If she was writing a check, which she waited till after everything was totaled up to begin looking for in her gym bag sized purse, then had to borrow a pen to fill out, then couldn't find her drivers license, then remembered this 5 cent off coupon she intended to use........

/then I feel she got off "lightly"
//seriously folks its the 21st century why the fark do you still carry a checkbook with you?

Will that be cash or

Woo-hoo. I didn't even know about this happening right here in my own city town village. Of course, it happened on the bad side of Houma, so no person of actual consequence was injured or otherwise bothered.

I...kind of want to go to that Rouse's tomorrow and see the foot-wide blackened tile where God gave her a warning shot.

I first thought of the manna story in the OT. But I also thought of the parable Jesus tells in Luke 12 about the rich fool in the land of plenty that built storehouses for his crop so that he could relax, eat, drink and be merry as he stored up enough for years and years. The last part of that parable describes his actions as storing up treasures on earth and being poor towards God. Is storing toilet paper under our children's beds and turning spare bathrooms into pantries our modern day equivalent?

How many people they could bless with the skills God has given them.  Sad, really.

Someone check security video for the person behind her. At thrift stores there's a phenomenon I call "shopping at the counter" that would result in a string of blackened floor tiles had I the power to summon lightning.

I am definitely needing to go to bed because after seeing the picture of whoever that is I wondered if God would look more like an Orthodox Jew. Since Gods chosen people are the Jews and he made them/humanity in his image. And i defaulted to the image of an Orthodox/Hasidic Jew. The Heavenly cloud sitting dude is a remant of Zeus/Jupiter. Then I realized how stupid that was. It makes no sense but I'm posting this so y'all can have a laugh, assuming it is even funny.

I'm going to bed now.

What is shopping at the counter?

Sounds like the wiring in that place was tampered with, probably by hobos or the like. They often do this, they get the electricity cables all seduced with some stanky wine and then dick-fark them into submission. Once the cables are under the spell the hobos re-route them so the electrical magic powers manifest in all the wrong places, in this case right up someone's shiatter while they're shopping. I can guarantee that as soon as she took the zaps to the ass there were hobos spilling out of every corner grabbing her shoes and other stuff, leering anarchic hobos with their crazy clouds of head dander all grabbing stuff and laughing like imps.
That's why I only shop online now, I've seen it happen.

What if the hobos find a way to zap you through the monitor?

"Shopping at the counter" is when someone with a shopping cart full of stuff is at the one cashier and they're picking through each item, deciding what they want and don't want. You know, what they should have done among the racks. I'm a pro-shopper, I'll do six-eight thrifts in a day and I'll have someone shopping at the counter at least a few times a week. And I've taken to berating the ones that speak enough english to understand.

And then on the way home they stop at a drive through where they don't know what they want, every item they order has to be questioned and customized, and at least two things will need to be canceled in favor of something else.

If you don't know what you want then park and go inside and don't stand at the front of the line doing this either.

wait, she got struck by lightning INSIDE the store?

are we sure they didnt just TELL her that after they got sick of her screaming kids and hit her over the head?

Because you can write a check even though your paycheck company doesn't direct deposit til that midnight. That's one reason, I guess. I carry em around, but I do use them when that scenario arises.

Because checks are a signed legal document and have different rights and responsibilities than other forms of payment?

Or you're behind them and their EBT card is out of money or they can't remember the PIN and when the cashier suggests they move aside to let someone else go through while they sort things out, they get all mad and start screaming at the cashier and sometimes the cops have to come.

What a revolting development but at least it had a positive ending. It's good to hear that she's currently doing ok. I'll bet that was a huge shock. One doesn't expect to get struck by lightning while they're conducting their grocery shopping.

What podunk store do you shop at? I have not seen a store actually take the physical check in years, around here they take the blank check, feed it into the machine which prints the totals on it, scans it, and displays how much will be electronically deducted from your account on the pin pad. Then the checker shows you the check, asks you to hit ok on the pin pad, and hands you back the check. Nobody writes a check anymore.

DNRTFA, just going to use this to complain about extreme couponing:

Paying $5 for a cart full of stuff would be awesome, except it's often the most gawd-awful products imaginable.  What am I going to do with 20 cans of cheeze whiz and 30 bottles of low-end shampoo?

Donate it to the poor to show them how much they're hated or sell it to people gullible enough to think it's a bargain or send it to the troops to show much you hatesupport them,
