Okay, so went shopping and charged the purchase, when I got home looked at the receipt and it was for 3X what I had bought. Went back and talked to the manger and we straightened it out, seems they put the last 4 numbers of the CC in and the cashier was treating it like a debit card so it thought that was the amount, honest mistake but it would have cost me money if I didn't catch it.

I don’t need your attitude thanks, I have one of my own!

If you shop at Von's and you use your club card along with the online thing, you need to check your receipt, item by item. We have bought items and they were not charged the sale price. No problem when you bring back your receipt and show the items mis-priced, they will refund the difference. Just beware and ALWAYS check your receipt.

Sort of on the same subject: I just re-upped my verizon cell phone, with "free" phones after a mail-in rebate. I asked the salesman, just out of curiosity, what percentage of people actually go through and fill out the tedious paperwork required to reeive the rebate. He told me 75% do NOT file for a rebate. Very surprised at that number. 50 bucks is 50 bucks. No wonder they "offer" rebates.

Geezer - They (Verizon) send out a Visa/Citi rebate/debit card. I got mine for $50 in Jan.

Most of that info comes from the American Air Museum in Britain. He wouldn't talk much about that time.

Neither can I BG. Dad was a second lieutenant bombardier in a B-17 with the 351st. They went down 4 times. Twice over water and once on land. The last one was on April 18th 1944 flak set fire to bomb bay and right wing, the crew was forced to bail and the ship force landed in Bergsdorf/Ausbau, NW of Berlin. 9 made it down and one, the tail gunner, was KIA his chute became unharnessed. They became POWS.

I can't imagine the courage it took to strap into a bomber, or make a beach landing while facing such incredible odds, then if you survive do it again tomrrow

I was playing with the LAPD Concert Band at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills when they came over. Did not think to look at my watch, but I am guessing the first pass, from west to east, was about 10:20. They came back over about 10 minutes later.

Watched Lakefront Bargain Hunt? I did. Imagine my surprise when cabin option #3 was the one behind our house, which I watched being renovated from our back deck!

Sorry for being late to the chat box. The aircraft mentioned below were for the various Memorial Day presentations. One of the oldest is in Fullerton going on 78 years. Our scouts planted 4100 flags on Saturday. The planes opened the ceremony and my bride and I walked to the cemetery. Nice event

That's cool! So you knew Orville and Wilbur?
Spent a lot of summer days in Quartz Hill and saw all kinds of interesting things out there. The SR-71 being one of them. Back then not many houses out there and they usually were really low.

Several coworkers were on the restoration teams. Shortly before I retired, they completed the flying wing restore. As a kid, I used to watch those fly at Bolling Field in D.C.
