(((Hugs))) Chopper. Here's hoping it's just bruises and not bad ones.

I just got into printing manufacturer coupons, and I will probably never go back there with them... I really don't want to be a bother, but I saved a ton of money!! I only used my coupons for items that were also on sale, so I got a double discount (the normal sale price is not included in the $60 I saved, although the store coupons I used are included). I still have about half my manufacturer coupons, which I hope to use at another store when those items are on sale. I also made a list of things that I noticed were on sale, to go look online for manufacturer coupons. I'm obsessed.
Here's something I bet you didn't know... I work for a large grocery chain, the coupons are shoved in a bag and sent away for processing. There is an acceptable margin of error. It would be nearly impossible to tell who rung a coupon wrong. With that said, if she has made a habit of sliding coupons for friends just to put money in their pocket, they may be watching her, and scrutinizing her drawer.

Neither situation has anything to do with you. I'd call the manager and let them know that you were treated badly.

Today's petty vent is that I slipped on the ice this morning and fell. At first all that hurt was my hands, but now I am starting to have more pain in other parts of my body. I will take more Aleve before going to bed tonight and see what the morning brings. Sorry to be so down, but pain does that to me.
Powerstep inserts are awesome, I got mine from amazon. They improved my plantar fasciitis at least 90% they lasted for years in my work shoes. I don't even need them in my work shoes anymore. I just remember not to go barefoot, that's when the plantar fasciitis let's me know that it is still there!

Been wearing my shoes in the house with the Walgreens inserts the last few days. Much better. I will get some better inserts soon when I can justify spending the money. Always hard to spend on myself.

Well, I caught myself with my hands, so my hands are sore. Most of the weight fell on the right side, so the right arm and ribs on that side are sore. Must have bruised some ribs. The wonderful thing is that I did not throw out my back, and am able to move around pretty good.

i get chastised by my kids all the time for constantly denying myself the smallest gifts and purchases, while being overly generous toward others--putting myself last. i admit to being an extreme example of that. but chopper, what you are talking about falls into an entirely different category of spending--even i recognize and can appreciate that. get yourself the best shoe inserts money can buy--a pair for indoor, another for outdoor wear. you are avoiding unnecessary pain, looking out for your physical well-being, not indulging yourself in any frivolous or self-serving way. if you must, look at it as a gift you are giving to your family. because it is.

So glad you're up and moving, Chopper! You might want to consider getting an elastic rib belt, I've used one with bruised ribs, and it really helped.

And I agree with Vit.

I didn't slip on ice. I went into the underground garage to check the odometer on my car and tripped in the concrete hallway. I banged up the thumb and index finger on my right hand pretty good, banged up my right cheek bone, and split my lip. Ow.

Oh crap. Just now, Taxy?

Maybe we can get a DC group medical insurance policy....
