I haven't worked for MF in over a year, but then again I haven't worked for anyone else in over a year either. Had to take forced medical retirement. Starting to get better now just have to see how much I can make with out getting disallowed from disability.
The editors may also have different departments too so your food shop might be done by Susie who handles all food shops in your region and your retail shop might be handled by Joe who handles all retail shops for six regions and needed a day off to see his daughters recital. I'm making all that up, but even if you submit two shops at the same time, they may float on off to different editors and have different time frames, etc. for the editing process.
