If she wants a phone and doesn't have an id she could just get a no contract phone.

To me it seems weird to bag my own stuff. In most stores I've been in the cashier bags as they scan. I think I remember the local grocery store when I was a kid putting things farther down from the belt when they scanned and my mother bagging herself it though.

I'm not sure if it was this or a similar product but my Mother used to buy these hot dog shaped ice cream sandwiches at Walmart. They even had a dog on the box and/or in the name. The cashiers would see them and think they were for dogs but they were for people. http://www.cooldoginc.com/

I had a security tag left on a piece of clothing once. We went back the next day and had them remove it. Oddly when we went back the alarm went off but not when we left the store after buying it.

I've been around people that do that. I don't know if it's a misophonia type issue or anxiety or me just being afraid they'll start a fire like this guy did but that bothers me so much.

You can be allergic to raw tomatoes and still be able to eat ketchup.

That ad is before my time but I'm old enough that I remember them being advertised as "facial massager".

I've heard that there are stores with 2 way mirrors and cameras in the dressing rooms. It's creepy and I'd never try clothes on in a store that has that.

I'm assuming it is syrup that is butter flavored. Does that even exist? I don't know. When I can find it in a store I get maple syrup instead of fake syrup. Only tree blood is good enough for my pancakes.

"I'm four foot eleven and a hundred and ten pounds. I am not moving a fifty pound pot of boiling water no matter how many names you call me" That is the very first accident in this very graphic series of workplace accidents ads. "Nor am I standing on the very top run of the ladder (which it tells you not to do) to clean the damn ceiling." The fourth one was a similar accident but they were on the next to the top rung. WARNING, GRAPHIC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwCyVku1HvI

Once in a thrift store I found the book Brokeback Mountain with the kids books. I don't know if a worker or customer put it there. Maybe they thought it was a kid's book because it was a short story so it was very thin and there were cowboys on the front.

It can be really hard to get an id. I went nearly a decade without one and then when I tried to get one again it took me almost a year to come up with enough points to be able to get one. https://dmv.ny.gov/forms/id44.pdf That still isn't discrimination against people without a driver's license since there are ids for non drivers.

This lady really does need cps called on her. If they keep coming back surely someone can get their info and report them? It's not like cps would take her side when they hear that she is angry that people won't allow her child to drink poison.

I thought it was a tongue and they left out the middle by mistake.

Or they could have multiple shifts with different employees.

"Though I wonder, if she is grounded, why was she in the library?" I was assuming this was the school library.

Once in Walmart I needed something that was way in the back of a shelf, maybe a bit up. We asked a worker to get it thinking they would get a ladder or step stool. They just climbed up on the shelves and got it leaving me thinking that I could have just done that myself and not bothered them.

Looking at this makes me imagine a customer trying to insist that the /96 means it expires in 2096.

""It took me by surprise so my answer was, "I have a boyfriend" not the "not interested" it should have been." Honestly, that line never made sense to me. It's a cop-out answer than a proper one." The reason people say that is because a man is more likely to accept that answer and go away. They'll see you as already taken or another man's property or worry that you might have an angry violent boyfriend that will beat them up. Just saying not interested might make them angry because you rejected them or make them try things to get you interested.

As a customer that only pays with cash this confuses me. Unless they asked or the customer had a credit card in their hand which the story didn't specify how would they even know if that customer planned on paying with a card or even had a card?

I buy those sometimes. They are so good I just eat them plain.

I wouldn't patronize any business that acted hostile like that towards Pokemon Go players. (with the exception of places where it would be inappropriate or unsafe to use a cell phone at all)

I got my first Webtv in 1998 and used it all the way until I got my first computer in 2008. It was a nice cheap alternative to a pc at the time. Now you can get pcs a lot cheaper and do more online with your phone than a Webtv could do back then.
