Smells Like Home

I hate buying stuff online. This goes for anything. It’s hardly ever what I imagine it to be when I order, and not only am I out money for the crap item and shipping, I’m totally disappointed in my purchase.

Even more, I hate buying things from companies that seem to spring up out of nowhere and require my friends to advertise for them and hound unsuspecting social-network goers to buy stuff from these companies, so that my friends can see a penny or two. I’d rather just give you the five bucks instead of buying that shitty sticker set, know what I mean?

I don’t want to go to your facebook party. I don’t want to buy their crap from you so that you may eventually have the privilege of trying to get me to sell for them, too. I’ve seen this before. Before the days of the common internet, in fact. I have a Pampered Chef strainer that’s collecting dust in a corner because it broke within moments of my using it. I just don’t feel like buying crap from a company using my friends as pawns to stuff money in its own pockets.
