                              Can anyone tell me what ever happened to the Hero Sandwich ?   Today they will refer to it as a ‘Sub’ or a Hoagy.  However in N.Y. at one time it only went by one name and one name only “A Hero Sandwich .”All that went to the way side.. Gone are the days went you orderd a Hero  at an Italian Eatery and they accually hollowed out the center of the bread to load it up with more stuff. What I dispise and  loath is when you order a Hero and instead  of puting the Veal Parm or Egg plant in a  some sort of baking dish in order to heat up… They place it right on the bread itself  to heat.  To me that just leads us to believe that they don’t get a fresh  bread delivery on a daily basis.  When they do that all I can say is that it leaves a lot to be desired and I don’t care for it one bit. Then there is the club sandwich  (   which is also some sort of a Hero Sandwhich ) That can found at  any Jewish Deli ..At one time  it was also a Huge Sandwich, well those days are long gone now.  Today it has become a  very small  sandwhich .They slice the bread on the bias to make it appear larger (their fooling no one) plus every  Jewish or German Style Deli as their slicing the Cold Cuts for their sandwiches the meat immediatly hits a scale ..They maintain the exact weight that goes on your sandwich not a speck more . They  have it down to an exact science. Today’s ” Finnally there is  dressed sandwich.. That only means more lettuce and tomato less meat.  The Hero Sandwhich is not what made the hero sandwhich famous for. I yearn for the days of old .

Sad To Say America Will Always Remain an Obese Society.

Weird Al Yankovic – i’m Fat Light Orchid

     It’s a very sad commentary on the American way of life.. Those fortunate enough to reside here in the U.S.A.  We have the best supermarkets than any country on Earth.. Our meat and produce supply is unlimited. However it’s not the high Fructose Cornell Syrup that’s doing us all in.. Its the amount of unnecessary garbage  that we are consuming.
     When I was Growing up in the 1950″s you were lucky if you had 10 varieties of breakfast cereal on the grocers shelves.. Today the supply tremendous, one can go to any supermarket and you’ll see an entire row dedicated to just breakfast cereal. Bakery products that’s another culprit. Every supermarket has its own fresh bakery on premises.. Plus the pre made package cakes cookies and donuts the amount of shelf space that they get us staggering.
    The potato chip isle  is another one of the culprits it extends from here to next week.  When I was Growing  up we were a family of  four and we only had a quart bottle of soda between us four at the supper table..and there as still some left over, today people are drinking soda like crazy. The amount and variety of restaurants and eateries is staggering.. America is the culinary capital  ON Earth.. No other NATION has the amount of different ethnic restaurants than in the America. I get highly annoyed when someone from another nation comes to America and some putz takes them to a Mc Donalds to show off American food. The amount of all your can eat buffets are just unbelievable.. What a concept “all you can eat” you’ll find it nowhere but here.
     All the exercise at the gym doesn’t men squat.. No body growing up everybody  plays   ball  anymore today.  When I was Growing up everyone played ball or some street or sand lot sport of some kind.  Today nobody puts down their smart phone.. You wanna loose weight then you have to one important exercise…

Today’s Car Washes Are Way Out of Line..

Rose Royce – Car washRose Royce – Car wash

Image result for extra news boy cartoon sign 
         I don’t know arbout you but I like a clean car and bring it into the car wash every 2 weeks. Now they  are getting way out of line with their prices. They charge  for a full wash includng, wax ,interier and tire shine  $24.00 plus I always  leave the workers a $3.00 tip.. Now the  workers in the back end that clean your wheels before they drive your car on to the belt have their hands out for a tip too ..They put up a sign “We do not share Tips with the front end workers and they started dispalying  a big clear Tip Jar..If its busy  I make believe that I drop a  Dollar Bill in the Jar, but if it’s slow like when I’m the first custmer in the morning I can’t get away with that and have to throw a buck in the Jar. That brings  the tariff up to $28.00, tax and tip included. The straw that broke the Camels Back was when I witnessed the workers cleaning my wheels with that heavy rough wisk utility broom and as they were done with the wheels preceded to use the broom on my hood and doors..They holla “Brushless car  wash” bull.. By the way it’s the same way at every car wash facilty. Now all these  car wash places hire immagrant  workers and I will say this right from the start “That They are the hardest workers in America’ but get paid very little just like all ther restaurants do  with their employees.. however the owners  charge a premium price on their services, Simply Outrageous. High time to boycott the car car wash places untill they lower thier  prices…remember when they all used to charge extra for SUV’s until the public stayed away and then they all stopped that charge.
Listen that $56.00 a month I concider that a big hit in my wallet don’t you ?

