   Pickle1 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Things are going wild over at Facebook. Hundreds of people are being blocked from posting, liking, creating pages; etc. Both liberals, conservatives and everything in between. More are being blocked each day. The sad part is no one knows why they are being blocked. Facebook refuses to acknowledge any communication. It’s thought it might be an error in the written code or perhaps hacking; but no one knows. It might be noted that Facebook rules state if you are blocked it would be for a few hours to a few days. Most people have been blocked 3 months or longer with no hope of getting out of limbo cyberspace. People have written to everyone from founding members of Facebook to every other source they could get; but no response. Nada, zero, nothing.

If I were head of a company I would want to let my customers at least know something and the problem is being looked at; but nothing from the guys at Facebook.

It seems this would be a good opportunity for someone to start a legitimate social site.

Maybe it's time for everyone on facebook to get a real life ?

   StormCnter  Facebook should be a social tool, not Dear Diary. The idea was attractive, but the reality is a monster. Yes, I'm on it, but I very rarely post anything at all and I have NEVER posted photos of the grandkids or a recipe.

   Pickle1  I thought it might be a broken written code or hacking which is always a possibility; but given the recent lawsuits including some over this type of issue, it appears more like FB is acting on advice of their legal dept or other legal advice not to respond which is kind of dumb. I wouldn't think in a normal business atmosphere you wouldn't deny service to so many of your users. Just a thought.

   Pickle1 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Another scam. I caught Krogers doing this.

MUST READ: THIS SCAM CAN BE DONE ANYWHERE, AT ANY RETAIL OR WHOLESALE LOCATION!!!

It happened at a Wal-Mart Supercenter a month ago.

I bought a bunch of stuff, over $150, & I glanced at my receipt as the cashier was handing me the bags. I saw a cash-back of $40. I told her I didn't request a cash back & to delete it.
She said I'd have to take the $40 because she couldn't delete it. I told her to call a supervisor.

Supervisor came & said I'd have to take it! I said NO! Taking the $40 would be a cash advance against my Discover & I wasn't paying interest on the cash advance!!!!! If they couldn't delete it then they would have to delete the whole order.
So the supervisor had the cashier delete the whole order & rescan everything!

The second time I looked at the electronic tab before I signed & a cash-back of $20 popped up. At that point I told the cashier & she deleted it.

The total came out right. the cashier agreed that the electronic pad must be defective. (yeah, right! )

Obviously the cashier knew the electronic pad wasn't defective because she NEVER offered me the $40 at the beginning.
Can you imagine how many people went through before me & at the end of her shift how much money she pocketed?

Just to alert everyone. My coworker went to Milford , DE Wal-Mart last week. She had her items rung up by the cashier. The cashier hurried her along and didn't give her a receipt.

She asked the cashier for a receipt and the cashier was annoyed and gave it to her.
My coworker didn't look at her receipt until later that night. The receipt showed that she asked for $20 cash back. SHE DID NOT ASK FOR CASH BACK!

My coworker called Wal-Mart who investigated but could not see the cashier pocket the money. She then called her niece who works for the bank and her niece told her This is a new scam. The cashier will key in that you asked for cash back and then hand it to her friend who is the next person in line.

Please, please, please check your receipts right away when using credit or debit cards!

This is NOT limited to Wal-Mart, although they are the largest retailer so they have the most incidents.

I am adding to this.... My husband and I were in Wal-Mart North Salisbury and paying with a credit card. When my husband went to sign the credit card signer, he just happened to notice there was a $20 cash back added. He told the cashier that he did not ask nor want cash back and she said this machine has been messing up and she canceled it.
We didn't think anything of it until we read this email.

I wonder how many "seniors" have been, or will be, "stung" by this one????

Please pass this along!

   BirdsNest  I can understand the reason for posting this here, not too many are likely to visit the Shopper's Beware wall, the Lobby and Coffee Klatch are visited more often. This cause me to search out our last receipt from WM, haven't located it yet, but I will find it!

   Gram77  I don't know how the computers are programmed at Wal-Mart, however, before I bagged groceries at Publix, I cashiered for a long time. Even if a cashier has totaled out a order with such an error as described above, the customer service people can put money back onto a credit card. I encourage every customer to insist on cashier errors be corrected. The personnel usually say no because they don't want the bother of doing their jobs.

I was screaming at hubby to look at Honey Pickle on TV. He was napping, of course; but you should have seen his expression when he saw her. It was priceless. LOL

   Pickle1 posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  I wonder if anyone might have seen two puppies that look similar to this dog. We have been searching for them since 2011. They were stolen through breach of contract by recently convicted animal abuser, Jennifer Herberts, here in TX. The only thing we have been able to find out is the female puppy name Iris may have been sold to someone in OK or TX. Any info would be appreciated.

   MsHope  My husband and I are right there with you. We are losing our 12 year old "rescued" dog to pancreatitis and liver failure. My goal is to provide even a fraction of the enormous amount of comfort, love and protection he has so generously given us all these years. I am trying to focus on something Ynaught relayed in describing the great joy her recently departed dog had provided so many people over the years. While a vast amount of our days consists of attending to his comfort, it is time well spent. We extend our empathy, Pickle.

   MsHope  Pickle, I did not intend to "barge in" on your post, adding my grief as well. My intent was to offer not advice, but perhaps some positive thoughts about a difficult situation. I see you have already done so through your contact with a man that may offer help not only to Keeley but humans as well. My prayers for you also; not only for Keeley's health, but for a smooth path rather than a rocky road to whatever is ahead.

   Balogreene  I learned dogs live 12 years, cats, up to 25. Then I learned the variables. 6 1/2 is so young. Our Desi is 13, greyhounds are supposed to live to 12. Two have lived beyond, two didn't make it. May God hold Keeley in His arms thru all of this. We all know He will give Keeley peace, and all the greater benefit, and I bet we have a LOT of friends between us, at the Bridge, cheering Keeley on.

   Yottyhere  Pickle, I just read a long article about White Shepherds
http://www.awsaclub.com/faq.htm
very interesting.

And it seems there arent any special problems you have to address other than the normal problems people who have German Shepherds face. Sometimes a food allergy,problems with the hips etc.
Ike is gorgeous.

   Pickle1  Yottyhere: They don't have any more problems than any of the rest. He is registered with the AKC; but as usual can't show because the rules which dates back. I personally think it was due to Hitler who wanted all the white shepherds destroyed. Thought them to be inferior. Any vet will tell you they are usually stronger than the colors.

However, Ike has been an international and national champ since 3 months of age and I am going to title him out. He is beautifully conformed and his parents are winners in just about everything they compete in. He is a joy to be around. Just loves to be loved.

I found that link to be very interesting because I didnt know all that about the White Shepherds.
That was how daughters Gus was he loved being loved on. AND you could see him grin when he teased the puggies too :D Mabel would get so mad at him she would stomp around stiff legged just scolding him because he had one of her toys...

   Pickle1  I am so sorry to hear about her GS. I lost a kitty in May at 19 from nose cancer. She all of the sudden developed it. My vet says the older animals get the more they will get a disease. Had a blue queen heeler lab mix 17 when he passed. Not a thing wrong with him ever and then he just got old. I miss all my babies so much.

The GSD are so funny and really loyal to their owners.
