    Stupid thread, but damn am I pissed off.
    Somehow last night I lost my car key, no idea where. I spent 2 hours looking for the fucker, no sign of it. I retraced all my steps, not there.

    I had a bunch of change in my pocket, explain how I lose my key but nothing else in my pocket? Oh, and to make it better, a key for my car is laser cut and it's like $200 for a new one.

    So I call up Audi, and guess what, SERVICE IS CLOSED! Who the FUCK has a closed service center on a Saturday? That's everybodys day to get shit done. Now I have no way to get to work or anything because my car is sitting at my friends house, locked.

    edit: Well nevermind, I guess that only the Audi dealership HERE by my parents house(Wisconsin) is closed. The few I know of in Chicago are open. So I guess it's just the small town fucks around here that don't work.

    You don't have a spare key? Every car I've ever had came with at least two.

    No, when I bought it I just got the one. I've had the car about a year and a half now and haven't had an issue with losing my key until now so I didn't really worry about it.

    Did you ever get your nitrous hooked up? Reminded me because last night my friend was racing some GTO for a couple bills and we hooked a 200 wet shot up on his 5.slow Mustang.. holy balls did that make a difference. Toned it down to a 125 after that though, trying to have it last at least a little while.

    what state do you live in? down here in the south they're all about family values and a lot of service shops are closed on saturdays. my buddy missed one of our hockey games because he left his gear in the back of his bmw and the service shop was closed and he couldn't get into his car.

    How much would it have cost to have a single key made from your original? Less than $200 I'm guessing.

    Yeah, I can deal with that though.

    Any further South (SC) and you're prohibited from buying alcohol on Sundays, as well as ANY non-grocery item before 1:30 on a Sunday. Things like Best Buy don't open until like 2, and Wal-Mart ropes all of their non-grocery aisles off. It's like a whole different country.

    Here in Virginia you can't buy liquor at anywhere but a liquor store and they are closed on sundays. Also, no buying alcohol after midnight.

    This is one of the reasons why I don't eat at Chic-fil-a. I view businesses that close on Sunday, or communities that require certain types of businesses closed on Sunday, as trying to force their beliefs. It's their right, but it's also my right to boycott them.

    One of my favorite things to do when I'm in a community that is dry is to drive across the county line, buy booze from one of the BILLION of businesses that have set up right on the border, and then bring it back. My money has gone to support the other community, and I'm now drinking in yours! :drinkers:

    The first paragraph is the dumbest reason ever to boycott something. It's like boycotting a 7-11 type store and not buying anything from there because the dude's Hindu and doesn't sell beef.

    The second I whole-heartedly agree with though because it's not a single companies philosophy, it's affecting a whole damn industry. Fucking Colorado being a blue law state. :mad:

    man I live in south texas (brazoria county) and blue laws suck.

    no liqour sales past 9, beer past midnight, If you go intoa restaraunt on sunday, you have to order food before you can get alcohol. Unicard (drinkers registration basically) to be able to drink in a restaraunt, and no wine sales outside of liqour stores.

    They are trying to push through legislation to allow the bannination of unicard, and the wine sales regulations...but goddamned churches will block it.

    I hate the teetotalers. they think whats good for them is best for EVERYONE. you should see some of the letters our papers have printed. they say "if you allow wine in walmart, whats next? gangs, porno shops, and bordellos." seriously. this state/county is gay.

    If an individual 7-11 used their religious beliefs to deny me products I desired when I desired them, I absolutely would boycott. Now if other 7-11s sold what I wanted when I wanted them, sure I'd shop there. Maybe I wasn't clear. All of the Chic-fil-as around me are closed on Sunday. Aren't they all? But it really doesn't matter what their reasoning is. Religious or otherwise, if they don't have what I want why would I go in?

    They all are closed on Sundays. But boycotting a business all the time because they're not open one day a week because of religious observation is ass-tarded at best.

    What's Chic-fil-a? Sounds mildly mexican, and delicious.

    I think you're a big boy MSP. You can resist Chic-Fil-A's brainwashing to get all their customers to convert.

    In all seriousness though, Chic-Fil-A isn't some sort of Christian Establishment. Sure they're closed on Sundays but what goes on inside the particular chain is far from holy. A friend of mine used to be a manager there and he said that there are no crosses, bibles , or praying going on and no company memos to try and get you to do so. Corporate, and mostly their CEO, started the company wanting to keep it old fashioned and family oriented. To the CEO, the sunday is in religious observance AND for employees with families. They are a quick promoting chain that opens plenty of new restaurants bringing in people from inside the company to run them. It isn't all about Christianity. They are trying to provide their employees with an honest days work and time off with their family as well as the chance to own their own Chic-Fil-A one day.

    I don't blame them for wanting Sunday off, who wouldn't? It's just that over the years I've walked past the darkened Chic-fil-as in the mall and thus never really developed a taste for it as a result. Not so much anymore, but back in the day I would only eat out on the weekends. Anyway, so now I don't go in at all. I didn't sit in the food court one day and fume and picket or anything crazy like that. It just irks me when I see businesses and governments interject (overtly or covertly) their religious bullshit into things.

    A privately held company founded by a Southern Baptist that has had cross-promotions with Focus on the Family isn't a Christian Establishment? The Chick-Fil-A closest to Focus on the Family in the Springs has a huge sign out front saying they're closed in keeping with "Christian Tradition" and to give their employees a day off.

    Yes, but it was a pointless thread to begin with. :p
