Well, Black Friday is officially over. We were busy, but super busy, not like it used to be. The giant home improvement retailer I work for now opens at their standard time. White we do have seemingly miles of aisles of product (junk), our major revenue categories are: appliances (best time of the year to buy one), hardware (everybody needs a tool), and garden (deck the halls and all that jazz). This isn't to say customers don't buy the specialty products (junk) we stock our aisles with, they do, but basically they shop for something in one of those 3 specialty categories.
There were times when our store was busy, but never over crowded. There were no long lines at the registers. And, as always on holidays, the fed us. This year we had immigrant food. What is immigrant food? We had tacos - both soft and hard, and nachos... lots of nachos. We will probably have nachos for days to come. That's fine. And it's immigrant food because many Americans embrace these foods from south of the border. Sadly, for America, there are some people who like the food but not the people. They are called racists. We have one in the White House. He would love a world without Latinos. Luckily for America, that will never happen. Brown skin and black skin are here to stay.
Oh, and don't look at your 401k!!! Last week was not good for those intending to retire in the coming months.
The weather this AM is supposed to be on the shitty side, a little freezing rain is supposed to start just as I leave for work. This is fine. It will turn to rain as the temps heat up. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice, with the temps up in the 50's (F), and I'm off. Some stuff is planned. And no, I'm not planning on reading the new Federal Government Climate Report which damns everything the Idiot Jerk in the White House is doing. You have to remember, the Idiot Jerk is all about Greed. The idea that there will be a price to pay for everything doesn't even occur to him, and, if for some chance it should, he will spit out "that bill will be long due after I'm dead." What an asswipe.
