Why do I have to complete a CAPTCHA?
Other brands take a more specific approach to their marketing and don't purchase airtime on TV or radio because they target their ad dollars more tightly, say in the AARP publications, mass market women's mags or publications devoted to certain hobbies. Can't you see his beard that he forgot to shave under his chin? Keep in mind that that document has been undergoing preparation for months and therefore the plan to steal money from depositors in Canada has been under consideration for months as well. Went to the wendys on south fort hood st. Pension,separate health care plans, and , yeah, those insider tips from your former buddyes, Congres, Senate, State Departments.
As the Arctic melts the low lying inner plains of Canada and the northern plains of the US will be submerged. Find some high ground in the foothills of the East or West Cordillias. If you live in California, get above 5, feet. Anyone attempting to migrate during the Aftermath, after the fact, will perish along the way.
Lots of rain drought … what drought , conservative people except Seatle and when SHTF the rest of us will just eat them , several big rivers full of fish, hudge elk, good growing season mmmmm apples and blackberries , hydro power, wood… lots of wood, masive wheat feilds, winerieys, no income tax, great beaches aww those razer clams , Pretty free gun ownership well Seatle can be a chalange but remember we will just eat them.
Keep preping and stay safe. Later I will post my recipie for Baked Liberal with Blackberry sauce…. I live in Tucson and have been scouting various areas while growing up here. I agree Tucson is turning into a cesspool of villainy but there are many outlying areas with close water tables and good fertile soil and not to mention great solar insolation.
Look to north of Catalina, around Patagonia Sonoita, the Dragoons etc. I worked in the Solar field and have installed many a solar array, wind turbines and solar water collectors on these lands plus, if you harvest rainwater and utilize solar properly you can live well and see them coming for miles. One last thing, the Tohono O odam people have survived off the very same land for hundreds of years.
It would behoove Southeastern AZ preppers to learn from them. Just my 2 cents. You are correct and I have been looking at some good land available there with water as you suggest. When energy supplies are cut the zombies will not have wheels. I live in Northern Az. I grow a garden year round. Myself and my neighbors 10 city blocks away all have pigs, goats chickens etc. I have access to a well. I have fruit trees, grapes, berries etc. With the exception of the pacific northwest, the entire west, in fact every thing west of the Mississippi, ranges from moderate to severe to extreme drought conditions for now and the foreseable future.
Western Montana is o. But the rest of ther west is skectchy at best. Not much water in Arizona. My choice is the Pacific Northwest where rainwater collection provides enough water for all but a couple months of the year. I think filling a pond would do the rest for watering a garden.
Use cold frames for early starts and winter vegetables. And lots of wood for fuel. The Pacific Northwest is a cataclysm waiting to happen. Those sources include the biblical prophets and Revelations.
These predictions, when coupled with scientific research and current events, should give any fool a reason to pause and reflect. Must a present day prophet live in a cave and eat honey and locusts for the Lord to show him His plan? The Lord does as He wills. So whether one reads Cayce, Shipton, Scallion, Zeta Talk, Nostradamus, or the prophets, one can learn something if one is willing to keep an open mind.
They all provide their particular perspective of future events, and only a fool would not recognize the similarities between them. Accept what resonates with you and leave the rest for others to evaluate on their own. I suggest you read:. Not a good area to be camped out in.
The ones that get through and have the means, could eventually make it to the western foothills of the Rockies. I for one, would be heading in that direction. Anything having to do with a huge Sunami and Atlantic Ocean levels rising could cause a mass exodus towards the eastern foothills and mountains of the Apps. That is a scenario I plan for and dread.
California only has about million people. I just go with the bible… oh and my house is made of concrete and tridi panel….
I live about 50 miles from the summit of Mt. Hood as the crow flies. I could walk that far if necessary. Yes, magic and all magic is B. Nothing more than slight of hand to fool the weak minded and children. So you see what you want to see. So are you a christian who believes in end-time biblical prophecy or just a general fear monger who tries to piece it all together from any source possible?
Many, many good people, some Christian, some not; have experienced visions of future events as they are filtered through their particular perspective.
I believe in Jesus Christ because I have been out of the body and in the Spirit and face to face with Him. I know that He yearns for US a a lover yearns for His beloved. I believe in Jesus Christ because He heals me when I am sick, inspires me when I am discouraged, and guides me when I am uncertain.
I have a personal relationship with my Creator. In the day, when I call, He answers me speedily. My God is an awesome God. While I know that the devil exists, because I have been face to face with him too, I do not dwell upon him, or define everything in life by him; as you apparently do.
Congratulation on your ministry, but there are many men of the cloth, even scholars, who do not know Jesus because they have never met Him. I suggest you spend less time converting people and more time in prayer getting to know the Lord face to face; so that your testimony can be a true witness of the spirit rather than repeating the same, tired phrases, originating within a specific belief system. I also mentioned the scientific evidence that points to the coming Changes; and if you were to do your homework, you would know the truth of what I speak.
The many that are lost may not listen to a religious interpretation of coming events, but they may be open to a secular presentation that might lead them to a better understanding of scripture and then conversion. Man on the inside. There is no way on earth you have a high level job. One thing I can say about the government people is they can write. Aside from your spelling hudge is huge, chalenge is challenge, wineerieys is wineries, seatle is Seattle.
The post you made below is equally as terrible. It is not hellans is Helens. To should be too as in also. To the store and can I come too is a good way to remember it. Read them all, long ago and far, far away. JQP; I do too and He cannot come soon enough for me. No one but the weak minded and children believe in magic.
Cayce was a fake just like the rest. Have you ever experienced being gang raped? Have you experienced giving birth? Have you ever experienced eating a mango, fresh from off the tree? Have you ever experienced a trip to the moon? The first one is 20 miles out just past the fish hatchery on Magic is for fools and children.
I prefer the Appalachian Trail. Plenty of wild foods, water, and shelter. Easier to move unseen and to keep your AO floating. Have only hiked about half of the trail. Started in NY went south but not the whole way. Spent a bit more then three months hiking, much fun.
The banjos and the scene where they make the man squeal like a piggy. Then Burt shot him with the arrow. Being in the foothills of the appalachian mountains brings a quiet to our souls, would not want to be anywhere else.
Be sure and pick some wild blueberries… they are excellent! AZ has plenty of water if you know where to look. The well that supports our community is ft. Many underground streams and aquifers did I spell that right.
If you know where to look and have 4 wheel drive, no problem. Depends on what part of the state. Over by Seligman it can be found at less than feet. As a child, I was all about the baskets of colored eggs, new clothes for church, and the candy. Oh yea the candy.
Hyped up more than usual from the candy, the egg hunts after church were fun. Egg hunts at the grandparents house with the cousins were fun. The whole event was fun. This thing called easter. Later in life, the real reason for the celebration was beginning to set in. The crosses draped with purple and scarlet.
The Communion service at church. The story of the Crucifixion. The rising from the tomb and the last days of Jesus Christ on earth.
Then the period where most people are today. No church, no story about Jesus and the Crucifixion, no Communion. Just easter as another commercialized celebration and colored stuff for kids. Some, are like I was for twenty years or so; Just another day on the calendar, with possibly a day off from work, and better yet if it was a paid holiday. Now, as an older adult it has become Passover to me.
Passover, as a celebration of Jesus and his life, death and Resurrection. Passover, as biblical truth and reality of the humbleness, compassion, and love that came from that ultimate Sacrifice, for each and every one of us.
More so than anything else, it was an act of love from our Heavenly Father by giving us the best He had to offer to us, His most precious gift, His only Son. With that gift came the opportunity to have an eternal life of love, peace and a monthly renewing of spirit and love from our Saviour in that eternal kingdom; whom once gave all He had in this worldly life, for our redemption of sin.
