MB: Resort Shoulda Kept Bar Open

Meesterbox: It was a bit frustrating after the first round when only (Buddy Roemer, pictured) was eliminated. He received zero votes at our location and only made the process that much longer. Also in the first round Gingrich received 15.1% of the votes. I did the math and if 4 people would not have voted for Newt county wide, he too would have been eliminated in the first round. Everyone had their phones and tablets out tracking the states progress and Romney did loose a significant number of supports once it was shown he had all Idaho regardless of our votes. Although it was frustrating at times, it was great to be involved in the process. There was one mistake made last night - the resort should have kept the drink bar open in the hallway. They could have made a lot of $$ in between rounds.

Question: Tell us about your experience with the first Idaho GOP caucus?

Meester: Walmart Customers Crazy

Meesterbox: I worked for Walmart as an assistant manager for a short stint in my early career (regret it and still have nightmares at times) and the number of crazy customers I had to deal with trying to take advantage of ‘the system’ was phenomenal. One instance a lady dropped a container of laundry detergent and it spilled out onto her flip-flop. She demanded to speak to a manager (lucky me) and she started yelling how we ruined her flip-flop, she deserved a free pair, and took it off and shoved it in my face and told me to smell the damage.

Question: In your experience in retail, do you believe the customer is always right?
