New breakfast items on Steak n Shake menu

http://www.steakns hake.com/feedback. asp The other two links keep getting scrambled when I post them, and I'm not sure why. Anyways, the bigshots at SNS are clearly not reading our posts, so we're better off if we tell them directly instead of just posting them here.  (Jan 25, 2008 | post #131)

New Wal-Mart called key to Lafayette Road future

I used to work at a major grocery store in town, and our Coke, Pepsi, 7up, Edys, and Nabisco reps (There were more, but I don't remember them all) all stocked their own product. That's not counting the merchandising reps who would come around and make sure their products looked pretty on the shelves or the reset crews who would come in and completely rework an entire aisle to put the new products in and take the discontinued products out. It's not free labor, either....the consumer pays for it when they purchase a $4 carton of Edy's ice cream rather than the $2.50 carton of the store brand.  (Jan 21, 2008 | post #139)

Patriots to honor young fan booed in Indy

That's the funniest thing I've ever read in the talkback section, ever. (I'm also a cheesehead, so I am a little biased.)  (Jan 16, 2008 | post #672)

Sales, profits down for Steak n Shake

We had Red Robin once before in Indy and it closed. The new ones (so far) aren't even opening in Indy. One is in Plainfield and the other two are in Carmel . I'd take Fuddruckers over Red Robin any day!  (Jan 14, 2008 | post #84)

Man found fatally shot outside Northeastside strip club

I'm guessing this will be the end of the nightclub?  (Jan 13, 2008 | post #70)

Beds, sofas, chairs and a welcome mat

Exactly! They are building a new one in Cincinnati, I think it opens this spring..that's at least closer than the currently closest Ikea, which is in Schaumburg, IL.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #6)

BMV tells long-time Hoosier to change his name

Things were different before 9/11. When I got my first ID card at 13, I brought my SS card, my birth cert and my school yearbook. My yearbook and my SS card both have my nickname but my birth cert has my full name. No one even noticed. When I got my drivers license, I brought my ID card, and that was all I needed. When I misplaced my license, I brought my school ID (full name), Yearbook (nickname), SS card (nickname), birth cert (full name) and no one even noticed. These days they probably would have had me arrested for identity theft. I once even got the BMV to change my car registration by just telling them my new address...without any proof at all...and then they changed my license, too, because my registration was proof of my new address! Of course, this was at a small town license branch where apparently the terrorists would never look.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #152)

BMV tells long-time Hoosier to change his name

Not true. My SS card was issued in my nickname not my birth name. No one at SS could ever explain why, either.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #149)

BMV tells long-time Hoosier to change his name

I would imagine this is done to prevent people from opening a PO box in a place they don't live so they don't have to pay taxes where they do live. I used to live in a county where there was a wheel tax but my boyfriend lived in a county that did not. Guess where I said I lived? I moved out of state for a while and I had my license changed to the state I was living in. Now that I'm back, the State of Indiana says I have to take a whole new driving test because my drivers license is out of state. Mind you, I was out of state for barely a year. I had never been licensed anywhere except Indiana until now. Apparently they think I've forgotten how to drive in a year. Also, I am one of the people that cannot vote because I do not have a valid Indiana ID, even though I made sure I registered to vote in time for the last election. I did not know about the ID rule until right before election day. I cannot get a valid Indiana ID because my SS card says "Bethy Doe" and my birth certificate says "Elizabeth Doe". My SS card was issued over 20 years ago, when I was a child, and back then I didn't go by my full name anyways. All of my school records (until college) and my school yearbooks all say Bethy instead of Elizabeth. Nevermind that when I first got my license many moons ago, the documents didn't match and no one even noticed. Now they treat me like I'm a criminal. The nearest SS office is an hour away, and that's where I had to drive with my birth certificate (and out of state ID!) to get my name fixed. I had less hassle from the SS office than I did from the BMV. (Actually, I had NO hassle, which rarely happens at the BMV.) Lastly, when I got my first car, they incorrectly typed my name as Elisabeth instead of Elizabeth. The receipt was right but the registration was wrong. I didn't notice until a while later, and then I forgot all about it. When I went to renew my plates the following year, I pointed out the mistake. The clerk told me it would be a $10 fee to retype the letter, even though it was their mistake. Had I pointed it out that day, they would have done it for free, but since I waited so long, they had to charge me. At first I thought she was kidding, and then I realized she wasn't smiling.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #116)

Greenwood picks up shoppers from the westside, too, which is a fact no one mentions. I'm sure it's not as many now that Plainfield has a mall, but when I lived on the westside most everyone went to Greenwood.  (Jan 8, 2008 | post #114)
