suck from my coworker

My coworker related this story to me and I am horrified!

So she's a freshman in college, either 18 or 19, but looks more about 16. One of her friends had a pregnancy scare, so *Amy went to the local Longs Drugs to pick up a pregnancy test for her friend, since her friend was too embarrassed to get one on her own. Amy goes to Longs and does some other shopping and goes up to check out.

When the cashier notices the pregnancy test on the counter she starts lecturing Amy about how she's much too young to be having sex and that it's God's will that she not have sex before marriage. Amy muttered something about how it wasn't for her, it was for a friend and the cashier kept going on, getting louder and louder about how Amy really needs to stop having sex and she wouldn't worry about pregnancy scares.

Amy said she just left without causing a scene, but I told her she really needs to go back and demand to see a manager and report this behaivor. That is so unacceptable.

I was actually at Longs today and if that cashier was there I was going to purchase a pregnancy test to see what she said and then flat out tell her it's none of her business, but unfortunately she wasn't working today.

TLTR: Countrywide insists I agreed to voluntary foreclosure even tho I never called, never missed a payment and am current. They also insist I am married with four kids and a car even tho I am gay, single, with no driver's license.

Update: Now I'm getting MORE collection calls from OTHER COMPANIES FOR THE SAME PERSON! WTF? I checked my credit report and it is all clean. I've had this phone number for 5 years - so it is not something with having a new phone number.

Minor, but really annoying. I went to Staples today and was dropping off a pre-paid package. I went up and smilingly greeted the person in a Staples uniform behind the cash register under the UPS sign, only to be told, loudly and in ridiculously rude tone that "I'm not WORKING this counter, there's only ONE person working here and she'll BE with you in a MINUTE." I was a bit taken aback, but I stood aside and waited. The other girl, who was doing some copying, looked up and asked me if the package was pre-paid. I said yes, and the first girl again said "I TOLD you she'd be with you in a minute!" I almost informed her just as loudly that the second girl had asked me a question and I was responding, but I decided to ignore her, because then the second girl (who was very competent and polite) said to the first, "Well, there are three people waiting, so it won't be only a minute for all of them". The second girl checked my package in and gave me a receipt, taking all of ten seconds, after she'd finished with the person she was helping.

I mean, how am I to know that if you're wearing a Staples uniform and standing at the cash register beneath the UPS sign that you don't deal with packages? I've had my shitty days working retail, but seriously. Attitude. It really does matter.
