If I didn’t know better, I would say you didn’t like abba

The alarmed look on your face and ear twitching says so much

But Super Trooper is my jam

"Today, when the acquisition of wealth, quickly and in large amounts, is admired above any other human endeavor, every medical emergency or catastrophic illness is seen as an opportunity for some to enrich themselves beyond their wildest dreams. It’s no wonder that our healthcare is so much more expensive than that of every other developed country in the world, where the costs are not only much lower, but people also live longer than we do. Unlike us, other countries have the peculiar notion that profit has no place in any situation in which the basic decencies that human beings owe to one another ought to be the first consideration, and for that reason regulate the cost of lifesaving drugs and operations. In other words, they are less greedy than we are and far more humane."

There’s a special level in hell for some (oh, a good 75%, actually, if I’m being honest with myself) of the customers this week.

What is this, some sort of bizarre full moon restricted only to retail establishments?

When did we lose the ability to differentiate between bathroom facilities and a shopping cart? Toilet paper and a shirt?

Can I tell people to get out of my department and keep their grubby hands off of things? Can I kick inconsiderate slobs out of my fitting room?

Can I go to their house or place of employment and pay them the same courtesy.

It was so bad tonight, even some of the customers were bewildered.
