Thread Details

I think this would be a great outlet to post our concerns, rants, etc.....on our WAGS experiences due to low stock, new ECers, & S&Gers.

For what it's worth I do believe that low stock is more of an issue than S&Gers, but they and new ECers are definitely playing a huge role in the issues that we are all encountering. Frown

we're discussing SD pet peeves?

How about how someone was quoted, whoever screwed up the quote and now it looks like you have words posted that you NEVER POSTED! ie, the post is attributed to poster A, but because someone screwed up the quote, poster Bs post got attached to poster As username (and usually the quoter doesn't know how to fix it).

I haven't see them yet. Last year I found them at K-Mart! My Wags decided to limit the bags to 1 per customer then too! Frown There were hundreds on an endcap on Saturday evening . They didn't generally limit either. That one still bugs me, a bit. Embarrassment I had collected up a bunch of those coupons and they ended up in the recycle bin. Hopefully if I find them this year I'll be able to redeem them. Smilie

I just need to gripe for a minute. I thought WAGS where I lived before was a little hit & miss, but what little shopping I've done there since we moved, I am not impressed. My closest store is apparently coupon clueless (and there doesn't seem to be a BA when I've been in, so I end up at the front, though I forgot to look today) and they don't even do the military Tuesdays (even though we're in commuting distance from a large Army/USAF joint base.

When I did the Osteo in the first week of the debacle, the cashier checked with the manager, who got the non-ringing BOGO issue taken care of (which I was impressed by) but then she told me I couldn't use 6 MQ's for 6 bottles b/c I was only BUYING 3. She went back and asked, and he told her that yes, I could do that. She came back out muttering that it just wasn't right. She had a look of near disgust when I pulled out the IVC but she shook her head and scanned it.

Today, I tried to buy 4 pints of Ben & Jerry's. I had the WAGS Q and 2 $1/2 IPs. Today's cashier wouldn't take them. She insisted the WQ was a MQ, or a "Walgreen's Manufacturer's Coupon" and said she couldn't use all the Qs. Of course, I went to the front register since I only had the B&J, 2 gallons of distilled water and 2 packs of Nexcare, and as I tried to politely argue with her, a line was forming. I just had her delete the B&J, which meant I couldn't use the 2nd Colgate RR I planned to use, bought my other items and left. I'm pretty sure her argument also included not being able to use a monthly IVC and MQ together either. I may call first and try again tomorrow. Maybe. I might just say sc&*# it and just buy it the next time I go to the Commissary and make my DH go without his Coffee Heath Bar Crunch fix for a while. Truthfully, it would probably be better for both of us to get off the ice cream kick we've been on lately, but he's being pretty resistant to the idea.

How in the world can stores be so uninformed? That's ridiculous. Sorry you didn't leave with your B&J ice cream. I think some cashiers just like to be difficult. The highlight of their day was making you leave your ice cream. Frown Very sad some folks are like that.

That stinks! Oh, if you do decide to go back sometime for B&J, the coupon is taking up a slot for me, no matter the order in which I have them rung up. So you may run into that issue,

Haven't seen them yet. Last year I could find the Halls in CVS. I never did find the "good" MQ last year, I think they were BOGO MQs? All I could find were the 55ยข.

I've told this story before. Someone on another, non-coupon forum was a moron. laugh out loud

We were discussing Special Olympics and whether or not we'd ever volunteered (it's such a cool experience if you have never done it). Anyway, someone came in and made some horrible comment about SO participants. Someone else multi-quoted the troll and a bunch of other people, including me. Of course they changed the quotes around by accident while snipping and it ended up that I was attributed as making the horrible comment. The person never came back to fix their mistake, so I had to mod-alert the post to get it deleted. Most people realized what had happened but I was really mad about it! EEK!

Thanks for all your replies regarding the cats/kittens. We have counted 25. 2 litters apparently born this year. 7 that we know of have been spayed/neutered. They are the original cats this woman owned. We have no knowledge of how her estate will be handled. She owns 2 homes - one of them which was used to house the cats. The power is still on in both homes.

DH is going to see his Mom this weekend. Thanks to stitchshopgirl he will visit the PetSmart and see if they can give him any names or agencies that might be willing to help.

My vet basically said the same thing that you said Tipper - that rescue organizations are overwhelmed with pets.
I think you have to keep in mind that they aren't your cats. ......and I don't mean that as "so don't worry about it". Legally they belong to her estate, so either her family/lawyer needs to be made aware or you may have no choice but to go to your government agency that handles animal control problems.

If your DH can find an organization willing to help, maybe they will know what is necessary to legally take the cats. I would seriously try to contact the estate or a government agency instead though. It's a ridiculous fine line, that you are dealing with a living creature, but on the other hand they're her "property".

I usually find the good halls manufacturer coupons (tearpads) at the military exhange.My kids usually spot them on a waist high display. Haven't been to a bx in a while but the displays are usually out around this time. I have seen them at my bx and in exchanges a few towns over for years now (on displays this time of year)
