Post 4052 - Three Days Later

Uh, hello again, my friends.

Sorry I didn't write the last few days. Something came up on Thursday, which required our full attention on Friday, and from which we spent Saturday recovering.

I'll tell you about it sometime. Remind me.

Today was a quiet day, but I did head out for ice cream after dinner. The store by us, which I have told you about before, has quite a bit of stuff in it, but was depleted this evening. And the lady staff member, written about in a now-deleted Facebook post, was on duty this evening. She ended up charging me $44 for not many items, and since my receipt was not itemized, it is her word against mine. I just know that she had to rescan my items a couple of times. I heard the little beep each time, so it makes me think that some items were scanned more than once, but once again, it is her word against mine. I just know that the next time I go into the store, if she is on duty, I will just leave. Life it too short.

That makes two negative retail experiences in just over 24 hours. The first one was after dinner on Friday, when we went to the DQ in Bayer's Lake for ice cream. I waited a few minutes to order the sundaes and paid for them and had to wait for change. And then I joined a long line up of people waiting for their own food. And waited. And waited. We had to be somewhere by 6pm, and it was already 5:45 when I gave up. I gave the receipt to the fellow standing next to me and told him to enjoy the sundaes, and returned to the car, and we drove off to the Friday night thing we had to do. 

We slept in this morning and both took a nap this afternoon. Watched some of those "new" Roku channel shows that were released on the 13th. These are another batch of the shows produced by Quibi last year before that company folded because their business model was ridiculous and absurd. Those shows are seeing the light of day, for free, on the Roku channel. If you have a Roku device, then you have the Roku channel. 

It is past midnight, and I want to turn in. We have a busy few days ahead of us.

See you tomorrow.
