Integrity? NOT!

I'm getting truly disgusted with some of these commercials. Two struck a nerve last night.

Little Halo Oranges

The little kid in the commercial catches his dad picking up one of his Halo Oranges and immediately adopts a posture of accusation. Dad asks if it's okay if he has one of the kid's Halos and the kid comes back with a smart mouthed response. 

How selfish can that little brat be? He has a whole box of them! 
Not to mention that he probably didn't pay for them--his dad probably bought them. 
But how about how disrespectful to the man the kid is? If I ever used that tone or used that smart mouth, I would have no mouth to speak with today.

So....The company that markets Little Halo Oranges is condoning DISRESPECT  and SELFISHNESS.

Chevy Tahoe

This ad shows a girl being driven home after she finishes babysitting. The mother of the children pulls out her wallet to pay this young girl, and clarifies that it's $40. Now that's a whole lot of money for a babysitting gig to begin with; but on the drive home the girl is checking out all the features on the Tahoe and decides that $40 isn't enough, and asks for $60. This is wrong on so many levels! Do I have to even go into any of these levels? We don't get paid by how much an employer is worth! We get paid on the basis of how much the employer thinks we are worth. Sometimes it's not enough, and sometimes it's too much, but never, ever, ever is a person supposed to jack up a fee because it looks like the payer can afford it. What if the payer looked at the girl's clothes and just decided she should get $20 instead of $40? Wouldn't that cause an outcry? Either way it's GREED in it's simplest form.

So...the company marketing the Chevy Tahoe is condoning GREED.

And that's what I think......................

Two-and-a-half Men

Oh boy! What some people think is funny is so far beyond my reasoning!

Two-and-a-half Men

First, when Charlie Sheen was on this show, I couldn't enjoy it because of Charlie's character and how he viewed women. I thought it was disgraceful.

But NOW? 

Alan Harper, who used to be the decent respectful one has gone way, way over to the other side. I finally just flipped the channel because I just couldn't watch any more. 

So now...Alan is a freeloader, living off of a person who is not related to him...living free of charge...and yet still tries to get more than has already been extended to him. SO NOT FUNNY! But to make his character even worse, he has suddenly become a "Charlie-plus." His attitude and behavior toward women is worse than Charlie's character! 

He's CRUDE. 
He's DISGUSTING. 
He's OBNOXIOUS. 

Who likes this stuff? There is nothing funny, enjoyable, or appealing about a man who mooches off of someone, tries to take advantage of him, doesn't pay for anything, including his own dates, and talks about sex like a fourteen year old. Not to mention, that he is really quite unattractive. Then he has a kid who is just as disgusting--a kid who thinks having sex and passing gas are equals. 

Ashton Kutcher? He's awesome. He and the Berta character are the only redeeming characters in this show.The show should be renamed

"One Man and a Couple of Jerks."

And that's what I think............
