Now think to yourself, have you ever read any of those annoying flyers? Personally I don’t because I don’t believe in the principle of peeving people off through marketing. What further annoys me regarding this style of marketing is that it brings out the worst in the car owners too.

Others drive out the mall with the flyers and then choose to empty their vehicle out along the road. It’s just wrong.
