Sometimes shopping your conscience is annoying

Like when you go to the beauty supply store to get the gel that you can’t make, the good slick down your edges gel*, and the clerk tells you that they stopped carrying that brand about a year and a half ago but she thinks they have it at the national chain down the street and so you start heading over there, only there’s a sign proclaiming shame on them because they’re going through a labor dispute and how can you shop at a place that’s in the middle of a dispute, especially when you’d rather give your money to a mom & pop anyway and maybe if you had an iPhone, and were therefore a better person, you could just go to the site of the company and see where all they’re sold but you don’t so you can’t, so you just go back to your car and return home, as gel-less as you started.

I should just learn how to make it.


*that really you probably wouldn’t buy if you googled, but you refuse to google it because it works so well :-/

    I have no problem at all walking past those labor union dispute people. Tell me where the store is and I’ll buy your gel for you.
