“savings card” madness

I just made a quick midnight run to CVS to pick up some razors, shaving cream, and a 12-pack of Coke. As I was checking out, the clerk said “Do you have your CVS card with you?” I said “No.” He said “You come here so often, you should get one to save money.” I said “I will, eventually”. He then said “Do you like not saving money? Do you like spending more than you have to? The company loves it when you spend more than you have to.” I said “Look, usually I’m in a hurry, and I’ve got enough companies tracking my spending habits already”, as I held up my keychain with its Randalls, Kroger, and Petsmart “savings cards” barcode tags, and walked out after he handed me my receipt.

Insulting my spending habits surely won’t get me to sign up for their “Savings Card” anytime soon.

    That will show him! 😛

  2. Small world. Here I am googling for why unzip gives an error on this particular file (winzip stupidity, it turns out …) and there’s a link to this site. Hi!

    Bit of trivia — Randals lets you enter a phone number (to look you up) rather than use a physical card, and 555-1212 in most area codes works. 512-555-1212 does, anyways.
