I think the connection was things that started in the 80s that don't seem that long ago.

Just goes to show how little most compliments really mean.

I understand that running RHU is a job in itself, besides juggling everything else. I will miss reading the stories and comments, that sometimes turned into a great story. On bad days, it was a comfort to know that I'm not alone. Too bad you couldn't turn it into a once a week blog. Thank you for keeping it going this long, and keeping all of us going as well.

It's not only OK to tell them no, it's necessary.

All the apostrophes were taken by people using them before an "S" to make plurals.

Then don't vote in favor of a law that requires you to be charged for each bag! My husband actually had a customer who was very upset about this. He explained the law in great detail to her, and that most of the voters voted for it. She ended up admitting that she had voted for it. ???

You should smile, you influenced a life in a positive direction.

Rite-Aid is trying to trim expenses by reducing the number of different label stock it has to buy. Food is required to have the cost per ounce (at least in Calif.), so therefore everything gets a unit cost, whether by weight or quantity. I really hate the last one, it's 72 cents per 100, so since there's 500, it will cost more. I can already hear the crusty "But it said 72 cents on the price tag!"

The manager probably would have had to do some work for once, and didn't like the idea. I had a similar situation once.

Must be a sister of the woman who had a plane to catch and had to get to the airport, but had time to go shopping for things you couldn't bring on a plane. And then got mad when an item had to be price-checked because it rang up for more than she thought it should.

The store manager probably wanted to get a handwashing sign, but this one was the only one to be found at a discount price.

I wish this man would start writing books. I need a new favorite author. Everything he writes is so vivid, I can see it happening as I read.

Somebody in an electric cart is going to hit it and wipe it all out.

Please pardon my ignorance, but what does it mean when a drink is "dry" or "bone dry?"

My guess is dementia. She doesn't understand that she's actually not making sense.

That's one thing no store in my area would permit; no masks, no face covering helmets, not even at Halloween.

I suggest a new policy, effective immediately: all drink remakes are done inside, not in the drive thru, no exceptions.

The convenience store I worked at had the same policy for the border patrol - we were less than a mile away from the border. The local sheriff's dept office was at least 20 minutes away, to even call them was a different area code. The patrol gave us their local number and we could call them for anything. Working alone late at night, it was nice to know that help was close by. We had someone scale the locked ladder to the roof one night; you never knew what crazies were out there.

She probably thought the sticky tags inside some products that set off the alarm if they aren't demagnetized, also track the location in the store.

Yes, it's Walmart, it's the "spark". I think the cases of soda make it look like the grandma is buying in bulk.

One day I saw a dad with 2 kids under the cart like that. Not a recipe for disaster or anything.

She's probably in the very early stages of dementia. She can still function, it's just little things here and there that are off.
