Our societies are getting increasingly frustrating to navigate and in some people the frustration boils over into shooting other people.
Major corporations need to stop trying to pinch every penny and try to actually provide helpful support to their customers. All of us need to try to be more helpful toward others.

However, the one I think that may be as bad or worse is all the retailers that you go into now days, when you get to the checkout, they want a whole bunch of personal information and you have to stand there and listed to a credit card spiel before they will even take your money. They want you to sign up for an account with them and they are very insistent. The last time this happened to me, the clerk wanted me to pay with their credit card and give me a discount, yada, yada, yada. I asked if they accepted cash US dollar, and I finally had to tell him I just wanted to pay and get going. He went into another spiel for something else, and that any personal information would not be sold or traded. Finally, a supervisor happen to walk by and overheard our "conversation" and asked me if there was a problem. I told him I just wanted to pay for my purchase and get going, to which HE started in that all the preceding was the company policy and yada, yada, yada. I told him my policy was going to be to buy all the items I had laying on their counter somewhere else, and I left.
