There is a disturbing trend. A disturbing trend that is reaching into every area of Holly’s shopping life.
And just a piece of advice: You don’t mess with Holly’s shopping life.
Holly first noticed it at the gas station.
Is Holly complaining about the high price of gas?
This is Holly’s blog!
There are no perkiness-deflating discussions of world peace, global warming, religion or gas prices here.
Holly is disturbed by a disturbing trend at the gas station that has nothing to do with the price of gas.
In fact, Holly thinks the gas stations should pay her for enduring this disturbing trend:
Why is the gas pump yelling at Holly?
Holly gets out of the car to fill up her minivan…
…and all of a sudden she is starring in a commercial for that very gas station.
*cue VERY LOUD audio*
*cue VERY LOUD video (optional)*
Holly doesn’t like to complain, but sometimes the audio and the video just shout at each other and Holly steps out of the fray until they are done.
If Holly were listening, she might learn that the gas station only serves the highest quality gas.
If Holly were listening, she might learn that inside the station there are snacks of the highest quality.
If the gas station were listening, they might offer to babysit 3 minivan strapped-in children because Holly is desperate for snacks of any quality.
Holly actually started avoiding the screaming gas stations because quite honestly all she wants to do is fill up her car and pay at the pump. She has little time to referee the audio vs. video fight.
Then Holly had to go get some face soap at a local drugstore. She was walking down the face soap aisle when she nearly had heart failure because of this:
The face soap AISLE began screaming at Holly to try this new product that would make her even more desirable than she already is.
At least that is what Holly assumed it was saying since she ran in terror from the aisle without her face cream.
And then Holly went shopping at the grocery store:
Not only did the frozen food section start screaming at her, but it also spit coupons in her general direction.
Holly doesn’t mind the occasional coupon, but the spitting has to stop.
This is the part where Holly offers advice to companies that are screaming at her while shopping:
Stop screaming at me!
Do I have to put my hands over my ears and say, “La. La. La.” outside the house too?
Because my arms are really tired.
Tune in next Tuesday when Holly offers advice to government…
