Just stopped for gas and food after a week camping / hunting. After filling my tank ($20.55) I walked in to pay. The man behind the counter asked what pump I was on, so I told him I was the one who had 20.55. That didn’t help so I told him the pump had a big sing on it saying I was being taped on video. Still no help, so I told him to go look out side, (I was the only one at the pumps!!!)
After that I went to the big Mc to get something to eat, and had an empty cup handed to me so I could fill my drink. Got some napkins, catsup and a straw. Eat, and cleared my table so they wouldn’t have to be troubled. (Gee I hope I did a good enough job). Well off to the self check out line…. I wish I had more time but it’s off to work, that would be the one that I get paid for. Keep an eye out it's all around us.

I get depressed when i see some kids now and see them trying to jump start cars, fix flats and other need to know things with out a manual. The local gas taion had a kid that didnt belive me when i said i had 60 dollars on pump 4 the pump ahead of me had 20. When i went into pay i stood there 20 minutes argueing then just called the manager that night because I drove off paying for the 20 bucks I was accusd of . I paid the manager the remaining 40 dolalrs and she later fired the attendant.

I stoped for gas,had to read the pump for five mins,before a voice came on a speaker ( kind of startled me, For a minute i thought it was the big guy from above)"you must press the green start button" the voice said. OH- duh where is it?In the left corner, said the voice.Search,search,search(no glasses you know)AH-Ha,found it. Yes it was green and in the left corner about the size of a pea.

Our Walmart has just got the self check out lines. We won't use them, because its taking jobs away from people.

sorta like when the guy at the fast food place asks you to pull up and wait so thay can wait on the folks behind ya, only I don't, I sit right there till mine is ready. Thats why they call it fast food, so ya don't have to wait!
