Ignore Button

Victory and Associates

From the Album Better Luck Next Life

Be the first to review this item

OK, no sidetracking here: Harley was right. It is easy to find the "ignore button". Just go to Amazon.com and type in "Ignore Button".

I apologize.

Back on topic, my most recent purchase was Explore Asian Organic Black Bean Spaghetti, 7.05-Ounce (Pack of 6). I really like it, and it helps me avoid my most dangerous form of carbs, pasta.

Sorry, I mis-interpreted the intent of your post. I apologize, and am moving on. I did not intend to 'lecture', but rather to inform.

I prefer not to use the "Ignore" button (and I certainly have no trouble "finding it"!), it strikes me as a "head in the sand" approach, but of course, others can do as they wish.

Well, I'm glad that's done with.
But, what am I going to do with the Ignore Button that Amazon is sending me?

Your video response told me that you found ERD50's post on orange juice boring. My personal reaction was that this was a petty way to respond.

For the record, I found that post to be interesting and informative.

That item is great especially for the support hose they make you wear after joint replacement .

Is the amazon.com ignore button that redduck is getting similar to the bright red history eraser button from Ren and Stimpy?


My latest purchase from amazon was a 2 ring mini binder and hole punched index cards. This is for the son that is struggling in spanish so he can write his vocab words and study them.

A new cooking grid for the propane grill, the original has deteriorated too much.

And I've always wanted one of these - a five pound Hershey's chocolate bar. DW is gonna yell at me over that one.

On impulse, a one pound Snickers bar.

Be still my heart!!! If I ever find out that I have two weeks to live, I'm ordering that five pound Hershey bar for SURE. (With the one day delivery option.)

You might want to order the giant Hersheys now, eat it in a day or two. After eating it, you probably will feel you only have two weeks to live--so then you can order (and eat) another one. Best guess is, you will die fat and happy within two weeks.

It's been on my wish list there for ~3 years, I figured it was about time while the weather is cool. Actually it was only about 5 years ago that I found out such a thing even existed - it was a prize in some raffle.

And true to my prediction, DW was NOT happy about my buying it. She says I have to keep it hidden from her.

My SIL gave me one of those one pound Snickers Bars for Christmas. Actually better than a regular Snickers as it has more peanuts. Still eating on it...

That is a rockstar order list, rodi.
And slightly dangerous!

And it's true... I swear. We were doing yard work this morning when DH realized he didn't have anymore stump killer. He started to chop down the tree and realized the chain was dull and couldn't be sharpened again. And... while I was on amazon, I got myself some brand new panties. 100% cotton Hanes.

I live large, I tell ya.
