Having one removed is not a sign of no distraction. I have people come in frequently on their work lunch breaks, one or two earbuds in, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a returned order because the person thinks they know what they want then when their food comes out they’re surprised at the ingredients.

Really? If I saw a sign like that it would definitely make me want to go in! Clearly this is the kind of place that values common decency and human interaction.  Aka. my kind of place!

As long as I have your attention when it is warranted, I couldn’t care less if there is something in your ear. Just because you have it in, doesn’t mean you have it on. If there is any indication that your attention is elsewhere (music, phone call), then you are the asshole. Read more

It is a sign of respect and it’s differetn than taking your cap off. There’s a reason the fligth attendant asks you to take them out to listen to emergency row instructions. Because if you have one in, you’re not listening to the other person talking. You’re listening to the ear bud.  And it’s a visual symbol that you Read more

I know it’s not definitively young versus old but we can probably agree that in general, new technologies are liable to be more widely accepted and adopted into day-to-life by the younger subset of the population. That’s all I was implying. Read more

I’d bet the reason for the hardline stance is that a cashier is probably on the 5th person that day wearing earpods, and if the customer with headphones asks for the cashier to repeat something... Read more

This one is probably going to be a young versus old clash to some extent as daily living lifestyle habits shift but I agree with the response; basic civility first. If you have the urge to be a self-important asshole, at least do it after you take your earbuds out.

William. I’m so glad you wrote this review as I LITERALLY just picked up an XV20 about a week ago. I got it from a buddy’s mom after the dealership tried to give them $200 for a trade in towards a Ford Fusion Titanium that they picked up. It’s in “Retirement Tan” as my friends call it. And I nabbed this wayward boat

Whole foods has never baked their bread in house. It comes frozen and par-baked like at almost every other store. The only large grocer that actually makes bread from dough is Publix and it’s only some of theirs. A lot of their hot bar stuff and desserts and such are premade as well (whole foods.) I worked there for a Read more

I know what you mean.  My ex gf was in the natural foods/nano space back in the day, and them getting their products in Costco was much more valuable to them than WF.

A cheap cassette adaptor works well too, especially if you live somewhere that finding a free FM station is impossible.

Amazon and Walmart have similar business models: put the onus of cutting costs on the supplier through demanding cheaper products and tighter margins, modifying terms and increasing chargebacks. (I work for a company that sells through both.) They are necessary evils. Until you decide they’re not necessary, I guess.

I worked at a food company that sold specialty food through Amazon. We were constantly at risk of going out of business based on what changes Amazon decided to roll on us, whether it was refusing to buy product at the price we had set, or creating new digital requirements seemingly designed just to be missed and apply Read more

ehhhhh sorry to burst your bubble but WFM has been on a downward trend for nearly 20yrs in terms of quality. I speak as a former employee, and can attest that most of what people thought they liked about WFM was/is smoke and mirrors.

Allegra coffee? Utter trash
Produce? Overpriced, poor quality, and LOTS of Read more

No one dusts anything over 5'8". Doorways are all  too commonly too low and I am forever bumping my head on a variety of things that are too low hanging. You’re damn right my 6'4" self is oppressed.
