I'm pretty sure in this economy the federal and state governments are not willing to give you a discount on your sales tax because you can't read a coupon, if you would like to take it up with them, feel free. I have a crazy hunch you'll be laughed at and/or hung up on. Also, I don't care if you drove 800 miles to use this coupon, it clearly states that it is not valid until tomorrow. So either you're illiterate, or you're a moron, either way I'm not taking your coupon. Figure out how to read a calendar and get back to me, I'll be here till 1 o'clock in the morning so take your time. So once again, as the holiday season FINALLY is drawing to an end and I wait in anticipation for my third 5pm-1am shift to commence, I hope you enjoyed my rant. Feel free to comment and tell me all of your great retail stories, I'm sure I will be able to sympathize smile

      Capitalism: When you don't get exactly what you want, you are allowed to get pissed because YOU spent YOUR money to purchase something.

      Socialism: When you're lucky to get anything at all.
