Which ones and where. Pathmark? King Kullen? Stop and Shop? Surly cashiers for the most part. Unhelpful at the meat counter. King Kullen stores near me were filthy and poorly stocked. Unless you are using self service they should ALL bag your groceries. Common sense, not laziness. I always turn down the Publix 'can I help you to your car' because I don't need it, but it's a nice gesture.

Trader Joe's has good workers. My experience has been uniformly positive everywhere with them, but they aren't a competitor to Publix.

Just to name 3 of many. You need to get out more and find out what is out there.
'get out more' is right. Like more distance between him and Florida. He really should move back to NY where everything is cheaper and more convenient.

Did the Marines have Bagels on Iwo Jima.......NO....... Did Custer have them at the Little Bighorn (or Greasy Grass Creek for you history buffs).....NO.......Did Neil Armstrong have them on the moon....NO.......Does Florida have them??????? NO

Somewhere in this Land of Oz otherwise known as Flourida as the Floridians say is the Emerald City. In that place lies a bagel with cream cheese. It must be found. It must exist. But...where?
Where are you? If it is north Florida, maybe there are no bagels. But from central Florida south, there is Paneras, Einstein (and Target also sells Einstein bagels) and myriad independent chain bagel sellers. There is a surplus of bagels in Florida out of season. In season, the 'Everything' bagels sell out much more quickly, and since those are the ones I like, I notice that shortage a lot more than any general bagel shortage.

Default On The Positive Side

On the positive side, if the only thing "retired 11" has to worry or complain about is bagels and pizza, he must of made the right decision to move here.

Of course, he might start to whine again when he realizes he can only make Sandmen in the winter and not Snowmen....

Do you ever go back to NY? Bring them back with you and freeze them. We always bring back dozens and keep them in the freezer. Of course, not quite the same as fresh and hot, but still the best alternative.

Ray's frozen Brooklyn Bagels (made there) are probably the closest you will ever get. We had a conversation with a man from Brooklyn who opened a bagel shop in Florida. Not bad but he said it will never be the same because the WATER is not the same.

Right on! Of course then he would be bored, because he couldn't write his "clever and witty" little posts downgrading Florida at every opportunity.

I think I am going to move to New York to complain about not having boiled peanuts and smoked mullet. To complain about the high taxes, liberal government, bad roads, high cost of living, rude people and everything else I can think of, and talk about how much better it is in Florida.
