    clearance price sign said 9.97 but the item rang up at 12.99.

    really felt like i 'worked' for that SCOP
    Well done for sticking it out.

    resurrecting this old chestnut of a thread to pay homage to a poor misguided pet fish who probably gambled that the grass ( well the water ) was greener on the other side of his tank!
    It wasn't....poor soul! Advice to the inhabitants of that joint. Either cover your fish tank or cover your boiling pots of soup!

    Poor fish. What a way to go...

    The restaurant, if in Canada, would not pass inspection. Pet fish or live animals, can't be in the same place as cooked food that customers would eat.

    While not specifically for pets, I believe that there are some Roadkill cafes operating in Canada.

    In the description below it says " A pet fish in a restaurant in Anhui, China, " so yeah, NOT allowed in Canada.

    For a few months, I've been looking for the existence of a certain someone's gift registry. Today, I have found it but it needs a password. Am thinking did the registry just get activated on the weekend or this week? I have been on that site several times and done variations on the names with no matches for 2023 results.

    I also ran the names on other registry sites in case those stores' items are on the "hidden" registry. No luck for me. Sigh. Well I have ideas should I wish to buy gifts in July.

    Went to Wendys for lunch and saw a biker in his jacket eating with a young girl, I presume it was his daughter. The colours were for the Hells Angels, Edm chapter. What a scumbag, to parade his colours in public. Hopefully, his daughter will learn that her father is a member of the most notorious organized crime gang in Canada. With luck, she will be ashamed of him and refuse any recognition of a man who hurts so many others.

    when Fed Ex slaps a card on your screen door saying you were not home!! You were home but in the basement. There was never a ring of the doorbell. Nowhere on the card is there a time entered as to when they were here?? The phone number to inquire about delivery will not let you advance to speak to a human UNLESS they recognize the tracking number you give from the delivery card.
    According to this virtual telephone robot my number was not in the system yet which probably means the delivery person was here a very short time ago.
    ( as in I just missed him/her? )
    GRRRRRRR! yeah, they sent me an email now saying they will attempt again tomorrow. So unless I'm sitting right at the open door during the entire 3 hour window,
    I probably won't catch the delivery person.
    Fun!!!

    update on the Fed Ex nightmare. A new email says I must pick up the parcel?! No explanation why they have decided NOT to make a 2nd delivery as promised.
    Took a telephone miracle but I somehow got hold of a REAL live human! They discovered the reason for the no 2nd attempt. I owed DUTY apparently!?

    Why Fed Ex couldn't have simply said that in their updated email? I was able to pay the duty over the phone but of course now there is no way I'll get the damn parcel today and they don't deliver on weekends. Then Monday is the Day for Truth and Reconciliation Stat so no delivery on that day either! Grrrrrr.

    A heads up about some brands of Cold Brew Coffee.
    This morning when i shopped I bought a large bottle of unsweetened Stok brand ( green label ) 1.42 L size.
    Just before I opened it I happened to see the nutrition label and as I looked it over I see 10 calories and 2 grams carbs in a single puny 8 oz serving!

    WTF??! Black coffee is a freebie, every dieter knows this and relies on it. I phoned the 1-800 # and was told by a CS rep that the " natural flavours "
    they put in this brew probably has some form of sugar in it.
    Well thanks for nothing! The bottle will be returned for a refund tomorrow.
    GRRRR.

    @walkonby , it is shocking what you will find in some prepackaged foods.

    I cannot remember which brand it is but there is one brand of Orange Juice that has sodium, it isn't a high amount but still. I wouldn't even have thought to look but Mom asked me to check the sugar content and I saw it had sodium, I checked 3 or 4 others and Sodium was not listed.

    @SassyAshley upon posting an inquiry to the Food and Drug Administartion about my concern I read something in the ingredient list called
    Dipotassium Phosphate. I Googled and a few tabs popped up.


    Why is dipotassium phosphate in drinks?

    Due to its buffering properties, dipotassium phosphate is frequently used as an 'acidity regulator`. It's used particularly to prevent acidic coffee (with its low pH) from lowering the pH of coffee drinks
    to a degree that would result in the 'feathering' (splitting or precipitation) of the plant-based drink.

    So when the Cold Brew coffee people brag about how the coffee is never bitter, it's not so much of their
    amazing slow brew process, it's because they add a chemical in there to ensure there is no bitterness.
    I feel duped once again.....lol.

    This cannot only be happening to me ...can it? I've not been able to login, no...make that I cannot even get the PC Optimum page to come up.
    This has been happening since noon yesterday ( Oct 20th )
    Refresh, clear the cache, restarted my computer. Nothing opens their main page.
    I finally got through to their CS phone number and was told I was not the only person reporting this glitch. Um...o.k. then...so fix it right?

    Down Detector does seem to show there is a big issue.

    After my shop at NF this morning ( got 2 x $10.00 off discount coupons and 2 x Lindt Excellence 70% cacao FREE! ) I did not get the points on one of my offers.
    No problem, I usually just put in a missing points inquiry. But to do that I needed to re-check the offer to make sure I read it correctly.
    Nope, still cannot get into the site at all.

    GRRRR!
