Salad Bar Days

Salad Bar Days

Why not chat when you meet an old friend? Because I’m right behind you in line, that’s why! How come some people in a food line, a checkout line, a ticket line decide to stop and chat and hold up everybody behind them? The other day when I said as politely as I could, “Ahem, […]

Why help them lie?

Why help them lie?

The other day a lady told me her car got great gas mileage. “Really?” I asked. “How good?” “Oh, I don’t know, but that’s what they told me.” It turns out great was 22mpg. I once had a car that got 42mpg. I checked it. Today we get more and more deceptive claims. Like one […]

No explosions allowed!

No explosions allowed!

Can’t buy less?

So here’s one more plug for shoveling our […]

Beep Beep

I bumped (literally) into a problem I’ve seen often lately…people who abandon empty shopping carts in supermarket aisles. Do some moms let kids shop for themselves then put stuff in Mom’s cart and leave theirs to clog an aisle? I even saw a motorized cart left blocking an aisle. Would a disabled user just walk […]
