OK, this is pretty bad. To start with, I was shopping with my family at Walmart looking to fill a school supply list for my children. Did you know that parents are now asked to purchase hand soap and tissues for the classroom? I'm glad that they have asked the parents to purchase these items instead of it coming out of the teachers' pocket. The list was pretty extensive, also including, ziplock freezer bags, disinfectant spray and more glue sticks then I could ever imagine being used. I'm not asking for forgiveness for shopping at the giant big box store on South Commercial which employs cheap labor from China to make the goods sold there. When the choice is saving a few bucks or participating in a futile protest against the country's richest business with more lobbyist than the Salem Keizer School District has teachers, I'm going to look out for my wallet. But as I was walking out the door with a cart full of supplies and knowing where we were headed next, a bit of guilt came over me, causing me to suggest that we walk over to our next destination. Carl's Jr. is just across the street from Walmart and it happens to be my son's favorite place for fast food. I would have to admit that this place is very tempting for me as well, ever since they started serving the chili cheeseburger. This sandwich is awfully similar to one that I grew up eating at a local So Cal chain called Tommy's. For a fast food restaurant, the service at this CJ's is pretty slow and disorganized. I don't go there that often, but I've noticed there are always new people behind the counter and taking orders. If you use the drive thru, check your bags before you leave, because they really screw up that service. Please forgive me for not making a stronger effort to support local business. I know that the local places do a much better job of customer service and eating at them will sprout new local businesses. So I will leave it to the random, anonymous, onliners to administer my punishment for making poor food choices. Comment now!
