Justa sharing some news with my rich relatives.

I subscribe to the Wegmans news letter. Don't ask me why. I need to get a life. Check out their web site here. They make it easy to spend your hard earned money. Really, I don't hate Danny Wegman! Isn't it an awesome site. I talked Momma into getting one of the Hi-lighted menu's of the week one time. I forgot what it was now, it was very good but... Momma rushed through the store gathering all the necessary ingredients,(She was going to please her man) she wanted to stick to the items as presented in the Menu and she did. Arriving at the check out breathless,with anticipation,not knowing that she had been led to the slaughter like an unknowing lamb,she laid the meal of a life time on the conveyor belt. $22.00. Ouch! Yeah Danny, you got me that time.

This is the truth, I don't hate Danny Wegman. But let me tell you a couple more times where Danny got me. It was at his warehouse when I used to Deliver there when I owned my own Truck.image This isn't a picture of it. But it will give you an idea of the size of it. Maybe I can down load pictures of my other trucks I owned at another time. But any way. Back to Danny's Gold mine(I mean warehouse). When you get there you check in, park out side, then walk about 1/4 of a mile to check in. They'll tell you to to either " back in" or my favorite "Wait in your truck, we'll come and get you when we have an open door." Actually,waiting in the truck isn't a bad option if you arrive there tired. This part of dealing with Danny's boys(or girls) isn't the problem. Refer to size of truck. It's when you are told to back in you have to drive inside where the doors are. I wish I had a picture of the area inside they give you to move around, but trust me Mr.Ed hitched to a wagon would have a difficult time. For those of you under 40, Mr. Ed was a horse on a tv show...

Anyway this is getting windy. Even this isn't the real bad part. The bad part (skipping ahead some). Is that while they unload you, you have to stand beside the door in case the pallets have to be restacked. That is if they come in 6 high on the pallet and they only want them 5 high to fit in the storage racks or some sort of combination. I've had to put them from 5 high to 6 high sometimes. "So what" you say,(I'm going to sound like a Magna worker now) I wasn't paid to do that. That was free labor for Danny. There is a lot more,but I'm going to cut it short here because some of you are already sleeping. And really, I don't hate Danny Wegman!image

Mr.Jackofall58 , Good thing you don't sell cars for a living as our car is a Nissan, not a Datsun. I also believe our car was assembled in Tennesee by full blooded American Men and Women.On the last item you mentioned in your comment. I'm a little concerned that you would know if it had changed sizes or not. I'm Justa saying.
