I was reading some of the reviews and I was surprised to see a similar incident as mine. After crazy shopping before Thanksgiving, I decided to pick up a Cherry Lime – ade. When I got to the window, the worker told me it’s was $2.59. I was about to give her a $5 bill and she asked me if I had 59 cents. I looked at her and said “No!” I asked if they ran out of change and she said that she only had pennies. I was dumbfounded. I could just told her to keep the change and give me the dollars back. I was shocked. I drove there, I ordered the drink and I pulled up and reached to get my drink and she keeps my tip??!! I had to ask for my receipt because she didn’t give it to me. I left the drive thru and I still couldn’t believe what happened. So I decided to pull over and call the Sonic I went to. I asked to speak to a manager and the guy that answered said he was. I told Tim, the manager what happened and asked if this is how Sonic does their business now? He said no and that the girl should have never asked me to make change for her. He was nice enough and apologized for what happened. He even offered a free meal for me when I come back. I was already to go home and I was not willing to go back to that Sonic with that cashier who robbed/stole from me still there. He said that I could back there on Friday to get a free meal, just mentioned that I talked to him. Not sure what I’m going to do? I really don’t want my change taken from me for services not provided. Will see what happens to this post on Facebook. I’m going to post it on my it on my blog to, to see if this is something that is happening at other Sonic’s. If so, SHAME ON YOU, SONIC!
Sonic in San Antonio, Texas and Ana was the person who waited on me.
As I have every November 17th, I post this poem.
This is the fourth year that we have not had my mom here for her birthday. I thought after that many years the hurt will go away little..But looking for her picture only brought back the memories and how much I miss her.
So here’s to you mom happy birthday I love you and miss you more than words can say.
If Roses Grow In Heaven
If roses grow in Heaven Lord
Please pick a bunch for me
Place them in my Mother’s arms
And tell her they’re from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her
And when she turns to smile
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy
I do it every day.
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.
It still amazes me that Daryl Hall and John Oates are not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I believe this is the year that they will get in!
After years of fan complaints, Hall and Oates have belatedly made the list of nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Not that the duo has ever attached too much significance to the recognition.
“It’s really cool,” John Oates says in this Fuse clip. “It’s a good feeling when people think we deserve it. But most people think we’re already in it so, really, what does it matter?”
Hall and Oates join a Class of 2014 first-time nominees that also includes Yes, Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt, Kiss, the Replacements and the Zombies, among others. Good news for Hall and Oates fans: The public gets to vote, along with regular music industry insiders, for a second consecutive year.
Of course, nominees are eligible for induction if they have issued their first single or album no more recently than 1988. Hall and Oates released their debut album some 16 years before that, with 1972′s Whole Oates.
Still, there are no hard feelings from the duo, who both say they couldn’t be more grateful for a hits-packed career: “We love our fans,” Daryl Hall adds, “and we love their support. But don’t feel bad for us.”
Here is one of my favorite Hall and Oates song. From 1977, “Rich Girl“.
I really need to get a tambourine!
Here is my 2-cents for Week 9:
Each couple will perform one unlearned ballroom dance as well as a trio dance. Each couple chose one professional who was either previously eliminated or participates in the dance troupe to perform with them.
I can’t believe that Bill Engvall and Emma Slater are still on the show. It goes to show that the stars fan base plays a lot into the voting.
So I guess my pick to win now is: Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke. Out of the pairs that are left. I like Jack the most and it would be a nice change to have someone who is my really an entertainer win.
