    When my wife asks me "what do you want for lunch?"

    I respond "I will have the left over pizza, thanks."

    Ten minutes later I came down stairs and there is a bowl of stir fried rice, only it isn't rice, its cauliflower. Not only more effort than throwing the pizza in the little oven, but I will be hungry again in an hour.

    At least your wife makes you lunch... I think mine has done that a total of twice in the last 15 months.

    You haven't had her cooking, it would bring you to this thread fast :rofl:





    Joking, most of her stuff is good. I can only eat so much cauliflower rice in a week though and on Mondays I need real food.

    When people get unnecessarily added into a process.

    In the past if a project I'm working on is below a cost threshold, I was allowed to just do it. Next cost threshold up I need executive approval which is fine. Next tier from there needs "Governance Approval" which includes thoughtfully filling out a cost benefit analysis form. No biggie, its usually easy and from there I get the nod from Mount Olympus.

    Today I learned that I have to send my CBA and supporting documents to some other team for a review, go back and forth with them on details, and if I'm lucky they'll give me the nod to take it to Mount Olympus for an approval.

    I feel like telling them if they don't agree with a CBA, either they should write the CBA themselves or they can tell the line of business that they don't agree with the savings claims. Middlemen aren't beneficial here at all, they're just delaying and driving the cost of business up.

    This drives me crazy too. We have one guy at work that will flip his shit if someone isn't doing something for him "correctly" and will then call EVERY OTHER person in the office to bitch about it and get them involved when in reality that person is handling it just fine, he just got his panties in a wad.

    He also likes to call everyone in the office to talk shit about everyone else behind their backs, including the owner of the company. He's super fun to work with.

    People who know this week that they'll need a meeting next week but wait until next week to book it and then "oh, sorry, the only slot I could find was lunch, ha ha."

    You make a trip for work. You put in the expenses as you're told. Auditors dick around for 2 weeks before looking at it. Send it back because a receipt image is blurry but they don't tell you they sent it back. 3 weeks later you check things and see it's still pending. Take another photo and resubmit it, 2 weeks later they look at it again and submit it to manager for approval THEN when he approves it they wait another 2 weeks to process. Now AMEX is charging late fees. I'll be damn if I'm paying that shit.

    It was great when my previous company started automatically approving certain expenses.

    That's the thing, we are automated but they have an audit is manual and no one knows who these auditors are and they make up rules as they go it would seem. The freakin' blurry receipt was a freakin' $7 chick-fil-a breakfast. Use to be if it was under $25 we didn't even need a receipt.

    Stores that check your receipt at the door, Costco is an exception to this.

    Walmart makes me feel like a criminal whenever I go there. Half the crap I need is locked up, then they want to check my receipt on the way out; eats up my time. I like to hold out my receipt but not stop for them, they're more than welcome to make a scene out of trying to hold me up when I already paid, no way I'm waiting in a line there to get my receipt checked either...

    I don't think I've ever been to a store that checks receipts. Maybe you guys should move out of the ghetto.

    Yeah, it definitely makes me feel like I'm in the ghetto when I'm not. Seems it just alienates some customers and makes them want to actively avoid brick and mortar.

    Receipt checks at the door is the reason I dropped my Sam's Club membership, and one of the reasons I don't shop at Walmart. Fry's had the same policy, but they weren't pushy about it. At Sam's Club, I'd carefully pack everything as the cashier rang it up so it would fit in the car. When I got to the door, I'd have to unpack everything and spread it out so that the twit at the door could check off each item on the receipt. The door twits at Walmart would watch me check out, then demand the receipt as I was walking to the door. They claim it's for loss control, but the reality is that it's a security show for management and a power trip for the twits at the door.

    I swapped receipts one time after arguing with the Wife about it. Are they really checking it? well not in that case. Wasn't even a Costco receipt I gave them.

    Got quoted in two different threads on the same subject! I think Walmart is the only one who really does it other than Costco, which we agreed to allow. I just walk by every time. My wife gets pretty annoyed saying “They’re just doing their job”.

    I don’t have an issue with the person who has to ask, I’m just not going to let a store employee check what is now my property. It seems petty, which it is, but it’s one of my pet peeves.
    I’ve almost definitely already done part of their job by using the self-checkout because they have two out of twenty registers open. If they stop me to make sure I didn’t steal anything, I’m going to make them pay someone to go get their cart from the Applebee’s on the far end of the parking lot.

    In my experience, Costco does actually check. Sam’s just glances and makes a mark on it. They accomplish nothing but building a long ass line to get out.

    That's been our experience, sort of. Whenever we go to Sam's Club, they'll check a few items, and then, I suppose, assume that since those 3 or so things aren't stolen, the rest is probably legit. LOL

    I keep my Sam’s membership because my pays for it, and they do carry a couple of things that others either don’t have, or it’s cheap enough for me to go there. Same with Walmart. They do have a bigger selection than Target does.

    Sams and Walmart are total shitholes next to Costco and Target though. Lines at Sam’s are always way backed up, while Costco actually has their shit together. Costco also takes good care of their employees, and it shows in their attitude.

    We use the self checkout app at Sam’s. We never even go through a register and they still barely glance at the cart. They just have a need to delay everyone I guess.

    Receipt checks just keeps the honest, honest. I don’t mind. What annoys me are the ones at Costco who cannot decide which exit line they’re going to; so I just move around them as I barley have the patience to be in any store- especially a store with groceries

    We must be lucky, then; the one I go to (Jefferson City, MO) is pretty nice. I've seen it get busy but unlike Walmart, they actually *gasp* put out employees to help customers if it gets busy.

    With that said, yeah, were there a Costco anywhere within 60 miles of where I lived, I'd be going there.

    When I sit in a drive thru for 20 mins, and when I finally get to the pick up window the person doesn't say sorry for your wait, or thank you or anything. So when this happens, I look at them and say I'm so sorry for your wait, thank you for your patience, have a great day!!

    They can't control the number of customers they have at the particular time you choose to go there...

    True, But they can control how they greet a customer that has been waiting a long time.
