I am pondering my trip to Maryland shore over the weekend, then big family meeting in Virginia on Monday.

I am pondering why people don't seem to know when something requires the phone and vice/versa. I hate when someone texts when making plans that require some discussion and I also hate when someone calls to ask me a question that could easily be answered by text.



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

You are assuming that others are a smart and courteous as you are. Not so! And they are not as lucky, either.

Yesterday I got the 3 $5 Entemann's coupons in the mail but NO $25 Visa gift card! I asked the blogger about it & she said the Sponsor sent it to me via email. Like I wouldn't know I got a gift card!
So told her no they might have planned to, but they did not. So we'll see how this goes,.

On another good note though, went to Kroger & used all 3 coupons because of a great special they had going on until tuesday. Buy 1 Entemann's boxed product get a free box of the mini cupcakes!!

So I purchased 3 boxes of muffins for free & got 3 free boxes of Cupcakes! They were awesome by the way!

Enjoying a little warmer weather and watching the snow and ice melt.. which still may take a while!

Also .. why is it the one item you really need that was supposed to be here Friday gets delayed until Monday?? Now I have to keep hand washing dishes all weekend!

Happens every time. I ordered something from Amazon today that I really want and threw in a couple of small "add on" items. The add on items are coming tomorrow, the stuff that was my reason for placing the order in the first place is coming on Tuesday, and I don't get the delay because that stuff was Amazon prime.

Yeah that's not right They need to give you both of them for free! I do it all the time.
I'd do what Barbq18 suggested (ask to speak to the manager) next time you have a free coupon.

Jeez, they get refunded for it...morons

I've argued and they say it's their store policy.. found out that the same chain a little to the south would do the coupons and went there.. just ended up being a bit more than an hour to go there. It was the Rite-Aid ( no other store around locally does much for sales ) .. and the regional told me it was up to the store at that time. I seldom shop there anymore.
