Gift With Purchase


So Sheena is out and about on the weekend picking up a few essentials (exactly as depicted) at her neighbourhood purveyor of ladies' foundations and as she walks up to the cash register she is cheerfully advised that she has spent just enough money to be eligible for the free gift du jour.

It's free, the clerk assures your jungle hostess... as the bar-code scans the little box and places it into the bag of goodies.

As I leave the store, take a look at my unexpected windfall. It is a travel mug. Why someone without a car needs a shitty ugly travel mug with the logo from some dirty old undergitch store is beyond me.

FCS. Gimme the cash equivalent you bastard regifters.

Sooey, SheenaVision is not a political blog. Quit wasting your best stuff on me.

When it's not "all caps", it's considered a term of endearment.

Yeah. At least if it was a thong I could kill birds out the window with stale Tim Bits or something.

That's one of the nice things about being dirt poor.

I never spend enough to get silly tchotchkes. Lucky me.

I deal with a lot of comapnies who give away incentives. It's not rocket science, but nobody ever listens.
People love: cool electronic LITTLE things i.e. calculators with Matrix-like casings, pens with multiple functions that look Matrix-like...you get the picture...and tasteful T-shirts in black, with a small company logo.
People HATE..big, cheap, useless shit....water bottles, cheap plastic pens, giant post-it notes with company logo scrawled over half the writing area...and yes, mugs or glasses. Nobody needs a stupid mug or glass, sitting oddly and alone in their cupboard after carrying the stupid fucking thing around all day.

Best giveaway I ever saw at a trade show....free shiatsu massage...on the spot. A line-up a hundred people long.

save it for my stocking Sheena. I use those things daily as I commute to work, use my reusable coffee mug as I perk my coffee at home, taking a mug full with me.
There is my enviornmental rant for the day.

I get tons of useless trinkets at tradeshows, this year as well as my annual trip so San Fran for the Oracle Open World monstrosity I am going to one in Vegas,(in 2 days actually) where I imagine they will be even tackier and more useless.

And I never win the stupid draws and get rewarded with mega-spam for the next year from all those badge swipes.

But they did have free massages last year at OOW, but the lineups were to long to bother with so I passed.
