I am slowly recovering from the plague a sinus infection, so this is a catching-up, of sorts. First, we have this link from reader Kathy T– “Test Your Grime IQ.” I’m guessing I’m pretty smart- I missed only one. And I’d like to protest that one, at that. 😉
The next thing on the agenda is a money saving tip from commenter Jax, for people who are lucky enough to have Publix grocery stores (we do! I love it!):
There’s a rebate at Publix valid through 6/29/08 in AL, TN, GA, FL, and SC. Buy $20 of participating ConAgra foods and get a $25 Home Depot gift card by mail-in rebate. They even provide a post-paid envelope. The forms were behind the service desk at my location in Florida, and the booklet even has a manufacturer’s coupons for a few of the items. This is a great chance to stock up on some basics for hurricane season.
Nice deal! I could use some Home Depot money!
Finally, I saw reader Shauna earlier this week and she asked me this question that I thought would be a great ask the audience. Her question was this: If you spill a jar of pickles in the grocery store, you let them know, they clean it up, right? But what do you do if you accidentally knock produce off on the floor- especially things that bruise, like apples? Do you pick them up and put them back, or should you let an employee know about the apples that ended up on the floor and are potentially bruised?
I thought this was a good question. I know whenever I knock produce items off on the floor (and it’s with some frequency, as I’m clumsy), I put it back but feel bad for potential unsuspecting customers who might end up with my floor produce.
So, what do you do, Home Eccers? Surely someone here knows what’s the correct etiquette.
