Well, Monday has arrived and I don't have to go into work today. That doesn't mean I'm not going to be doing anything. Yard work is planned. In the dining room, I have to pull the table front, replace the quarter round, and get that section of trim painted; as well as hang the tapestry and the mirror at the foot of the staircase. Oh, and I want to see if I can get an 18 mile ride in... hopefully.
Yesterday I had the displeasure of selling some cheap indoor / outdoor carpet to a woman who refused to listen to what I said. Initially she had picked up a pre-cut roll (6' x 8'). However, she saw "a better quality of carpet" on the 6 foot rolls we cut. I told her that it was the same carpet, but not everybody wants 8 feet. And she said, "no, the carpet on the rolls is better. You can almost see through the pre-cut carpet." It's the same thing, more like Felt then carpet. Oh, and it's more expensive when we have to cut it. She totally refused to understand, and so I cut her a section that was...(are you ready for this?) 6' x 8'. After it was cut, she lifted the corner up and said, "oh, you can almost see through this." And I said, "yes, it's the same carpet." I have no problem when stupid people end up paying more money they they need to because they're... well... stupid.
And evidently Dense Pence is speaking at the annual NRA gathering in Dallas on Friday and there will be no firearms allowed in the arena. The NRA has no problem with this. Can you smell the hypocrisy in the air? Supposedly some gun enthusiasts smell it too, but most will have no problem surrendering their weapons. They will all be sitting targets in that arena, and none of them will care. These people are phony as hell. One of the things which make the above article so... amusing, is a comment by some Idiot Jerk supporter about Hilary still not being in jail.... Which is the kind of thing I'd expect to hear from the woman who bought rolled indoor / outdoor carpet because she thought I didn't know what I was talking about. Wait... no, that's not right. That's giving the supporter way too much credit. That woman is an embarrassment to America. She proves stupidity has no bounds... especially if you're a conservative.
