Apology accepted as that did hurt my feelings Lightning. I did chuckle at your comment that 3 is greater than 4 because math. Molly, maybe it's because I'm from Florida and there is a reason why my state is a stereotype that you drop your IQ points when you cross the state line.

Oh yeah and Lightning - I will take that Darwin Award for drinking milk when I know I'm allergic to it. Better then going to the hospital, waiting for hours in the E.R., getting tests that are not needed done, and then get medicine that we then have to be walked through of taking it, what's in it, what are the side effects, can it actually hurt my body, and then go over the bill and see if my insurance will even cover any of it since half the time they really don't. So yeah, I'd like to thank all my readers for sharing their comments and yes I will make sure to ask all the questions or just not order steak.

I guess I'm mega lucky then that all the places I eat out at, actually mention that their meats have seasonings on their menu. Then at the bottom is information on how they rate their cooked meats. I even went to a place that their whole theme was all the spice! And they had a whole page dedicated to describing every one plus what intensity it will have on you. I only went because we were invited by a friend who loved that place. Hell, even the seafood place describes their seasoning. It was such an expectation to see that printed that it never crossed my mind that there is a place out there that doesn't mention anything. It was a very harsh lesson but I still feel it's odd that they didn't mention anything on their menu. Especially since it had so many different peppers and spices. 17 is a lot in my mind and what if they just keep adding to that number so that one day they'll reach 20? I'll never know. I didn't call back the manager because they were a little bit busy, and we didn't want to just sit there and wait. Plus the woman could have stalled out on actually calling him just to spite us.

I'm sorry. I know that this is a bad joke but all I could think about when I read that was, "We're going to have a meeting to discuss the importance of having a meeting." I hope that their meeting went well after the threat to the threat meeting was taken care of. I still get a chuckle when I say that out loud. -_-

Yeah I second that Jeff. Tom has every right to be grossed out by old women wearing sexy outfits. It's all a matter of personal feelings/taste. I too feel a bit uneasy when trying to imagine old woman dressed in lingerie. Guess that just makes me another awful person. I chuckled at the rest of his stuff though. I liked the card thing/cash thing joke, and the baby feud was cute.

Hot seller or fast mark down?

I also try to apply the hello and thank you parts online too. Nearly every online store has live chat which makes communicating so much easier than over the phone since I'm hard of hearing. Same thing happens though, I'll start to thank them for helping me find stuff and then I get a message saying I've been disconnected as the agent logged off. I can type pretty fast but I wonder if there's a totally different type of manners that applies to online communication between customer and staff?

Maybe I'm not understanding the problem because I'm colorblind. All I see is a chocolate bunny holding a giant chocolate carrot. Both made out of a mold. Has this person never seen a carrot drawn with the green stuff in the shape of a ball? I have all the time with Loony Toons. So unless the squiggle lines that the bunny is sitting on is the offense, I'm not really getting this.

Actually, I wish my McPlace would tell me to park so that they would cook my order fresh. However, they never do and they just want the food gone so that they don't have to make stuff new. Every time we order before we even drive off, we will open that bag and personally check out the food. I'm sorry but I will not eat food that tastes like it's been out there since that morning. I did once and just ended up throwing all that food away. My mom's not the kind of person to drive all the way back and have them remake the food. It's a waste of her gas, and everyone's time. So when it was that bad that one time, we now have to hold up the line to make sure it's correct before we drive away. Also, yes I know that we could park and just go inside to talk to them. Did that a few times and they gave us the feeling/impression of "why didn't you just tell us at the window?" Who knows? But we only bother with fast food when we're uber lazy in not wanting to cook dinner. Which isn't too often. TL:DR - Just cook the darn food fresh when it's past dinner time, and toss it if it's been there since you opened.

Story would've been perfect if you counted out his thirty-six dollars, in all ones, as slow as you could be.

I read these stories for the frowns, smiles, and going through a whole range of emotions: shock, anger, confusion, happy, content, justified. My faith in humanity that gets destroyed and restored on a daily basis. Over all these have taught me how to be a better customer myself. Then it gets all tossed out the window when I come to the comment sections and you guys post the best comedy of all time in one word. I laughed so much I don't know if that's a good thing or not. I'll count it as good as I feel good. ^_^

My mom was a member of that group too but quit because all they would do is piss and moan about how ugly people's homes were. In our town the Red Hat group is a sub group under the Women's City Beautician Society or something like that. They go around and make sure places are kept clean, and that historical buildings are taken care of so that they can be preserved for future generations. Yeah buildings are old as a part of history and aren't allowed to be given fresh coats of paint, or anything that would make them look nice. In fact damages generally aren't fixed unless they are so bad that the building might be lost. Which is nutty in my mind. Preserving something shouldn't mean leave it untouched to the tests of time until you step in to keep it from collapsing. So going around saying that they look ugly and trashing looking is pretty stupid in my book. Course they never did anything to help keep it nice either. Just donate money to clean up the yards. I was real glad when mom told me she was better than that and quit that nonsense.

