It's official: I'll never buy anything at Circle K ever again.
I've had it. They're installing new gas pumps that are equipped with video monitors so you can--nay, have to
--keep up with the latest trends
in fashion, music, fake news, and who Katy Perry is boinking this week.
And, lest I forget, advertising
I just want to pump my gas and GTFO. It's bad enough the stupid things ask me a hundred questions first:
Debit/Credit? Question hasn't mattered in 20 years. Fry's VIP Card? No. Carwash? No. How about a nice, refreshing Polar Pop? Go f# yourself. I'm
late for work.
When is enough enough? At what point will people get tired of pop bulls# being literally force-fed to them 24/7?
I dunno, maybe some people (or lots of them), enjoy being reminded to breathe
in the middle of their commute, but it makes me hyperventilate.
Seriously. I don't need common sense health "tips" ("Hey, you might wanna breathe
today, buddy!") while pumping gas!
But then again, I'm offended by most billboards; at the contempt the marketing industry has for human intelligence.
Sigh. At least you can turn the TV off. They leave me but little choice than to make a conscious effort to never drive onto their lot again. I refuse
to expose myself (heh) to yet another layer of brainwashing.
Am I being too harsh? A bit snowfake-ish?
I don't care. F# Circle K.
And I've been trying to swear less.
