Couples Don't Care About Valentine's Day!As Valentine's Day approaches and stores fill with oversized stuffed animals, flowers, and heart-shaped balloons, many couples have lost interest in this annual occasion. Recent surveys show the average person will spend just $34 on V-Day and more than half of adults completely refuse to participate in any type of celebration or gift giving.

America's Most Hated2017 culminated as the year of calling out problematic behavior where consumers showed their spending power and loyalty (or lack thereof) to certain products. The year began with huge stories about United Airlines, Uber, and Facebook with very politically charged issues and varying levels of love/hate relationships with President Trump.

However, money seems to be America's biggest gripe as Wells Fargo, University of Phoenix, and Equifax top the list as America's Most Hated companies! Which businesses do you hate and why?

Slow and Furious Drivers!Our Sarah is known for driving below the speed limit. It often allows for a calm commute, is more efficient and should be a lot safer.

With marijuana legalization, it is important to never indulge before driving because it greatly obstructs reaction time and could cause a few bad decisions. One driver put his car into Auto-Pilot after Jesus told him to "take the wheel"!

Has a touch ever helped when suffering any level of pain?
