I've been using Old Spice deodorant for YEARS. My fav scent is the original 'Classic' scent. I bought a two pack a few months ago and while it still smells great it doesn't keep me from getting stinky. WTF, it always worked before? I e-mailed Old Spice and asked them what's up with the new formula? They told me that nothing is up and that it's the same as it's always been. I told them no way and they offered to send me a coupon for a free two pack of another scent. They did and I got the same scent but in high endurance. I'm no longer stinky.

I think that they are tweaking more than that.  They can take their coupons and stick em where the sun don't shine.

That looks like a first class clusterf##k.

Paris, just east of the tower. A horrible intersection with a set of lights outside the traffic circle, a set inside and yield markings throughout. Protests against austerity measures snarled traffic and we sat in that spot for almost an hour.

Prolly not good to have 'blast' in the name of any laxative.    :hitfan:

Why in the  :censored: do I have to enter the year, make and model of a vehicle when I'm looking for a universal fit item for a vehicle. I need a piece of 7/16 hose for a 1951 Hyster forklift, ok, AutoZone? Wtf

In the old days, parts men were parts experts. Now they are zombies that push buttons.  7/16 hose is beyond their scope of knowledge.

These are the same zombies here today blocking folks from going to work:

Speaking of having to enter useless info while filling out forms online.

Why does one have to enter the city and state along with the zip code? Can't they get the other info just from the zip?  ???

Oh, oh, wait! I call the part store and the guy says, "can you use 3/8 or 1/2?"  If I wanted 3/8 or 1/2, that's what I would have asked for! If I needed a 7/16 bolt would they ask if I wanted a 3/8 or 1/2 bolt?  :doh: :battle:

Oh boy. I semi-manage a group of helpdesk employees who are literally paid more than I am to sit and argue with me over the best way to diagnose and troubleshoot corporate end-user issues.

There's a reason I'm going bald, and what hair left is already turning grey...
