Notice every infomercial on TV these days. "Shipping and Handling" is dead and gone... the new market-tested phrase that pays is "Processing and Handling".

This is the equivalent (on a smaller scale) of the following:

Handicap = Handicapable
Illegal Immigrant = Undocumented worker
Pro Abortion = Women's right to choose
Anti Abortion = Pro life

Does this really work on people? You're going to say "Oh, this is PROCESSING not SHIPPING, I guess that makes the $15.95 extra fee worth it!"

All this fucking doublespeak.

It must be nice to not have a single real problem to worry about.

Oddly enough, whenever there is a free item offered that you only have to pay processing and handling, that fee usually matches the value of the item you got for free.

It lets them say 'free shipping' in big font on the ad. Of course it works.

I just want to point out right now that as I post this there are people at Wall Street protesting against working and earning their own way, a nation is practicing stopping the flow of 1/6 of the world oil supply, and let not forget the people being gunned down in the streets by their own government in like a half a dozen countries right now.

But the women you ordered your Rusty Wallace commemorative plate from said processing instead of shipping... whats the world coming to?
