Don't get me started on the paid-for commercials.
Have you been to a theatre in the last 15 years?
I can still recall the first time I saw a commercial in a theatre ahead of the previews.
I sent emails to Loews, Garnier and Levis.
The latter each called me back. I explained that I found it unacceptable that I was paying to subsidize their marketing expenses. Their solution was to offer me product which I declined, clearly they missed my point.
Loews never called so I took the initiative. They said I was the first to "complain". It was years before I went back to a theatre and since then, I've only been to 4 or 5 movies. I'm happy to wait and buy the blue ray.
It's principle. Which so many don't have. I paid Chevy to physically remove the OnStar hardware from my Z06 because even if I don't pay for it, they gather statistics on my vehicle, like where it is parked at night, where I drive, how fast I drive and where I buy gas and then sell it. *uck that. I value MY privacy. Once again I was told, I'm the first to "complain".
BS. I can't be the only person to value privacy.
