I am on a mailing list for shoplocal.com . It sounds like a great deal, but most of the deals are for stuff I don’t need or use so I glance at it and forget it. Earlier this week they had a Home Depot ad that included a sale on the bead board stuff like I used in pantry. We’re going to use it all around the laundry room too and need about 3 more bundles of it.
DH and I spent an hour trying to figure out if it was worth the $4 off per bundle to get it now and maybe put it up earlier than we’d planned.
Then, I noticed that the ad I was looking at was for WI? wtf? I went into the change location, put in my zip and it still seemed to be WI? I bailed, got on the Home Depot site and sure enough, the stuff isn’t on sale here. :0(
I got another email from shoplocal.com today and I thought god I must have it wrong in my profile so I go to change it. Well, we live in NH, all zip codes in NH start “03” the program truncated my zip code so it dropped the 0!
I HATE brain-dead software. More, I hate being vitimized by stupid programming!
I deleted every single email from them I still had in my in box. Why should I keep them? They’re all deals for WI!

P.S. DH (former programmer that he is) says the problem is that they’ve defined the zip code field as a number, when it’s alphanumeric. I just assumed that they’d done an auto edit, but what do I know? (Not enough to be a programmer, I guess.)
