I have noticed the same thing. I've been there 4 times and the food was (like you say)barely hot. The service is very good so I don't think it is waiting to be picked up too long. I wonder what the deal is

I think we have heard so many (leaked by manager) rumors that Costco is coming to the AR area, that no one pays any attention any more. But, I'm still crossing my fingers.

I hear ya! I am still working on DH though, if I do not rush to answer a call.... do not bring me the phone! Same rules for house phone. Not that I have a lack of zeal for technology, however, there are just times when talking on the phone is not convenient, safe or polite.

there's quite a few posts throughout CD SA on a number of topics where people have heard things from other people. Disney comes to mind..

$50 to RD!!
KSAT quoted the guy as saying he'd just answered his phone when he noticed the doctor and couldn't stop in time....

ok, thanks for clarifying that. I was walking around when that story was on and I thought I heard cell phone, but I totally missed the context. What an idiot and he should be forced to appear on billboards telling everyone not to be as much of an a$$hat as he was. I'm sure the phone call was really important too..

I would like the $50 in cash please. I'll use it to fund my upcoming trip

I knew Dr. Sanchez.........he treated me at SE Baptist ER a few years back. Very, very, very nice doctor, and he took excellent care of me. Such a loss. They really do need to outlaw cell phone usage while driving--and then enforce it!

I think he should have a cell phone probed up his woohoo.... As for the whole cell phone deal. I do like having one, but I will say that they have turned the public, and corporate opinion of "avaliability", and the 9 to 5 work day into a free for all. I have 2, one for personal use, and one strictly for work, but im about to get rid of one, and if I weren't demanded to have the other one I'd be getting rid of it too.

As for the driver, and driving while on the phone laws, aren't bluetooth earpieces basicly a dime a dozen these days?

So wait, the guy lied about his tires locking up? Isn't that..I don't know for sure...but some sort of crime/felony for lying on a police report? Well, that doesn't overshadow the fact that he also killed a man, but I'm just saying. I have to admit, I do talk on the phone in the car. I now will stop doing that after this story. Lesson learned. I also used to answer the phone during dinner. I don't do that anymore. I am trying to depend less and less on that darn thing. I can't get rid of it completely, because that is our long distance.