The way i view and celebrate this Passover Celebration, the Highest of annual Sabbaths, is best summed up by the words of a song:. His destiny was Calvary His mission would not fail He would build this Church on a rugged cross With three ole rusty nails.
Though the world may come against it But they will not prevail He built this Church on a rugged cross And three ole rusty nails. Who may build this building tall But it will be so frail Compared to this Church that Jesus built With three ole rusty nails.
I for one am not going to get caught short this weekend. The North Korea deal is getting out of hand very quickly. Nor do I believe at this point he has the food to sustain them at this point of readiness. If he is going to act it will be this weekend. I would say between 9: This is all speculation on my part but some thing to watch for. I would not be surprised either if Iran hit Israel at the same time.
To top it off I would also be looking for a very major cyber attack to knock out our power grid and banking at the same time. Again, I am just speculating but am preparing for the worst. Already have the feed and cages for both. By the way you can get a great deal on dried corn and rolled oats at the feed store not to mention the antibiotics that are also available.
He knows it and so do we. Iran is another paper tiger, always has been and always will be. Besides, Isreal has nearly nuclear warheads and could literally wipe them off the map. I did 6 years in the Marines as a Farsi translator, and it was Iraq that invaded Iran on the heels of the Islamic Revolution when Khomeini had purged most of his officer corps and the US had cut off supplying parts for advanced weapons systems. Iranians tend to think in shades of gray, rather than the black and white thinking of Americans.
There is a huge demographic of young, overeducated, underemployed people that might respond with favor to better relations with the west. Our growing involvement in Syria helps them deflect some internal resentment our way.
Tough to say what happens there. Israel is another issue. Israel will not tolerate nuclear neighbors. Iran is close enough for Israel to hit them hard to pre-empt any nuclear adventure. That is a very dangerous scenario. Its that Axis of Evil thing. Soul will be destroyed by his artillery. One US cruise missile sub with high explosive weapons can suppress the threat from the North rather quickly once the first shot is fired.
Kim Jong Idiot the Younger is throwing a huge temper tantrum, but his people are starving and China seems to have gotten tired of being his nanny. He has to do something to save face, but has a limited number of options.
I wonder if anyone truely knows exactly what this lil nutbar actually has in the way of weapons? He has ten thousand long range artillary pieces trained on Seoul.
If he fired the first shot and started to shell the city, he could reduce it to ruble before a serious response and counter attack could be launched.
A surprise first strike of missiles could cause severe damage to US bases in SK with the loss of many US lives, but the response would relieve Dear Leader of any further management responsibilities.
Intelligence briefings that I read suggest that he will limit an attack to SK islands rather than the SK mainland; generating a tit for tat response from SK. She said something to the effect that there are 10, North Korean artillery pieces pre-sighted on Seoul and any attempt at a military strike would invite brutal NK retaliation against the south. NK is tolerated for the sake of South Korean relations, and because China acts as sort of an embarrassed older brother when NK gets out of hand.
The problem is that Seoul is so close to the border that artillery can reach it quite easily. Rumor has it that NK plans on unloading around half a million rounds on Seoul and sending troops across. How can he threaten this, and not follow through, without looking like a huge wimp, because, apparently with this generational dictator, image is everything.
He sure has painted himself into a corner where he is going to have to either do it or be the laughing stock of Asia and the Middle East.
Because unlike here in America where our politicians have no ethics, convictions or morals over there they pay attention to that kind of thing. Yea, I agree with that assessment. The only way he, KJU gets out of this idiotic move on his part, and save any semblance as a leader; he gets the UN to offer some type of reward or treaty as a deterrent to his threats. If he gets some sanctions dropped or an aid package with food and medicine at the forefront, he will be seen as the victor by his people.
Otherwise it could spell the beginning of the end for this porky pig character. All that radioactivity has to go somewhere. I may get some chickens. But no need to get rabbits. I have them all over, not to mention the turkey that came through my yard yesterday and the doe that was here a couple of days ago.
BigB I am raising 4 baby rabbits right now. My dog found the nest under my back porch. They are precious and I cannot see how anyone can eat something so cute.
That cracks me up. I know exactly what you mean. When I first started raising sheep I bought two black faced twin brothers, named them Beavis and Butthead. When it came time to butcher them we had to have a family meeting. My youngest son who was about 13 at the time thought we should keep them around because they were part of the charm of the farm. They died about 10 years later from old age. Worked well until the pig we raised thought his name was Pig. A pound plus pig is not a pet.
I cried till I had a piece of bacon. Then I thanked God for his bounty. Amen BigB I was raised on a farm and had a pet of each animal we raised. My Dad killed one of my pets by mistake. Mama fried it up and no one at the table would eat any of it. I was small and crying alligator tears..
Those two would roost on my shoulder. I had made them a house out of a cardboard box with doors, windows. I will take your advice and not name anything eatable again. Have a great day. When i was about 7, my Dad decided to raise a pig. We went to the neighbors and bought a piglet. We named her Susie and built a lot with everything she needed. Dad kept a path mowed to the lot and my little brother would ride his tricycle there and hang out.
He disappeared one day and we went crazy looking for him. We found him, on his tricycle, asleep with his arms hanging inside her lot. She was now a hog. That winter they had her slaughtered. I will never forget the first meal of tenderloin. Way too many trusted experts in the financial world are saying this is a trial balloon.. The Framers need the bankers and always will.
I am selling all my shit and I am putting all my money into tin foil futures. I am going to make a killing off walter and sterling. I suggest you do the same. Want to get married and have smart reasonable babies? The guy is like a psycho…. I bet he enjoys bouncing little children on his knee. Right… sure… because constitutionalists really dig on having an Islamic Theocracy at home.
Is it THE it or a little it. You kids stay away from it. What the fuck is it? I love it when the naysayers say, you worry to much, leave the fear porn alone and get on with your life. And here you have financial experts who are boldly proclaiming the shit is going to hit the fan at anytime now.
Yet the media and their puppets keep saying stop worrying over nothing…sheesh. Then it will be our turn. Gives us time to get our own financial houses in order. Europe will happen first, I concur. History is repeating right before our eyes…. The government will require retirement account managers to buy treasuries. Your whole k will be filled with worthless government debt. Like government debt that will never be repaid. Barn Cat and Mr.
An economist named Teresa Ghilarduci suggested that ks be managed by the government back in or , just before I retired and got me to thinking about what I could do to void that. All existing plans would be assimilated into this, including Roths. As a side note: They WILL go after, co-opt private retirement. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
The runs on EU banks, and rising Unemployment in those countries is a forerunner to what is coming to our shores. I will guarantee one thing, there are at least ten men and women for every one that is speaking out now; that will come out with a vengeance if the gov starts coming after their money, guns, and land.
We will not lay down and play stupid like the folks in GB and Austrailia did. We will not let a few, determine the outcome for the many. Yea, there will be segments, especially in and around the cities where it will be hell, and many will give up or give in; but the masses of rural folks will ban together until the great one comes on the scene to make everything all better. Then the dividing begins, as to who has studied and learned the Word, and those who have not.
The dividing will be of those that believe in the fake, and those that know better. Then there comes into play that little thing called the mark of the beast. So subtle and charming like a snake with a little bird, and then WHAP!
Not this daddy rabbit. I know who comes first. Waiting on the arrival of He who was arisen from the tomb. More guns have been legally sold here since the buyback than were removed from the system, and that does not include the ones that got lost on that canoeing trip. They never took our guns off us, just made us register the ones we had.
The ability to remove all of those guns in a single action does not exist, and the second they start i expect there will be the biggest spate of burglaries ever seen.
There is a recalcitrant streak and lack of tolerance for bullshit here that runs very deep, and we lack the brown shirt agencies like TSA and DHS. Our next election could be interesting. Good to hear it Eagle eye. Stay strong, and watch out for those danged dingos. I finally saw the movie, just this weekend, about all the mess created towards the family that had the baby carried off by a dingo in A Cry In The Dark.
