Just a thought or two or three

My latest pet peeve is when you shop online, so many places do not tell you how much the item cost until you put it in the shopping cart and pretend you are going to check out. What is the matter with those ignorant imbeciles. Do they honestly think you’re going to buy it without knowing how much it cost. Or they keep the shipping cost a secret until you check out. Sometimes the shipping charge determines whether I am going to buy it or not.  I know the shipping charge sometimes depends on how much it weights or much many items you buy, but why can’t they put up a chart to look at like the catalogs do.
It is only a matter of time until computers will come with a slot to slide your bank card through.

Another thing that irks me is the places that tell you it’s free, and then you need to make a user name and a password and after you get that done and try to use the service it is $24.99 per month. I don’t know what was free unless the “signing up part” is free
You can’t even find out who a phone number belongs to unless you pay for it. It will tell you it’s free and sometimes they will tell you what State the number is from, but if you want more info you will need to pay up. I guess I shouldn’t be so nosy.
While I’m on the subject of that, why is there not a law forbidding collection agencies from calling you to find out information on other people, such as a relative. Not that I have any relatives that would not pay a bill, oh no, not me. All my relatives are law abiding bill paying, honest upstanding citizens. There are no black sheep in my closet. Who would ever keep a sheep in a closet even if it were white?
