Pretty much every day. They put one on my route to work, so what choice do I have? Bastards!!!
What's interesting is that in the part of Hollywood I work in, is we're just surrounded by Mom-and-Pop coffee shops (there's one downstairs too) that are upscale nonetheless. You could find a Starbucks about three blocks away though. I don't drink coffee and so, I wouldn't understand the rage behind paying upscale prices for fancy coffee (even though I understand the trendiness behind it). I know if I received a Starbucks gift card for Christmas, I'd have to raise an eyebrow in disappointment. Ah, it's times like these I'm glad I'm not married or in a relationship.
Gift Cards to places I don't like don't really upset me. I just use those as gifts for someone else and it saves me the money I would have spent on that person anyways.
For example, my dad got me an iTunes gift card, but I know how to get anything I want for free, so I never use iTunes to buy music. So this girl I am dating just got an iPod for Xmas (she knew she was getting it. Her parents don't buy expensive gifts so her brothers and her all kind of do it for each other instead) so I gave her the iTunes card as if I bought it and "put thought behind it".
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...
