Re: Incompetence

Absolutely not. You can never make me believe that a kid making $8/hr that, in your situation, can't compare 4 items on a screen to the 4 items in a bag is magically going to be able to do it correctly if they were paid $15/hr. You don't perform to match what you get paid, ideally you get paid to m...

Re: Incompetence

$15/hr :banghead: But you also get what you pay for. I'm not against a $15/hr minimum wage if that's what would be required to have a living wage. People who are underpaid for the work they perform tend to not perform as well. That's not to say everyone performs better when paid higher wages, but i...

Re: Incompetence

I've noticed the same thing with fast food places around town. I get that mistakes happen, but it seems the odds of a mistake are closer to 80/20 when I hit up a drive thru. I don't have complicated orders yet it seems something is always messed up. Just this last week I went through Wendys, got my ...

Re: Chickadee's or whatever

They actually had a sign on the building today that said Chick A D's so I guess it's still going in.

Re: Hail Storm

I'm also curious about who to call for Windows and I guess siding as well. Pirate Roofing made a post on their facebook to email them at pirateroofing@gmail.com as they are flooded with over 300 voicemails.

No kidding, I thought La Quinta was spanish for "Next to Denny's"

Re: Lake Lavon

Yea and when they do release why not slow release all summer? The high rate that they release calls all the fisherman out to 78. Then they end up drowning. Oh...and spare me the "It's a flood control lake" comments...because everyone in the area has been drinking and bathing out of that lake for de...

Re: Internet / TV in Lavon

With this information, owlhooter, I imagine that Netflix and Pandora wouldn't be a possibility at all. With the provider she originally had she was constantly getting buffering issues with even small facebook and youtube videos. Some of that could have also been her computer at the time. But it wor...

Re: Internet / TV in Lavon

My Mom lived in Grand Heritage until a few months ago, TV was either DirecTV or Dish, and she had been using a fixed point wireless internet service which was horrible and her connection kept going out. The last few months she was there I just set her up to tether her laptop to an AT&T 4G LTE phone ...

Yeah, I have never heard of it either, also reading through the meeting minutes I found a Chicken Express approved in front of Kohls.

Re: Driving Rand and a Rave

I've noticed drivers getting way too impatient. Not turning left when they want you to because you don't want to race the oncoming car and risk getting clipped? HONK! Driving through 635 construction is loads of fun too, people always waiting until the last possible second to merge, or constantly ch...

Re: Pressure on Obama to Quickly Resolve Centuries-Old Confl

It's amazing that Obama was able to accomplish agreeing to pull ALL troops out of Iraq by the end of 2011, on the agreement in 2008, before he was even elected President.
