@Molly_Mog, I can guess why your store changed hands. That ain't no way to run a company. I've long suspected that the staff at the HQ of most retail companies never set foot in any retail store, certainly not one of their own stores! The bigwigs all have hirelings to pick up whatever they need; the whiz kids and the underlings order everything from Amazon.

One place where I used to work, I made it a point to say everything I was told to say, because we'd get reprimanded if we didn't. Then, I transferred to a different location (same company) where I was immediately reprimanded for letting the line get too long because I'd been saying everything I'd been told to say at the other store (even though both stores were under exactly the same orders from Corporate). Bend the rules, but don't get caught...

All cakes that depict the birth process are cake mistakes by definition.

Perfect. Phi Beta Kappa, University of Chicago, '76. College guarantees nothing. By and large, it's a waste of time and money.

As a custy, sometimes we have very limited time on lunch break and we don't want or care about any drinks. We just want to get our food order in ASAP.

I think somebody vandalized the sign by moving two letters from the middle to the end.

I saw on the back of a car the other day, in white ornate script much like the above, the initials aSs. If the initials had been rearranged with the surname at the end, the result would still have spelled ASS. Some people might just want to forgo monograms.

I wonder whether the woman herself has ever had to work at whatever job she could get. My guess is that she comes from a very privileged background and has never had to worry about money.

Get real...the CAT isn't going to complain about dents in the can...only about delays in getting the can opened! As long as a can isn't rusted or leaking, there shouldn't be any problem with its contents.

I think the beer is for the PARENTS to celebrate with.

One would think that the custy would have had the civility to ASK to get a better look at the tattoo. You could always yell "Owwww!" good and loud.

You always have to be careful with the appearance of brown frosting, chocolate mousse, chocolate filling, or any other foods that are brown and squishy. Normally, a pumpkin stem should be represented with green frosting, and formed with striations up the sides. No way should it look like poo.

WHY didn't those jerks feed their hungry kid? That kid will choose their nursing home someday...

Given that it's an ice cream truck, I would expect the medication to be insulin/syringes, Metformin, or some other medication for diabetes.

I'd eat that, but then, it would need to have a LOT more fried chicken as the filling. I have absolutely no sweet tooth whatsoever and I eat only a moderate amount of carbs, but I do love my PROTEIN!!!!!!!!!!!

Antivenin is extremely labor intensive, time-consuming, and dangerous to produce from the venom of each specific type of snake. I can see why it would be expensive; that said, 83K seems like a lot of money. As for the other charges, emergency services are always overcharged.

That's how I felt when I graduated from college, back in 1976. I hated the place. It was inexpensive enough back then that I didn't have student loans, so I actually WAS free.

Was he too oblivious to notice that he had just bludgeoned you in the head?

Looks like a salt shaker with golf clubs or feet coming out of it.

When I watched the clip, an ad for condoms showed up in the corner.

Not that long ago I had a co-worker ask, "Are you a virgin?" I was, and am, a happily married senior citizen, so no. Go figure...

Agreed... I don't think reusing watermelon boxes is a "fail." That said, the store should put some signs on the side, e.g., "Sweet Corn [price] per ear/dozen"

Let's just say that substance abuse may have played a role in this.
