THIS may drive me to murder


A local department store, Herbergers, has the single most annoying Holiday commercial known to man. About every 4 minutes, this ear-worm jingle comes on: GIVE JOY, GIVE MORE, GIVE MORE, GIVE JOY sung by a choral group whose voices just grate on my nerves and make my short hairs stand up. GOD, PLEASE make it stop!!!

And isn't that just the right message to give to folks this year? GIVE MORE GIVE MORE GIVE MORE!!!! I am so with you- I want to hurt that skater...wonder what Tanya Harding is up to...?

I couldn't agree with you more MNMOM. Here in Iowa its Younkers that is being advertised. I had my TV on most of the day and I can't tell you how ANNOYING that commercial was, not to mention the message behind it.

Thankfully, I have missed this commercial...so far. Besides, any savvy shopper knows not to go to Herberger's until AFTER xmas for the great clearance sales!

I wanted to add, I will share lots of joy, and in January I will buy new work clothes!

Funny thing about JOY is that you can't give it. It comes from within! You can give somebody all the $hit their heart desires, and they can still be sad and depressed and lonely. They say "give more" and "give joy", that's a piece of $hit!

Yonkers and Herbergers are practically the same store; they are the same company. Large store, few customers, few employees, silly sales. I wanted the senior discount, as the sign said, but the item I picked up didn't qualify for the extra discount, because it was full price. Huh?

You know that Carson's jingle I was bitching about? This is it.
