Chris James Posted December 26, 2013 Report Share Posted December 26, 2013 Tis the season to be jolly...bollocks. Christmas was yesterday and already the spoiled American consumers are back to business as usual. UPS and FedEx had delivery problems, about what you would expect for this time of the year. But for those with a faith in God who believe that consumerism is part of the religious holiday there was disappointment. Some of those overpriced Christmas presents didn't arrive in time. Let's not forget that there are millions without power sitting in the cold after massive ice storms ravaged the Northeast, unless of course you accept that God controls the weather and doesn't approve of your purchases. No, let's blame the delivery services because your iPad didn't arrive in time. No matter that December 25th is a date on the calendar which can be seen far in advance, some folks shop at the last minute and gamble that things will work out fine...well they didn't. Blame God for the bad weather that grounded the planes. So if the weather grounds passenger flights what do they think UPS does with their cargo planes? Think of a famous Tom Hanks film and you'll get the answer. Those packages never got delivered. UPS and FedEx are pressured to serve and don't need this ignorant whining, the delayed packages will get there eventually. Bollocks to those who whine. Try standing in a line in Russia, four hours for a pair of shoes, if they have them. Stop being so spoiled, it's what everyone hates about us.
