Memo to chain store executives and management:
I do not want your discount card. Stop asking me every time I buy a book.
I do not want a subscription to entertainment weekly. I do not want your anti-spyware program; I have my own.
I do not want to upgrade to the DVD scratch protection program, nor do I want the bundled video game hint book for $20 more. Stop telling me how dire the consequenes will be if I don't sign up for the extended warranty. It's an admission that you sell shitty goods.
Stop forcing your employees act like panhandlers. It's damaging to their morale, and it pisses me off. I'm engaging in a fair transaction, is that not enough?
