I also talk about Podcast Help Desk going 2 times a week (Wednesday and Saturday) and is now a companion show to Podcast Insider. (by Blubrry). It’s my “Help Mike take podcasting more seriously improvement program”.
I’ve been podcasting nearly 16 years and never really took it past a hobby.
This show (although not “scheduled”) is going to be every Sunday if I can (and do have something to say that week).
Not sure what I’m going to do about the weather brief shows. Something to ponder.
It’s a 1971 JD112 lawn TRACTOR (not a just a lawn mower). The pic is from the night I got it here. I’ve replaced the tires, put on Wheel weights and tire chains. Installed the snow blower attachment and got it all ready for winter. I got all my winter stuff done because winter isn’t really here yet. It’s been a mild fall and it gave me time to really get things done outside.
I talk about the elite control freaks running our states and cities and play a clip from a “Funny” but not so funny video on YouTube.
It’s a little too real to be “funny” but maybe if we use funny in it’s other definition as “Strange” or “Weird”, maybe it’s “funny”.
In Michigan, we have a bottle and can deposit law which makes it necessary to make trips to the bottle return at stores like Meijer and Walmart. Today, I was cleaning the garage and had a load of cans and bottles to go back to the store. Stores that sell beverages that have deposits are required to take back the cans and bottles and pay you back for your deposit.
2 things happened to today that makes me wonder WTF?
First, I was parked at Meijer in Acme and I was a ways away from the cart return. I had enough cans that I needed to get an empty cart to take them all in. I’m walking to the cart return and some woman comes running up to me (less than 2 feet away) and starts giving me crap about not wearing my mask. I said, “you are standing 2 feet away from me. We are outside and masks are NOT required. Please back off.” (Yes I do wear a mask where required.) She started going off on me more as I walked a way and told her to STFU and stay away from me.
Then, I return my cans and had a $15 return slip which you are supposed to turn in for cash in the store. I go in the store and got a few things. In the checkout, It worked out to be $9 and something so I would get $5 something back. The cashier started freaking out on me telling me that I can’t return cans for more money that what I was going to spend. She was EXTREMELY rude to me. I just said, I didn’t see anything about that on any signs and besides that, the law says I can get cash for the cans. She grumbled something and went off and came back with my $5.
People… PLEASE, Mind your own business and just be nice. That was way uglier then it had to be. The cashier was wrong. I’m going to guess she’s having a bad day. But, really?? #fail #meijer #mask #BS
