Yeah I guess people think I am a freak and don’t want to answer lol.

Re: Emails I get through the forum...

Here's a new one. I'm not sure where he got the idea I was a Kmart distributor... I hope he gets his pants.

For the longest time, the default bag at Ralphs was a handled paper bag. They did away with that a few years ago.
Not completely. My Online delivery came in the handled paper bags.

It seems that the start to accepting CC with chip here started when Taco Bell added the ordering kiosks, if not just before.

Re: Taco Bell not taking card chips?

It seems to be a very slow rollout with Taco Bell. Some locations are taking chip. Pretty much this. Taco Bell is very lenient in what they let their franchisees get away with sometimes, and the POS update for chip cards is one of them. At the same time, they have a TON of technology rollouts happe...

Re: Cisco Phones at Safeway Stores

Thank you for your responses. My real question is the fact that Safeway didn’t take advantage of the CAT 5 at each register and they instead installed Cortelco analog old school telephones at each checkouts using the old phone wiring.
