While my wife was looking through the big craft store today, I went over to Rural King to pick up a couple things I needed. While there, I was viciously attacked by a BAD case of the back-house two-step. While in the process of dealing with that problem, the missus called and said that she was ready for me to pick her up at the craft shop. I explained my situation and told her I'd try to hurry.
When I finished the required paperwork, I took my buggy to the check out. There was only one register open, but there were only a couple people there, so I waited. THEN, the card machine had some kind of problem processing their credit card. A couple minutes later, the problem seemed no closer to being solved, so I left my buggy, with it's three items, and headed off to pick up my wife.
No doubt, the manager though that he/she was saving money by only having one register open, but they lost a $30 sale on account of it. I've seen a lot of other folks over the years do the same thing, so you KNOW they aren't REALLY saving money by being such tightwads. I'm sure their workers get only minimum wage. Oh well, there's another store that I'm near more often anyway; I guess I'll spend my money THERE. © 2017
