Morning Mix Show Notes 11/2
What's in your garage? It could be worth thousands! The last time we ever talk about Kim Kardashian and why complaining on Twitter can actually do some good for humanity.
Not to say that deep down inside we have a little hoarder in us, but, I think a small part of us all understand why those people do what they do so this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. A new survey says that the average person has over five thousand dollars worth of junk in their garage. Some you may need again, some you're never going to use and a lot you just can't bring yourself to throw away. That junk also takes up a lot of space. One out of five people say they have boxes in their garage that they haven't unpacked from the last time they moved. (Guilty.) Ten percent of people say that they never, ever plan on cleaning out the garage ever because it's too daunting of a task.
Kim Kardashian broke her silence yesterday and addressed her divorce from Kris Humphries. She says that she married "for love" and that she can't believe she even has to defend her decision and wouldn't have spent so much time on something just for a TV show. She agreed that making her wedding a TV circus wasn't the smartest decision, but she says, "It's who I am!" She said she felt like she was on a roller coaster with no way off. She added that she got "caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and didn't want to disappoint a lot of people." Kim also asked that we...wait for it...RESPECT HER COURAGE (let that sink in for a minute) for walking away from the marriage. It's not like you're walking away from a horrible marriage to a man who drinks too much and beats you. You were married for 72 days and jetted around the world in private planes with people falling at your feet catering to your every whim. Shut up and go away.
Back in September we told you about Bank of America charging customers $5 a month to use their debit cards. Well, social media sites like Twitter and Facebook went nuts with BofA customers complaining, threatening to leave the bank and go with credit unions or smaller local banks. Well, the Bank of America higher ups heard us and have now reversed their decision to charge people that $5 fee. No word on if the other big banks like Wells Fargo and Chase will also follow suit and reverse the fee.
