I just love this! Being not so fond of cats myself, and thinking much more highly of dogs, I find this rings so comically true!

Hi Hatti and Everyone!

Aw gee, I got a late start on the morning and I've been rushing ever since. I had breakfast 20 minutes ago and now I'd better have some lunch while I've got the chance!

Have a wonderful day, Everyone! I'll see you later!

In today's mail I got a sheet of coupons from one of my favorite fast food places, Subway. Six of the coupons were Buy-One-Get-One-Free deals. How Dog! The last two were $5 Dollar-Meal-Deals. Hot Diggidy Dog!

So I made a dash to the closest Subway for my supper. I ordered the 6-inch Roast Beef and had them load it with everything but the hot peppers, chose my chips and got the cup to fill with Coke.

When I got to the lady at the cash register, she looked at my coupon, hit the keys, and looked at my coupon. And looked at the keys. And looked at my coupon. Then she told me that this was the regular, every day price for that meal deal. Every day. She kinda grunted and said confidentially to me, "This isn't any special deal. This meal cost $5 every day."

So I ask y'all.....do you think Subway is doing anything unethical? My cynical mind thinks Aha, this makes customers think they are getting a deal so they rush in droves, and Subway has extra sales and makes a huge profit. Never mind that I would have paid the $5 anyway. I am left to wonder if I would have chosen Subway or some other fast food for my supper.

It's a crooked world, my friends!

Ummmm .... Mrs Cough was making a grocery list last week & she noted the Chili that I liked was in the stores ad. The price given in the ad - was the "regular price" it always is - but, people think - that if it's in the store's ad - it must be on sale - wrong.

When I was younger I worked in a Grocery Store and every Monday morning I'd stock the aisle end caps, with excess merchandise they had on hand - then I'd make some cute little signs advertising it's price that week - it's "regular" everyday price - and that stuff would just fly off the shelves because people thought it was a special deal and as a result the store would have much less backstock of that particular item to deal with.

So to answer your question Dickens - was Subway unethical? No, not really - tricky perhaps - but stuff like that has been going on since forever - but I understand your frustration & I'm sorry that happened to you!

10:30 am - Got rubbed and petted! My favorite thing!

12:00 pm - Lunch! My favorite thing!

3:00 pm - Wagged my tail! My favorite thing!

5:00 pm - Milk bones! My favorite thing!

7:00 pm - Got to play ball! My favorite thing!

8:00 pm - Wow! Watched TV with the people! My favorite thing!

11:00 pm - Sleeping on the bed! My favorite thing!



Excerpts from a Cat's Daily Diary:

Day 683 of my captivity:

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the floor.
Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am. The audacity!

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.
Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow - but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded! The bird has got to be an informant. I observe him communicating with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe .... for now.

Good morning, Hatti and Friends!

Isn't this sunshine gorgeous! I hope everyone has lots of sun and fun times in their weekend forecast!

Ricky, that is so funny! I shared yesterday's post with two friends by email....they are both cat lovers and got a good laugh from it. I'm going to copy-n-paste this one for them too.

That part about the cat weaving in and out of people's feet as they walked.....I think that might be my number one complaint against cats! I get frustrated trying to feed my son's cat. The little black idiot will be so hungry but I have to fight her to get to her bowl.
