I understand the battle between the billionaire family members. I don't understand why the workers were so vested in this. Their jobs were not in jeopardy, the business was thriving. I don't understand why they felt so strongly about ownership. Not at all. The one I shop at is surrounded by very affluent towns. It's a normal, every day grocery store chain that just happens to have great prices. Price... Continue Reading

I was just about to read your thread and suddenly it was gone. I couldn't imagine what you could say that would warrant a poof, John. Your posts are generally pretty mild. Continue Reading

Re: Need Trac Phone Recommendation

Does anyone know when the next cell phone TSV will be? I've seen at least two this year, so I'm hoping they have another TSV before the holidays. I think I'm going to give it a try this year. Continue Reading


Re: Dogs on Restaurant Patios Approved By Gov. Brown

In Viewpoints 1409235209.29

I would hope that anyone with a badly-behaved dog would refrain from bringing the dog to a restaurant. Most people know if their dogs are disruptive or not. A well-behaved dog wouldn't even be noticed by most people anyway. I wouldn't have a problem with it. Continue Reading

Mike Barnacle said he really cares about his customers too...that's right up there in importance! He does and that attitude flows down throughout the organization. When you're shopping at MB and you ask "Where can I find (whatever product)? They don't just tell you "Aisle 8", for example, they stop what they're doing and escort you to where you can find your product. That really impressed me, especially for a large market....

Re: Do you feel flattered or annoyed when someone copies you?

In Viewpoints 1409233372.45

It depends how they do it. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so most of the time I would be flattered. I can see in certain situations how it could be annoying, though. Continue Reading

I was so happy to hear the news this morning! With the country divided by rich and poor these days, when was the last time the 99% put their jobs on the line for the 1%? Fantastic that the little guy won. The employees risked everything to get their beloved CEO back and now they can get back to work. I heard that Arthur T. addressed the employees at headquarters this morning and that the crowd was overflowing. Continue Reading
