....after reading my own post...umm yeah. By the way Brian, the country of Japan is probally the best country I have ever had the honor of dwelling. People, food, cars "skylines, silvia's, cedrics oh my." Gotta leave Nippon in 2 months...

I don't know if I should...I have never..oh why not. I absolutely and utterly despise incompetent leadership. Some people should seriously eat a bowl of ebola-o's for breakfast then come to work just in time to expire beneath my grinning face. Hell, let's just say incompetence in general, anybody that suffers from it should be doused with hot grits. And anyone more arrogant than me should also slap themselves involuntarily for 3 hours straight. Grouchy fastfood cashier's, and overly watchful store clerks can play in traffic. Politicians and the mainstream media and Bill O'Rielley can take a walk....in Afganistan...alone..dressed like Uncle Sam shouting "We want you" in Arabic. Disrespectful children, unfit mothers, deadbeat dads are held in enormous amounts of disdain. I will one arm napalm punch a bigot in the face if given the chance at the rare case of overt racism, black, white, asian it doesn't matter, everybody will get a taste of fried fat fist. Extremely long forum posts, responses that actually are more sound than mine, and cooler screen names suck major glute. Getting beatdown by a noob in Halo 2, Cigarette moochers, going $10.01 at the gas pump, nosey mofos, and gossipers are filthy evil cretins, who are a cancer to the planet, and should have perished with the last ice age.

Ahhhhh.




You are a very unhappy individual. And I thought I was bad.
Actually you mentioned all the stuff I didn't feel like posting.

Its impossible to find the right shoe size!

If the shoes are too big, then the back of your foot slips out and into the shoe, and it feels like your ankle is getting sanded down! If the shoes are too small, then every step you take drives the shoes one milimeter deeper into your achilles tendon, and it doesn't feel better for weeks.

I bought some that were too small... and what do I see when I look at the receipt? No exchanges, returns, or refunds on footwear! Argh!

I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE!

A guide to self service shoe shopping, as seen in my local Brantano branch:

1. If they hurt like hell, they're too small.
2. If they fall off, they're too big.

Why, oh why, oh why, oh why, oh why, <edited for reasons of space> oh why does nowhere sell half sizes any more?

12 is too small 13 is too big in some shoes,but fits in tennis shoes. Different brands sizes are different. Give me a 12.5!!
Wal-Mart doesn't carry a 36" length pants either!!

That's because they are all in my Walmart...up North. They don't sell here because apparantly most of the customers are under 5'5''.

How is it that the supposedly most successful retailer in the world, the largest non-governmental employer in the world, can't manage to stock it's stores correctly?
