emersonbiggins: Buffet: What the Fark is HEB??

2nd best grocery store on the planet (hat tip to Wegman's)


A friend went to Piggly Wiggly and gave them a check made to Hoggly Woggly. It went thru, no problem.

I don't think Piggly Wiggly is still around.

MrEricSir: I once dropped my wallet on a busy street in San Francisco and -- no joke -- it was still there when I walked back and nothing had been removed.

I was once walking on a busy street in San Francisco and found a wallet lying in the streets. I picked it up and looked in it but there wasn't anything in it except for receipts for Astro Lube and pictures of this strange looking guy getting pegged by goats, so I put it back where I found it.

Spad31: These are the O voters. The lot of them. Bank on it.


Such astute political analysis, based on such little information.

I suggest you contact Breitbart/TheBlaze/DailyCaller/AmericanThinker/WND. They could use an erudite mind like yours.

Looking at national and swing-state polls, it is reasonable to assume that most of the people you see, speak to, work with, know, and read about are, in fact, voting for Obama. Bank on that.

Yep. Explains much, doesn't it?


Obviously democracy has failed and a dictatorship is in order, ja?

Testiclaw: PacManDreaming: I always have wallets that have chains on them and I keep them firmly attached to my belt.

Same here!


Me too! Fastened to my super-baggy orange camo pants while wearing my Reel Big Fish t-shirt.

PacManDreaming: I don't care what people think or say, I always have wallets that have chains on them and I keep them firmly attached to my belt. It's one less thing that I have to worry about losing.


Let me guess, you also have a whole bunch of keys dangling from your belt too. You use 2 or 3 of those keys regularly, the rest are there to make you feel important.

/never lost my wallet
//never worry about it

PoochUMD: So an employee stole $15 dollars from her wallet before throwing it away. The store gave her $70 as compensation. Who knows what happened to the ID, just go get a new one.


Yeah, right. Thanks to voter I.D. laws you can't get a new license unless you complete an absentee ballot, casting a straight-ticket Republican vote, in the presence of party officials who will then authorize a new I.D. to be issued.

Jesus reassured her that her wallet was "in a safe place."

Well, that's certainly comforting.

It's only mentioned that one time anywhere in the article. There is no explanation for who the fark "Hair Balls" is.

AssAsInAssassin: wildcardjack: Hey lady, these are YOUR STUDENTS.

You've taught them to press buttons but they've never been judged on their ability to think.

You can tell all that? You must be very special.


You're right. I'd blame the legislators who passed No Child Left Behind before I'd ever blame a teacher.

EatHam: ZAZ: We aren't in the 1950s where your record is in a cabinet indexed by number. The computers can keep track of all the numbers given to one person.

Yeah, probably still using 1950s technology for that.


The problem is that they're still using 1950's employees for that.

Jesus didn't help her and now she's with H-E-B.

I drove up to Monreal from Vermont to deliver a credit card a customer left behind at the store I was working at.
He wasn't expecting me and didn't know he had left it behind.
They always stopped in our store after that.
