Big or Small, post them!

I took out some smokies from the freezer and thawed them last night for dinner. Then in the morning I throw them in the fridge and I am good to go for supper the next day. These I bought a week ago. I threw them in the freezer right away because I didn't know when I would use them. Come to find this morning there is mold on them! They don't expire until the 9th of August! I live far enough away from a grocery store it isn't worth it to me to go to town, spend the money on gas not to mention my own time to return them! SO MAD! My grocery bill isn't high enought!! Its my own fault of course too for not looking at them closer in the store I suppose. UGH! I was looking forward to those. 

Anything that makes you mad?

I was thinking of this even before I read your comment--I bought a couple of nice dresses at Marshall's for $30 each--such a bargain--then it costs me $15 to dry clean them!  I was lucky that I bought a couple of more expensive dresses at Loft that can be hand washed.  I read about some dry cleaning things that you can use at home (like dryer sheets I guess) so maybe I'll have to investigate that.

Oh as far as McDonald's--if I go to the drive through there or at other places, I always look in the bag before I drive away cause they have gotten the order wrong so many times--I think maybe they can't hear through the speaker.

The price of dry cleaning and pressing.  I usually clean and press our clothes, but I have been really busy with my business move and DH has been wearing more summer dress shirts so I took one silk shirt to the dry cleaners - $7.50 is what the bill was!!

I just live down the street from Walmart and I still get annoyed when something gets left.  Some checkers are really good about checking, and will even put your sacks in the cart for you.  Others just stand there waiting for you to do it.  I have also come home with someone elses sack! 

Not really a financial annoyance, but you get home from McDonalds and they have forgot the sauce for your nuggets. 

Oh wait, what was the question?  When Washington Mutual was bought out by Chase.  My free checking wasn't free anymore.  They waited a while before sticking it to you, but eventually they added a $10 service charge.  If you keep an average balance of $1,500 or you have an automatic deposit of at least $500 every month, the fee is waived.  What does automatic deposit have to do with it?

Oh yea, Galstore, that makes me mad.  I live 15 mi from the grocery & then I have to be so careful with cheeses & milk to make sure they aren't outdated on the store shelf & I hate searching for those dates & trying to read the fine know I am almost 50!!  Also, I live 75 mi from walmart & have made it all the way home only to realize one of my sacks was left on the stupid I call the store & they will only keep the sack for one then have to plan another trip up there.  Their clerks should have to check the carosel before the customer leaves.  Now, I'm the one that checks before I leave the store...lesson learned.  Also, I was once charge for 40 pounds of grapes instead of 4 but looked at my receipt once I got to the car because I thought the total for the groceries was too much.  But really after being in those super stores trying to find everything on your list & then checking out & trying to watch as things are rang up is almost impossible.  I HATE buying groceries.
