I have GOT to get these strawberries IN !!!
If they’re doing this now over bags of mulch, what’s going to happen when it’s the last can of beans or box of mac ‘n cheese?
Just put my sweet corn in the ground!
I manage a Garden Center. Our horrific, sub-zero cold, snowy and never-ending winter into spring is going to compress my ‘season’ into about 8 weeks, versus 12.
It could get ugly, LOL!
The Amish gangs will be invading any day now to grab up all the best tomato plants! Are you allowed to pack some heat while at work?
I also remember that ALL the African-American students were on the "free lunch" line. Not ONE of them paid.
That was my first real live view of fraudulent welfare scams. Some of those kids had more money in their pockets than I did.
How do you turn this into a race issue?
I won't do it again.
Easy. Just go with the odds.
Please explain to me how this retail rage was motivated by race.
Surprised it does not happen more often.
Years ago I was working an electronics counter when a guy tried to return something. He had no receipt or it was out of warranty or something, so I could not take it. He started yelling and screaming and called me a “Blippty-bleeping, bleep bleep bleeping bleeping little geek”.
Something snapped, and I was halfway over the counter with the full intent of throttling his throat before two alert co-workers grabbed me by each arm and pulled me back to earth.
Who said it was caused by race?
I don't think you can even classify this as retail rage, it wasn't over product, it was over someone cutting in line. I think it should be classified as stupidity rage, and against a senior citizen for Christ's sake.
I hope that doesn’t mean what the Urban dictionary says it does.