On this Good Friday many years ago, the war was won. Not scared of the first death. AZ Ready are you a police officer? If so what sort of sense do you get from the local law enforcement around here? OMG, me a cop?
No I am not a LEO. Stuff your pockets with lead shot and go swimming, you will meet your God. The very fact you are still alive means you agree with me. Whatever happened to Miss September. An old bag now, but she was sure hot back in the early seventies..
Hate to tell you this Paranoid. But one day you will have a date with God, as we all will. Hope you will have changed your heart and mind before then. The god of Jacob is associated with animal sacrifice, endentured seritude, marshal law and extra-national usury. Yeah, but we are talking about bunnies as efficient prolific meat producers and eggs for eating or hatching into chickens. And when you run make sure you have an M1 Garand and 4 bandoleers full of 8 round en-bloc clips.
Have supplies cached in the hills. A pistol belt with 2 canteens with cups for cooking, with the belt supported with an H harness. Picked up a used Woods Master and found some 8rd metal mags.
Adjusted the mags taking out the slop in mag well. Ran a combat shoot and all worked fine. No bayonet lug;0 Could not afford a Garand but this Woods Master is close enough. Lite web gear is the way to go.
Do you know where it came from? Happy Easter to you and yours! Had to take a break for a few days, as I felt like I was becoming traumatized with all the info, and what is going on all over the world! Only had to wait at the border for 1 hr, as lots of people were crossing today….. Hubby needed a mini vacation anyway,and is able to drive for an hour or so, think it gives him a feeling of independance too! I was here then, and could NOT get home for a few days……think the lineup at the boarder then was in miles!
Wish you all the Best!! In the meanwhile look into the abyss for the shortest periods you can…it looks BACK into you as well and therein lies the problem…look away whenever you need to, others HERE are watching all the time. The NK thing is less of a concern to me than many several other things I can think of, for a couple of reasons.
Secondly, — to my knowledge — there are something on the order of 14 Aegis-class cruisers in the Pacific. Each of those can accurately eliminate incoming missles up to miles away…even in the orbital phase. Hence, no real threat. This does make the situation for South Korea somewhat perilous. I read something this AM that indicated — via a SK liason — that NK was capable of laying down , artillery shells on Seoul in two hours time.
Colorado just passed uncostitutional gun control laws. Cancel all contracts with Colorado. Why would I go back down? Already live in the mountains of East TN. Took an inventory of ammo yesterday — looking OK. Working on food stock and plans for remaining isolated. The wife went to the bank today and took an additional 5K out to put in the gun safe. The teller talked to her and expressed her concerns that we are headed to the same action as Cyprus.
We are going to start moving large sums out to invest elsewhere. Pondering pulling out all my k and IRA to pay off my land. Own it free and clear. You might as well get a lawyer because the system is rigged. I am caught up in a tax quagmire right now. I had no choice but to give it to a tax specialist. So, how would you like to go to a doctor who is held to no standards of care, and for whom you had no recourse, even if you had an acute heart attack and the doctor elected to treat you by the medieval practice of blood letting?
The court throws the case out on summary judgment in favor of these 4 attorneys. Apparently, trying to sue lawyers, you can not get a trial by a jury, and I suspect this is what will happen with the government in the future. Truly, a WROL situation. That is why I would not recommend going to an attorney. You could just as well be paying for bad, or even disasterous advice. Something like a REIT. You may be able to get it into some actual physical property that you can put yourself on tho.
I looked in to that with a tax person and was effectively going to lose about half of what was in the account. Not only that it was going to throw me into a higher tax bracket where they would take even more. Same concerns about current value of small IRA account.. This would give it up for me. We are considering a pull out or patial pull out as well. Already in process of pulling all of savings accounts at this point.
Hopefully they can provide you with some ideas. There are so many ways to hndle this. And taking all the money out would definitely screw me in the tax bracket department. I just recently stopped all ontributions to the k to get more scrap silver and bullion. Remember all that you have or have not, others will be after. Silver might be a better deal.
Besides that silver is very rare. There is many times more gold than there is silver out of the ground. A gold to silver ratio of 50 to 1 is more likely based upon MARKET demand, as the rich flee to gold in times of crisis.
Silver is most useful as an industrial metal which is why the price is manipulated because just a little bit makes really cheap plastic valuable as an electronic device. Silver is not rare and is mined in Mexico where there are large silver deposits and cheap labor. Silver is a by-product of copper production. No one should expect to get rich speculating in silver; but all preppers should own silver, and as much as they can reasonably afford after their other preps are assured.
What you say is true, but new technologies will be replacing silver in electronics in the not too distant future. Big Mining will want silver coins again but the gangster banksters will want digital. Who do you think will win THAT battle? Invest in gold, speculate with silver, and hoard your lead. I would suggest discussing this with a financial advisor. My wife did it. Half of what is your is better than nothing…and I can spend it now on preps. My drive is about half of yours.
Hope you have a close network there, if not time could be running out to establish one. I made sure I delegated enough gold or silver to pay for at least three years worth of property taxes, my acreage is paid off. I live in wonderful greater suburban area in New England. But here i do and some farmers are considering the idea of selling their land and just rent it. So very rich people are now buying thhe land of farmers who cant afford to pay all the taxes signing 15 years contracts on it to keep farming at a reasonable price.
Yes but 15 years from now will the rent still be reasonable? Basically we are going back hundreds years when a few aristocracts were owning all the land and the people who worked on it.
I have been thinking about it. I visited Argentina shortly after the crisis, in , with one euro you could pay a whole dinner. A lot of people looked hungry, i saw very old cars running in the streets with broken parts. You know who had brand new cars and a fat belly under clean clothes? At the end if i should give an advice to someone who wants to know how to survive in hard times i would tell him to join the police, better at state or federal level. They will be the last ones the goverment stops paying if it runs short of money, and anyway the only ones who will be allowed for sure to go around armed.
But if serving the Beast goes against your moral principles then the essential thing to have is firearms and ammo. It would be this time too because the zombies and the grazers do not own any land: I stopped contributing beyond the company match years ago.
When the market hit all time highs, I pulled the trigger. Finally, I got taxed when I took the money out. My cash sits in my bank while for the next few days while I prepare to wire it out for something shiny.
Whatever you decide, make up your mind quickly and act. I have been trying to convince my wife to leave Tampa for my home state of Oregon. My family owns property on an island and that is about as good a shot as there is to ride this out in relative safety.
If it were up to me I would foreclose my home to get out of it and leave in the next month. Because others must be considered…I must be more patient in my preparations. I am looking at silver, water collection, storage and purification. Florida is going to be a bad place to be when the economy collapses.
I just wish I had woken up 6 months ago, or 2 years ago…. Only one of my friends takes this seriously. If you are in the bay area and looking to compare notes shoot me an email. The same issues here. You have to make 2 or more correct calls now very difficult to do instead of just one correct one to time the market to dodge the BS the government and Wall St are throwing at you.
I missed getting back in the market at the bottom…because I just could not believe the FED would be able to goose the markets the way it has with the fundamentals so obviously degrading. There are other criteria that must be met, but at least the money would not be in a bank, sitting, waiting to be thieved! You must have enough remaining money after said purchase to cover any additional expenses that crop up in the future — taxes, repairs, etc.
So if you bought a parcel of land, there would be no repair fees unless the land was improved. The land would be your retirement investment and would need to be sold at some point — maybe age 70 and maybe sold to you from your retirement fund. Great post and one that illustrates the idiocy of some posters on this board. You can however transfer some of the money you put into your K into an IRA. You can only own the real estate.
