Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Dine on this

It's Sunday and those Thanksgiving sales people have already started wondering into the department.  They always ask which carpets are going on sale, or which laminates, or luxury vinyl planks.  The answer is always the same  "NADA."
I had one customer yesterday who told me he had purchased flooring from us 2 years ago at some ridiculously low cost and wanted to know why we weren't doing those kinds of discounts anymore.  Well, he was wrong.  No deep discounts in flooring for Black Friday.  Had he actually purchased from us 2 years ago, I could have pulled up his order and proven him wrong.  I was nice,  I didn't.
There was another customer who had purchased vinyl planks last year and questioned the price increase.  He want to purchase more.  I just looked him in the eye and said "China."  His face hardened a bit.  That was something he didn't want to hear because the American Consumer, according to the Idiot Jerk in the White House, is going to face the brunt of his tariffs.  I could have told him that once these tariff wars are over prices are not going to be coming back down, but that would have been rubbing salt into his wound.  The truth is... they're not coming back down.
Anyway, I saw where Louisiana re-elected their Democratic Governor.  Another off cycle election and another loss for the shit bag in the White House.  Anne Marie said it best: "everything he touches dies."  His base is... I suspect, staying home, away from the polls.  They're not going to vote him out of office, they're just not going to vote for him.  They are withering on the vine, so to speak.
On a brighter note, I got my dinosaur socks.


In the lower corner, you can see one on my left foot.  Those are not eyes looking at you.  They're chewy chompers waiting to take a bite.

  2. I saw a Tweet this morning where the Tweeter listed a bunch of GOP Senators and Congressman and asked _____ to campaign for them, too.
    Once the GOP sees his stranglehold is weakening, they'll turn tail and run from him.

    1. His campaigning for them is turning out to be a big asset for the Blue Wave.

  3. Why not show us a pic of you wearing them? I often wonder if you are in "cyclist" shape, if you say yes, we need evidence. Yes... I'm a brat.

    1. I'm not skinny lean, if that's what you're asking. I've never been photogenic so usually what people see is my foot, or my arm, and, on that rare occasion, maybe an elbow.

  5. Did you hear today that Trump went to Walter Reed hospital for an unscheduled visit yesterday (Saturday) "just because" and had lab work done?
    Things that make you go "Hmmmmmmmm!!!"

    1. Yes, I saw that. I'm sure his stress levels are going through the roof.

  6. OMG love the socks! And I've never understood the hunt for 'deals'. Those are not markdowns, are they really deep discounts?
    And you are right, everything Cheeto touches, dies. That's what I fear America will suffer if he's not taken away in handcuffs.

    XOXO