   Image result for extra news boy cartoon sign     First off let us say right from the get go that We at The lerman Report are 100 % for Womans rights..However it has come to or attention that many of these so called right groups are being disingenuous as their true agenda . At each and every rally for any cause thier are paid protestors or agitators who are nothing more than shills there to work up the crowd. We became suspicius when at every rally we can see the Palestinan flag being waved all over the place..this and other far left issues have absolutley nothing to do with ”Womans Rights”..We obtained a copy of ‘Womams Rights” platform and it seems that they have a hidden agenda Amoung one of these hidden agendas items are US ‘Women’s Strike’ platform calls for ‘decolonization of Palestine’ .This has absolutly nothing whatsover to do with womans rights issues..The public is being dupped by this and many other  organizations..We urge everyone to get acquainted  with each and ever organiztions platform before you lend either your them your finnacial support or join one of their picket lines.  We have listed the link showing this below.

Suggestive Sales.. You like it.. I Don’t

Image result for hand reaching out for money picture
      Image result for extra news boy cartoon sign          The first time someone pulled the “suggested sales”  crap on me was when I was at Roy Rogers Roast Beef a while back.. I was on line ordering my meal and the counter person then said to me “would you like an apple pie with your order”? Sure I replied.. Low & Behold when I went to pay my bill the apple pie we charged to me.. I Complained” Hey  what’s going on why did you charge me for Apple pie? She replied back well you ordered it.. No I didn’t  you asked me if I wanted it I was under the impression that it was a  complementry gift. That was the first & last time That I fell for that.
  To make matters worse when I brought my car in for an  oil change.. The service technician or whatever you call him comes over to me with a little square price of paper with a bullseye drawn on it with a drop  oil.. He says to me while showing me that bullseye with the oil   & says “when’s the last time you changed your transmission fluid”?, I replied back” Are you telling me that there’s a problem? No he replied just asking (auto transmission fluid doesn’t have to be changed maybe for a taxi with over 100,000 miles)  I replied “Then why are you implying that somethings not right” . Or they come out with your air filter trying to scare you into buying one by them for  & 45 when you can pick one up at Pep Boys for half that.
It’s Descepitive its just plain not right. The worst is when they try to hit you up for a donation “would you like to give you Jerry’s Kids or some other organization” this happens even at Walmart.. I always reply that I shop at Walmart to save money not to give it away. I donate plenty to charity at home and in my house of worship.. If you doubt me send a self addressed stamped envelope to me and I will supply you with the documentation… But it’s not their buisness to be a conduit for charity . They want to come on T. V. and say” Hey look what we collected”..If they want  to play the big shot then let them use there own money. STOP SUGGESTIVE SALES NOW!

Handicaped Parking Has Become a Bunch of Bull…

Image result for handicap permit pictureImage result for man running to catch a train picture

Chuck Berry – Run Rudolph Run (1958)Light Orchid

Image result for extra news boy cartoon sign   Handicaped  Parking was first implemented for those Motorists and family members who are passengers who can perhaps need a close up parking  spot as to lessen their walking to  distance to & from the store or facility that they are going to.. It has morphed into a major bunch of Bull. While there are many who are in need if it there are others that abuse the system. It is very easy to aquire a Handicaped sticker in any locality nationwide. Years ago it basically was for the wheelchair bound.. Those parameters have changed.. I see people who post a Handicaped  sticker on their car and run to catch a train.. Thats a shame.. They are undeserving, however they hand these permits real easy today. Sad to say any schmuck and his brother can obtain one today. I was at a local Horse Racing Track and what appeared  be a healthy fit  gentleman parks his car in a handicaped spot , thou he had a regulation permit hanging from his visor he ran like a theif to make the first race..The security guard seeing where he parked and witnessed the mad dash to get in the Raceway  yelled out to him “HEY WHATS YOUR HANDICAPE ? ‘  The running man yells back “WHAT RACE?

Men’s Haircuts” How Times Have Changed..

Image result for 1950
1949 Jerry Gray – Crew Cut (instrumental)Light Orchid
Image result for extra news boy cartoon sign
      I remember growing up on the 1950’s..Every Man or boy had to have a fresh haircut once a month. If by any chance you had a special event to go to  in between that month such as Wedding, Bar mitzvah, Graduation, Funeral whatever you got another haircut. That’s the way it was back in the Old days. If your mother wasn’t on your case for getting a haircut then there was always a friend or relative that would steam up your mother my  mother had such a friend for the purpose of this story I shall omit her real name a refer to her as Gertrude  “You let your son walk around like that, without a  haircut “Yelled Gertrude to my mother.My mother would reply back “He don’t want to go to the barber what could I do?  Gertrude replied back” whose the boss you or him.. and my mother would give me instructions “Here’s the haircut money don’t come home with out one. You see  nobody wanted to there years ago…the Barber Shops were hit and miss as far as getting a good haircut   ..you’d  walk in perhaps hair a bit long but none the less lookin great …but  and you walk out looking like a shmuck/
What struck out most was the Unacceptance of the Square Back as apposed to a tapered cut. In the 1950’s only the rough crowd.. The punks.. The hoodlums all had square Backs. Gertrude pointed out to my mother some unsavory teenage punks in our apartment building who sported square backs…. Gertrude steamed up my mother & my mother told me when I came home from the Barber with one.. My mother made me go back and get it tapered I can’t tell you how many times that I heard the snide remark” ” What are you posing for Holy pictures or do you want a violin “?  Today you can see even  rabbi”s wearing  a square back..boy have times changed !
  When I was in the service I came home on leave in Dec.27th 1967 and returned to my duty station Jan.12th 1968 everyone had clean cut Haircuts.. I  stationed in North Carolina & I used to phone home home every Saturday  It’s Mid February  and I phone I call home & my father asked are you growing your hair long?  I  replied back that I have a crew cut plus every Monday we gave an inspection we gave to get white walls( high and close) My father informed me that  everyone is letting their hair grow  long with long hair long sideburns  too. When  I retured to N.Y.C. in March of 1968 long hair was the norm..even the old generations stopped going to the barbershop . Today  haircuts are in..I JUST THOUGHT THAT  I”D TELL EVERYONE HOW IT WAS BACK IN THE DAY !

