Here at Ruinist Tower we often bang our heads against the wall late into the night as we find ourselves picking our way through the perilous state of existence today. Here are two examples of how life slips away before our very eyes.
(1) BABY, I DON'T LOVE YOU ANYMORE. I AM RETURNING YOU IN YOUR ORIGINAL CONDITION FOR A FULL REFUND. SORRY
It's true that T.K.Maxx is the most seductive of shops. Looking for something entirely other than these, The Ruinist came away with some reasonably priced sneakers. Earlier this morning, in between activities of the utmost importance, we read the small print printed in the shape of a heart on back of the TK MAXX receipt:
"LOVE ME OR RETURN ME
Shopping is like love: you just know when it's right. Hence, our 14 day 'Love Me or Return Me' refund or exchange policy. We reckon within 2 weeks you probably know whether you're in love with your purchase or not. If you're not, just return it in original condition with this receipt for an exchange or refund. It's quick, it's simple and you never have to say, 'It's not you, it's me'.
(2) YOUR PERSONAL UNION CARBIDE STATUS. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE
Right by Ruinist Towers, there's a small pathway through to the High Street and here seems like a good a place as any to dump some rubbish. This is usually cardboard, broken furniture or old suitcases devoid of personal contents.
The Council has installed a microwave-driven CCTV pod on a nearby lamp post to film those in the act of dumping rubbish at this spot.
When rubbish is deposited there, special Environmental Wardens place this sticker on the trash:
Could you be an environmental criminal and not even know it? Keep yourself disciplined, just in case the environment goes to shit.
