1- The reason that Laurie doesn't come home with People of Wal-Mart stories from work is that Ft Wayne has People of Glenbrook Square instead.
2- I go to Sbarro's to get a double-crust pizza slice and two barely-comprehending Hispanic workers tell me "We don' have them." Cross Sbarro's off my list.
3- The directories place conveniently around the place are severely out-of-date. Reminded me of maps of the world circa 1300 AD.
4- Three of four anchor stores had men's wallets without all the features I wanted ranging from $28- $40. Sears had a better wallet than the one I had for $18. Go figure.
5- Kiosk workers have the single most boring job in Ft Wayne (now that most security is automated). But that still doesn't mean I'm going to try a sample of face moisturizer to enliven your day. Sympathy only goes so far.
6- Best way to deflect Kiosk salespeople? Look at the person with you over your shoulder and keep walking.
7- A great way to attract people into a store (say a sports cap store) is to plaster all over the place signs saying "Clearance items 10-15% off", then have the customer wander all the way to the back of the shop (a real trick in a tiny store) to find a small display of said clearance items (say a 2X2 table with a dozen or so caps on it). Just sayin'.
8- Six, count 'em six, jewelry stores INSIDE the mall- but spend two years harassing the Mike's Car Wash in the parking lot until they leave so you can tear it down and build a Jareds on the spot. Think about that the next time you think you pay a fair price for jewelry.
9- Chik-Fil-A still in the food court, Burger
10- Dippin Dots now in a vending machine.
Totally unrelated, we saw a Kingfisher on the canal yesterday.
Noisy little bugger.
PS- just looked at my feedjit, and I must be on the list again. Last night, Google (AKA "Simi Valley, California" ) was on my blog a total of 11 times in 26 minutes between 11 PM and 12 AM. Hi, guys!
