"NEVER SELF CHECKOUT

it's not convenient for me to help corporations fire workers so they raise their profits. I stand in line and when the lines back up, the store calls more cashiers to the front. If we keep doing it, they'll need to hire more people. NEVER SELF CHECKOUT"

Thought that post was going to be masturbation-related for a second.

Good, more space at the self checkout for the rest of us.

She (or he) is one of the reasons why i do my shopping on Saturday or Sunday morning as early as possible.
Go waste someone else's time, not mine.

They don't seem to mind putting the people that make the self-service checkouts out of a job!

In fairness, that's a policy I've always stuck to myself for those reasons. I don't go around preaching about it though (until now).

That's not a FB status btw, genuine question.
Most of these people grew up in houses where there were no books or newspapers ever, or paper or pencils, no stories were read, no coloring in even. It was in front of the Telly when it was raining and out in the road when it was dry.
A primary teacher told me 20 years ago that kids of 4 were coming to school who had never turned a page in a book, didn’t know how, and never held a crayon or a pencil in their little hand. Had to be shown how.
It’s a miracle they learned as much as they did!

It was "cool" among teens to misspell everything for a while, not sure if it's still going on. It certainly would lead to illiteracy at some stage.

"I'm not like any skum bag"
No you're not, love. Most 'skumbags' that I know are capable of spelling the words 'scum bag"

I've given it a go...

Why do families butt into other people's relationships, honestly I'm sick of it. I love ****. I'm not a scumbag, if I didn't love him I'd walk, and he'd do the same thing.
