I had to do that at a learning seminar (at work). They didn't ask me again, when I did my version.. "Im a little teapot short and stout here is my handle and here is my spo... handle God damn, I'm a sugar bowl

This is not "bad math," as some stores do not give you the "2 for..." special unless you actually buy lots of 2. Since the promotions are not always "you must buy two," they are stating it on the sign. Buy 1 - it's $2.00 Buy 2 - it's $1.50 each, for a total of $3.00 Not hard

Here's hoping you kept $5.00 from the second try, so you were even from the first.

Next time (IF there is a next time), you can hand her the mop and thank her for her help. A side note/story - I was a troop leader for a Girl Scout for 12 years. We did a lot of larger events, for the scouts, as well as smaller events - every time (EVERY.TIME) we had a few mothers/troop leaders complain about some portion of the event. We always told them, "Thank you so much for your feedback - we'll look into it. We will also expect you to be on the planning committee for the next event, since you have a flair for finding things we can improve on."

Great story! I only have one comment for you though - not all handicaps are visual, so hopping out isn't a reason to assume a person isn't handicapped. My husband has DV plates - he's usually okay when we arrive at a place, but is super glad we're parked close by the end of a visit. His lower back is all metal (courtesy of the Army). Having said that... this woman definitely earned her karma, and I'm glad your friend was able to see the ending. She deserved all she got. Thanks for speaking up and alerting the police officers (and I thoroughly enjoyed how they handled it as well).

... and I don't see anything wrong with this. Am I missing something?

I could use more tailoring, but it's ironing I need the most.

It shouldn't matter where the OP is - vacation means you are OFF. Find someone else to cover for Juan - or make Juan find someone to cover for him. Not the OP's problem. Just sayin'

Is this an old story? I ask because the date is still past... Jan 24, 2015 was almost a year ago..

Too bad you couldn't catch her and make her pay for her destruction.

general rule of thumb is 1/2 your weight, in ounces (100 oz if you weigh 200 lbs, for example). Hard to do when you're stuck at a register, but that's what I've been told.

I remember those! I also remember the commercial when they blew up all the clowns and brought in Jack.

While I think it is an awesome video, I agree with SS - his hands are off the wheel, and at times he is not looking at the road at all. Totally unsafe.

I usually say "happy holidays" when people say anything to me. If they get upset, I tell them that Christmas is NOT the only holiday during the month; mine usually comes first, then Yule, then Christmas. People are narrow minded; it's their problem. As a side note; not all presents need to be religious.. this year, my daughter's gifts are all kitchen related (Hanukkah #1 is a microwave, day 2 is a blender, day 3-8 is pots/pans, hot mitts, baking set, flatware and a gift card to Starbucks.

I wonder what bike that is - it looks like a variant of mine (Can Am Spyder)

Gym in San Antonio has in their contract that they will remove you if you grunt during a workout. Plant Fitness is the name, I believe.
