    Did you both forget that the number can be keyed in by hand?

    I have literally had a clerk tell me "we don't do that here" (different store), so I didn't even ask. Also fucking annoying.

    This is how fast food workers in America eat. Maybe he liked Seano’s meal and figured this was a good way to bogard it.

    The merchants do get charged a higher processing fee for hand keyed transactions, so its possible they would decide not to. Annoying all around.

    Because freedumb. And because that how it's always been done and there's clearly no better way to do it. Seriously, this place will burn to the fucking ground from the Wasatch to the Oquirrhs before the hardliners give up shooting burning stuff over a tinder box. Cancel culture isn't gonna get muh fireworks!

    I’m currently working on an analysis for a surgery center. We get revenue figures and I’m like, holy shit this place makes money, what are you write offs/ adjustments? 92 fucking percent. If you’re the poor bastard who doesn’t have insurance they are going to invoice you 12 times what they would charge others.

    Handed the shit back, drove to Starbucks, no issues. Fucking annoying.

    I thought it was funny, but AK’s post made me hope it went into the trash, or maybe the staff, and not the next sucker that ordered the same thing.

    Edit: I see I’m not the only one that thought along those lines. Gotta be fast here.

    That wasn’t the Flying Star, was it seano?

    Maybe if this was touted more - play to the conservatives:

    Fireworks were originally invented in China. Cultural events and festivities such as the Chinese New Year and the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival were and still are times when fireworks are guaranteed sights. China is the largest manufacturer and exporter of fireworks in the world.

    Last year, China accounted for 94 percent of total U.S. fireworks imports, amounting to approximately $336 million, according to website World City.

    You're onto something KQ. If we can convince the collective that blowing shit up in the sky is directly supporting communism and lighting the fuse on any piece of firework is a tacit endorsement of socialism and Bernie Sanders we might decrease fires and anxiety among vets, canines, etc...

    The pizzeria I worked at usually got at least one fake order per night. That was my dinner. One could do worse than to eat non-artisanal-definitely-not-fresh-buffalo-mozzarell-san-marzano-tomatoes?-are-you-kidding-me pepperoni pizza every night. (My brothers college roommate at pizza 3 meals every day for an entire term, and saved all the boxes in his room. Healthier than a beer can wall I guess.)

    Regarding fireworks--like KQ said they were invented in China. They're made in China. If you set off fireworks you're obviously a Communist sympathizer, maybe a spy, probably the guy who brought covid to the US. So if you do see anyone shooting fireworks call the FBI, or better yet your friendly local militia, if they're not too busy setting off fireworks.

    BTW Boissal--China is a Fascist country, definitely not socialist, no matter what they call themselves. Bernie wouldn't last 2 minutes in China. They'd send him to some freezing prison camp in Inner Mongolia, without his mittens.

    Fireworks have some big $$ behind them. Politicians are owned. Back when I was on the NM/AZ regional board of wildfire directors we tried to get fireworks banned a couple years because of serious drought and huge fires already burning. We got tossed out of every meeting we tried that. For one thing, most of the fireworks sales here take place on (sovereign) Indian reservations. A few municipalities did cancel their shows during particularly bad conditions, but the yahoos made up for that.

    Freedumb.

    You got to eat those extra pizzas? You lucky fuck.

    The dudes that owned the place I worked at gave every bum order to the fucking police. They figured it would keep the cops from pulling us over as we we’re delivering the damn pizzas.


    it worked. The cops never pulled over any of our delivery drivers. And, a wonderful byproduct of that was the fucking cops never pulled me over anymore either because they assumed that I was out delivering pizzas no matter what time of the day or night that they saw my piece of shit car. So I got away with all kinds of stupidity at that point.

    Every year on 7/4 the City of Bend puts on a fireworks show from the top of Pilot Butte, a state park more-less in the middle of town.
    And every year the park catches fire.

    All it should take is a new conspiracy theory that Hillary and Fauci have colluded with the Chinese. Those sparkles you see emitting from bursting fireworks? Well those are a mix of 5g nanochips and covid particles designed to be breathed in. Set off fireworks, and they've got you!
