Training to help with shoppers' experience

OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHH give me a FREGGIN break..... I grew up in the customer relations industry... We are as heck did NOT have government officials telling us HOW TO TREAT our customers... Are you kidding me.... We are wasting hard earned tax dollars on B S like this... Thos of you with discrimination problems need to get the F over yourself.... I mean I saw the other day a business sign that said "Latinos Salon"..... As an anglo, if I posted such a damn sign I would be picketed, sued, etc.... All on some small minded individuals PERCEPTION of the situation.... Grow up, teach your children how to be accepting, and realize IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT YOU.... Honestly it has NOTHING to do with you.... Until everyone stops with the discrimination crap... and realize we all bleed the same.... it is no wonder humans are constantly at war.... "I am better tha you because........... .."... "You don't like me because........... ." LOL... now you all sound like the "terrorists " my son is supposedly defending this country against....  (Nov 5, 2010 | post #5)

Dogs put on show at county fair

So.. One reporter and one photographer makes it to the fair... writes ONE story and everyone is all happy and joyful.... I am part of a local non-profit group... I was out and about in my "costume " and was approached by these 2 elite people... Once I explained who I was with they lost all interest... I mean it was like "oh ok" we need to move on.... There are probably 2 dozen activities at the fair daily and they choose to cover one and everyone applauds them... Yeah whatever.... Suckie @$$ newspaper with lazy reporters...  (Aug 11, 2010 | post #7)

Goodbye Bluffs, hello Hooters

Seems to me just another wasteful chain... attempting to upgrade a town that actually prefers low priced decent meals.... and let's not even discuss service.... because short of the "mom & pop" places the service in most (98%) of the local restaurants SUCK.... Down to and including the "olive Garden".... Went there on friday night.... Sat at the bar... had to listen to a whiney snot nosed rich "B" complain whine etc about how she was not making any tips.. Then went on to complain that bartenders "should" get a cut of wait staff tips ... EXCUSE ME... since when on this planet did bartenders get a "cut" of wait staff tips... I don't know about you... I WILL NOT GO BACK PERIOD.... This little whiney girl needs to be canned... and learn the hard way... you want a tip YOU EARN it, it is not given to you freely..... I tipped her alright... I left a penny tails up on the bar.... If you are old enough to know what that means, then you will know why I did it....and it will explain all... SSSSOOOOOO another BIG chain... OVER PRICED LOUSEY food.... and sucky service to match..... I have been in a number of Hooters from Las Vegas NV to Alb. to SLC.... and for the most part they suck... Though I will say the one in Alb wasn't half bad... The one in Loveland Co had the worst service... but then again F-Town didn't have one yet... SSSOOO I am sure that is about to change.... GIVE US A RED ROBIN...... something decent to compete with FudRaKERS,,,,,,,  (Jun 22, 2010 | post #62)

Teen makes birthday donation to animal shelter

elkhntr7... you are an....... It is not the animals fault that humans are total waste of space... I have had ONE particular "stray" dog picked up from my home 3 separate times... Do you realize the COUNTY failed to fine the "owner" and thus the dog continued to be a problem.... This PROBLEM is way bigger then your small little mind can seem to handle.... Honestly IF the county actually forced the FINES they "say" they are suppose to force on "stray" pets... This shelter would have already been built.... Last I knew the fines alone on this ONE particular dog was in excess of $3K.... but do you think the loser owner ever paid a dime of that.... As for Brynn.... You go girl.... If more of today's youth was less selfish and more community oriented, I am sure this community would not have all the problems and issues it has.... I hope you have truly started the ball rolling... If nothing else when you go back to school, maybe you can talk to your student counsel about leading a fund raiser.... Thanks for your wonderful help and awesome community pride....  (Jun 12, 2010 | post #6)

wwwwwwwwwhhhhhhhhh hheeeeeeeeeeeewwww wwwwwwww Now that I have caught up with everything.... More Coffee.... give your daughter a belated congrats hug from me... She just goes to prove you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.... Also give yourself a hug for showing and creating another generation to learn that very lesson.... Only you may determine where you will go in this life.... Just_Nobody..... Happy dancing can actually lighten the spirit as well and the body.... Although normally done in a celebration of another as yours was, it is also a celebration of our own abilities... The mere fact you were able to do a happy dance despite the pain, shows your ability and willingness for life is still very strong within your soul..... Happy.... My psych used to "prescribe " 15 minutes a day outside in a comfy chair with your back against your house... The reason for that is if you can't "see" your problems (whats causing issues) for 15 minutes, it helps you to "see" them in a new light when you return to them refreshed from your "break". ... I have done this many a time over the years; come to find out He was right.... To take a cup of coffee, sit in a comfy rocker and stare off into flower bed wonder, is totally refreshing... Mother nature is such a wonderful spiritual healer if you allow her... Whammer Jammer...... It is truly ironic you brought up the BBQ idea.... LT, my father, and I were just discussing having another "group" BBQ sometime in early July.... We have WAAAAAAAAAAAY toooo much going on in June to plan one for it... Hill Billy..... My brother (a driver for M&R) was talking about a whole new group of wells to be kicked open on Middle Mesa... Is this start up going to affect you... and if so I hope it does so in a positive way.... As this is Memorial Day weekend.... Thank You to all of our vets, living and not so living who have fought for our freedoms....  (May 30, 2010 | post #2925)

Hey all.... Flying through to check in.... Was reading a news article and realized I hadn't check in here in a while... Whammer Jammer..... Your wallet RAK is just awesome.... Hill Billy.... You reminded me I need to stake a bleeding heart before it totally falls to the ground... Just_Nobody.... Glad to hear you are doing better... Positive Friendship is the best medicine a person can find... Coffee & Firefly... Glad to see you guys around.... As for an update around here... LT started a new job yesterday.. Ironically he was late.. He didn't set his alarm clock.... LOL.... Faxed off his VA paperwork, now the hurry up and wait game begins with the VA.... keeping fingers crossed as he wont get INS on his new job for at least 90 days.... My father is still in the hospital.. Going through round 3 of chemo for hairy cell leukemia.... Once he gets out, he will be living with LT and I.... As for me, had a DR appt. yesterday... Just as I figured my arthritis is spreading into other joints.... Yeah... however after I explained my dad was in hospital with leukemia, they decided to do a complete blood work up to make sure it isn't something more.... We discovered a place called Manning Greenhouses in Kirtland.... OMFG is it a great place..... plants plants and more plants.... I lovies the place.... Hope everyone is having a wonderful week and enjoying the sun shine & no wind....  (May 26, 2010 | post #2897)

Court Case Update.... Status hearing today went as figured..... We have 1/2 day court hearing on July 15.... Judge Townsend ordered Trailer Village Office clerk to inform Owner he MUST have attorney of record prior to that date....

So they are at a lost as to what the problem is now... It appears LT will start a new job on monday.... He was offered a pay raise and other benefits.... Hopefully he will enjoy this one as much as he did the last one before they got a case of the.......  (May 18, 2010 | post #2851)

WOW.... What a weather change.... My L.T. is from the NJ / PA state line area.... and he won't go back for nothing.... Says he will go to Texas first.... LOL Yep he has been there as well, Ft Hood.... We have had to replant a portion of our garden, lost in this last freeze.... This year has truly been a weird weather year for sure... I also agree with Hillbilly on the winds.... up where we are it seems like it won't quit and when they gust, we watch out the window to see what we need to run out and catch....  (May 18, 2010 | post #2848)
