- To all commercial businesses... stop playing holiday music before Thanksgiving (as early as Halloween). Surprisingly, I'm already sick of hearing it. I almost walked out of my grocery store last night because of it. If your goal is to remind me of the holidays to I spend more... you have passed my threshold of repetitive torture. (At least find something different than everyone else).
- To all retails stores with Black Friday doorbuster deals... people shouldn't die trying to get into the store to get a deal. Not only is this sickening, but it can be prevented. Use the Best Buy ticket model.
- Lastly, this whole situation with flight charges is starting to get out of hand. Fuel costs rise, so we get charged more for a seat. Then more for extra luggage. Now overweight people are being discriminated against. Please stop. Can't we just charge everyone by total weight? Put me and my luggage on a scale and charge accordingly. We are paying to move freight. Though I am human, I am a fuel cost just like my luggage and therefore I am freight. I could have 200 lbs of make-up and shampoo in my luggage which is no different than weighing 300 lbs in a seat. Kill the complaints and discrimination issues by charging us all the same way... by weight. (Note: this happened to me on a small plane flight in Costa Rica many years ago, so it is not a new idea.)
Cue groans... now.
