And I do know about customers. Yesterday I rather robust woman stopped by the flooring desk. She was looking for a specific Dyson, a $700 Dyson, and while we carry that particular vacuum online, it is not in the store. That was not what she wanted to hear. She gave me a salty little sneer and said "Well, I guess I'm going to have to go to Lowes." She thought she was jamming a nasty little barb into my retail heart, having to go to a competitor. She failed. Customers regularly use this threat when they we don't carry what they're looking for... like a purple toilet seat. We usually smile and say "go right ahead."

We may get an inkling or two from the Mueller investigation today. I know some were a little peeved that there were no more forthcoming indictments. Let's be honest here, you can't indict someone for being a dumb fuck, which is the perfect description of not only the Idiot Jerk, but of his spawn as well. They're loud, and they're vulgar, and all of them have an IQ on par with being a cretin. As either Donnie Jr, or Eric a question and their first response is a vacant stare.
The first reader is going to get "The Body in the Tower" today. She will also get a highlighter and an ink pen. Her job is to look for things that don't quite jive in the continuity of the story line, to ensure I haven't strayed into some strange little literary tangent having nothing to do with subject, or where the exposition becomes overtly flowery.
