You've, no doubt, heard of the Cash for Clunkers program that was to encourage the economy by enticing consumers to trade in their gas-guzzlers for a new fuel-efficient vehicle. You may have even heard about trading in your old refrigerator. But there is a new twist on this concept that you've probably not heard of and probably would never even think about.
Last week on a local radio program there was a commercial for a new "Cash for Clunkers" program. It, surprisingly enough, was a commercial for the convenience store. That's right. They are offering a 25% discount on a new . . . um . . . appliance when you bring in your "old worn out one." Can I just say that is gross!!
First, why would anyone bring in their old . . . appliance?? Second, and more importantly, what in the world would the store do with them? Again, that's just gross!!
