Acme does it for sure, but only for first birthdays Acme Supermarkets: FREE 1/4 Sheet Cake for 1st Birthday!
Harris Teeter does it too. Harris Teeter - Baby's First Birthday Cake
I was actually shocked how many placed did it. So, even those on assistance could get one without being judged as dumb or loosers since its a free non essential!
Well to each his own I guess.
Lillie, my hope is that you will choose not to leave. Melissa, it is my hope that you can and will remain as well. I have told you both this privately before and will attempt to do so publicly again.
I believe we all can appreciate a good debate and I know you both have the capability to contribute something of value as you present your *side*. For the most part, I enjoy reading through the threads here.
What is not fun are the direct or (lightly) veiled digs/barbs. Maybe some may find it amusing, but that doesn't make it OK to continue. I know that it is draining for your host and for your fellow board members as well.
Passionate/spirited contributions are welcome. The other nonsense you (directed towards a general *you*) can be left offsite.
To be clear and again for everyone really -- do not post finger-pointing at someone else. Accept responsibility for your own actions and how YOU can choose to be a part of the *solution* vs. contributing to the problem. Easiest answer? DEBATE the TOPIC.... not the person.
If you want to discuss further you can contact me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't worry- if I don't have to be attacked anymore of course I'm not leaving! The debate board is for FUN!
I sure hope everyone else can expect the same courtesy as you do.
Also, since several have asked, I will clarify for everyone that dragging stuff posted from offsite into a debate -- particularly from someone's personal Facebook page -- is not acceptable without their permission. I do not believe any of you deserve to be violated in that manner. I am posting this as a warning this one time only. If you (general "you") feel that there should be an exception (for example, *proof* you've discovered that someone is a troll) contact me FIRST privately to verify that an exception can be made. Otherwise, leave things from offsite -- offsite!
Again, if anyone wishes to discuss this further, please drop me a private message or email vs. this continuing to disrupt the debate.
Let's return to debating the topic:
North Carolina lawmakers have drafted legislation that would ban welfare recipients and people in bankruptcy from buying lottery tickets in the state, according to several news reports.
The bill draft would punish vendors for selling lottery tickets to someone who they know is on welfare or in bankruptcy, according to ABC 11 in Raleigh. The lawmakers behind it believe it's counterproductive for the government to accept money from welfare recipients who are struggling to get by.
I had no clue Giant gave free cakes but I really dislike shopping at Giant so maybe that's why, lol!
If there is a way that I have personally wronged you or hurt you I urge you to PM me directly so that I may apologize, or if you want a public apology please tell me what I have done to you and I will apologize publicly. I have and will continue to apologize every time if my words hurt someone. I have thick skin and sometimes forget in my NE banter/sarcasm that some people don't. My intent isn't to hurt.
IF your goal with this statement is just to be vaguely dog-piling on me, thats okay too. Just recognize that it doesn't do anything constructive, it just ups the acrimony.
