If I came to the Meijer where you work, and didn't put my cart away, would you get mad at me?

Aha, that makes me smile. ;) I am proud of you for your kindness towards Target.

However, I'm not proud of you for misspelling "Meijer". It's not "Myers". :x

Popularity is in the eye of the beholder... or something like that. I don't see myself as being "popular" or anything. I've learned how to just be myself, and if people think of me as being popular, sweet! :P Also, I learned from the best posters ever; Top, JIA, Catspaw, and others.

No; you'd be like most of the customers that come into our store. ;)

Alas, it has been four days since you asked that question, and I can't remember what "tonight's activities in this forum" were...?

I was stalking Lee on the web and was able to locate her. :- But that's okay, after I posted the question I got a pm from Lee with a definite 'yes'. ;)

So this isn't really a question as much as a statement. But I went to Meijer (note correct spelling) today and there were a bunch of cart people (I'm not sure what they are officially called), standing around TALKING! I am sure you never participate in such slacking.

Obviously, I am a poor gauge of popularity, but you do possess an aura of coolness. ;)

Pretend to be a rich man, play volleyball and football with friends, work with little kiddos, watch sports and movies. \:D/

Those poor cart pushers have been working outside for hours, and when they pause for a moment to strategize how to best collect carts, you have the audacity to call them slackers? :noway: Occasionally I will stop for a moment to talk to a co-worker, but I never slack off.

The official term for my job is "Utility worker", because we do much more than collect carts.

Ah that would be why I also saw them changing trash bags.

You take breaks? Well see if I ever come to your store! :x

We have breaks and lunches. Breaks are 15 minutes, and we get paid for those; lunches are 30 minutes+ and we don't get paid for that time. You only get a lunch if you work more than 5 hours.

Yet you spend half your work day on break? ;)

There is a slight possibility that I was kidding. ;)

If AE uses the :x smiley, he is 99% of the time kidding.

This is a trap question. :noway:

There's no right answer. If I say she's great, you'll chime some wedding bells. If I say she stinks, you'll call me an unfeeling beast. :(
