Because you can't handle the truth. We live in an odd world these days, and no day goes by without something contradictory happening. Or double standards occurring. The sheer lunacy of it all. Pointed out to you by yours truly. Enter the LoongTao!

Gift Cards -the double-edged sword

What is so great about gift cards?

Well, you don't have to do a whole lot of shopping if all you can get is a gift card. The downside? Everyone knows exactly what you spent. Everyone knows you chose not to take the time to find a gift befitting the recipient. But then again, the recipients are probably doing the same thing.

When I was young, a gift card was a money envelope with cash. It had that whole in the middle so you can the president. That was my gift card.

And another thing: I've received gift cards for stores not even in my city. I don't have a car, but why travel 20 miles just to use a $20.00 gift card! Besides, have you ever read the notice on the back? It clearly states, if you don't use it, each year the amount drops a certain denomination, usually a buck or 2; and it has an expiration date. WTF?! I paid for it. It should be good for life.

Have you heard? McDonald's just came out with a gift card. Right after Jack-In-The-Box did. And speaking of JITB, is that the lamest commercial you've ever scene? "Duh, you're the hungry guy with no Jack card." Dumb b****. what, are you ****ing blind? What a ditz.
