Georgesville. I don't typically go that way. Since that was over 2 years ago, I reckon I was down that way because of the way Hilliard-Rome was torn up or I was coming back from Lancaster--spent a good amount of time down there before my mom died.
Makes sense. The skinny was probably from up the road at Wedgewood or Shannon Way.

Right. Because you put out BS.
Like knowing when the Constitution was ratified? That kind of BS?

I wouldn't call exposing your idiocy as BS. I can understand why you would think so, however.

I'm really pretty tolerant of a lot of things. But when you walk into Walmart at night needing to pick up a few things, it gets really humorous when the clerk is Somali and the customer is redneck out of West Jeff. Redneck, there with wife and kids, wife has tube top and Daisy Dukes painted on a 250-pound 5'1" body, putting things like doe estrus on the conveyor belt and the clerk asks what it is and reals back in horror, while the wife wonders aloud how in the world can a woman be so stupid as to dress that way. I actually did witness an event like this a couple years ago in fall. Hilarious.
Sometimes the juxtaposition of things slays me. Unlike Bobby, I keep my mouth shut and just laugh.
Why anyone goes to Walmart at any time is beyond me.

Last time I was there was about the the last time I was in a mall (at Tuttle). Roughly ten years ago. I've still never set foot in Polaris.

Oh, the pictures my friends email me of the 'Walmartians' are unbelievable. Yeah, these petite beauties, some of them, pop that first baby and gain 100 lbs. That they never lose. But they dress the same. And have another baby and gain more. And buy smaller clothes. I've never figured out why someone doesn't tell them.

I speak to everyone I come in eye contact with. Always have. It throws some people, but I get mostly "hellos" back.

Cheap pet supplies, the occasional cheap household gadget that you need once or twice.

That's about it. Not a place I frequent usually. It's usually more of a bother than it is anything else.

Well, it's more than the entertainment value. Until 2008 I never went in there except to get printer toner and straight out the door.
Then Walgreens took over my prescriptions. They always had them screwed up royally. I finally pulled them telling them 'I've given you guys 3 months to get it together.' Went to Rite Aid and paid an arm and leg for meds and they still never had it right.

Took them down to Walmarts Pharm per my doc, and whoa! Fast, accurate and cheaper than you can imagine. I was pleased and wrote corporate to tell them.

Then I'd look around and stuff I was paying $8. for was $5. in there. WTF? How long has this been going on? I mean, Colgate toothpaste is Colgate toothpaste. Right? And they have a decent craft dept.

I still don't grocery shop there, but when I'm picking up a script, I pick up a few other things, name brands.

And the clerks in the electronics department are very knowledgable and I technology challenged. But I'll never move my prescriptions from there now. Too fast, easy and cheap to go anyplace else. Even if they are tax deductible.

I suspect they wouldn't get it even if someone smacked them over the head with a 2X4. Besides, gives us something to chuckle at.

I'm typically pretty friendly with clerks, waiters/waitresses, gas station clerks, etc. Always have to make sure I talk to the staff at The Olive Tree when I eat there--fantastic people, great restaurant. Have other places like that as well. Get infinitely better service when you get to know the people involved in the business. Most Ohioans are generally nice, despite the bellyaching you'll hear on Topix. If I get rude service or service with an attitude, no tip or I just don't return.

Pick up some Curel lotion. Been around for decades and I found out Tuesday it's the best moisturizer you can use anywhere on your body, including your face. A surgeon enlightened me.

gokeefe, be careful. I was giving my 'girls' those chicken strip pet treats and they got liver damage from them. Make sure they are not made in China. Cost me a fortune in vet bills but they are fine.

It and K-Mart are the only place I can find bo-bo sneakers anymore.

Having been born, raised and educated in New England, I can say that Ohioans west of Zanesville and south of Mansfield are very courteous and decent.

Wow. I'm forced to use Express Scripts.

I used to fill my scripts at Giant Eagle. Loved it, never had a problem. Then got told all maintenance scripts had to be filled via mail order or else by my health care company.

