My lowe's rebate nightmare

I got my rebate checks (4) in the mail from Lowe's. I took them to the bank today. The teller started to process them and then looked at me and asked me for my drivers license. She excused herself and went to the back to get a bank official. They came back and asked me where did I get these checks etc. They came in 4 seperate envelops. They are my Lowe's paint rebates. After playing 20 questions the official says, were sorry we can...not cash these checks.  Why? because they are all duplicate checks. Tell us where did you got these checks.  They acted like I was printing these checks in my basement.  I just stood there with my mouth open looking like a wide mouth bass. I finally said, I don't know what to tell you. I've got nothing. They handed me back my fake rebate checks and I left. I called Lowe's and was told it was a system error. Will Lowe's issue me a another rebate check that is not a duplicate? NO why? Because the checks were good it is not their fault that the bank refused to cash them. WHAT.... But I am still out my full rebate. All I can say it watch your rebates so you don't get ripped off like I did.

Silly old Lady and her Corvette

Silly old lady….on my walk tonight I passed a house with a Corvette in the carport. The Corvette was covered by a car tarp. Also in the carport is a old lady with a feather duster. She was dusting off the car tarp. I can see dusting off the Corvette, but the tarp. Now in back of the Corvette protecting it from would be thieves were 2 extra large about 3 ft tall wood owls. Every time the old lady got in range of the owls their eyes would light up and a very loud hooting sound came from them. She had some fancy alarm system owls going on here. Talk about a serious Corvette lover.

Rotten spoiled chicken at Pick N Save

Rotten spoiled I went grocery shopping. It was cold out so I had a craving for chicken and dumplings. Since I don't buy my meat at Walmart I went to the pig. The only chicken breasts they had with skin on them was in a package of 12 that was previoulsy thawed out so it was on sale. What am I going to do with 12 chicken breasts that I cannot refreeze and besides the packages had ice crystals in them. Not a good thing. Moving on to the Pick n Save. No not the ghetto Pick n Save but the new one on spring street. I buy my chicken and I finally go home. The chicken is packed in a bag all by itself. When I get home and open the plastic bag with the chicken it smelled so horrible. The smell just permeated the whole kitchen. It was rotten, spolied chicken. The only thing I can think of is that because the meat section was a open case that is why I didn't smell it in the store. It was only after it was contained in the plastic bag that the smell really got strong. It was so bad I could not even have it in the house. After my groceries are put away back to the Pick n Save I go. Now I check my receipt and I didn't even get the sale price. Now I am fuming. I demanded to speak to the manager and to make a long story short he wanted to give me free chicken and my money back. No I don't want your salmonella infested chicken. But I did end up with double my money back. I guess we are having chili for supper. Back to the Pig I go to buy hamburger. I saw the same butcher at the Pig that I was talking to about the original big packages of chicken and no they did not have any other. I told her my story and she said, that is why I tell people do not buy your meat at the Pick n Save. I know I should have just gone to Danny's Meats. So in the end if you were counting I made 5 trips to the grocery store today just to buy chicken. What a day.

The funny for the day.....haunting eyes and weird old men

HAUNTING EYES… You have to read this ….today I went to the Methodist church rummage sale. After gathering all of my items I wanted to purchase, I sat down on the end of a couch to check them over. This very senior lady came up to me and I mean within a foot of me. She leaned down and looked me straight in the eye and now what is so haunting is her eyes they were dark and they looked like there was no life there. I really can’t explain it except to say they were haunting. She then started shaking her very crooked finger in my face and said to me…..from now on time will stand still for you. Whatever time it is right now, it will be forever. Time is going to stand still for you forever. I just sat there and I really did not know what to say to her except ok. What do you say to a person that says that to you. I told daughter this and she said the women probably had dementia and that is why her eyes had that empty haunting look.

Don’t hit on me….this is part 2. While I was sitting on the couch there were 2 men sitting in chairs next to me eating hotdogs. They kept saying stupid stuff to me and yes talking about there hotdogs. They also invited me home with them so I could cook them dinner and make them some cookies. I wanted to say really…we are in church you old fools. When the senior lady started talking to me, they were speechless so the good news is she shut them up. All of this because a friend called me and  said you have to go to this rummage sale.

The funny for the day....just push the button

Push the button….today when I went to the store there was a car parked in front of mine. The car was locked, engine running and a very senior lady sitting in the passenger seat. The very senior man was outside of the car and yelling push the button…the senior lady just sat there with the deer caught in the headlights look. Push the button…no not that one the other one….push the button. No the one on the left…by now I am laughing so hard and I just wanted to tell the man go around to the other side and point to the correct button. After 5 minutes of this I had to go into the store. When I came out the car was gone so she must have pushed the right button. If I ever get to that stage of my life where I cannot even push a button, just put me away.