This is a color-of-title issue. The US is a corporation opporating under bankruptcy. Look into the self-directed IRA thing. It may help you avoid the tax hit. Some reader on this site may be able to guide you. You can convert to an annuity and avoid the taxes while using the income to pay off the land. Not the best choice with interest rates so low but it will help save on taxes up front. At least move to a state with no income tax to save the state part when cashing out the K..
I heard people all over the globe are pulling their funds just to teach the bank a lesson for being thieves. We are traveling in a very desolate land now, and have come to a cross road. Behind us on the road we have been traveling on, there is a fierce storm on that horizon with a large cloud of dust billowing up in front of it. Straight ahead down that road nothing to the horizon either, what do we do, where do we go?
If we go LEFT or RIGHT down those roads, we know that we will be fighting what looks to be very strong and tricky cross winds, so the only way we have left is straight ahead, at least we will have a tail wind to push us along. What shall it profiteth a man to inherit the wohole world but lose his soul. Say as uou will, but I for one will put my trust in the one that is above all.
It is coming and there is not a lot we can do to prevent it. Continue to pray for the best. Dear Lord, I thank You for being so kind, so gracious, and so merciful. Thank You for loving me, and allowing me to be able to see and to hear this morning.
You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me. Forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you. Please keep me safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day, to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.
Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over. Let me continue to see sin through your eyes and acknowledge it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive forgiveness for my trespasses. Continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Keep me strong that I may help the weak.
Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others. I pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood.
But I thank You that I believe. I believe that You can change people, and that You can change things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers. For each and every family member in their households. I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.
I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than You are. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly. Thanks for posting this prayer. Forwarded this prayer to my list. This is very comforting to read. Forgive the many errors that I made yesterday, and let me try again dear God, to walk closer in Thy way.
This is taped to my bathroom mirror with a beautiful picture of Jesus above it. This is the start of each new for me. Prices at the grocery store are unbelievable! And food costs almost as much at the grocery store as it does in a restaurant! THIS is how they are going to get us. I just wanna say, I really love your name. Our local Food Lion had hams on sale for 79 cents a pound.
I bought some and had the butcher cut them all into ham steaks. I now have a whole lot of ham steaks in the freezer at a much cheaper price than the store was charging. Beans and Weenies at savealot store— if you have one —were. But, they are good. A basic precept of the Sikh religion is that they must be armed at all times and stand ready to fight injustice in the world.
The Sikh temples in the east are islands of freedom in a cesspool of Islam. Sikhs are very decent people. They are the good guys. The world is turning into a cesspool of Islam. If someone tells me Islam is a religion of Peace, I loose respect for you. Ghandi was part of the British war machine in WWI. He held a good deal of racism against blacks in SA. I rarely agree with your rhetoric, but I am with you on this. Anyone who knows anything about the Sikhs knows they are the good guys. Ignorant people assume they are muslims and treat them accordingly.
They can be formidable enemies. Rogers can go frack himself. He and his buddy Soros were instrumental in the destruction of this country through deindustrialization. But as you do we will rob your nation while you invest in us through the use of co-developments schemes, industrial espionage, and disrespecting intellectual property laws. You can make money but we China and others will use traders like yourselves to steal technology at the expense of the United States citizens.
We have no loyalty. Let it be destroyed and we will move all the production we can to Asia so you can steal all you want. Just make us rich. Dude is an arse. I must admit that I have particular distain? Rather, by default, i. No that was George H. Bush who cut the deal for his buddies with China. Then his son, GWB stuck the knife in OUR backs and allowed 42, factories and 60 million jobs to be off shored; gutting the middle class.
I do blame them all. But it was the Bush boys who put the nails in OUR coffin. We been down this street many times. Or did they leave during the GWB administration? Just answer the question. Just answer the question! Yes the jobs left under George Bush as he wanted them to do. Who put their signature on the agreements that guaranteed for it to happen a few months before leaving office?
Bush would come before labor and have stones thrown at him while the very same ignorant fools embrace Clinton still listening to his advice. Blaming Bush or Obama is like blaming the guy re-arranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
He certainly hurt us, did not help us, but it was going to happen anyway thanks to the decline of values and lack of national will. I truly believe people must leave urban areas. The suburbs have a few things going for them but with the probability that there will be an influx of urban-manics, the burbs will best succeed with strong community ties, cooperation amongst one another, and gardens everywhere.
Heading for the hills, per se, is the best advice and those who can get out of a concentrated population and into a rural area will do the best.
But this article morphed from getting into the hills into getting into real estate, ie farming. There are a few issues I have with the claim that farmers are going to be wealthy businessmen and landowners. Yes, the top tiers are: And one of these will grow bigger and more powerful and the other one is destined to die by the hands of the Feds. Both the large ranches and the small farms over 50 acres, less than acres will be gone in the near future due to the inheritance taxes.
So unless there are legal loopholes to protect rightful heirs from these larger parcels perhaps the only salvation will be through family corporate farming , the lands will be sold in whole to corporate farms or divided into parcels for development or smaller farms. Then there is the onslaught of Agenda 21 which has a stronghold in most states covertly wrapped up inside the Comprehensive Planning regs. A TDR is a cash payment to a farmer from a developer or government to have the exclusive development rights to his land upon sale or death.
Implementing the TDRs into comprehensive planning will force all of those wealth-hungry, unsuspecting farmers into killing their farm for that money up-front. You might wonder why farmers are so interested in TDRs in the first place — well, money for a written promise is so easy to do…. Forget making big wads of money right now — keep investing wisely in yourself and your own. Preserve what you have, take necessary steps to shore up your base, and get ready to hunker down.
JOG had an excellent post in the last article about the New Dawn. Will these people really get the resources they need through State-run farms or Big Ag? Or will they get their resources from a local source or from their own small plot of land? The best bet is to find a small parcel and start working your own land unless you already are.
To do that, first define what is truly important to you and yours. The rest falls into place. Get a small parcel of decent land in the country and become self-reliant. I really want to get out of Tampa and back to my family in Oregon, but my wife and her folks are not crazy about the idea.
I think cities will be the wild west when it all falls apart and the best chance is in smaller, more remote communities. Work hard to convince your wife that the time is drawing near. There are enough articles and videos on the WWW to help illustrate your point.
Any chance of a trip to look at property? Z, the big sticking point is her parents. What kind of a man would I be if I deserted them? She is a woman of many virtues but cannot imagine a change to the current paradigm. We are upside down in our house but I have a little money and a few essentials in storage. I am confident about our chances once we hit the road. The trick is to get out before anyone else does. Roy, find some of the alternate routes as a backup plan to GOOD if those 2 main roads were closed.
Please call me or contact me. If it is true, WHY? Wendys in Swansea Ma. Due to Diabetes I requested a large diet coke, this was confirmed twice when asked before receiving my order, young male handed me the drink with smirk on his face which now I do believe was due to him knowing he intentionally handed me a full large sugared drink.
Due to not feeling well and having had nothing to eat or drink since prior day I began drinking the soda while driving home. My vision began to significantly decline to the point of having trouble judging vehicle distance and lights appeared as blurred starburst patterns, I realized that the soda had no diet taste and in fact tasted like fully sugared coke and this had caused my vision difficulties as well as the potential to cause me other medical complications.
I filed complaint, store offered to give me two complimentary combos, I went in personally to pick up and manager spoke with me pretending to care about the prior actions. However when he went behind counter his behavior indicated the exact opposite, he appeared to be behaving offensively with his back turned facing his employees and at that point I knew how disingenuine he was. The food was handed to me and upon returning home it was discovered that burger was in fact hard as a rock and completely raw inside.
This was malicious, and a blatant health code violation which could again seriously harm a customer and yet they continue to keep their jobs and get away with such actions. There is absolutely no excuse and fast food employees have no right to cause any harm to customers and their age is no excuse. This morning I went to went on Kingston Ave Chester, Virginia for a 10 piece nugget, a large fry and drink.
