The Book of Heroic Failures contains a story
about the 1978 strike of British firefighters, when
the army filled the gap for the missing firemen.
One afternoon the replacement firefighters got
a call to rescue a cat caught high in a tree. The
soldiers rushed to the scene, put up a ladder, brought
down the cat, and gave it back to the owner. The
woman was grateful and invited them in for tea.
After a wonderful time, they said goodbye, got in
the truck, and backed away-over the cat.
I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!
