Going, going, gone... I will miss them

They are the best Starbucks staff ever... and I will miss them. They gave me flowers when my girlfriend's husband died suddenly, they knew how devasted I was of the news. They sent a coffee home with PJ when I was unwell with the flu. They made my 48th birthday extra special and even put a singing candle on the muffin they gave me! They have gone out of their way to make me feel special. I will miss them.
Starbucks at Forest Hill will be no more after tonight. I will miss them! Best wishes to all the staff at FH Starbucks.

Don't you just hate it...

Don't you just hate it when the check-out person at the grocery store makes a mess of bagging your groceries? She said "just watch that the grapes don't get smashed." Well lady, if you'd done a proper job I wouldn't have to worry would I?

Don't you just hate it when you are trying to return a purchased item and the person at the cash register refuses a refund? Just give me (or SJ in this case) what I want and I'll keep coming to your store to shop. SJ didn't get a refund but did get a store credit for over the amount of her purchased goods... that was the mistake of the person at the cash register, but at least it helped SJ to feel a bit better.

Don't you just hate it when you don't have all the indredients you need for the recipe you are about to make?