Wow. So a couple who were worried about their pets gets sued when they tell the truth, with proof of what happened to their betta, and the owner acts like they're the victims because they almost accidentally killed a pet. I use to have three bettas each in their own 5gal tanks. My first I had trained like a dog to do tricks and it was a blow that he got sick so fast that when mom was on her way to pick up some medicine for him, he went. Second, I made the mistake of not getting a heater as I was told by a guy who owned bettas himself that they didn't need them. So my last betta has one in his tank. However, I ended up moving him into a smaller tank as for some odd reason he became stressed in the big tank. Always hiding behind the filter and refusing to eat. Nothing I was doing was helping but as soon as he was in the smaller one he was back out in the open and eating comfortably again. The tank is a 1.5gal tank and I have been thinking about getting a 3gal but then don't want him to go back to not eating ever. Point is, a fish is just as much of a pet as a dog is. I have dogs and cats but I love my betta, and my other tetras that have taken over the old tanks. With heaters so that freezing thing doesn't happen again.

I can not see the stairs at all. I just see solid grey flooring. So if I were there I would be that one customer who would fall down them and probably brake my ankle. I go by hand rails to see if there are stairs or not. I won't risk tripping or falling if I can see the stairs but there's no rail. This would be a scare factor if there were no hand rails.

Actually. Would you be the type of person who paid that 1.59 in quarters, with some dimes and pennies maybe, or would you be the type of person who decides to empty out their jar of pennies because you've been collecting it forever and what better place to unload that then the grocery store?

Actually, my mom and I are like that picture. We have a shopping list but lots of times we forget to put everything on the list and try to remember it at the store. Then there are times where we've forgotten stuff on the list. So we'll end up going all over the place getting all the stuff we need. However, it's annoying when the store splits stuff up. Like putting pet food way in the back on the opposite side of the store from the rest of the groceries.

Lol! You not using the internet when it can come in handy. Such as showing clerks emails with email coupons on them or deals that they might be confused about. Because going from pure memory is oh so reliable. Oh and yes buying something for grandkids to make for their mother is a total waste of time. They don't need to do anything fun, or make her something to say that they love her. That's just silly and dumb.

True but her parents never cared to make her get clean when they sent her to school every day. So they obviously didn't care about being clean and they're adults.

Actually, if she was dirty there's the possibility that she just doesn't care about hygiene. Loads of people out there don't give a crap how they look or smell. They just tune it out. I had a friend like that in elementary school. She stank of something awful, and when I asked she told me she didn't shower because it was dumb to. Still, I would be totally grossed out seeing someone plop their big old sweat boobs down on the counter. Especially if I had planned on putting my stuff there moments after they left. No I don't want your sweat on my stuff. It's wet and slimy feeling to me.

I'm heavy and have a large chest. I don't wear a bra simply because I can't find one that supports the weight. Still, I use a can but never ever do I just lap my breasts down on a counter! That's nasty as all get out. This person had every right to not serve this sweat mama of a woman. I certainly would never serve anyone who did that regardless of weight. Heck, if I ever see anyone be that nasty I'd go to another counter.

And then they'll stop marking it, and forget why they did so in the first place. Especially when they're heavy drinkers. That woman I know would get so plastered drunk from drinking a full case of beer that she couldn't comprehend hardly anything, and would tell you firmly the very next day that she never drank anything because she has a limit on such things. Heavy drinkers like her are so addicted that they even blank that addition out of their minds simply because they can not cope without it ever. That is the very sad thing about addiction.

I like how you like to think that drunks can limit themselves by saying "I'll only have one or two at most" lol. They just don't think or even care as they keep chugging them down. Even my mom will loose count when she's had a super heavy stressed out day, and I have to strongly remind her how many she's had. It's also way too easy for them to forget that they've already had a few, and they think that they're still on their first when in reality their on their sixth. I knew a heavy drinker once who refused to believe that she was drinking fresh drinks. In her mind she was slowly drinking her first, even though she'd go through a whole case of beer.

Sounds like they ordered the water and then dumped it out over at the machine, and got the drinks they really wanted since water is cheaper than soda. It's still theft and I probably would have walked by and muttered a bit too loudly, "Bless me and my family father for stealing sodas instead of water" and then scurry off before they can say anything.
