"Sales will be up in February!" they said.
"Everyone is getting their tax money and going shopping" they said.
Well if you listen to this show, you know that "they" is corporate, and "they" are a bunch of bean counting idiots. So join TRB this week on the Rant as we discuss the stupidity behind February sales targets, the new products that make our own "As Seen on TV" hell, and a thrashing of people with expired coupons. It's a blast making this show for all of you, and this one was no exception.
