Hi vf84tcat,

I gave a link to one forum of retail workers, many were from the U.S., they provide the more than one example. a search on google for other retail workers forums and complaint forums finds even more.

Anyway, I think we could run around in circles here, unless we ratify things.
The meaning I perceived was that it never happens in the USA.

If the perception that you wished to convey is that it happens far, far less in the USA, I have no problem with.

If I seemed to be splitting hairs, maybe so, that's just me. Keep asking questions until you think you have all the information that is available.

I love this Russian proverb, "Doveryai no proveryai" = Trust but verify.

I looked at your tag and wondered what it could represent, perhaps it is a call I don't recognize.
I see that you are a well traveled mechanical engineer, so, you must be very good at what you do.

I look forward to reading your posts in the future as in the past.



The day I stop learning will be the day I die. Maybe.

As I had a eaxm to prepare , I didn't have the Laba porridge this morning. But I made it up at dinner. It is a festival to sacrifice to ancestors and gods for good harvest and good luck. And it is also said to be the day when Budhhism was found, so many would give their Laba porridge to the homeless for accumulating belssings. And the Laba porridge is said to have the power to avoid disease.