Talk about a waste. They generate a mountain of paper, never get the script right--always have to call the doctor to get after them, and they always have basic things on "backorder"--like my Synthroid. And I can't pre-order early to beat waiting for it. So occasionally, I run the risk of having to go without my Synthroid for a few days.

I'll take Walmart's service over that any day. Unfortunately, I'm stuck. I even tried playing a game once with Express Scripts--I can refill my Synthroid through them every 90 days. So I waited 91 days once and asked the doc to call it into Giant Eagle so I can pick it up. The co-pay listed was the same. I picked it up and a few days later, got a flame letter in the mail reminded me that I was wasting money. Letter sent required double postage because it was sent in a large envelope with a packet of brochures. LOL, dufuses. What money got saved?

The pet food I buy is the bagged stuff for senior cats, specific brand. Prevents hairballs, or supposedly does LOL. Brand recommended by the vet cause I got tired of stepping on the yuck. It's just a couple bucks cheaper at Walmart.

Ever try Alpha Keri? Works really well, too. Have been using that since I was a kid. Have eczema that flares up this time of year. With this winter, wanted to crawl out of my skin a few times! Will check out the Curel.

Me too. My husband and I stopped going to one restaurant, our favorite, when 'our' waiter left. Just wasn't the same.
I like traveling alone because people are so nice to you. And it's quieter.
People are pretty nice around here. I only am in the city to work, but you see the same people all the time on the streets, etc. Actually, our office is a little outside of Wilmington proper.
Where I live, mostly everyone has known eachother for three generations,(even the black families, WA)so they are at a distance, but there when you need them and respectful and warm when you run into eachother at the P.O.
I thought it was pretty diverse, but when I hear you guys talk about all the Samalia's (sp?) etc., I guess not.
I've been back in the country now a little over 10 years. But I was never lived than 20 minutes away.

Crap. You can order at Walmarts online. And you can get home delivery. Our insuracne will only let us get a one month supply, but that's O.K. I picked up two 30 day prescriptions last week, and Niaspan is expensive, and it was $18.83. I have osme that a $6. a month. Not that I am on 20 scripts.

Oh do I leverage that traveling alone thing!! Being single for as long as I have, that is the ONE thing I have come to appreciate. Boutique hotels in Chicago, magnificent treatment (and I suppose a nice tip doesn't hurt), loved being in Big Sur this past summer--stayed in a great place along Asilomar where they pampered the stuffings out of me, and even on the occasional times I eat out alone it's amazing the great service you can get if you're open to it and don't play the crazy tightwad old lady routine.

And folks wonder why I have steadfastly remained single! It's about me, but don't tell Glitter.

I finally got up to Polaris a few months ago. Was not impressed, but one thing cracked me up. Saks is directly across from Sears. Imagine someone who has the competency and panache to work at Saks, and every time they leave by the mall entrance has Sears staring them in the face. LMAO!

I don't mind Tuttle but I only go about three times a year.

I have no use for Walmart.

Watch out. I know. I was there where you are 8 years ago. No intention of getting married ever and no reason to. Same movie star handsome boyfriend for 6 years, and he had his own business and house. We got along great and had great times.
Career going great and not apt to falter.
Then one night my husband came out of left field when I was not looking and 18 months later we got married.
Shocked everyone, including me. It's been good. He's gotten through his head I am independent minded, I like his kids. They live in another state, yes!
I still do take off on my own every so often. What I don't like, is being tied down to the dogs.

One thing I really give my husband kudos for is that he raised his 3 boys, by himself, from ages 6 months, 2 years and 4 years. I don't know how he did it. But they're all good, hard workers and all different.

We boring you boys yet?

I haven't, but tell me about the exzema. My husband's 3, almost 4, granddaughter gets it. Scratching her butt all the time. Her mother uses Personal Care Moisturizer w/oatmeal. No bubble bath in the winter. Soon as the sun's out and it warms up, she's fine. But I will pick up some Alpha Keri.

I've just neglected my skin. Best thing for me was when I took 6 1000 mg capsules of Evening of Primerose Oil everyday. Never used body lotion and had skin like smooooth. Flax Seed Oil capsules will do the same thing. And they have some anti-cancer quality according to my boss.
