Mama Mia I haven’t wished everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays yet, so have a great one everybody!!! You know, I am kind of getting niffed at the Florida Lottery. They issued the Happy New Year Doubler scratch off tickets, and when I scratch the bonus box, hoping to get a 2019 in the box, which gives you the winning prize below, I get 2015, 2016, or 2017, in the bonus box. Now that is infuriating to me! How dare they do that! Ridiculous….been there, done that……… You have entered an incorrect email address!

They showed a chip and dip bowl on tv news this morning that has an alert if someone takes more than one potato chip, and/ or double dips. To catch those double dippers. Unbelievable that someone would actually monitor someone’s double dipping on the party buffet line, not to mention, that someone would actually patent and manufacture such as stupid consumer product.

I go in there quite frequently, however the only thing is, I usually go there early in the morning, and I am one who does not like to use the self- scan cashier lanes, and so I look for a cashier. So I had quite a few articles, and I didn’t see a cashier, and asked one of their other workers, where are the cashiers. She told me they don’t have any, as they had not arrived yet. It was going on 9 a.m. and I responded by saying, “are you kidding me?” So I went over to the customer service counter, and waited, and waited, and asked another worker, where the cashier there was. She said she would go get her, out of the back. She came and checked out my items, but first asked me, did I have any fruit. She indicated she could check me out, as long as I didn’t have any fruit. I like the little small market, but this is not progress, if they can’t afford to have a person to cashier, when the store is open, which I think is all night long, but I could be mistaken on that, as I don’t go grocery shopping in the middle of the night. I usually buy many items that are marked down, and I have used the self scanners, but have had problems with items marked down, and that is why I don’t care for them. I am old-fashioned, and like to have someone cashier for me. Is that too much to ask now days? December 14, 2018 at 7:39 pm Please enter your comment!

Reply The Anatomy of Fear Reply Reply A few days ago when I was grabbing a few items at the Walmart Neighborhood Market, there on 436 in Apopka, they had a gentleman that was a wine company representative, and he had a booth set up there at the front of the store. He showed me his company’s wine, and he said that they were having a promo to personalize their wine bottle labels to give for gifts. He had what looked like a printer there at the booth, and he said buy the wine, and tell him whatever message you want to put on the label, and he would print and personalize the label, and attach it to their wine bottles. I laughed at him, and said, “if I buy those bottles of wine, it wouldn’t get given to anyone, no matter who they are, as I would keep them, for myself.” He laughed, and said, ” I can do that for you, and personalize it with, ” Merry Christmas to me” on the label. Got to give the guy credit, he is out to sale their product, but I walked on, waved good-bye, as drinking is not the same for me, since taking diabetic meds. Believe me, when I state that. I think it is a very nice idea, but I am not buying booze for anyone. They might get drunk, and use poor thinking, and do something irrational, and I don’t want to be responsible, nor contribute to their substance abuse, if they have that problem. I used to buy booze for my friends, when they got married, and I would give them some stiff spirits, in those beautiful ceramic decanters, they used to have at the liquor stores, but I quit doing that a long time ago. Anyway, I never was very much into wine…..I am more into whine now days…lol December 16, 2018 at 4:15 pm Kelly Rippa’s husband, Jose C., sorry can’t spell his name, but you know who I am posting about….has twitter messaged President Trump, and offered himself for the job of Trump’s chief of staff. He wants to work at the White House for Trump…OMG, let him have it!!!! Also, he referred to Trump, as his “little buddy”….lol, and also went on saying that he was worried about Trump, and that if he hired him, he would put him on a daily workout program, and get him back into shape, as he stated that Trump is beginning to look too much like a Twinkie…..lol. I just don’t see a Twinkie….. maybe an Orange Cream Popsicle…..lol I don’t know where everybody is heading, but the traffic in this city is terrible here lately! Bumper to bumper, all throughout the city, on 441, 436, and in both directions on Park. I had the brilliant idea to tell my husband to pull in the drive thru at BK, because Joey Bo Bo Buttafucco loves their chicken nuggets, and they have them for only a dollar for 10 big pieces. Well, we pulled in the drive thru, as a lady was backing out, and there were about six cars ahead of us, and we waited, and waited, and waited, and my husband said that they are not taking the orders. I said, “well say hello or something into the speaker.” So we waited more time, the line wasn’t moving, and THEN we noticed the very small sign that said the speaker wasn’t working, as it was very dark around the speaker. We had about six cars behind us too. Great…..then I noticed we were driving on fumes, as my husband always drives around with the fuel warning light, when it comes on, instead of going and gassing up. I think it must be a “manhood thing”, as Nancy Pelosi says….lol. I said,” just drive over the curb, and we will be out of here! He said,” no, we don’t have a four wheel drive.” I said,” go ahead, I think it will be okay.” He said,” no, the curb is too high, and besides there is a double curb there”. So I was sweating bullets wondering if we were going to run out of gas in that line, to get a dollar worth of chicken nuggets for our dog….lol. We finally made it out of there, and I said, ” go to that station right there next to BK, and he said, ” no”, and so I said, ” go to the one next to KFC, please! ” Long story short, we made it to the gas station. If I go there ever again to BK, in this heavy traffic, I am parking and going inside to get Joey some nuggets………… Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
