OK this is seriously ridiculous though… 5,000 people "saved" $55 on this shit? I'm at a loss for words here.

Something that i just don't get that I've encountered lately. The need for people to hang onto crap.
I moved into an apartment complex after living in a detached home for a long time. The apartments are brand new and include all major appliances. The apartments are small, my unit is around 1200 square feet. When I left the 4 bedroom house I threw almost an entire 10 yard roll off dumpster full of shit away and gave away a lot of stuff. I fully understood the need for downsizing. I see people moving in and dragging mattresses, dishwashers, tv's, washing machines and all sorts of crazy shit to the dumpster areas. Like why the hell would you load that crap on a truck, haul it from wherever and just drag it to the dumpster that's supposed to be used for "household waste" not large items. The lease you signed says you agree that you won't leave crap outside of the dumpsters, the signage posted in the dumpster areas says the same thing.
Some people moved into the unit next to mine. It's smaller than mine at around 1000 square feet. They had two HUGE trucks full of crap. The balcony they have is packed with boxes and shit. Why the hell do people need so much stuff? Are you really using two dining room sets in a one bedroom apartment? It's just weird to me and I don't get it.
I work in the Public Drinker Water field. We work holidays, weekends, on call, etc. etc. I fully understood that when accepting my current position and agreed to it as a condition of my employment. I have missed out on many things and worked many holidays in miserable conditions in the middle of a torn up street full of mud. I never whine about it as I fully understood what I was getting into. Retail workers should understand the holidays suck to work and customers can be complete morons and jackasses sometimes. This should not be a surprise.
Many people are too stupid to drive, I see this day in and day out. I'm astounded that a lot of people are still alive after seeing them drive.