First I went through the drive thru. The girl came on the speaker to ask if I wanted to try the chicken tender combo. I preceded to order.
She said nothing else. It was complete silence for about 60 seconds. I come in and the girl asked me was I ready to order and that someone pulled out of the drive thru. I told her that was me. He was on the phone while assisting me and kept giving me hand gestures for cash while he swiped my card repeatedly. When I told him I had no cash on me he shrugged his shoulders. No apology from him. He was completely rude. We live in Philadelphia my daughter purchased a chicken sandwich from the location at 15th and Chestnut.
Calling health department on Monday. I usually go through the drive thru but as there was one car there that was taking extremely long to order, I went inside. I had adjusted my visit times to early in the day as the gentleman that works the window in the evening is very unkempt.
He seems to not only be lost most of the time but also could use a shave, shower and clean clothing. As I was saying about going inside this has now changed my mind about visiting this particular restaurant at all. Someone needs to make a visit or the board of health may.
I had my order written down and was reading from my order. I had several orders and was just going to pay for them all together. When I reached the window I asked for a manager, the person wrapping hamburgers came over, he was disinterested. At this point I left the line. I was going to call the GM the next day but after I seen that this behavior was the norm and not the exception I truly believed that my comments would not be valued nor validated.
There is one on Lebanon Church road, where they are friendly, respectful and your order is fast and correct. The customer service was terrible, lady was rude, never say anything polite. You could tell she hated her job. Half my French fries were raw. Took it back in to let them know and they did not seem concerned and did not even ask me if I wanted a replacement so thats why I wanted to give some feedback, since no one seemed to care! Your associate by the name of Erica, very rudely stated that they did not have it.
I stated that it is on the board as a selection. I thought that was extremely rude and she did not apologize for not being able to accommodate my family and me. She also did not make my burger with all the fixings, as I requested. I was asked my name for my order…. I refused… I was told I must! I said number one to avoid giving my name! I was told to give a real name!! My husband and I get there stand in line behind 3 firefighters, and a lady with one child.
It took 25 mins for everyone to get there orders taken then another mins for us to get our food. I ordered an Apple pecan salad and 6 piece chicken nuggets.
The lady that took the orders was trying to make sure everybody had what they needed in there bag but I guess that was taking to much time for the male that was helping. We left got home to eat and there was no pecans or salad dressing in my bag! At this point I am livid and tired and hungry so I called up to the store no answer.
Needless to say I did not eat. Family went to Wendys in Paoli, IN. In the drive thru, ordered 4 meals with 2 burgers having specific items not to be listed.
Received our orders and 2 out of 4 orders were wrong. So we had to get the 2 girls at the windows attention and when we told them these were incorrect.
One girl rolled her eyes and just took them back and other girl tossed our so called fixed bag into car window then slammed the window giving us a dirty look. No apologies or anything. No further conversation out of those rude employees. This particular wendys always gets your order wrong.. But I have not ever had this kind of service before and I am baffled and never attempted to reach a corporate office due to rude employees before now.
I am so upset at the way my family and I were treated that we will no longer support this brand. When we got there we were the 2nd people in line.
We stood there for approximately 10 minutes waiting to order. When he came back we placed our order. My wife request n cheese on her burger. We waited with the gentleman who ordered ahead of us for 20 minutes for our food. We had never eaten there before even though it is the closest one to our home.
Not wanting to wait another 20 minutes we just ate it. By this time there were about 30 people standing in line all complaining about the length of time they had to wait to order.
One couple walked out. Yesterday we drove to Newport, TN. Nice juicy hamburger and steaming hot french fries that were crisp. Also the employees were very friendly and willing to help when the soda machine decided not to give us any soda. W ordered the same thing we had gotten in Waynesville and it was like night and day.
Got the potato and it was old, disgusting, and inedible. So ridiculous and demeaning. I was ignored by the staff. I have never been treated so horribly in a fast food restaurant. There seemed to be too many employees in the kitchen, they were literally tripping over one another and laughing and having a grand ol time. The dining room was empty and there were two orders ahead of me being filled at the other end of the counter. The customer service was worse than horrible and honestly I have no idea how they have maintained the franchise.
I work for wendys in Genesee county MI and i tell you everyone that works treated like crap! I have work for this restaurant for about 7 years the past year has been worse! Many managers are underpaid many dm are over paid to do nothing but send emails. There are going to be several managers leaving soon because of the they treated this company is going down.
Iwas at wendys on west ave in jackson michigan. I drove 15 min to get there ordered a apple pecan salad with no bleu cheese. Drove another 15 min very excited to get home to eat, only to open my salad to find bleu cheese. Normally wouldnt complaine but i am highly illergic to dairy.
When i opened the container i breathed in the cheese. Now i have hives and am itchy. And to top it off im still hungry but i know im not wating my money at wendys again cause they could have killed me. When I call ask for my paycheck she says there a week behind in payroll. I just left from Southridge rhl Blvd location south Charleston, wv. I ordered a baconator combo and my burger meat was raw and bloody I called and told the manager about it and she was like what do you want me to do about it.
Denied refund and replacement of my food even after showing her and having receipt. Tamiami Trail in Naples, FL. Knowing that it was NOT yet season here I expected the normal, great meal. My tray was sitting on the counter, with only cold fries on it. I went back to the filithiest mens room i have ever been in. I deceided to wait. Contact me if you got the nerves I dare you to show that you care…. How come this pain in the neck was having a fit—THEN I told her well I will let corporate know and she said go ahead and refused to give me a receipt she also almost forgot our drink with our order but thankfully my son remembered he needed his drink before we pulled off—though my son was extremely disappointed to not get his FROSTY I think she was extremely rude and there was zero excuse for this behavior.
I just can not believe how rude she was!! People that are off work going behind the counter getting things. The only responsible workers are the girl and boy working the drive thru. There needs to be a adult in charge. My husband and my son that has special needs went through the drive-thru and my husband told them to hang on a second because he was trying to figure out what my son wanted.
The personal litetally yelled at my husband. My husband pulled up to the window and asked to speak to the manager. He explained what happened and the manager didnt want to hear it. The people working in the back girl was blowing kisses to my husband while everyone behind the counter was laughing and waving and making fun of my husband while that rude manager yelled to my husband to go somewhere else.
What the hell is going on. This is how a manager and crew Members act? This is aboslutely disgusting. This needs to be investigated look at the cameras. Will never go back and ill make it my mission that everyone knows the story. Went to one of your locations last night in coventry RI, and received the totally wrong order. Just rude, ghetto type employers. Should I cry racism????? Once I approached the window to pay for my order I asked for the Manager.
The male manager was at the window and I told him about the situation. He simply said I have spoken to her and was sorry. I guess customers can get treated anyway and nothing is done about it…….. Like to relay how i was treated and not herd correctly. Surely there was an misunderstanding but how they responed was uncalled for. I used card and the girl didnt finish listening that i wanted to give her cents in change. She looked at me ugly with weird smile. She could have said the card went through with no problems.
While i was waiting: They all were looking at me as i was crazy with a wierd look, on their faces. I reached out to customer care to inform them of the incident. They ensured me someone would reach out to me and compensate me for the incorrect order. I reach back out to them yesterday was on hold for 15 minutes tried again today was on hold for another I decided to leave a voicemail and nobody had the courtesy to even call me back. I will take my business someplace else and tell all my friends to do the same.
Extremely Disappointed that the service from the restaurant and the corporate customer care line. After repeated visits, my requests to have the Frosty filled to the top of the cup remain unsuccessful. He said that it is their standard procedure NOT to fill cups to the top; furthermore, he said he wanted the name of the previous employee who did fill the cup to the top because that employee needed instruction.
