    Things You Have Personally Boycotted

    OPTIONAL: Why?

    ESPN because I'm tired of their agenda driven BS.

    SUBWAY when Jared was spokesman because I've taken care of myself my entire life and never got paid a dime for it. Fat ass got skinny eating sandwiches and got paid for it. F that.

    SUPER HERO MOVIES because it's always the same ol crap. Against unbeatable odds and about to lose then may miraculous comeback and win.

    Billy Fuccillo (Mr Huge) because I hate him and Kia sucks

    I will honestly watch if one of my teams is playing. But other than that I will not go on their website or watch anything else

    wal-mart

    because i simply got tired of handing money over to an employee who had zero customer service skills - or basic ability to communicate or say thank you or just be a human

    i'd rather shop somewhere that trains their employees basic human communication skills

    The 49'ers after they backed Crapperdick and the NFL soon after. That is not the platform for social issues, their job is to play football and shut the **** up. I haven't missed it in the least.

    The list of places you go must be short then. Customer service is a lost art.

    very true.......i have a few choices when it comes to buying groceries. i removed wal-mart from that list. Kroger goes out of their way to make up for that customer service shortfall.......target does as well but they dont have gas points

    Taco Mayo

    Got sick after eating there once in college. Have never been back. That was over 35 years ago.

    Never will go back either. Nowadays I boycott all fast food and soft drinks.

    Twitter- signed off in April.

    McDonald's-- haven't had McDonald's in 10 years. The smell of McDonald's just leaves me nauseous.

    Movie theater's-- haven't gone to the "movies" since the last Woody Allen film which was released in July of 2016. Just tired of the liberal movie stars with zero education telling us how to live and people following them like sheep.

    Award shows on tv--- pointless drivel

    Nothing, because it wouldn't make a shit's worth of difference and I don't hate anything to that degree I guess.

    The NFL this year.

    Not sure if it's actually a boycott or I'm just tired of politics gumming up entertainment. It's also why I don't watch awards shows--well, that and they suck.

    but you can get venison there now!

    Red Lobster. Actually, more like a "FU, I'm not coming back". So I guess that's not really a boycott, because there's no implication that I would return if something changes.

    I have never boycotted an entertainer or business due to political opinion or their eagerness to voice it. If Hitler made good apple fritters then I'd buy em.

    Jack in The Box...

    A few years ago both my wife and I caught the Norovirus after eating their about 2 days before Christmas. It was the worst Christmas in my life. At one point I was sitting on the toilet with by far the worst case of very gassy diarrhea I ever had while puking into a 5 gallon bucket to the depth of about 3 inches… I showered soon after while shaking like a leaf in the wind.

    I'm calling it a boycott so I can feel righteous about not eating there.

    i cant say i boycott anything but i do despise going into Wal Mart just becuase it feels like ive fallen into a leper colony. i do go there to drop off my used motor oil after doing oil changes, but thats just because i dont really have to go inside and its so close to my house
