Homeless panhandling INSIDE Jewel-Roosevelt & Wabash

For the second time while shopping, I've been accosted by a (what's PC now? - homeless? wino? hobo? deranged?) person while shopping at the Roosevelt & Wabash Jewel. Yes, INSIDE. At the fish counter. With two Jewel employees watching on, and doing nothing. I know there are security guards at this store, but they're outside.

And they seem not to be doing a bang-up job outside, either. . . .this photo is a couple weeks ago. With a person camped...

For the second time while shopping, I've been accosted by a (what's PC now? - homeless? wino? hobo? deranged?) person while shopping at the Roosevelt & Wabash Jewel. Yes, INSIDE. At the fish counter. With two Jewel employees watching on, and doing nothing. I know there are security guards at this store, but they're outside.

And they seem not to be doing a bang-up job outside, either. . . .this photo is a couple weeks ago. With a person camped out (at least two hours by my watch) under the watchful eye of security, what's next?

The store manager has been refusing to see me - he sent an assistant, "Hollie", to listen to my gripe but his disinterest was palpable.

With the Dominicks now under Jewel control, what are walkers supposed to do? Jewel is a hideous company, with pricing policies ($3 each if you buy ten!) designed for suburbanites, not city apartment dwellers.

Come and join the Chicago New Democratic party.

    What the hell does that mean? Are you "occasionally conservative" on "racial issues"? Jesus!

  • Pro-capitalist is the biggest difference.

How Could They Get Dirty This Fast?

Wanted to have a Jimmy Johns for lunch today.

This location on Roosevelt, under the "L" tracks, has only been open about a year. But now they're shut due to vermin.

Interior Painter

Does anyone have a recommendation for a painting company for the south loop? It would be for painting basically everything in my 2 bed 2 bath condo along with doors and trim, and maybe kitchen cabinets.

    Be careful with Angie's List; it have become "pay to play" for contractors

  • Yeah, one of my contractors did mention that he had to pay and he didn't when he first joined Angies list. But that is between him and Angie. Whats important to me is the reviews from past clients. If Angie is making sure she gets a cut from all the business the vedors get because of her I might consider that being a good business person. I would be more cconcerned if venders were trying to pay clients for good reviews.

Best Internet?

Hey I'm new to these boards so sorry if this is not right. We are looking for just internet because we currently share with our basement neighbor and it's terrible. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • U Verse by AT&T is good. I've had their internet and wifi for about 6 years. The Pro & Elite speeds are awesome. I have the Pro speed. Good luck

  • We live at 18th and S. Calumet, and have ATT. They refuse (we've talked to C-level offices) to upgrade the antique copper wire they installed in 2003--to fiber optics. So best you can get is 12 mbps on WIFI in your home.

    I do NOT recommend them. When their in the field service people say the ATT level 18 mbps ATT sold us-- is UNavailable due to old hardware--it's lousy.
    We canceled Comcast within a week due to the story changing (lying) of their people. Remember the customer service call that went viral? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/22/comcast-earnings_n_5609755.html