Cups are routinely filled about an inch and a half below the top, and they usually contain an air pocket in the bottom; thus, about a third of the product is missing. Is it really necessary to skim off the top in order to increase profits? Had lunch today at your store Being in the retail business myself for over 40 years I know how hard it is to come upon good employees, I think you have a keeper with Jennifer….
I remember the days when you ordered a single with cheese and got exactly what you see in the pictures that are advertised.. Not only were they cold.. Chicken sandwich was dry and old. Fries tasted like they have been sitting there all afternoon.
Will not be coming back!!!! Store Reseda, CA Complaint: I spoke with the Manager Adriana once I discovered hair in my food I called her within 5 minutes of leaving the drive thru. Once I returned I was treated so bad she actually called all the employees to the door as she rudely argued with me and called me a liar.
Then the coworker said Wendy herself put the hair in my food they were laughing at me and the manager referred to me as a XXXXX. Then Manager was speaking Spanish and they all start laughing at me. I am handicapped and I never in my life been treated like this. If you can review the camera at Around 9: Here are the pictures.
I had to request my receipt 4 times. I know that everyone has a bad day from time to time but this woman was down right rude. Apparently she told my son many times to quit being a XXXXX and to suck it up and do his job which at that point in time was dishes.
His hand has been wrapped in an ace bandage until swelling goes down to be casted and from what another employee stated that my son told her that he was doing his dishes and he told her that he would be a little slower in doing so.
She again told him to quit being a XXXXX and my son turned to her, unwrapped the bandage and rapped his knuckles onthe sink to show her that his knuckles were broken. Then he asked her if he was supposed to suck his ownself like a pacifier and not say anything when she repeatedly was calling him a little XXXXX and lazy after he had asked her to stop it. This manager told him if he didnt like it to get off her line and clock off which he did. Your son is a grown man and should behave as such she further said.
She had also threatened to call the police because my son rapped his knuckles on the sink. Now she not only put down my son but then she was putting me down. On raising my own. I am a proud mother of 5 sons. No other manager at this Wendys has ever had an issue with said son and a couple were very surprised at this. Calling me a bad mother in so many words. Telling me my son is lazy after she told me last month that he was a good worker is incredible!
Telling me that he is violent. I hear bad things about your corporate office not doing anything about bad employees but I really hope you do reprimand this person and investigate the matter. There were 2 other male employees that witnessed this tonight , Thursday, August 31, If Wendys doesnt care about what their managers or employees are doing then maybe 2 News needs to hear about it! They were pretty busy and even got one of our sandwiches wrong but the manager quickly resolved the issue and I was was like wow that was awesome and she did a great job!!
As a former Manager for a fast food restaurant I found this very wrong on the managers part I never had a problem with a customer coming to my restaurant with something else as long as they also purchased from my establishment.
I was so upset I wanted to tell the manager that she was wrong for talking to a customer that way! Right out side the entrance door and puffing away at her cigarette her second one since I was at the restaurant by the way, I was so shocked by the first impression she had given me then to everything changing. During Hurricane Harvey in Houston. When you finally made it to order, they said cash only.
I told the guy it was not cool to allow these flood victims to wait hours in line without knowing it was cash only. He just blew me off. They should have had a sign that says cash only or someone out there warning these people.
These people had family waiting for food at home. The grocery stores had a two hour wait to get in while raining heavily for almost nothing to choose from. Management at this store should be reprimanded. There were 2 people ahead of us. We waited until 8: We got our not complicated order at 8: There were more employees behind the counter than customers in front of the counter.
On August 5th I had the worst incident and was given NO help. My arm got caught in entrance to Wendy;s The door was hjeavy I could bare;ly oprn it! My arm was ripped open! Was cold had lack of respect!! The food we did receive tasted horrible. My child even spit the fries out and he loves fries. Was so terrible most got thrown away. I really think ALL your employees need to have a college education!!!!!! Because Every wendys i go to cant make my hamburger right!!!!! I said hamburger… NOT cheeseburger!!!!!!
How hard is it to read an order???? My grandson and I went to the store and there were 5 customers all one family and one which was an employee of the store ahead of me. I patiently waited as they ordered a very large order.
Then the woman who took the order she later told me she was the manager walked away from the register and began filling the large order. After several minutes, my patients grew thin, as did a couple of other customers who were behind me.
I asked for the manager and she informed me that she was the manager. I stated that she needed more help, to which she started making excuses without as much as an apology.
As I walked away, I informed her I would report her to corporate, which never fazed her. I called for my grandson to exit with me and she immediately went to the register and asked the guy who was behind me if she could help him. You talked about rubbing salt in a wound! If it were my store, which was very obvious she cannot manage properly and is untrained in people skills , she would not be a manager.
You need to make some kind of adjustments to your management situation at this location or you may lose more loyal customers in the future. We just left eating there and the cleanliness of that location is positively disgusting.
It has been that way for months. Believe me it is a real turn off. It just gets worse as weeks go by. It is not being maintained. The carpeting is so filthy that it is like walking on liquid soaked sticky carpet. Even though the tiled floor portion appears to look clean it is so sticky your shoes stick to it. The tables and chairs are never thoroughly cleaned.
I feel like calling and reporting the unsanitary conditions to the health department. The place looks so run down and unappetizing. The drink dispenser ice maker is always on the fritz more times than not and the diet coke selection is frequently empty.
The soft serve is usually way to runny, like a thin milkshake. No one seems to have the brains to suggest giving us the cups to return to the counter to get good soft serve upon finishing our meal.
We can sit there and count the people streaming in to the restrooms and going back to their cars. The high volume leaves the restrooms in undesirable conditions. That was kind of a turnoff too. I dealt with an extremely unfriendly drive-through worker. The lady was so unfriendly it prompted me to look at my drink before consuming it. When I opened the lid there was a mucus like substance floating on top of my tea and to add insult to injury one of the chicken nuggets looked like someone had taken a bite out of it.
I am highly upset and have been using every outlet possible to voice my concern. Service like this is unacceptable and I have taken pictures to prove it. Went to the wendys on south fort hood st. In killeen ,texas today saw 2 employees coming from the daquiri andsmoothies next door the food was totally horrible ,this is brand new store for poor food and really poor employees. You have two registers and most of the time only one is operating. The line just gets longer and longer.
There is an ARMY of people scurrying around the kitchen; actually a lot of them look like they are just pretending to do work. What are they doing? Why is the service so slow? The one person taking orders is also filling them; in the meantime she is taking no more orders to get into the pipeline. The line of customers gets longer and everybody waits and waits and waits… Does the drive-through line get top priority while the walk-ins get pushed to the bottom of the stack?
The guy in line in back of me today complained loud and long about the wait, the service, the lack of service. After church today my mother, father and I went to one of the four Wendys in the city where they live for lunch.
Right as we were going in a couple coming out said you will wait forever to be waited on. They had been waiting for over a half hour and still had not gotten to order.
We thanked them and decided to head to a different Wendys. My mother had ordered a salad and told the young man who waited on us she wanted light french dressing, ended up with ranch. I once again went up and approached the same gal whom I asked for a lid and told her that we did not get the right dressing. So you cares about the customer? Sad state of affairs, but so true. I went in to the Lake Park GA location to be surprised by how bad the employees were being treated and degrated by a manager.
She was yelling at this poor girl who was just as sweet as could be in front of us while she was taking our order. The cashier tried to continue to take our order while she is getting yelled at over asking will this be dine in or take out. The lady yelling could have waited until we were finished ordering and pulled the girl off to the side.
I asked the little girl who that was and she stated that it was their general manager Shannon. As me and my husband set there trying to enjoy our meal all we could hear was the same lady yelling and being disrespectful to all the employees. Maybe someone needs to step in and have a talk with this general manager and teach her about customer service and how to treat employees.
