When the second round of the storm hit two 13 year old girls found them selves in the blowing of rain and wind as well as tree limbs. They went to McDonalds for shelter. They were scared and cold. The manager turned them away as the workers inside agrued for them to let these frighten wet girls in. In a panic they ran towards the True Value store close to McDonalds where without hesitation the employees inside pulled them in to safty where they were able to call home for help to get picked up. Thank you True Value for your caring. McDonalds you have just lost some buisness. I tried to talk to the General Manager and was not given his phone number , nor would they give me Corperate number.
look it up on line..ya their are ppl out their that just dont care about others..i work at dollar general we let out customers stay in the store until the rain lets up or the storm passes..thats what brings them back to ur store letting them take shelter until they pass..i will not let the lit kids that are rideing their bike or walk leave until it passes

whatever you think good or bad WOOD8 is the only station that will turn a thunderstorm into an all day program. Do we really need to know about someones bumper that fell off during the storm or the clouds and rain that were in a location a half an hour ago.....they like to hear themselves talk.
WZZM did it too. Nearly two solid hours of the same old, same old.
