Leave The Grocery Shopping to the Women
October 2, 2007 8:14 PM   Subscribe

Decided to go grocery shopping after my wife saw some minute maid juice boxes in a circular on special at target stores .. She did a search for printable coupons online ,and to my surprise she found some minute maid coupons for target stores . She printed ten coupons and got ten boxes of minute maid practically free ... (lol) . Why can't us men think of these things ? Lol

It's dawn. The ancient Greek warriors strap on
their armored shielding. Of course to them,
there, in the itch and the juice
of their lives, they aren't "ancient"--aren't even "Greek,"
but loyal members of a city-state. The members of a different one
await them, on the far side of a pearly, swirling fog
they have in common. Now our warriors are marching
grimly into that opacity: it takes the man ahead,
and then the man behind, as surely as an enemy ambush would.
Dissolved--like aspirin mixed in milk.
And so--although surprise would be a clever tactic--
now they're singing; someone else might say they're echolocating,
relative to the other men of the corps. But I would say
that what they're doing is simply reminding themselves
they're them, here, now--they aren't fog, not yet,
one has a stone in his sandal; one, the taste
of a wife still in his beard. They're doing what
everyone does, who isn't fog, not yet. I suppose
this writing is my singing.

First off it reads like an ad. Marcellot may not work for Target or Minute Maid, but after this, they should hire him.

Secondly it's so sexist it offends me and I'm a guy. Although that alone isn't grounds to have your post removed, it is grounds to be flagged.

Third, it's a personal blog kinda post thingy. This ain't your personal blog. If you want one of those do what I did. Get your own domain which nobody reads, then come back here and reply to other people telling them this ain't their blog.

Fourth, DO NOT WANT!!!1!

Fifth, whatever other people come up with that I haven't. That's just what bothers me about it, and I used to believe everything belongs here.

You should definitely familiarize yourself with the FAQ, but if you don't feel like wading through all the rules, you'd probably find this new user's guide very helpful.

EdVerb: " think a lot of the cynical veterans forget what it was like when they were new here too"

On the contrary! I remember full well the first time I stepped in it here in MeFi, and the multiple times after that I messed up too. I was able to take it then, a little worse for wear, but I'm not gonna let you ruin the fun of dishing it out a little now and then.

No offense EdVerb. I know you mean well, but part of what makes MeFi work is the Chicken Pecking Order system. You gotta get pecked down by the murder of crows if you step outta line. Otherwise we'd get posts about every coupon ever invented by corporate greed ever in the history of anything.

Ok, cretinous self-link aside, what is the story with all the weirdo spammers who are sophisticated enough to figure out a way to try to make adsense dollars, but are semi-literate and totally unfamiliar with punctuation? Is there some SEO Fagin out there teaching urchins to make 150 bucks a month with recycled Web TV consoles? Irish travelers just figured out the internet? Herbal Life starting a new program, self-link now, ask me how? Roofing scams in decline because the real estate bubble popped? Someone get to the bottom of this, it would make a great post.

Just to clarify (since I helped muddy it), marcellot did not link directly to the printable-coupons site in his/her profile. What *was* linked was this site, which is nothing but harvested job ads and sidebar links to a bunch of sites that are very similar to the self-link: printable coupons. Which - funny - doesn't appear right now on Anna's Blogger profile, but that's her name right there at the bottom left:

I'll bite because in the off-chance that this guy isn't a troll he might as well know why he's out five dollars.

Marcellot:

1. You shouldn't link things if there's a conflict of interest. If people going to the site will make you money, do not link to it. Even if it won't, we frown on commercial sites (see the "Pepsi Blue" wiki entry for explanation).

2. This is a literate community. Learn proper spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation. There may be some tolerance if English is not your first language, but if that's the case you should meet us more than halfway by spending extra time proofreading everything. Paste your post into a word processor and do a spelling/grammar check, at least.

3. You're not going to win any friends by making sexist/racist/___ist jokes here. If in doubt, leave it out.

4. Even the good MetaFilter posts usually get a handful of people commenting on how much they suck. Yours was not a good post, and so you're only embarrassing yourself by making it a personal challenge.

5. Do not, do not, do NOT use "lol" to refer to your own statements. This isn't a MetaFilter rule, it's true everywhere. If you're making a funny statement, it'll only become less funny by you saying "lol" afterwards. It's like explaining a joke; it ruins the humor. Moreover, MetaFilter is mostly an "lol"-free zone. Exceptions are sometimes made for people using it ironically, but if you don't end up banned after this you should consider yourself on "lol" probation. Consider it off limits for the foreseeable future.

I wish you the best in piecing your life back together, and may God have mercy on your soul.
