The toll-free number is just to blow off steam.
Nobody wants to be bothered by the public, even if it's in their interest to know where the shopping cart is so that they can send someone to pick it up.
I blame the Republicans.

There's clearly a great business opportunity out there selling high fashion [and high-priced] clothes to plus-size women.
If the U.S. Government were to end Corporate Welfare, perhaps our great nation's entrepreneurs could focus on satisfying this need, rather than hiring lobbyists to kiss Congressional a-- to accompany a relative pittance in campaign contributions.
If Barney's chooses not to cater to plus-size women, well, those plus-size women will spend their money elsewhere, where it is welcome, and some smart businessperson will do very well serving this market.
Who cares if the media ignores such a company? 'No need to hire publicists to kiss reporters' a--es either, as word-of-mouth - for free - is the most credible advertising anyway. Media bias against people of size doesn't affect the cash register.

He had the decency to acknowledge his responsibility as commander for a mistake, and to step down.
He deserves credit for that.

#100 is quite right. This'll go viral if you link to the money quote.
Consider the opposite argument. I'll gladly concede that HETEROsexuality is NOT a choice, rather than accept a challenge to eat pussy.
