Somebody stop me...

Next time I decide to go to Albertson's to buy a few groceries on sale...PLEASE STOP ME!! I need only to go there for baby food. I do NOT need anything that is on sale because it will NOT ring up on sale & I WILL end up at the service counter in yet another line to get a refund!!! This has not happened just once, not even twice, but EVERY time I Go to ALbertson's. They can NOT get stuff in their computer and the cashier never has a clue even if I point it out....it is not even ridiculous...the local Albertson's is a JOKE! This trip I wanted some apples...they were 25 cents a piece but I was charged 99 cents a pound totaling $3.96. I truck on up to the service desk & explain the problem. She says, "You bought apples." I respond, "Yes, & they are priced wrong." She looks at me & then walks off towards produce...I guess I must look like I want to rip them off for their apples. She finally came back & said, "You were right." I politely informed her that I have had a lot of trouble with prices being wrong...she responds with, "yea, it happens a lot." THEN FIX IT!!!!!! Sorry....I am a little irritated....

And can I also give props to the Dallas School District for remaining open today & risking the lives of thousands of children & teachers. We applaud you for not closing your doors...we realize that education is much more important than SAFETY!!!! As if you don't already ask your teachers to do too much, you have now asked them to risk their lives for "TEKS preperation." Yes, a representative of DISD called into a news station & told them that they felt that buses could run safely, that electricty would remain on & that the TEKS test is coming up so they need to prepare for it. WHAT WERE YOU GUYS THINKING?!?!?!? All you did was cost a lot of teachers a personal leave day, paid for a lot of subs, & cost hundreds of kids perfect attendance because they thought being safe was the better choice. Way to go guys!!

I am done now...obviously the weather has made me a tad...irritable....:)

I hope everyone survives the ice!!!

Our school closed for the first time in like ten years, but only because the neighboring schools did!
