wednesday beef of the meatless variety

1. Meijer U-Scan Cashier, I realize that it's late and you are almost at a shift change. I myself have worked a 14-hour day and am clearly still working, as I can think of about ten other places I'd rather be than standing in this U-scan line. I know I have a bazillion coupons, eleven of which need to be manually entered in for whatever reason. But really, it's not my fault that I'm getting 21 cents overage on each package of the frozen vegetables. If it's that big of a "problem" for you, oh rogue vigilante cashier, why don't you manually enter in the correct amount instead of getting sassy with the customer? I didn't report you to customer service, by the way, I was just buying stamps. Happy Holidays. Be nicer next time.

2. Underwear Model, if you would like to be taken seriously while quoting Gandhi on your social networking page, it may help if your profile shot isn't a bikini one. And also if you spell Gandhi correctly.

3. Bag Borrow or Steal, you are a bunch of dirty thieves. Dirty. Thieves. That is all.

4. Anonymous Blog Commenters, make sure you read a post c.a.r.e.f.u.l.l.y before hitting the 'send' button on your snarky response. You might have completely misread my post, and you just might make yourself look like a total jerk who is slightly illiterate if you write what you did. You also may want to "re-evalutate" your "excessive use" of "quotation marks".

5. Marijuana-Smoking Teenagers Outside the Mall, the 40-something professional woman in the kick-ass Charles David boots was right: we really can smell your blunt.

6. Hershey's Bliss Milk Chocolate, I love you but you are terrible for my complexion. I am getting a pimple. A PIMPLE, for Pete's sake. I feel like a 7th grader. I just wish I could quit you...

Amen Sister! Down with the grumpy Meijer workers. If they see that I have a pile of coupons why not just stay at my side until I am through? This will save me from having to hunt you down and save you from getting an attitude with me b/c I am expecting you to do your job!

Ok, now that I have that off my chest, I hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas!

Excellent beefs! And ooh, have you had a bad experience with Bag, Borrow, or Steal? Tell! I looked at it a long time ago, but it didn't seem like that great a deal to me. To get the really high-end bags, you have to pay so much per month that it just seemed better to save up for a while. I haven't checked it out in a long time though.

Becky, I'll try to sum it up. BBoS had a promo several months ago where they would give you a $50 credit for signing up. I had heard they had pretty good sales on their outlet bags so I signed up with the intention to cancel before my first paying month. I tried purchasing a purse (a great deal on a BCBG clutch) and it deducted the amount from my credit. Sweet, right? I didn't even have to pay the $25 I was planning to pay for it. Except they emailed me three days later, after I received a shipment confirmation, to let me know that they had cancelled my order because you are only allowed to use credit to pay dues, not to purchase purses. Huh?! It was automatically deducted from my account, geniuses. They didn't even give me the option to buy the purse, and by this time it wasn't available anymore. Fine, whatever. I cancelled my membership right then, but just got my credit card statement... and they charged me ten bucks for a month's dues!! I've been going 'round and 'round with them for a few days and am ready to throw a shoe at someone. Definitely not worth it for the crappy customer service alone, and I'm really not a designer purse kind of gal anyway.

Lindsey... Merry Christmas to you too!

It's that time of year when the stress is high and it makes us all a little grumpier. It is important to give people a little extra grace without expecting much in return. :) Merry Christmas!
