    I walked into my local TSC (Tractor Supply Company) at noon the other day to pick up a couple things I needed. I was a frequent customer there for over 10 years by that time. I was wearing a suit and tie as we had corporate visitors at the office for a monthly business review. When I came to the register to pay for my stuff the gal behind the counter asked me if I was going to someone's funeral that day and I responded no, I was just running errands over lunch. She was shocked and said, "You're not a farmer, what do you do with all the things you buy in here?" So I explained how I worked in the office but was a farmer at heart with horses and a small acreage to keep me entertained.

    Sounds to me like someone is keeping an eye on you......in a good way.

    I likely would have said "I have to keep producing those winning horses for the Kentucky Derby and you and your store make it possible"....

    Seriously, that personal connection is important to me, especially in this day and age.

    I was in the water store we use the other day and since I usually get 14 to 16 of the 5 gallon water jugs, instead of getting them out of the front of the store, I have a routine where I pull up to the rear door and park my SUV. Then I walk through the front entrance and cut back into the warehouse, open the overhead door and drive my vehicle in and across the building to the massive stacks of palleted water bottles. I get what I need, put the empties in the rack and pull back out and shut the door behind me.

    When I am at the overhead door, I grab my boxes of K cups off the warehouse shelves and put them in the front seat. After I pull out and close the overhead door, I park my SUV back at the entrance and I go in and tell the gal at the counter what I got for the day so she can put it on my account. I also tell her if I opened the last case of coffee or took the last few boxes so she knows.

    I was last at the water store a couple of days after I lost my one German Shepherd so my mind is distracted. I walk into the show room after getting the water in my routine and tell Renee' "16 bottles back and 16 out, plus 3 boxes of Breakfast Blend"........

    She says "Breakfast Blend? When did you change, you normally get the Butter Toffee coffee?"

    Well, she was 100% correct and when I grabbed the Breakfast Blend boxes, it didn't seem right to me........ Not sure why I took those. Distracted, I guess.

    I like having the stores I deal with know me well enough to prevent me from making mistakes, like I almost did with the coffee.......She then asked me if everything was OK and I told her about what had happened and she understood, since she is canine mom herself.

    I was at the small local grocery store recently where we frequent and I was picking up something my wife had asked me to get. When I got to the counter, the lady at the checkout said, "Are these for your wife?" She then said "If they are, she doesn't get the Sugar free ones, she likes the regular ones".........and of course, she was right.

    I will take that personal attention any day over the "Self scanning" at the huge stores and the transaction part of the process with little difference or interest in the customer..............

    Stopped by Wal-Mart last night to get a case of BL to go with a pizza the warden ordered. It was a quick run in, grab, and dash except the dash didn't work out well. My wife and I have a family friend living with us and she was with me. The lady at the self check wanted to see both of our IDs. Casey showed hers first and me being the smartass I am said I would show her mine but I was old enough to be Casey's father. The lady looked at my I'd and said that I was only 10 years older and that would only happen in a messed up world. Whoa, what?

    Apparently the mental image got to her because she then said it was disturbing to her that I would have that thought. I saw no reason to continue to feed her mental image so I let the joke die a quiet death. I thought to myself, you work at Wal-Mart, the premier humor headquarters on planet earth, and you have no sense of humor?
