Black Friday

Okay, I made it through the Wal-Mart experience and made out pretty well. That firm has learned tremendously from its prior Black Thursday experiences.
Now its 3am and I’ve moved on to a military exchange. I have rights to the military exchange based upon my status as a military retiree. The military exchange has its drawbacks and positives. The biggest positive is no sales tax. The biggest drawback is its high ass prices. The military exchange is self-supporting and cannot compete with off-base entities like Wal-Mart. Therefore, there isn’t as much pressure to get rid of it as the commissary system. The commissary is a huge benefit to military retirees, young active duty families and the like. Older retirees would be totally screwed if the commissaries went away. So here’s a message to those people who want the commissary to go away:

No, I’m not going to say that. At least not on this blog. That’s material that gets you attention from three-letter government agencies.

Anyway, the exchange is uneven with its deals. The big thing is their warranty program which is outstanding. You can get service anywhere on the planet if something goes bad. It doesn’t cost anywhere near the price of commercial vendors, either.

The line waiting is better behaved for the most part. At Wal-Mart, there’s a lot more heathen children and people trying to run scams. The exchange on the other hand has people smoking in line, which sucks. Especially if you’re standing in line for hours next to them.

By the way, my wife’s relatives didn’t show up last night. Didn’t call or anything. She was upset. It was like they were reading this blog and saw I had noted they had two big fat person-mobiles. If you’re reading this, understand this: Don’t show up. You hurt my wife’s feelings and frankly, no one wants to hear your freeloading asses talk about how good God has been to you while you mangle your finances. Go ahead, please continue to hang out with my buffoon sister-in-law.

By the way, have I previously mentioned my sister-in-law is a complete buffoon? Her boyfriend is a total loser and emotional wreck, bordering on psychotic. He’s going to end up killing her when he gets tired of her nonsense. Too bad she’s too stupid to recognize that little factoid.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
