And the Christmas music that starts the day after Halloween. The shop-lifters. The store credit card pitches. The coupons (we do/don't take expired coupons, we don't honor competitor's coupons). And around here, the dogs that "shop" with their owners. Dog fight in aisle three!

Kindness and patience is most helpful for everyone. It we can't get out faster, we might as well enjoy each other's company while we wait.

This is why Amazon is eating everybody's lunch.

It is amazing that the global pizza company I work part time for does not check with the drivers before setting pricing policy.

Hard to explain to some people.

For most stores that ask my zip code I say 63121. One of the poorest zip codes in the St. Louis Area. That information is used to decide where stores should open. Wellston needs businesses.

For emails most places get spam@uce.gov. The address to report spam to.

The people in charge never consult the people who work, Alan, and it leads to some really stupid decisions. Nice of you to use the Wellson Zip. I'll have to remember spam@uce.gov

I HATED working retail because of all those stupid things (of course that was before email and all those 'extras" loyalty clubs and the like. We had to look up credit card numbers in paper booklets to see if they were ok. Or call the cc company and hold forever. Of course some IS the clerks fault -- chatting on cell phone and ignoring customers has become more common these days. I did get into an argument at Walmart once over that. Ugh. Shopping is a horrid experience - no wonder people shop online more and more

Elaine Viets

At least I didn't have to look up deadbeat credit cards, Terri. The computers do that. But what also slows down the line is people looking up coupons on their cell phones -- their very slow cell phones.
