This old guy (I'd say 60'S) thought I was stealing from Meijer today. the same greater dOOd I see every week I go there. so I have a tip for you all don't for any reason (not that it gets cold in BG) wear a big heavy coat such as a Carhartt Arctic that has BIG pockets in which to put heavy gloves and a thick wool hat in. the guy had me take my hat and gloves out (as well as the other crap I put in my coat). I have been shopping at Meijer for I don't know how many years now? and I have had this coat for over a year now. the guy approached me "can I see you're receipt?" "sure thing sir" "you aren't trying to shoplift are you?" "no I am not, Scouts Honor" (I am an Eagle Scout) this other Meijer employee walks closer, looks like manager material I guess. "can I see what is in your pockets?" "sure thing!" *Ken empties pockets of hat, gloves, pack of gum, pack of kleenex(tm), web site revisions for Chapman, box of penguin mints, digital camera, glasses case, and jewelers screw drivers set* this smart ass (younger than me I think) manager asks me if I can recite the Scout Oath and Law. geez all mighty. On my honor I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong; mentally awake, and morally straight A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Freindly, Courteos, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Breave, Clean and Reverant. "You get a bonus today, here is the Outdoor Code" As an American, I will do my best to - Be clean in my outdoor manners. Be careful with fire. Be considerate in the outdoors. and Be conservation minded I mean, come on, do you know how many years of my life I have recited those? I have been an Eagle Scout since 1995 and am still active in Scouting. I eared more than 50 Merit Badges, and have been a Merit Badge counselor for SUmmer Camp and an Assistant Scoutmaster for my troop. I have also been to National Jamboree and was on staff there one year. I explain this to these two. "um, well, i'm sorry" *smart ass manager hands ken back his stuff and Ken leaves Mejer* Will I be back, heck yea I am not about to drive all the way across town to go Krogering! not when Meijer is whithin spittin' distance. I took down their names in my Palm and left. cuz I got coding to do. fun fun I love it when I can be a smart ass and be right about it.
