Borders Book Stores

I have to give them a shout out! Yesterday I went to Borders to use my 40% off coupon for any book I wanted. I didn't have to buy anything else. No minimum purchase. Just straight out 40% off. The store was packed. The line was long. They had cashiers! Heaven forbid. There were at least 6 of them. They knew they had a promotion going on and they were prepared. Hot damn! Everyone in line had their coupons out. Every single person had one. That's the way to do it!

So if you purchase books, sign up for their emails!

Where are our manners?

So we go out to eat tonight and I have to listen to everyone blowing their noses while I'm trying to swallow. Now I know that 99.9% of you don't really know me, but I can deal with a lot. The only things that really make me nauseated are large messy road kills and bodily functions. Phlegm in particular.

So, I get home and send an email to my local news station. Hey, I have to get it off my chest. I suggest to them that they have a 2 minute spot each week on manners.

Don't blow your nose at the dinner table, whether you are at home or in a restaurant.
Hold the door open for the next guy.
Say thank you and you're welcome.

You know these are really the simple and easiest ones for everyone to remember, yet they seem to be the hardest.
