I am taking myself off the telephone today. It is that, or throw it against a wall, and it really is not the phones fault. (And I would need to buy a new one)
I decided to order a couple things today, because that time is coming soon....We arent going all out even, just a couple carefully selected items.
So. Canadian Tire? You suck BIG TIME. None of your departments at my local store even answer the phone. Voice mail? Bite me. I am not driving for half an hour there, and then ha;f an hour home, when a supposedly easy phone call should be possible.
Sears? Oh, you get the most exuberant BITE me. First off......Yanno why Sears is facing total annihilation? One reason is Offshoring. Lets start there. I was connected to the Philippines. Not these peoples fault, they are offered jobs and no one can fault them a bit for taking them.
But heres the thing? All of these jobs that were taken from Canadians, take money from Canadian pockets. It aint rocket science. So now, no one can afford to shop at Sears anyway.
Retail Canada? You do it to yourselves with every shitty backorder, job cut, and crappy service experience with poor people in other countries working at jobs that used to pay for families here, that have to listen to us rant and rave.
Happy Christmas, and you deserve every shitty bankruptcy that comes your way.
Amazon? I have been really avoiding them. But I see why people go there.

The article itself was a bit of a nonentity, but reading the comments was extremely revealing..
The CBC media online has more than its share of nickle a comment trolls, but this truly surpassed expectations for sheer defensiveness, not to mention offensiveness..equal to or greater than anything that poster could have engendered..
Below is my reply to one of the worst ones, after he stated that anyone going drinking in a pub or club in Whistler is there for sex, full stop..and then followed up with instructions on how not to dress or act if you didn’t want to be treated like a potential victim
You are a wonderful apologist for men’s bad behaviour…have you read the rationale of fundamentalist Islamists for the treatment of women? The whole argument is based on the idea that women are mindless temptresses, who ‘seduce’ men by (gasp!) showing their hair, or wearing ‘immodest’ clothing…apparently men are incapable of controlling themselves around women, They are then all a bunch of potential rapists who need to be treated like idiots, and women are at fault if men can’t control themselves…well, you can see where this is going..
Stop victim blaming. Women have the right to wear whatever they choose, and the right to expect to be treated like equals..if a man has tight jeans on, do you feel the urge to forcibly have sex with him? Ooh, especially if he is so drunk that he can barely resist? No? Then think about your ‘arguments’ that it is a woman’s fault if she is assaulted.