To me it looks like the little girl who again was as sweet and pleasant as can be could teach her something. I came through your drive through at 8: We went back to the store and asked to speak to the manager and he said he was and we showed him the wire and he acted like it was no big deal and offered us another sandwich to which I stated that he needed to get the paperwork to make a claim about the incident only for him to say let me go get my general manager.
I figured I would come here so I could express what happened this evening so in hopes of it not happening again. I just want to tell you one thing. And good hamburgers and other food. There is blantent favoritism there. We get told what to do and what not to do when the general manager is there, and when theyre not there.
The back of the cooler and the back of the fryers have caked on grease and dirt. The ice machine is never cleaned out fully. They never clean under the drivethru pop machine even though it leaks. Most of the managers are realted to one another in one way or another. We never deep clean unless the big wigs are coming.
Mangers disappear for long amount of time without anyone knowing where they go. Thats not even all of it. But i think you get the picture. We ordered our meals and sit down to enjoy our lunch. The cashier called the manager and informed her about my complain. I waited for several minutes because there were a lot of people in the restaurant.
It was a really hot day and he had not had enough water when he rode his bike to your store. A store employee recognized that he looked over heated and a little dizzy.
Someone at the store got him water and some cool paper towels and sat down with him. He and his buddies then had lunch and when he felt better continued on their bike ride. I appreciate that someone took the time to help and the initiative to do the right thing. I hope you send our appreciation and a thank you their way. Well that is not the case anymore my husband will no longer eat at your restaurant. They were on their way out of town as they were munching on their food my husband bit into the burger and he thought it was going to puke he said it taste like rotten meat.
It also smelled terrible. He did try to call you but got no answer so I decided to email you. The restaurant in question The address is S. Broadway, Minot, North Dakota Thank you for your time on this. The first unacceptable interaction was the cashier taking the order as we repeated numerous times our order, then the cashier yelled at us that she heard us. After we paid for our food we pulled up to the next window where a gentleman handed us a water, but mind you the cashier clearly stated the business did not have any water.
The gentleman the closed the window and looked in confusion, as to why we were still waiting. My boyfriend asked where was our food, with the look of confusion the gentleman asked for our receipt to take care of our order. The fries looked old the burger was cold and not edible. We asked for a refund because of the circumstances. I will assume the manager had to give us a refund and when she came to the window, she handed us our money and then turn her back on us.
I came home after getting order in drive-thru and having to correct my order at the window twice. To get home and find that the Jr. The only thing right was the fry.. I never get handed a receipt at this store. I called the store to speak to manager and explained nicely what happened. Had to explain 3 or 4 times about what was wrong. Not one time during this part of the conversation was there an apology.
That was the only time I heard yes, sorry and nothing else. My hair is not black in color. I had actually stopped going to this particular store due to the fact that they always leave something out of my order, food, silverware, extra requested dressing, something always.
I felt disrespected by the manager over the phone, like I was lying to him about the frosties especially. I will not return to this store, 1 second chance is enough.
I understand people try to get free food all the time, but I am not one of those kind of people. Very disgusted with your store at Richmond Rd. Please commit to the same comprehensive chicken welfare policy that dozens of other restaurant chains have already pledged to adopt! I ordered a number 1 from the menu in Mankato, Minnesota.
After indulging in a couple of bites of the burger, I noticed that the meat was pink. I brought it to the attention of the clerk and she said they would make me a new one. She was very nice.
I heard her yell back that she needed a new burger and to make sure it was cooked. We got there between I had to follow the line with the brass poles where I noticed an older lady with red hair, I think her name was Elaine. I ordered a meal for myself and for my husband.
While I was waiting for my meal I noticed that she was overwhelmed with taking orders and the other workers were on there cell phone and being very rude. They were not helping her at all. There was a lady in particular that was very loud and rude-she has blonde hair and glasses.
I was unable to see her name tag. Once the older lady finished taking all of the orders, she took out the trash and came back in and cleaned the bathroom. She still seemed to smile and wish us a good day. Shame on them for treating the older generation so poorly.
I had to take the time to submit my observation because I would not want someone to treat my mother like that. The workers had that poor lady doing everything while they sat there scrolling on their phones mocking her. I have no idea where the manager was but he or she needs to be more involved. If you would like to contact me, please email me and I will reply with my phone number. Its not just the elderly or that location.
I work that position in Newton Kansas and get treated the same way. I even got thrown under the bus by my manager last night to the customers for taking too many orders when the runner was just standing in the back chatting and the fry station guy wasnt keeping up his job either for me to even fill orders myself. Been numerous times to store N College St. This time 1 combo. Went of lunch ordered two spicy chickens dinners med.
Well they was not made right it was the regular chicken with cheese. So I called in and they replaced the meal and the person at the window was very nice. But when I got home and looked at the replacement the chicken was burnt and dry. The fries was greasy. I was very disappoint, but did not call them. As I have never had such a bad experience at Wendys.
The manager was Sophia and was nice as well. I was expecting to be pay the first five days I worked. So apparently there is no money on my card from the first week and who is doing payroll not sure.
I would like to have what I worked for sent to my card. I would like seek further actions on this because Im loving the experience of working there and hate to have to quit for this. She then said come to the window. I looked over the order on the screen before driving up and I seen it said barbeque sauce.
I spoke into the speaker and said I would like honey mustard not barbeque sauce. There was no response so then drove up to the window. When I got to the window she flung open the window and said I was not greeted and I was given the same attitude I was getting over the intercom.
I then told her I wanted honey mustard not barbeque sauce. She came back to the window and nearly threw my bag and 2 drinks at me and slammed the window shut. I looked back into the restaurant and there was someone else by the window I waved and said I was missing a drink. I looked at the man and asked him to speak to a manager. I asked him what was the woman name, as she stood right behind him. I told him I would be calling the corporate office.
I was extremely upset by this point my children were in the back seat and were visibly scared and upset. I drove home and called the corporate office and spoke to a man named Scott he took my report and stated someone would be calling me shortly.
I yet to receive a call from anyone. One day of orientation from 9 to 2: We pulled into the drive thru window lane with 4 vehicles in front of us that were at the order taking device. I will assume there were more vehicles from there to the drive thru pick up window as these vehicles were not moving for at least 15 minutes.
By the time we arrived to place our order there were at least another 5 vehicles behind us. It took at least another 15 minutes to get to the pickup window for our order. I ordered 3 of your large Strawberry Mango salads with 3 extra packets of dressing and 3 medium chocolate Frostys.
I believe the Frostys were poured upon the order so that by the time we were handed the frozen treats they were melted and by the time I finished driving home — in my air conditioned vehicle- to consume them, they were more chocolate milk than anything else.
I did receive 3 salads and only 2 packets of dressing. And one salad was void of the feta cheese and another was void of mango. There were no extra packages of dressing as stated on the receipt. To address the drive thru window. We sat at the window for another 5 minutes before the shift manager instructed the young man to advise us it would be another 2 or 3 minutes before our salads were ready, and he relayed that information before turning his back to us again and closed the window.
When this young man handed us our order he said thank you and I specifically asked if the extra packets of dressing were included he said yes without looking at anything and closed the window. Since we had experienced the long wait in the drive thru lane we decided to just drive out and did not check our bag before leaving to see if everything was there other than to confirm 3 salads. At this time if there had been 2 more vehicles in the drive thru lane waiting to place orders, we would not have been able to leave the window.
Other restaurant chains will send out an order taker to curbside to expedite the process, this did not happen. Nor did anyone apologize for our wait. I am writing let u know that i no longer working at wendys i resubmitted a app to restart working at wendys.
And the utilpro wouldnt even let me into my username or password for me to restart can u please resend me the utilpro please and thank u. Left a very bad impression on us. I placed my order and waited for 3 other cars in front of me to run through the line.
