    Oh ya, my top excuses ABS will miss:

    1.) the every quarter 1 time charge so wee do not show GAAP numbers. Due to store closing and purchase of Shaws and Bristol Farms

    2.) Price of gas will definitely be at the top

    3.) Residual effect of Southern CA stike, and promotions needed to bring back customers will effect margins.

    4.) Competition caused ABS to cut margins.. (even though sales growth did not appear.)

    5.) Turnover

    6) Weather... It will be used somewhere for weak sales.

    7) Easter on the wrong Sunday for optimal sales for the quarter... We will speak to the Catholic Church and the new Pope about that one.

    8) LJ got paid less, you get what you give.

    9) Shoppers expecting customer service, we surprised them.

    10.) Our golf games improved at the cost of sales.
