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.
Actually, my sister was a cashier for 10 years, before she got her "real job" so I did know that :) My sister pretty much let customers use whatever coupons they wanted, within reason, as long as it wasn't really breaking store policy. Customer leaves happy, and returns to the store, so everyone wins. I thought about complaining, but contrary to that cashier's belief, I actually don't want to see her lose her job. If she is awful to customers, she will get what's coming to her, but if she was just having an off day I'd rather leave it at that. I did get my dollar off, after all! She was laughing, smiling, and joking with the couple just ahead of me, so I'm factoring that into my opinion of her :)

Hey chopper- have you ever had physical therapy for your plantar fasciitis? I had a bout of it after breaking my heel bone, and physical therapy really helped. They did something with an ultrasonic device of some kind that was supposed to help with the inflammation. Just a thought- I am all about treating causes rather than symptoms, but obviously whether or not they could do anything for you in physical therapy would be something to talk to the doc about. I'm certainly no expert!

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.
Hope you are feeling better soon Chops!

In our family we call that yellow thing the The nuS. (sun backwards) If you say its name when it first comes out, it becomes very shy and goes back behind the clouds.

I talked to my daughter about an hour ago. This is her chemo week and she sounded really good considering she has already had four days of it. She stays in bed during this week as her muscles become very weak and she can't stand up on her own. She goes for the next MRI on March 15th and then gets the results on March 20th from her oncologist. I am starting to get nervous.
