I lost my baby at birth, she had the cord in a knot and it was an unfortunate accident. I’ve been grieving but today decided to start returning baby items.
I started with clothing, and when asked why I was returning the clothes, I told the clerk it didn’t work out. She said she had to put a specific reason for the return so I said “My baby died, so I won’t be needing clothes for her anymore.” The clerk went to get her manager and the manager told me what I had said was uncalled for and pretty much told me they couldn’t process my refund. I will admit i called my mom in a very angry mood and she essentially told me “I would have said the same thing. You were brutal and she didn’t need to know that. You’re just projecting.”
This lady was particularly chatty and since there was nobody else in the store, proceeded to tell me about a customer who's kid (6M) wanted barbies for his birthday and the kids dad was not happy about it at all.
That subject led to her personal beliefs (along with her interest in females), being that people should simply be more accepting of what others interests may be.
I casually responded with my overall agreement and the fact that I'm bi.
Didn't even think about what I said until I said it.
It felt like a weird weight was lifted (not being dramatic) it just felt... good.
So that's it, just wanted to extend my wonderful feeling out to you kind strangers.
You will go to prison and they will give you state healthcare and take care of you.
If you are seriously ill and can’t afford your medical bills, sadly this may be the best way to get free treatment.
I’ve seen lots of homeless people try and commit crimes to get locked up. Robbing a bank for one dollar is probably the easiest and fastest way to get it done.
Now police are looking for a man with a price on his head.
Can you please recommend post office locations where the employees wear face masks? Specifically in the area of North Providence, Johnston, Greenville, Smithfield? I've been to two locations, and the clerk at each location refused to wear a mask. At one I said "Will you please put a mask on?" and was told "YoU CaN't AsK mE ThaT! YoU'Re nOt AlLowED tO AsK mE!" Lately I've been having to ship stuff internationally, and the self-serve kiosk can't do that. Please let me know of any locations where you've had a good experience with safety. Thank you for any help you can offer!
EDIT: Thank you lots for being so helpful! Keep posting shout-outs about post offices around the state that are doing a good job!
EDIT2: RI DOB called me and said that although they don't have authority over a government office, they have been receiving complaints besides mine and are contacting some USPS regional corporate office (I forget the exact wording) and making sure something is done about it.

In Washtenaw County, 101,157 absentee ballots were sent to voters. So far, only 54,356 have been received.
If you haven’t yet returned your absentee ballot for the primary, PLEASE don’t rely on the mails. Bring it to your city or township clerk’s office.
All of them have secure drop boxes for ballots.
it’s a totally rewarding experience, worth doing at least once in your life
I met some totally kick ass, knew their shit, generous, and patient sixty year olds today who have been doing this for years, amazing inspiring souls
I spent 14.5 hours working with 6 total strangers today and it restored my faith in people. We were not a perfect match but we had a common objective today and we treated each other with respect and kindness even if we disagreed. If it wasn’t the time of coronavirus I would have been laying some hugs at the end of today
-if you have a new Texas license it won’t let us scan it, email/contact the Travis County Elections Division and tell them to fix that before November, it slows the line down bc you have to do a manual search for your name

Save Austin Now Reacts to City Clerk’s Decision
City Clerk’s Office Claims Total Signed Petitions Fall Below 20,000 Threshold
AUSTIN, TX — Today the co-founders of Save Austin Now, local Democrat Cleo Petricek and local Republican Matt Mackowiak, released a statement after the city clerk claimed the total number of validated petitions to reinstate the camping ban is estimated to be 19,122.
