    Sometimes an outsider’s point of view can help. Anything you can bounce off us?

    • ITP Lurker says:

      You’re so right, Stacy. I kept myself in self-inflicted mental solitary confinement for decades. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

  2. Thanks, but no. These are mostly physical maladies.

    wine tasting tonight could help

    • True, but I will have to pass. I’m heading over to Betsy’s with the fixings for taco night with her and her dogs.

      Speaking of fixings, at around 11pm last night the Glenwood Kroger turned off half of their lights and shut down all cash registers except for self-checkout; they close at 1am so I couldn’t understand why this happened at 11pm.

      • Steve says:

        Because they only pay a few people to stay until close.

        • Which is a great way to drive off customers.

          I can honestly say that I won’t go there again late night unless it’s for something I absolutely must have soon. And if I am shopping during “normal business hours” I have many shopping options.

          • Stacy says:

            This seriously made you that angry?

          • Yes, because they had a line of customers, about eight people, and I had to wait to check out. Also, I didn’t appreciate them turning off half of the lights, including all cooler cases, two hours before closing as it signaled to me that they didn’t want me there.

          • ITP Lurker says:

            That Kroger makes me angry during “normal” operation. It’s absolutely too massive. They apparently ran out of aisle numbers and had to use letters at the far end of the store. Plus invariably they don’t have want I need, especially in the produce section. I can’t wait for the new Publix to open on Memorial. I presently drive beyond two Krogers in the relative immediate vicinity to get to the Ansley Publix.

            Plus, the back wall of the store is this giant “wall o’ dairy”. But can you find butter here? No, that’s on one of the interior aisles. I spent 20 minutes looking for stupid butter one day. So, triggers abound in that godforesaken place.

          • Steve says:

            Our Kroger managed to piss me off the other week- I was looking for olive oil and was in with the baking section where the other oils were- olive oil? Nope, somewhere completely different.

          • Barb says:

            sometimes I’ve noticed in the freezer section the lights go out until someone walks by – like a motion detector. But- shutting off half the lights for the whole store – NOPE!!! My ghetto Kroger would scare me more than it usually does that way.
            An d each store being set up different gets on my nerves. I wander aimlessly – but I get my steps in…….. right?

  4. Commenting and texting in stop-and-go traffic is tough. At least I always put the phon down while driving. Hahaha, “driving” almost got autocorrected to “drinking”, which is also a good policy.

    • Barb says:

      did you figure out about getting your screen fixed? or are you just going to get a new phone? I need a new phone, just too lazy to get around to getting one.

  5. Steve says:

    The dogs and horses appeared to have survived spending the night without their mother in the house. I only got up 10 minutes earlier and since I let the alarm play a bit, the dogs were up and ready! They did give me the WTF look. I hope they took advantage of the trip outside, because it will be 12 hours without relief if they didn’t.

    I know I have some work to do with my phone usage, as I’m still occasionally checking WAZE or the DOT website, but I’m not texting on surface streets so PUT THE PHONE DOWN! This is the end of the public service announcement. Thank you.


  6. Signing off for the rest of today. Ciao.

    Sorry you’re dealing with physical issues Paulie. That’s frustrating at best.

    I’d get creeped out if they cut the lights out while still open.

    Interesting day driving around south Florida looking at watermelon fields. Real farming on a mammoth scale fascinates me. Wouldn’t want to make my living that way, but seeing how it works is cool.

    • ITP Lurker says:

      REI had some electrical issue last weekend that took half of their lights out, but they cleverly deployed their stash of camping lanterns to mitigate the situation. Kroger creeps me out when the lights are on, so it’s all just a hellhole to me. 🙂
