As much as I try to defend Kroger, they continue to make it harder for me. This morning I popped in a little after 5:15am to pick up an item that I wanted to add to my meal this weekend. While there I amassed about ten items, some of which would save me about $5 and also allow me to use a $2 store coupon. After self-scanning all items, the only checkout option at this time of day, and getting the attendant to scan my paper coupon, I was told that “the system was down” and that I could only pay using cash. I left all the items in place, my $2 coupon is probably null and void, and I walked out of the store empty handed.
Yesterday I heard disappointing news about the future office space for “XYZ Corp”; it sounds as if we’re moving to Buckhead when the midtown lease runs out in February. Buckhead is no bueno for me; an office there doubles the distance and probably triples the time of a commute for me. One of the problems I have had living in Atlanta, especially since I moved south of I-20, is that when companies move they move northward and not southward; the cynic in me believes it’s because the weathly C-level decision makers live northward. If I remain employed by “XYZ Corp” through the time of the move I will have to see what the “remote work” policy is, assuming one will exist, else I may be looking for a new employer next year.
I am nowhere near ready to hit the road today and need to get cracking. I am still keeping my hopes up that my body is willing and able to exercise this weekend. The longer it takes my knee to recover on its own the more concern I have about it.
Possibly no blog tomorrow, we’ll all have to wait and see…
Hope you have a good and healthy day.
