When Idiots Start A Race

I really don’t use this swear word—a ##hole. But maybe it really fits some people.  If I was to make a list of jerks or mean silly people—here is a member of the list.
I am adding this man from the supermarket the other day.
It was the Acme Supermarket and early evening. It wasn’t
really crowded. I had a number of items–maybe 20. So I got behind a line of three people. The customer in front was busy checking out a magazine.
The cashier just coming on came and said to me—I can
take you on Number 7—she was opening it up.
So I began to back out of the line to go over to where number 7 was.
Soon as I started to go over there. This fool (looked like the hairy guy from Crosby Stills And Nash) pointed his wagon in the direction
to cut me off and ran like an idiot. He really looked stupid and
I never saw anyone run like that with a shopping cart!!!
The cashier saw me and said–I’m sorry. (to me about the idiot)
I just said—Well —if he is in such a hurry–(the heck with him)
let him go. He was already throwing stuff down and packing it.
The cashier kept saying she was sorry to me.
Well—this guy had no manners. I never expected it from an older man—it was so stupid.
Generally people are so nice and polite—What
made this silly— I never realized I was in a race. The dumb
thing was the store wasn’t even crowded.

Card Crazy

Cards—no not the 52 that you play with in a deck of cards.  It’s the other kind.

How can I start–identity cards-like library cards.  I am not counting credit card, driver’s license or car registration..

It is the influx of store cards–shopper reward cards.  This is the endless number of card frenzy.  You have a shoppers card at drug, grocery, craft, auto and department stores.

Supposedly you get the sale price of things when a member.  Some cards count as reward points when you buy at certain stores.

Card –CARDS–cards—are taking over my wallet. Some look so much alike.

But sometimes the cards seem to take over.  You straighten them out.  Group them.  There are times you pull them out and set aside if you know you won’t be going to that particular store. Sometimes you forget them–oh my!!

The other day the cashier got annoyed with me when I handed her a card at Staples.

She goes–it’s not scanning.  Apparently I had given her a Michaels’ card instead. So no service with a smile–just hand over the card.

Anyone want to play a game of Rummy?

Time for Gobble Gobble

Ah—-the season of the feast. People roaming around the supermarket with shopping carts(wagons) busily looking down at long lists of things to get. Husband and wife–joined together—she swoops—he attacks—yes got the can of cranberries.
Others are hypnotized by looking at a phone—the wise voice on the other end—knows all—sees all—-tells them what to get.

Gobble….gobble…the cause of it all—some heavy—frozen—iced bird—you can not even lift..
Enjoy your feast all.

Service Websites–Join With Caution

Be careful of Angie’s List.  Last year I joined—paid a discount to become a member.

I was very disappointed in it.  Any handy people or services were well out of my area.  I really think the people who put all of this together should look at a map. Ridiculous.

So today I receive word they went into my paypal account and authorized payment to themselves for more of this nonsense.

I contacted Paypal.  Paypal fixed the problem.  But to all of you—Beware of this company.

If you sign up they put you down for automatic renewal  after a year-with no way to opt out.  This is a rotten way of doing business.  They are not looking out for us.

Side note–They contacted me and suggested I might be interested in their join for free accounts.  Why would I want to pay if they have a free account?  It all doesn’t make sense to me.
