    Burl, you’re such a big help…

    Modern cars look alike. You could tell a 53 Ford from a 53 Buick. Today, take all the name badges off, it could be any make.

    You are absolutely correct! Like a fool, I bought a silver Chevy SUV. A couple of weeks ago, coming out of the movies at night, I couldn’t find (distinguish) my car. I finally had to press the “Panic” button so’s it would speak up!

    Just to avoid Burl and Joy, Crust Foods keeps reducing and changing the service desk hours…


    Customers are already complaining about having to come at odd times to buy stamps and Lotto tickets….

    But they still can’t find that magic time slot when no Pennys will show up.

    London is exactly 6 hours ahead of Illinois….
    when it’s 8:05 pm in Illinois it’s 2:05 am the next morning in London.


    Maybe the clock that says 8:20 reflects the manager’s intense longing for the moment the Pennys walk away.

    Ever notice that any sort of container full of anything “Free” is always empty the moment they stand nearby?


    It’s like osmosis….
    full purse, empty basket.
    Who are the suckers… Burl and Joy, sucking up free goodies like giant vacuum cleaners…
    or Crust Foods, for thinking they’ll only take one sample each?


    And BTW… you guys above….
    it always seems to me that when I buy a car, the number of them around me instantly multiplies.


    I always buy old station wagons…
    the Volare had at least two twins in every small parking lot….
    The Taurus somehow transformed a quarter of the cars in town into its own image…. it must have.


    When I bought the little Saturn it looked very different to me…
    but suddenly more sprouted everywhere, like dandelions after the rain.

    One cart per customer? Is that to keep coupon people from stripping the shelves? And what are the Pennies doing away from home at night. Maybe the lights will go off in a few min. so they can see to the door since the parking lot obviously doesn’t have security lights.

    I was telling people their lights were on.
    They told me the lights turn off automatically, and not in a friendly way.

    Why is it that when all the cars look like mine, mine is always the one with the flat tire?

    Nice jacket Burl, I’m sure he is a regular customer at Gingess Formal Wear, those U-Sto- it corporate parties are pretty nice place to impress the boss. I suppose he had a tux rented when they folded so he could keep it.

    It’s the PENNY car with the lights on… JOY was driving…. ! ! !

    I was also thinking about the “empty” samples when they’re near, except I thought the manager might have spotted them arriving in the store (and saved them for others).
