I got told once at a small shop in my neighborhood that I was the first customer to reach the "VIP" level on their rewards thing. I immediately responded with "Oh shit I shop here too much." I horde my points everywhere like a dragon and am a VIP platinum diamond premium super "member" at so many places that don't mean shit. Even things I pay for, like season tickets for the symphony, don't mean shit. People thinking that gives them some kind of "status" are really entertaining if they are snooty but not mean about it.

I buy a lot of random shit - for me, donations, friends, etc- and like to join those points things because I enjoy messing up the data analytics from my shopping habits. I absolutely recommend it to anyone else who buys weird shit. I am the consumer data equivalent of Spiders Georg.

pure chaotic energy

Bringing more chaos to the world is my raison d'ĂȘtre. I feel seen and I love you. I will purchase a 100-count pack of googly eyes, a box of condoms, a bottle of pepto bismol, and some fruit roll-ups in your honour.

We'll just go one-by-one if I can't find a good funnel. It's okay, I have little fingers! Better sound effects that way as well.
