Club card is pure genius

X% will forget/refuse to use the card and will over pay

Y% will think they've saved a bunch of money using their card and will buy additional items with their "savings"

Most people will realize whats going on and shop normally, but the real ploy is the free market research of exact individuals exact purchases for years on end. That info has to be priceless

Pretty much impossible to shop at a store that offers a free club card and not get hustled in one way or another no matter your shopping strategy. Whoever came up with this one simple trick deserves to be a billionaire

When someone in a movie or TV show is working at a computer and the director feels the need to include a shot that shows 1-2 seconds of them hammering away at random keys on the keyboard.

Likewise, in TV/movies when anyone gets their shirt ripped open. There go the buttons, guess they're not going to be wearing that shirt again. Such a waste of perfectly good apparel.

Looks like he hit a nerve with you, lapka. Did you work as a weather girl a little on the side to pay for college?

I did gogo dancing on student parties as a part of organizing team. We didn't get any money for the job. It was free entry and the prices for drinks did pretty exact cover the drink costs.

Most cool thing we managed to get going, was to get a bunch of very famous DJs to come to our small student bar and work there for free. It was really cool. We divided the bar we piled-up the foam couches to separate two dance floors. Worked surprisingly well also for the acoustic.

Boy, had we energy! It is really funny how good that all worked, although we were just a bunch of youngsters with zero experience or any lead.


re: he hit a nerve with you.

Naaahhhhh. I am just in too bad mood to pass up such post without responding.

edit. I so hope that I didn't make any too/to mistakes here.

I'm sure this has been said (possibly even by me), but it deserves to be said again: that tweets won't show up on the 2+2 app.

this should also piss you off, as well as people that still write checks...especially if they don't start filling it out until after every item is rung up. at least fill in the name of the store your at for ****'s sake.

I'd find pics of you interesting. I always imagine that you are quite attractive but that's probably because I like your personality and think you have a good soul I'd probably still consider you attractive on this basis regardless of what you actually looked like lol.

Nah man, if you don't get the point of the thread and double down on speaking for others, I'm leaving.

Re: Things that shouldn't piss you off, but do.

Pisses me off every time I see a couple, or a group of people, in a movie or TV show eating Chinese food right out of the take out box.
Who does this?!
All normal people in a group setting eat Chinese take out family style. You're really only going to eat 1 item? GTFO

And adding to the pissedoffness is the fact that even if you do decide to eat it right out the box, those goddamn flaps on the top get in the way of every bite!

What word do you prefer? What is so bad about "handicap?" I never realized it was offensive.
