    Enjoy your pumpkin spice latte, donut, etcetera while you can. Because ‘minter’ is coming soon.

    The vehicle is going away from us. You can see the headrest behind Mr. Dear’s head.

    Well, your first few sentences were on target. Then it all went out the window. While each industry is different, the grocery industry has an extremely slim margin. The only real way to make good revenue is by volume. If your net profit is only 2% after all expenses, maintenance, taxes, etc., you’ve got to sell a lot of volume in order to even make $10,000.00 in profit. The large corporate grocers have it easier, but the profit margin is still around 5%. Volume is the key. Your local independent grocer isn’t trying to rake you over the coals; their expenses are higher. I know this because I am that independent local grocer in a rural community. Expenses are killing us. We are charged a fee if we don’t have enough freight ordered (that is derived by an actual algorithm; you can’t guess how to make that go away. You just gotta hope you order enough for that shipment), a higher fuel surcharge than ever before, fees for using software, fees to be a member of a cooperative, and many more expenses that are directly related to your ability to sell groceries. In this rural community, we just want to survive to serve the community, we are not trying to cheat people. Just this last week we made the decision to drop one shipment per week in order to stave off that minimum delivery fee that we get charged because we haven’t met the supplier’s delivery requirements. This wasn’t an easy decision, and I’ve dragged my feet for nearly six months because I really didn’t want to do it. But there’s really no other way to be rid of that fee. That fee alone was nearly $3,500.00 last year, and the extra fuel cost was about $1,600.00. We can’t afford to soak up those fees and still stay afloat.

    Oh man, I must need some more coffee. I had to read that out loud before I caught it. Thanks for the laugh!

    It’s hard to tell sarcasm/humor in print unless it’s pointed out. Be kind, or at least be clear in the response. There was a thread on another comic’s comment section a few weeks ago that went downhill because the person who asked the question wasn’t living in America and was asking a valid question. And the responders tried to tear him apart. He fought back, at least.

    Huhmp… I used to know someone like this in a past work environment. Glad that’s over.

    Yes. Unfortunately, that is the truth. And history can be skewed (spun) to make the victor look righteous, even if they are not… from eons ago to the current world we live in today.

    I know two women named Karen. Neither is a ‘Karen’. I think we need to learn to laugh a little, people, and be broadminded enough to realize that it isn’t an insult to ALL people named Karen.
