Companies, get off your soapbox, shopping is not Politics!

4 Sep

Quick message to Levi’s, Marcus Lemonis, Dick’s Sporting Goods and the assorted banks et al:

Get off your soapbox!!! All I really want is to buy the goods I trust based on quality ease of access and price point. You’re consistent forays into politics to try and lure me into your agendas are highly annoying.

And so far- it’s also starting to seem like bad business. Now this isn’t a right left, 2nd Amendment or other issue.

The problem we have here is that the consumers did not ask for your opinion. You are simply throwing your hat into the ring when no one asked be part of the fight.

How about you save the add money and give the consumers lower prices so we can afford your goods and have money to put our kids in the after-school Sports without being broke after buying the equipment?

How about we just keep all the registers open at Walmart instead of having 30 of them and only opening 2 of them? How about someone bag my groceries instead of trying to get me to do the job that used to be factored into the cost of the items?

Now I’m not going to preach from the pulpit myself. What I want are for people to be able to make unbiased opinions for themselves. Don’t influence my news or my purchases.

Let me spend the dollars I actually earn how I actually want to.

It almost sounds scary that this article is being written.

It’s sad enough that my Nikes are crap quality wise, and cost almost triple what they did in the 90s. And now we’re going to add politics to the purchase?

In my world that’s adding insult to injury.

The waitress/er at Outback doesn’t tell me his/her opinion on the steak. He or she serves it and does excellent service and there’s a 25% tip. Period.