Franchises and Resold Retail Business’s…Let The Buyer Beware !!!

Image result for storefront pictures
     “You Cheated You Lied”Light Orchid


Image result for extra news boy cartoon sign  
     If your  contemplating buying a franchise or resold retail store..watch out !!! I’m going to tell you the facts of life concerning these two type  of  entities..So  listen up people…  If you want to be a first time  retailer and don’t have a good friend or relative who can  show you the roops &, guide you setting  up a new buisness and believe me there’s a lot of things that have to be considered.. From  buying shelving to product and  also it may require some training such as cooking, baking,  dry cleaning, you name, it & guess What?   If you have absolutely no knowledge from what I just mentioned then  you either have to go and buy into a Franchise or Resale buisness .You’ll be at their mercy and believe me whichever one that  you choose your going to be raked over the hot coals. So my  good friends hold on tight because your going to be in for a rude awakening.
For the purpose of this article I’m going  to omit the names the of the franchise to protect my $10,000,000 in my bank  (lol I only wish)
My parents personaly were good friends with a couple who lost their life savings on such a venture.  They bought in to a franchise which was an eatery which will remain nameless all that I’ll say that it was on a busy truck  route. The husband thought his hired help were stealing from register as he was busy  land office style busy all day..So he worked the cash register  himself..He then had a wake up call.  When you  buy a franchise lets say for  example for 50,000..you  put down lets say  for arguments sake $20,000 & pay out the  remaining $30,000…On top of that there is a franchise fee plus you must buy all your products from the Franchising Corporation including such incidentals which you can purchase  elsewhere for a fraction if the price you such as paper napkins, plastic knives, spoons and forks and boy do you  get a forking ..and yes they require a minimum order. Well he then decided too sell hot dogs and soup..It wasnt to long before the franchise Corp. got wind of that and told him that only their products can be sold in his store..he then snuck in products  and again they warned him ..the 3rd time they threw him out & what ever amount of money  he put into the business at that point was down the drain..lost.. Yes he did violate the franchise agrerement but  he sort if had no choice it paramount to a scam. It was the same with most franchises the hours you put in your giving them  your life savings to and if you figured out   ..your accually working for minium wage.
Today they  work it a bit different.they make you purchase 5 or 6 places and lets face it the only one who can afford that is an Investmant Broker for a Doctors group as a tax right off.
Second is the retail busisness.. At one time a young man purchase a candy store for instance and sold it when he was an old man ready to retire..I remember going into a dog food store for sale..I waited in the parking lot for an hour before I walked in to his store..I was inside talking to him for a good 45 minutes and not a living soul came in…I also eyed the inventory on the shelves and back room and estimated it not to have been more than $500 total.. He had told me he rakes in $6,000 a week in sales alone .. I asked then  why are you selling the place?  he replied back to me in a weak voice “Im very sick Im not well and may die soon ” I then said ”Can I go to your doctor and review your chart to see if you are as sick as you claim to be  ?’ No way he replied back but this time in a load strong hefty  voice..Bottom line he was  full of crap..and 99 % all retail sale of business are phoney too.   These above mentioned stories are only an example  for whats in store…..LET THE BUYER BEWARE !

Please Present Coupon Before Ordering…

Image result for fast food COUNTER pictures
Have you ever been to a fast food or any resturant that advertisers some sort of special with a coupon..they most always say” present coupon before ordering “
Now let me ask you have you ever ordered the food item at some eatery and item on sale but or presented it to them as your paying and they give you  a bit of an agreement time “hey you were supposed to present the coupon before ordering”
The simple reason is that when you have a coupon for let’s say a sandwich when you present the coupon  upon  ordering they have a smaller sandwich to give you..So be smart..always give the restaurant the coupon after they serve you  when you pay the chasier.
