On Sunday, Mark and I was finishing up our shopping and standing in line waiting for a checker. Of course, there's I don't know how many cash registers but 6 checkers. Mark will not go through a self-pay line. I don't know why and he won't tell me. Anyway.
After waiting for what seems a very long time, she finally got all our stuff checked out. Since I'm a serious coupon clipper and try to use them for everything, I handed her my stack of coupons. Right off, she started handing me some back. One she said was out of date? bought too many? One not enough? Not large enough? In a package?
I got a little angry at the "in a package". I looked at her, the coupon and told her, " no where on this coupon does it say the product cannot be in a package." She said it was policy. I asked her where it was. Show me. She couldn't. Then I showed her the yogurt one. Too many? The coupon said 6 I had 7. I was shaking mad. I mean. Sometimes, those checkers must think they're way above the customers the way we get treated. She gave me those coupons.
I'm just about ready to quit coupons. The ones we really need - Tide, Downy, you know, daily things. Aren't worth much and the prices are so high it really doesn't matter if one has a coupon.
I could go on and on. But it does seem prices have gone up a lot and it's harder to stay on budget. Anyone else think so or is it just me?
But by the time we left that store, I had a bad headache. Mark said it was only because I wanted to punch that checker and all the restraint I used caused the pain. I laughed. I didn't want to punch her. LOL! Just shove coupons in her face...
I'm Karen and happy to welcome you to WebMD's fm group.
I'm sorry about you losing your job. It's bad enough to have several problems, but add to the list a loss of employment! More stress!
A lot of people have problems with concentration and short term memory. And, there's a lot of suggestions on how to maintain your brain stuff. Myself, I work a lot of crosswords, read and try to pay attention to as much detail as I can. I'm on enough drugs as it is and don't want to put anymore in my body.
Take care of yourself. Rest when possible. Try not to stress( easier said than done), laugh as much as you can, and good luck with your insurance.
Yes I do. And that's why all the docs say I'm holding my own now. It's been an uphill battle as you know but it's okay.
My drugs: * Neurotin now Gabapentin 2400mgs. a day * Topamax 100 mgs. daily * Effexor 300 mgs. daily * Nuvigil 20 mgs. daily * Xanaflex 20 mgs. * Hydrocort 30 mg. daily * Hydrocodone .05 every 6 hrs. but I take one a day.
There's more, but I don't feel the need to take a sleeping aid or an extra anti-depressant.
For a while I didn't think they helped, but it's been a trial and error sort of thing. I guess they work.
Yes, it was a good weekend. I'm thankful it's finally starting to cool down a bit. At least it's now in the upper 80's instead of upper 90's.
My grandson, Johnny is small. But he weighed 3.9 lbs when he was born. He now weighs 25 lbs and is 36" tall. What a guy. My grand-daughter, Randa, is 8 mos. old - weighs 18 lbs. and is almost 24" long. Her mama is tall though, about 5'10 so she'll probably take after her.
