I recently went to BB

to purchase a BluRay/DVD set, because they had the best retail price. At check out, they offered a "replacement program" for the disc for $2 in case the disc got scratched. I'm pretty sure that I laughed out loud. They have been working overtime to alienate their customer base over the years, reducing inventory of cds/dvds, over-complicating their "rewards", lack of knowledge from the employees, etc.

YOU can take control of that.

I did, and now I hardly receive any. Look closely at the mailers and contact those responsible for mailing it out. Tell them to remove your address from their system, even if it is addressed to "Resident". Credit card offers (which I used to receive daily) can also be stopped, look closely at the details of one of the offers for instructions. It's not the fault of the Post Office, they only deliver what is being sent.

I ruined a perfectly good job interview

by pointing out my opposition the "right to work" form (Texas) that I had to sign for the interview process to reach completion. It stated that I could be terminated from employment for any reason, or no reason at all. Why sign it? It has never made any sense to me. I don't agree with it, in principle, and if they can fire you willy nilly anyway, without legal repercussions, they sure don't need my begrudged permission.

I had decided by that point that I didn't want the job anyway. They said (after interviewing and an hour of paperwork) that there would be a drug screen (which I also disagree with in principle). They could have revealed that in the job listing and saved a lot of applicants some time.