“We do not believe there is any chance whatsoever that we submitted fewer than 20,000 petitions signed by registered voters in the city of Austin. After throwing out hundreds of signed petitions, they are now claiming that a 25% sample found 18.9% invalidity. We believe this is impossible since roughly 75% of our signed petitions came in the mail. We have requested additional information from the clerk’s office and expect to receive it no later than tomorrow morning. We are exploring several options available to us, including possible legal action. This fight is not over. The... keep reading on reddit ➡
hey all. i recently started at publix in the grocery department and i'm getting along really well with my coworkers and management. i'm the only girl on closing shift (and the youngest person, 18F) but no one has made me feel lesser for it and no one has been inappropriate.
however, i am wondering if other female stock clerks have (usually) older men make innocent comments to them all the time on the sales floor. they're usually harmless, but it makes me wonder why they single me out and not so much my male coworkers. i was working on an aisle with someone when a customer made a passing comment as he walked by and my coworker asked, "do you get comments a lot?" making it sound like he doesn't. before that, i hadn't really thought much about it because i assumed it was normal for all stock clerks.
i also considered how it's always men who make these comments and ask me mildly personal questions when i'm helping them - female customers never do, they just let me show them where the pr... keep reading on reddit ➡
Near my workplace there’s a bakery I (25m) go 2 or 3 times a week to and I’ve developed a crush for the clerk who is there most of the time.
Would it be creepy/weird/inappropriate/anything else to ask her out? I don’t even know how I would even ask her out since we’ve never had any sort of non-business interaction so, I feel it’d would be really weird for her.
But also, there’s no chance to meet her outside her work so I really don’t have much to work with here.
Would it be creepy to ask her?
tl;dr: I have a crush on a clerk from a local bakery. Should I ask her out or would it be inappropriate?
I accepted an accounts receivable clerk position today for a small company. I have no experience, & have only been in college for two semesters of my associates in accounting. I’m excited, but also nervous, what do I expect?
I just got hired as a Produce Clerk and I was wondering if anyone has any tips since this would be my first job. Also if a cashier position opens up should I try to transfer to cash or is produce better for a first job?
I set up my "confidential tithing" through bill pay several years ago because I don't like my bishopric seeing how much I pay (or not). However, I noticed that I can still see these donations on my lds.org account in the donatiins history. I know they may have changed their policy of anonymity since the great Reddit surge of 2019, and I wanted to see if anyone knows if it's still anonymous?
While I was in a bishopric, it really bothered me reviewing everyone's tithing (and by extrapolation their income) and I decided from them on I wanted to keep my donations confidential. Thanks for any information.
And yes, I could probably find more ward clerks on a faithful sub, but I assume they are less likely to know this info and may be more likely to question my motives. Lol. Thanks!
I'm Lawrence (Larry) Kestenbaum, Washtenaw County Clerk and Register of Deeds. I'm a candidate for re-election this year, and I have two opponents in the August 4 primary.
The county clerk is the county's chief election official, records all births, deaths, and marriages, among other things. The register of deeds (a separate position in most Michigan counties) records all the land records for the county.
I was first elected in 2004, defeating my Republican predecessor. Washtenaw used to be a Republican county; I'm the first Democratic county clerk in seven decades. I was re-elected in 2008, 2012, and 2016.
I have accomplished many things in my time as clerk. The office is now more efficient and more transparent than ever before. We meet the growing service needs of this county with half as many employees as I had when I started.
My commitment is that every person who comes to our office be treated with courtesy and respect. Even, or especially, those who are rude, or angry, o... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi ISFJs, I'm writing here because you give such good advice and really care about people. I don't usually post asking for relationship advice and I just don't know if anyone TELLS YOU HOW AWESOME YOU ARE!
There's no clerk. Lately I've been kind of down for a few personal reasons. Things just aren't going to plan. Since ISFJs are so plentiful, I figure some of you might be having a hard time, too.
So I just want you guys and gals to know, you're awesome. You give so much of yourself and ask nothing in return, secretly hoping that your sacrifice will make everything okay. You are a hero in the shadows and wouldn't have it any other way. So today, cut yourself some slack and have that extra cookie. You deserve it.
Rock on, my fellow ISFJs. Rock on.
Post is asking for a flair. Because I want to be sneaky and flare it as a question, here is a question. Will you please be kind to yourself today?
I know it isn’t much but I am pretty proud of myself!!!
