Happy Friday

Yes, it will be, lol. After last night i just want a happy day today. Ok i have not been shopping Walgreens for a while because they have been going downhill on the way they treat there customers. So i went today because they had some things i was wanting on sale. I didn't stop at my usual. will not do that again.

I was at the Wags on 71st and Cass St. In Omaha Nebraska. If you ever shop in Omaha i recomend you don't shop this one. 

Here are the items i bought:
3 Hershey Dark Chocolate
3 Hershey choc bars
1 Butterfinger
1 gillet fusion razor (yes it was the correct one on sale)
2 Dr. Pepper 2li.
1 7up lit.
1 sunkist lit.

-$4 coupon for razor
-3 b1g1f hershey coupons
Total $8.68
Was suppose to get a $6 Register Rewards and a $2 Register Rewards
Didn't get either

I mentioned it to the clerk he called the manager and he said to go to customer service and they would pay me the difference. So i went and the cashier said she wanted to see my receipt, i said ok. I said here are the products i bought, she said no that's ok. She said you used manufacter coupons, you can't use manufacter coupons and get a Register Rewards.

I said yes, i know you can. I have shopped Walgreens many years now and know you can use manufacter coupons and still get a RR. I know you can not use a RR and get a RR though. 

So they kept yelling at me no you can't and i was wrong and such. So i said i would like to speak to the manager then please. She says ok whatever. Calls him and just walks away. He comes over and starts to walk away and says what did you need me for. She said that lady there wants to talk to you. So i said to him...

Your employees are insisting that you can not use manufacter coupons and get a register rewards. He said you can't. I said since when ? He said i don't know but you can't. Our store manager told us that. I said i know as a fact that you can use them and i said , i will be right back and walked out to the car and got my email from corp. once before on another issue and let him read it. He says well i still can't do anything. You will have to come back and speak to store manager in the morning. 

He also said why would we pay you to take these items ? We don't do that?( Here is what i am thinking but not saying -LOL Really ? Hmm i remember getting many things free here.)

I was nice the whole time until now. He says i didn't have to treat his employees the way that i did. I said i didn't treat them anyway. And if they wouldn't treat there customers the way they did this wouldn't be happening. I said they treated me like crap.

So i am told to come back in the morning to speak w/ the store manager. I tell him i do not want to speak to him in the morning when i am here now and there is a problem. I said could you call corporate for me ? No our phones don't call out. If i had my cell phone i would have handed it to him. 

I said ok well, something needs to be done because i am not leaving until something is fixed. You have my coupons, you wrote all over my coupons and i can not use them again because i know if i did there would be issues. I asked him if he would just re ring everything and see if the rewards do not come out. He wouldn't even do that. He get's mad and opens the register gives me $8 and says here and slams his drawer. 

I just said, thank you and walked out. As i am walking out he is following me and my FAMILY out to the car. Yes this is how i want my 8 yr old and 2 yr old to see me as a criminal when i did nothing wrong.

Good Day Thursday

Good Morning, i hope all is well with you. I'm hoping to do some cleaning and such today. I have a pork loin i need to throw in my crockpot. I need to do some organizing for the coupon class and such. I am so excited about that. Thank you for the people who have decided to come join. I hope you learn something from it and it's not a bore for you

A thought for today... over the weekend my husband and i rented a movie. It was called Fireproof. I thought it was about fires and rescuing. I thought it would be a movie like Ladder49. So it was not like that at all. It was a real eye opener for me.

It is about a couples relationship that is in trouble. She wants a divorce and he tries everything he can to not let the divorce happen. It's about bringing God into your life. Not letting the little things get to you. My husband and i both really enjoyed the movie. I recomend anyone to watch it but i suggest couples who are having issues to really watch it. It could change your life. It defiantly has me thinking and seeing things differently.

Went with my Husbands family to celebrate a birthday at a pizza place. It was called Lansky's. I've been to several before but not the one in Bellevue. It was nice and the staff was friendly. We had been waiting for a while for our food but i wasn't going to say anything since we were a large party and it was Sat. night.

After a while the manager came over and asked if we received our food yet ? I said no. He said he would get it out to us. Came back and gave us a $15 gift certificate and apologized. I explained that it was not needed and i understood why our food was late, he was honest and said it had nothing to do with our party being big. He said they had lost our pizza. I don't think it was lost i think it found it's way to someone else stomach, LOL. Anyhow they were nice and i will go back and give them another try w/ my certificate.

Last night i had an interesting night. I was invited to be a guest speaker for a MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) group here locally. I was speaking about using coupons and ways to save money while shopping. I tried covering most of what i could. I hope i did not bore too many people, lol.

I enjoyed speaking to the Moms. If you read this and your from the group, THANK YOU for letting me come to your group and speak. If you are in doubt about anything please feel free to send me an email and i would be glad to try to help you.

I was invited to come back to the group sometime. Perhaps i could. I think i could enjoy coming once a month and learning and see other moms who may be experiencing things that i may be too as another mom of a preschooler.

Well we didn't get the .25cent pizza, lol. That's ok. We ate yummy tacos and chocolate sams
(no bake cookies.) We rooted for the cardinals. My daughter says there pretty, lol. They weren't too pretty after the game last night.

Today i have to get paper work together for taxes. Oh how i dread that, i think a lot of people do so i am not alone on this. I woke up w/ a sore throat and swollen, here's hoping i don't have strep. Enough about me for today moving on.
