    No lockers at the Publix?

    Nope, but they have a canal I'm quite familiar with.

    My membership renews in May, so I guess I still pay the old rate

    There's no way that many people will cancel. I'd be surprised if more than 5% drop.
    Some of them were probably considering dropping anyway. I think it's a little incentive for what could have been normal churn.

    My girlfriend’s son works at an Amazon DC. I should ask him about the peeing in the trash cans.

    I would think with all the surveillance, no one would have a chance at peeing in the trash can without getting caught

    It depends on how far away you're standing.

    Working in a mail order warehouse has always sucked to some degree. Putting a computer on the front wasn't going to make that better.

    I returned that watch on 4.27 and they got it on 5.3. At first I was wondering why they didn't give me the refund right away like they have with everything else I've returned but then I read they only do that for inexpensive items. I then figured I would get the refund before the weekend and why Friday rolled around and nothing was there I asked and they said 2 business days but probably sooner. Now it's Monday and the money still isn't back in my account. I'm just having them put it in my Amazon gift balance so they don't have to deal with any banks slowing the process. I think I'm going to talk to customer service again if it's not refunded by 1:30 because that is the 2 full business days mark.

    They are earning interest off of your money.
    Consider it a restocking fee.

    Two business days after the day they receive it.

    Yea, they got it on 5.3 at like 1 pm. So 5.3 at 1 to 5.7 at 1 is 2 full business days.

    Anyway, I did the chat thing again and they said the refund would be back in my account by 3:30. I think it actually will be this time since the return item screen changed status after the chat.

    I don't think "business days" works like that. They call it "days" because it's an integer number of days, not a fraction of days. The clock started on 5/4.

    I saw an article about that and it spooked me. Some guy who returned around 10% of his items got banned. I recently returned 2 things and then looked over all of 2018 and I have a 4 returns on 36 purchases so that's 11.1%.
