Well, I don't understand why you people always rolling your eyes at me, just because I slide my Visa and its upside down. Sometimes people make mistakes and you people make me nervous with the smacking of your gum at me. I mean, I only come in to buy coffee, body wash, Legos for my 11 yo, super soakers, video games, yogurt, diet Sierra Mist Cranberry, cleaning supplies, pens, pencils, taco crap for Tuesday taco night, steak for steak burritos, etc etc. I give a lot to the store and I don't appreciate having to do everything on my own and to come in line with you people smacking your gum at me and rolling your eyes. I really don't appreciate it!

People DO NOT snatch MY money out of my hand. That will be a "call the po-po, we're gonna rumble" situation:). You are correct on the attitude thing though, I've seen amazing things there. Frankly, I do most of my food shopping at Aldi's.

You know, the thing is employee's, more and more, don't even KNOW what is expected. I've seen employee's sitting under a rack in Belk talking on a cell phone, at Walmart a employee stopped ringing a man up to read HIS newspaper, it's a pulse behind the register.

Another thing I get from your store is my Venus replacement razors for my tanned azz legs. Sometimes my 11 yo likes Pokémon cards, which are 19.99, just like my Venus. I pay good money for my stuff and I don't appreciate, not even a smile, regardless if you are missing a tooth or even a simple Thank you.

Yes, the major stock holders are usually wealthy but these companies are owned by almost every walk of life, the major stock holders just own more shares. The problem I have with the state run media is that they refuse to tell the whole story because it doesn't fit with their class warfare agenda. Yes, their profits for a quarter may have been $24B but after expenses you're left with a profit margin which is usually pennies on the dollar! I think Exxon's actual profit margins were around $2.12 a share, up from $2 a share! Without the tax breaks, subsidies, etc... to offset the monies spent meeting the strict govt regulations, they wouldn't have turned a profit at all and gas prices would rise exponentially to ensure their shareholders a return on their investment, shareholders such as firemen, teachers, and yes, grannies 401. You see, it's not just the rich receiving welfare, it's ALL of the shareholders, including granny's 401 (because her SS was stolen decades ago)! And why was granny's SS stolen? So baby mommas could keep having babies to increase the Commucrats voter base!
