Taking a stand

I picketed Sears & Roebuck once for five years. A private little picket, more like a boycott really. They'd been kind enough to give me a credit card and because those were the very lean times I fell behind in my payments and couldn't keep up with their 21% interest rate.

They resorted to calling our house day and night. They called once too often, at 6:00 AM and after one of my kids answered they threatened to take "your mom to jail". That's what started my protest. I'm just happy they came to their senses over the years and neither I nor Sears seem to be carrying a grudge.
