I’m sorry, but if you are a foodstamp recipient and you come through my line with crab legs, an overpriced bouquet made out of candy because “it’s pretty” and some shrimp, and your 4 kids are eating gummy snacks, banquet meals, and tap water, I’m gonna judge you. I’m gonna judge you as harshly as I judge a serial killer. Fuck you.

Nuts!

Had to return to the grocery store today to return a bag of macadamias, should have known better the super deal was too good to be true, they were rancid.

They’ve put out a giant nut display table at the store. I passed.

Happy that they carry my favorite coconut water locally, beats waiting to pick it up in Atlanta.

Panera asks patrons not to bring guns to its cafes

The bakery-cafe chain Panera said Monday that it is asking customers not to bring firearms into any of its 1,818 outlets in 45 states.

The voluntary move followed what the advocacy group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America said was “months of discussions” with the company.

Panera said in a statement that it strives to create cafes “where customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome.”

"To this end, we ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer," the statement said. "Panera respects the rights of gun owners, but asks our customers to help preserve the environment we are working to create for our guests and associates."

Panera CEO Ron Shaich told CNBC that its request “is simply we recognize everyone’s rights, but we also recognize that we are building communities in our cafes and are where people come to catch a breath.”

Shaich added that Panera was “respectfully requesting” customers to leave their firearms at home, but will continue to follow state and local firearms laws.

Panera joins other companies like Target, Chipotle, Starbucks, Sonic, Jack in the Box and Chili’s that have responded to the organization’s appeal.

The advocacy group said Panera was the first company to move proactively to ask customers not to bring in firearms.

"Moms are the consumers-in-chief of our households and we will reward companies that take a stand for our families’ safety," said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action.

The announcement by Panera comes as Moms Demand Action, which favors stronger gun laws, is running a petition drive and ad blitz calling on Kroger stores to prohibit open carry in and around its stores.

Kroger — the world’s third-largest retailer, with more than $100 billion in annual sales — is the group’s biggest target yet. Company officials have said Kroger just wants to sell groceries, not enter political debates.

"Our long-standing policy on this issue is to follow state and local laws and to ask customers to be respectful of others while shopping," Kroger said in a statement last week. "We know that our customers are passionate on both sides of this issue, and we trust them to be responsible in our stores."

Here in North Texas, we’re experiencing Icepocalypse 2013. I journeyed to the grocery store with my Dad and the store was out of things like bread, eggs, chicken, and other basic necessities.

Just before we leave, we see an employee restocking the chicken bin, so my Dad grabs some, and asks him,

Dad: Do you know if you guys are restocking the eggs soon too?

Employee: No sir, I don’t think so…

Dad: You’d think they’d deliver those things at the same time…they seem to go hand in hand…

Me: Well that’s the answer.

*Both turn and look at me*

Me: The chicken comes before the egg.

So here’s the new cups at kroger grocery store king soopers this year (left ones are last years)

The new cups are sooo cute! The added raccoons and squirrels :) I hope to pick up about 4 more:) the little wind glasses are cute too but I haven’t purchased any yet.

However the new dishes (I do not have a photo of them) are really crappy looking. They have owl, and raccoons and stuff but they are no where near the quality of last years stuff (which I have taken a picture of the pieces I purchased) the actual art on them is cute, but very … Rushed? The glaze/paint on most pieces is very thin and looks crappy.

Was very let down :( I hope that maybe it’s just my store… I need to check some different stores to see.. But yeah I’m am quite upset :(if I remember next time I’m at the store I’ll take a picture of everything.

LOOK

THIS IS MY CITY

This is at a Kroger in my city.

This video shows a group (around 20, maybe more) of black men and some women looking for white people to beat up.

They find some kid, just working at Kroger, maybe 16 or 17, a beat the shit out of him. He did nothing. Nothing provoked them except for his skin color. They ALSO beat up the employees that try to help him.

We are still hearing about Ferguson, and yes that still needs to be spread around, but so does this.

I only saw this now, and it happened two days ago. We need to spread this or EVERYONE (not just african americans) will continue to believe that this is okay.
