The people at the Aldis in Kennet said that some land owner is fighting them at their location have bought over some low rent apartments or housing of some type. Probally has his lawyer paid for by the owners of Harps and Hays

Donít sweat it Carlos, Aldi has over 9000 stores in 17 countries and have been doing business for about 50 years. If they a want to open one in Jonesboro it will happen, a couple of disgruntled locals won't faze them. If you are a checker it may interest you to know that checkout operators sit down in swivel chairs, passing products through a two-sided barcode scanner.

Well why the hell am I working my ass off trying to get a degree? I could be sitting fancy in a little swivel chair, care free, no worries, no stress, making more than 75% of our local population. My tens of thousands in student loans---all a waste of money. By the time I have to pay those off, I'll be averaging about 2 dollars an hour, while Mr. "I sit pretty in my fancy swivel chair" has tons of money to spend on himself, his loved ones, his mistress, his dog and 2 cats in the yard. All the while I will be sweating my ass off, slaving to the man so I can give my paycheck to the man. Damn this country, and it's endless opportunities disquised as crappy jobs. My new goal for the year: become a checker at an Aldi's store.:/

lol.......I already have a student loan debt that is higher than what I owe on my house. I just took a new job at a factory and taking online classes this semester and I'm bringing home more money at the factory than my wife who has been teaching for 8 years. Almost not worth going to college.

My plan is to always stay in school. Then I never have to pay them back! And I'll probably get tons of random degrees through the years. lol.:) I will eventually not be able to take out more loans, but after I get a couple of degrees I should be able to afford to go half time. I'm sure going half time later will be much cheaper than making my loan payments. I could have bought a shitty house for what I have spent so far. Or a nice car. Or a pontune. Geez. I'm gonna cry.

What do you wanna be when you grow up?

Actually, a place my family used to go in Florida was called PonTunes. But no, that job didn't require me to quiz applicants on how to spell certain types of boat names. And I'm okay with that. Hopefully, someday, you will be able to accept it as well.
