Deep Thought #55: is shopping considered habitual?Friday, I joined the Helpful Hardware Club. Ordinarily (pre-Choose The Blue) I went to Home Depot for anything home-improvement related. Sure, their stores are large and odds are good that they'll have what I want, but I won't shop there if the price is that I'm indirectly supporting one political party over another (94% of Home Depot's contributions went to the right-wing sociopaths).
So, when I needed a little home improving, I went to Ace Hardware instead (and spent money!)
Now, my new habit of going anywhere but Home Depot means I will spend many fewer dollars with them, and go to either Lowe's or Ace Hardware instead (they were closer anyway)! Caveat: there's no information online about Home Depot competitors' political contributions: I could change my habits again, once that information becomes public.
Frankly, I know Home Depot doesn't care that they lost me as a customer (my protest is akin to whizzin' in the wind), but I'll feel better knowing that I'm not helping The Most Corrupt President Since William Howard Taft, and Everybody Knows how awful that was!
