"I own you..." I see a Thirteenth Amendment issue here. You are nobody's slave.

Looks like a great cardio workout!

I dunno...some places just aren't much fun to live in anymore!

I'd like to see this expanded to other locales.

Case goods (no upholstery) and items that can be washed or dry-cleaned IMMEDIATELY are probably safe.

I worked as a cashier at a store that did exactly what you are talking about. Bad idea on every possible level. Custys would enter an incorrect email addy, then would absent-mindedly confirm it, and then would complain that they didn't get a receipt at all. The manager would have to go through a laborious procedure to look it up and print it. Pure idiocy.

You got THAT right. This article is bogus.

I'd buy that if I had a place to store it. When it's time for me to depart this life, it'd be a nice convenience for my family and friends not to have to pick out and pay for a coffin. But then, I'm old enough to be concerned about such things. One of our parishioners kept a wooden coffin in his home that was intended for, and was indeed used for, his funeral. But then, he was an expert woodworker.

Corporate drones never set foot in brick-and-mortar retail stores. They buy all nonperishables online, and their mothers/wives/concierges/shopping services buy their groceries for them.

I wonder what else this clown might have stolen from your store.

I have a co-worker who is half black and half German - and yes, he speaks German. I don't call him anything but his own name.

Cold air blowing hard on a cold-sensitive person from the HVAC system makes life truly miserable, much more so than the cold air temperature itself. You can put on coats, 2 layers of pants, boots, a scarf, and even a hat, but you can't keep the cold off your face and your fingers and still be able to work.

Only humans can take responsibility. Whether I'm in a store or on the phone, I want all humans all the time.

It's for the PARENTS to celebrate having more time to themselves.

The water trail is most likely from their refrigeration system. Every food truck should be able to keep cold food cold and hot food hot, and no food in the microbiological "danger zone" in between.

"But when Olle said he'd like a salary comparable with his current pay because he just purchased an apartment with his boyfriend..." That sounds like somebody with an entitlement problem. The employer doesn't care about your desire to maintain a lifestyle to which you have been accustomed, or to which you would like to become accustomed. I'd have turned down the applicant no matter what pretext they offered for their salary request. The only ACCEPTABLE reason for a salary request is "It will be worth it to you to pay me X amount because I can offer so much more to your company."

That's why big box stores are staffed with so many new, inexperienced employees. The older and more experienced employees who can help you solve your problem are put out to pasture. Corporate gives them a total number for payroll dollars and they're trying to pinch pennies.

Considering that the supermarkets aren't closed, one would think that hungry Parisians could buy flour and yeast to take home and make their own baguettes! And no, you don't need one of those newfangled bread machines or even a mixer to make it happen. Just your hands, a baking sheet or pan, and an oven.

Spell check wouldn't have caught that!

You should at least be able to call for store security or a manager and have him escorted out.