After receiving my order I stopped at stop sign just around the corner and opened my frosty and it rolled out onto my hands. I turned around and returned to store to get another or my money back and found the doors locked after midnight.
Then got back into car and returned to the line and again waited to get to the open window. This woman should be fired and should not be dealing with the public. I went to this restaurant recently and the experience was dismal.
I advise wendys to shut the place down and the health department to do a surprise inspection. No one responded to the initial complaint and I was promised a call back. You people must all be Democrats by your actions! I worked at a wendys in Fraser Colo for about 3 weeks.
They are constantly looking for help here and it is a small town. When i started work it was great got along with everyone. Well there is a shift manager there that is about 19 yrs old and he has the worst attitude i have ever seen for someone that works in customer service. And then i watched him work on the front registers and a customer cane to ask for something and he rolled his eyes and said really are you kidding me and stomped off.
Well the other day i was working on fries and was dpung good for the first time and he got mad at me yelled and told me to get gim fries for an order and i asked him whst haf happend to the ones i put up there cuz they were there and he told me to to do what i was told.
Now remind you im 37 yrs old and my 18 year old son dont even talk to me this way. And then he walked off talking crap about me for about 20 min. And about 20 min later im told to go take a 10 min break in the Middle of a rush i told the manager i would to just let me finish the order that was on the screen cuz i was waiting for the fries to finish cooking and cuz i said that i was told to clock out and go home and then said i was fired by the 19 yr old and yhen threatened to have the cops called in me if i didnt get out of there.
And now havent been paid. Also i tryed to call the store manager and never called me back. And i really think this is why they cant keep employees. So i just think this needs to be looked into.
So im starving like everyone else on July 12th around pm. So i say yes can i have a 4 for 4 please she replies with a huge sigh loud enough to hear her and asked which sandwich i wanted.. Shes going on with a coworker about some story passes my stuff i ask for sauce she stopped talking gaucked at me like excuse me for interrupting, she continued to talk during the exchange i said im sorry excuse me i need another one, she paused again with the only attitude as if i was being rude interrupt8ng her conversation and places the dressing in my hand with force.
I rolled down my window gave her a few words explaining she does it again and ill be speaking with her supervisor. She laughed and said ok. So i asked for a supervisor. You cnt even tell it was a supervisor she looked like crap so i was guessing they were pretending?
So naturally i asked if there was another supervisor on hand, of course there wasnt. So i explain the situation and she says im sorry i know they so much trouble all the ti. I literlly explained to the Supervisor that she is still lughing. The supervisor smiled and said i know!
I looked at her like woww this is crazy, wendys really allows garbage like that to work for them? Im leaving this comment here and im still going to contact corporate, i couldnt beleave the ppl they had there, the girl truelly laughed the whole time i made my complaint to the supervisor and of course the supervisor is laughing as well.
Like you can go home, idk how you became supervisor. My sister worked for wendys maybe about 5 yrs and just quit in Jan and she couldnt get a supervisor position that she wanted. So excuse my french How in the hell did this woman get promoted? When she is atrocious to the company and my sister who did her job, respected and new everything there is to know about that place not? Wendys is falling off big time. I ordered a large chili with cheese, 4 for 4. When I got to the window to pay for my food there was 3 workers standing there conversing with one another about what they did outside of work.
The chili that was handed to me was only half full without the cheese, the fries were cold as well as the nuggets. I asked for my chili to be corrected and for some fresh food. I got lots of attitude and more cold food. I then asked to just be refunded and that also seemed to be a problem for the workers. CST at W. Fairfield Drive, Pensacola, FL. I ordered the queso fries and I was not pleased at all.
First, the lady at drive thru acted like I was bothering her by coming through drive thru. Then when I get to the pick up window, she gets my card for payment, but she just kept looking at other employees and talking to them while trying to get my payment. She hands me back my card but it almost dropped to the ground because her back is turned to the window and she is constantly talking to other employees.
The picture that described queso fries was not what I got. It was just crap. I was not pleased at all. Here is my email to contact me: I had an appointment at 6: The girl on the prep line was just leaning on the prep counter staring at me. There was family in front of me and two ladies that were giving their order. I had to leave because I had no more time to wait.
This restaurant is right next to the Hershey Park amusement park. It gets very busy yet the management still seems to do nothing about it. I would never go there on a weekend day because the wait could 30 to 45 minutes. This is a fast food restaurant!! They are awesome but they sit between a Pizza Hut and a McDonalds so customers would just go next door if they had to wait as long as you wait at the Park Avenue store. Looking at some of the other complaints, you should really get your act together.
Maybe you should do what McDonalds did when I worked there part time. They would time us for our service to our customers and then reward us for performance. Our restaurant always received prizes because we were committed to serving our customers quickly and accurately. Customer service seems to be a thing of the past.
My daughter just finished high school and got her first real job for the summer at wendys in wellsburg wv and its sad to say it was a mistake for her ever since the manager cecil left it has going down hill and know theres a manager in training by the name belinda and a employee and friend of belinda named davie these 2 have done nothing but treated my daughter like a dog and write her up for stuff thats not true all because of a boy that worked there talked to my daughter and davie like him so now my daughter lives in hell every time she goes to work she is picked on i thought wendys was a family oriented company well i can tell you the one in wellsburg wv isnt and corporate better step in and hire all new people before the store ends up closed up not one manger nows what to do this this is a big red flag im so disappointed and very upset its taking all i got not to goto the store and and speak up for my daughter to the worthless managers that r working and running this restaurant.
My son is a high school student who was hired a month ago at the Uhrichsville store. The manager has yet to put him on the schedule. He has to call everyday and almost beg to work. This one manager gets in his face and is the rudest person.
Nobody should treat employees the way this manager does. You can call that location and ask any employee what her name is. Ice machine was rigged up dr pepper need changing service was really terrible cashier talking about walking out leaving the line got order wrong location west Evans street florence sc still going on right now disrespecting senior citizens.
It was just after 3am and we were tired, sleepy and starving. My boyfriend was dying for a burger when we finally came across this location. Of course, not a great way to be greeted especially having our hearts set on a fresh burger. My boyfriend is not a fast food type of guy so he starts asking questions about the chicken wraps.
This manager is answering his questions as if he was a four year old. She just looked away. I ask her for a lemonade and I tell her no ice.
Given the hour we were the only guests waiting for food. It literally took forever waiting for the food. If she shut her mouth and stopped chatting with the co worker in the back maybe the service would of been more efficient. But apparently she felt it was more important to talk and finish the conversation.
After reading the reviews on the Yelp page it seems lots of people get poor service. And then after paying for food the lady came to window to let me know that the vanilla frosty machine had already n shut down.
I live in Girard pa i use to work at wendys. Avising know one to work there i work there for a month n a half and they still didt pay me the money they owe me they owe me about hundred dollar checkk for my first two weeks i work there i put in about 80 hours worth of work and they didt pay and the next two weeks.
Worked about 25 hours that like a hundred and fifty. It really should be looked into. The help is something to look into, they are running down the business. A friend got a kids meal yesterday and a piece of the frying basket was in the French fries. Is this how to run a business? Please look into this store.
We go at least 2 times a week to a Wendys, thats one of the reasons I bought stock in the Co. Everytime I visit there the bathrooms smell of bleach and they are always spotless.
Kudos to the Manager and his team good job. She went to diaper the baby before leaving and left her purse in the booth. After being home for some time, she realized what she had done. She called, talked to the manager and was told that it had not been turned in.
She called the city police and they went and looked at the video, but guess what, a tv was blocking the table where they had eaten. If the table was cleaned after their group left, the purse should have been seen. A tv, nor anything else should block anywhere in that restaurant. No need having cameras, if they are not going to record what takes place inside. I have not yet received my tax return. I even called the bowling Green office and they said they would print one out but it never got here.
