Ask The Eye, Dominatrix Price Buster

December 2, 2010

Dear Eye View

My husband has some kinky sexual desires that I don’t want to deal with—they just aren’t my thing. He’s proposed that he visit a dominatrix, and I’m half-inclined to consent. He insists that they wouldn’t be having sex, not even in the Bill Clinton sense, and that whatever happens, there would be no threat to our relationship. I suspect that both of those things are true, but I still wonder whether we should go down this road. Obviously, I don’t love the idea of my husband being involved in any kind of intimate acts with another woman, but I might prefer this to dominating him myself. He’s gone to therapy—it made no difference. Any thoughts?

—Conflicted Wife

Dear Conflicted Wife

Send him to a dominatrix hopefully on sale and made in America. A pain he may not indure.. Hope this helps.

December 1, 2010

Two women are arrested for shoplifting and police say they used their bodies to conceal the goods. Edmond police authorities say it was at the Edmond TJ Maxx that loss prevention officers found the duo stuffing items under their belly fat and breasts.

They say they took four pair of boots, three pair of jeans, a wallet and gloves; $2,600 worth of store merchandise.

Ailene Brown, 28, and 37-year-old Shmeco Thomas were arrested for shoplifting and are facing felony charges.

Officer James Hamm said, “These two were actually concealing them in areas of their body where excess skin was, under their chest area and armpits.”

Police say Brown also had a knife in her purse they say she used to cut security tags in the store.

100- Year Old Walmart Greeter Knocked To The Ground In Shopping Cart Showdown

November 29, 2010

A 100-year-old greeter at a Milwaukee Walmart was shoved by a customer after the centenarian tried to stop the woman to determine if she’d paid for items that were in the lower part of her shopping cart, police said Monday.

Greeter Lois Speelman fell down and went to a hospital after she was shoved on Sunday.

 “I’m bruised a little, but I’m able to go back to work Thursday,” Speelman told The Associated Press from her home on Monday.

Speelman declined to answer further questions, saying she didn’t want to lose her job and the investigation wasn’t over. A Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokeswoman didn’t have more details but said that Speelman’s health was the company’s primary concern.

Their health is our concern, what they wear not so much..

Eye View Business, Early Black Friday Appears To Be More Buying Than Looking

November 26, 2010

Early-bird bargain-hunters scooped up “Black Friday” deals on everything from TVs to toys across the United States, but many said discounts were not as deep as those offered last year.

As retailers look for the best holiday season in three years, deals that are less generous could bode well for their margins. Early anecdotal indications were that people were buying, not just looking. Retailers hoping to deploy airbag to economic downturn.

Mortgage Robosigners Were Walmart Workers. Searching The Meaning of Affidavit

October 13, 2010

In an effort to rush through thousands of home foreclosures since 2007, financial institutions and their mortgage servicing departments hired hair stylists, Walmart floor workers and people who had worked on assembly lines and installed them in “foreclosure expert” jobs with no formal training, a Florida lawyer says.

In depositions released Tuesday, many of those workers testified that they barely knew what a mortgage was. Some couldn’t define the word “affidavit.” Others didn’t know what a complaint was, or even what was meant by personal property. Most troubling, several said they knew they were lying when they signed the foreclosure affidavits and that they agreed with the defense lawyers’ accusations about document fraud.

LITTLE ROCK — Wal-Mart(WMT) announced a program Thursday in which its workers can receive college credit from the online American Public University and receive a tuition discount from the school.The company also said it will commit $50 million over three years to help workers pay for books and tuition above the reduced tuition rate. After the reduction, tuition will cost $212.50 per undergraduate credit hour and $255 for graduate credits.

 “We wanted to create a new way of thinking about what we call associate development,” Mars said. We are hoping to raise the education level not only of our employees but our Walmart families and community.

Walmart Rolling Out Smart Tags. Some Things Should Remain Private

July 23, 2010

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to roll out sophisticated electronic ID tags to track individual pairs of jeans and underwear, the first step in a system that advocates say better controls inventory but some critics say raises privacy concerns.

Starting next month, the retailer will place removable “smart tags” on individual garments that can be read by a hand-held scanner. Wal-Mart workers will be able to quickly learn, for instance, which size of Wrangler jeans is missing, with the aim of ensuring shelves are optimally stocked and inventory tightly watched. If successful, the radio-frequency ID tags will be rolled out on other products at Wal-Mart’s more than 3,750 U.S. stores.

Some smart cards are smarter than others…Not sure where you swipe the card………

 

 

Two For Tuesday At Walmart.Mother Tries To Sell Her Irregular Kid

June 25, 2010

Everyone knows you can find just about anything you need for a low price at Walmart — including baby stuff. But an actual baby? That’s not usually part of the deal.

Unless you’re desperate for cash and not in the best frame of mind.

That’s the case in Salinas, California, where police say a couple tried to sell their 6-month-old baby for $25 outside a Walmart. Now they’re facing child endangerment charges.
   
Patrick Fousek, 38, and Samantha Tomasini, 20, were arrested Wednesday, hours after Fousek allegedly approached two women outside Walmart and asked if they’d like to purchase his child — at the bargain price of $25. The women initially thought Fousek was joking, but when he became persistent, they got suspicious and reported it to police, Salinas police spokesman Officer Lalo Villegas said.

“They did an outstanding job and gave our officers good information.” Villegas said. “I don’t know if they’re mothers but they definitely had that instinct to help.”

The suspect stated it was Two for Tuesday at Walmart and she didn’t need her extra kid……

Ask The Eye.Bath Room Etiquette

June 6, 2010

Dear Eye View: I am a father of two beautiful daughters, ages 1 and 4. We spend a lot of time outside, in parks, museums, and restaurants. And, of course, they often have to go to the restroom accompanied.

I often wonder whether to take them to the men’s or women’s restroom. I used to always go to the women’s—it’s cleaner, and they don’t see men peeing.

I am always apologetic if there is a woman in the restroom, but it is honestly never a problem, and they always say, “Oh, never mind, that’s normal”—the several frowns and protests always came from men. This really led me to think about it.

I still think that we should go to a ladies’ room. I mean there is really nothing to see there, is there? And after all, my daughters are young ladies, so why should they not go to a ladies’ toilet? What do you think?  Ladies Man

Dear Ladies Man

This is a touchy subject and should be  determined on a case by case basis. For the most part the ladies restrooms have fewer toilets, longer lines, and dudes that look like ladies. Just try to blend in.. Hope this helps.
