    My mother used to get all kinds of goodies with S&H greenstamps, even had an outlet store here years ago where you could directly pick your stuff up.

  11. Don't remember that but I remember when Circke K (just like a 7-11 store) used to sell shotgun shells and .22 ammo. What a deal. A bad guy could go in the store at 2a.m. with an empty gun, buy some ammo and rob the place. And there were no such thing as surveillance videos either.

    Times have really changed.

    That's nuttin...when I was a 15 yr old kid I'd drop by the local restauant after school and get a piece of cherry pie with ice cream and tell them to put in on my tab. About every two or three weeks I'd pay up and keep my credit good.

    Meantime, the local grocery store owner bit the bullet on several occasions with this system of credit for some of the poorer farmers in my area.

    He knew when they came in the store to stock up on food supplies and clothes for their kids, that he'd actually be donating it to them. He was just that kind of a nice guy. Today most people wouldn't tolerate non-payment and would figure it was not their problem.

    Times have really changed. :nod:
