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.

It's a shame people today don't have the freedom to do the crazy things we did. safer for them but it takes away from what makes life worth living.

I was about three at the time. The Dr. who sewed up my mothers face was the real guy who was the model for TV's fugitive.
The guy who used to have the Yamaha shop on the hill had one in the cathederal city area and Steve /McQueedn lived up near Bob Hope's house and would ride his bike across the empty desert and they would bench race in his shop. His wife would call and he would have to say he wasn't there. There are things women will never understand

I bought my bike from him when he had the small store that was hard to get to . We bought three that day.
I would have loved to meet that bunch Of course Steve McQueen was a God to me. There used to be a race that ended in Fawnskin in the early fifties. We were going to watch it when we wrecked and I lost a brother.

I used to ride with Malcomb Smith in and around Lake Elsinore. The things he could do on a motorcycle were amazing.

I saw some of those Russian trucks up close in Reno. I think they were designed for support in the oil fields. Crazy. Six wheel drive, several tons, and hauling A.

I remember watching Robby Gordon when he was still a teenager, just amazing. Nobody did the things he did. The locals in Mexico are crazy, standing on the side of the race course, very inebrieated, with race cars flying by them at over 100 MPH. Crazy Shat.
