"Automatic renewal" is a scam perpetrated by many companies, including even magazine subscriptions. Thus, never pay for something with a credit card unless you have THOROUGHLY read what you are signing up for. By the way, you can get good anti virus protection for free from a number of companies. Don't let them tell you their paid product is superior and you really need to buy it. For most people, the free versions are quite adequate.

Buying shoes online is not a good idea. Nowadays, with most shoes made in some foreign land with seemingly no knowledge of American sizes or ability to make, you must always try them on first. This means buying shoes at a retail store with the kids in tow. This can also happen with other articles of clothing. Never, ever trust the size you buy is really the size you will receive. A hint to those with children: buy clothing and shoes, etc. when on clearance at stores like Meijer, Walmart, etc. usually toward the end of a season for sometimes 75-90% off. Stock up with sizes bigger than what the child is wearing now so you always have new stuff when they outgrow their current clothes. This requires an outlay of money to begin with but you will save big time as they grow into the new stuff you bought dirt-cheap a year or two earlier.

I can certainly agree that most Kroger stores need better management from my experience with the two Kroger stores in my town. I have never encountered store managers so rude, arrogant and seemingly inept at managing a store and employees.
That being said, leaving frozen food out on the floor for long periods of time is not just a management problem, but also a personnel one. It shouldn't take a mental giant to figure out that frozen food needs to be put into a freezer asap, but apparently the employees don't really care, nor do the managers. I question your Walmart enthusiasm, however. Have you any idea what kind of people Walmart employs or how they "work?"

Difficult to know exactly what happened and/or who is at fault, you or Amazon. The good news is that Amazon will refund the money as their customer service is rather reliable. The bad news is that it appears you are using a debit card rather than a credit card! Now you know why it is so dangerous to use a card where the money comes winging it's way out of your bank account immediately. This is how we learn. Get yourself a credit card---if you can qualify for one and start using it instead of a debit card.

I have always found dental insurance to be rather worthless. You really don't get much for your premiums. Best to just save your money and when you have a problem, go to your own dentist in private practice---never one of the dental mills---and pay for whatever you need done. You will come out ahead overall. A root canal and a new crown only costs something like two grand if both are done.

Amazon.com is very good except for their "guaranteed" two-day delivery for Prime members. They now rely mainly on the USPS for delivery which simply does not happen in many cases due to the unreliability of the USPS. Thus, don't count on always receiving your goods in the two days as promised by Amazon.

You need to remember that you are dealing with Walmart! They have some very odd and silly rules about everything, it seems, eg. you cannot take your bottle receipt from one store in town to the other store in town. Best to find a Kroger store in your area. At least you will find adequate lanes open and employees dressed like civilized human beings.
