On a recent trip to Indio, I was struggling to carry several bulky items through a crowded store to the front registers. Not one, not two, but three people (other customers, not store employees) offered to help me wrangle my stuff. (Note to the store in question: Provide decent-sized shopping carts, maybe?) On top of that, I somehow managed to drop my cell phone during this time, which I did not discover until I got out to my car. When I went to the Customer Service counter inside the store, I found that someone had actually turned in my cell phone. So a big shout-out to the folks of the Coachella Valley. You have just bolstered my husband's campaign to convince me to forsake Orange County and retire in the desert.

Indio is 760 area code and the avg age is around 90 something...

Had you dropped your phone in Fontana, Rialto, Grand Terrace or Mira Loma no chance you would have gotten it back.

You seem to be very disorganized and lack planning. Trying to deal with bulky items that clearly didn't fit the shopping cart and then losing your phone?. Geez lady. How large should the shopping carts be?

You seem to be a bitter old fart who can drain the joy out of anything. Geez, man. How small can your heart be?

So "princess" (cute, daddy call you that before he....) anyway, let me clarify my statement. Thank you decent people for helping out this bumbler who can't figure out how to load a shopping cart or can't keep her phone in her pants. It's good honest folks like yourselves that helps to make this world a better place.

You say 'clarify', I say 'backpedal'.

I'm a Star Wars fan, not an incest survivor, but interesting that your mind went there all by itself.
