Alright, so to be sure we're all on the same page to begin with, when you walk into a convenience store, behind the counter you see the cigarettes, right? Right.

So this fine evening I walk to my local conveience store to buy a slushie and some chocolate bars. I get into line, and immediately notice something....different.
The cigarettes are gone.
Oh. Wait. No they aren't. They're behind this swinging case-type thing-a-ma-****ing-jig.

Now, I guess the idea of these things are so that little kids don't see the smokes behind the counter and go "ooh, I want those." But the entire idea is stupid. They'll see the clerk swing open the friggin case to get them out, and they see the bagillion lighters littered around the counter.

"So if it doesn't do anything, why make a huff, John?" You may be asking. That is a good question, complete with a good answer.

The time it took to decide to put up these ****ign things probably could've been spent, I don't know, worrying about other things? Now I don't know whether Mac's decided to put these up, or the city of windsor did, but either way, it's a waste of both of their time. Especially the city's.


Then, secondly. These thigns are a major hassle for the clerk, I waited in line for ages because she couldn't find the right smokes the guy wanted, and I'm not one to be picky, but if you are a conveience sotre, maybe you should be a little more....convenient?


So to the asshole who came up with this idea. Thanks a buttload. you wasted my time. You wasted every customer whoever walks into a conveience store's time, you made the clerk of tyhe store look like a fool, and lastly. YOU MADE NO GOD DAMN CHANGE.

You know what, it isn't. I agree. But that, along with all the other stupid things that go along with this, just makes me so angry that some people are so stupid as to come up with this ****.

Red and sugar flavour.

well, theres your problem right there. the flavor of a slushie is directly proportional to happiness derived from consuming the slushie. how can the slushie satisfy you if you are unsure of the flavor?

The macs here (in oakville) did the same thing. But I could not care whatsoverer... now when they are searching for the smokes.. gives me a better chance to shoplift

oh and yes it is stupid and useless.. but alot of things in this world are.. the decline of the electric car, pollution, texans, amount of money spent on useless things, germans.. I could go on

I also wasted yours reading it :P


But honestly, I'm watching Bill & Ted right now, so my time being wasted isn't the first thing I have to worry about, it's my IQ dropping as a result of the stupidity of this movie. It's only saving grace is George Carlin.

I'll have to agree with the TS on this one, it is a useless idea, it's not going to stop anyone from smoking, I heard a commercial about it at work this morning on the radio and they said "out of sight, out of mind" nobody goes into a store and says, wow !! look at the pretty packages, I think I want to start smoking. that's not how people start.
