Whither Shock Treatments?

Dear Rev. Jack

Is it wrong to be angry at costume manufacturers? What about stores that make me pick up my bags from a carousel and put them in my cart, and/or self-checkout machines? I hate them so much!

I am also filled with rage when I see someone wearing an "Ask Me About My Grand-Dog" t-shirt. Dressing up dogs and/or taking them to sit on Santas lap also enrage me.

Are my reactions normal, or should I consider shock treatments?

I don't think any of that sounds unreasonable to me.

1) Angry at costume manufacturers? No. They are just satisfying the demand for lame costumes of the teeming masses. Be angry at the teeming masses for a lack of creativity.

2) Stores with bag carousels? No. Be angry that the town you live in chased all of the mom & pop stores (like Happy Foods )away to make room for the mega-marts of the world.

3)Self check-out machines? No. Be angry at the people who take 35 minutes to check out three items using them. If you can use it, go to a check-out person. Period.

4) Grand-dog shirts? No. These people have kids who have decided not to have kids of their own and devoted all of the maternal/paternal energy to their pets. Feel pity for these people. They want grandkids but will never have them. It's an act of desperation and a cry for help.

5) Dog costumes/Santa picture? YES! Deriving pleasure from stripping an animal of its dignity? Don't get it. Although, all my daughter wants to do is dress up my puupy in silly things...sigh.

Agreed on all counts, Reverend. Although I don't know what a bag-carousel is, I am still waiting for the return of the mom&pops.

Also, i LOVE the self-check out machines. I can whip through and be out of the store in less than 5 minutes, rather than stand behind morons being checked-out by morons for 20.

In 10 years when your daughter wants to dress *herself* in silly things, you'll yearn for these days again.

I kinda like the checkout machines, to. If the store is empty-ish and I only have a few things, it's actually pretty quick workings.

Queenie, you're right. I can't wait for what horrifying fad is awaiting my daughter. I'm sure it's a fight waiting to happen and will shave years off of my life.
