Oh, damn!  I shop there all the time.

"...had been very recently used at brick-and-mortar stores run by the Dallas, Texas based high-end retail chain."

Brick-and-mortar.
High-end.
Pick one.

Seriously, I hate it when people overuse hyphens.

What I find funny is poor people hate rich people but run to spend their last dollar on lottery tickets to be.. well.. rich.

Get a job sir.. like your parents did!

FTA: We are taking steps, where possible, to notify customers whose cards we know were used fraudulently after making a purchase at our store."

wouldn't the customer know before them that someone was doing fraud purchases on their card? That sounds like the most bullshiat way to say 'we aren't doing shiat, and we sure aren't going to notify a bunch of customers that we gave their card out. But yea if a customer reports fraud to their bank who traces it to us we will send them a letter letting them know there was fraud on their card so it sounds like we did something.....

Finally, smart criminals.
What moron steals from poor people?  Aside from politicians,  I mean.  And they are smart enough to enjoy economies of scale.

Seriously, I really hope Nieman Marcus shoppers aren't looking for sympathy.  It is in the dictionary,  between shiat and syphilis.

HIring cheap kids fresh out of school to do your IT programming is working just great, isn't it?  Along with the sweatshop programmers in China and India ;)

Those two terms aren't mutually exclusive (brick and mortar and high end), unless you're just trying to say that if you have more than  1 hyphenated word in a sentence, it's "overuse."  There's nothing wrong with their use of hyphens.  Now, their complete fail of use of commas is a different story.

anyway, whatever.  Hardly even worth talking about.

"Brick-and-mortar" usually means a real store where people can go and look at the merchandise, as opposed to "online".

It has nothing to do with the quality of the mechandise or the customers it caters to.

There's something intriguing about the idea of Anonymous or Russian mobsters using a midget submarine made from Waterford crystal and purchased on a Jerb Creator's dime.

Interesting thought.  When lottery ticket buyers buy lottery tickets, do they get the money from the US government?  When they don't win, are they reimbursed for their losses by Uncle Sam?

Financiers, OTOH.....

But could an experienced worker pass teh Airport Test?  Sitting half a day in an airport with an oldster; ermahgerd, SOOOO CREEPY.  This is why we need more wimmin in IT: guys don't know anything about shoes, especially the older ones.  HR Six out.

While it makes you feel good to post those false facts.. it still doesn't make them facts.  I am by no means poor and when I invest the government doesn't give me my money back.  I do however pay enough taxes to feed the lazy pukes on welfare and food stamps though.. and with that money a shat pile of them are at the local corner store every day buying lottery tickets so.. in a way yes, we do fund them when they don't win.

So, have a good day now.. ya' hear?

Why didn't anyone mention that you get what you pay for!?!?

Good lord. Neiman Marcus isn't for "the rich". It's for people who want to pay too much to wear something off the rack.
 
2014-01-11 10:04:26 AM  
These would be great credit cards upon which to duplicate and commit fraud.  The average Neiman Marcus shopper has more money than brains, and wouldn't necessarily notice the extra $5,000 worth of purchases on their credit card statement.

I thought it was a long-accepted convention to hyphenate compound words that compose a well-integrated single concept.

This is not an anti-grammar Nazi troll; it is a good-willed attempt to generate some much-needed, clear-headed discussion on the generally-accepted and up-to-date usage of hyphens.

Yep. It's actually not that damn hard to secure your data, it's just that most companies see IT as an operational burden and so cut corners wherever possible. I work as a DBA in the manufacturing industry, and despite the fact that I directly control our entire distribution network, I'm not considered part of the core business, because...computers! It's insane.

Calling someone a bagger isn't a whole lot different than calling an Asian person a "chink" or a Mexican a "Spick" or  Lesbian a "dyke" or a black person.. well you know.

False equivalency is false.  Equating a political orientation to a hereditary trait is not a reasonable comparison.  It isn't nice, but it isn't equal either.

Except, of course, for the mental deficients who say that corporations are people too.  That kind of stupid has to be genetic, as in "odd number of chromosomes" genetic.

Thanks for clearing that up.  Now I see that is ok to start calling paraplegics and amputees cripples again.
