Bluntness

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

Laundry Day

Well, say hello to Sunday.  Right now the temp is sitting at a brisk 32 (F) or 0(C) for everybody else in the world who uses Celsius rather than Fahrenheit.  Yesterday?  It was damn cold and windy.  We had snow squalls.  Lots of snow squalls.  They came and they went.  Since I'm doing a potted garden this year, I brought all my plants inside the house.
At the store, they waited in line outside... 6 feet (approx 2 meters) apart, in the wind and snow.  Sorry folks, that is not my idea of fun... or of getting out.  Nope.  The day before I did curbside delivery for a bit, yesterday I went out and got shopping carts.  People love to push around shopping carts.  Some actually put things into them, most don't.  You'll see a paint brush, or an electric switch, or light bulbs.  A lot of people seem to enjoy walking up and down our aisles pushing a cart with nothing more than a light bulb, or an extension cord.  You know what I'm talking about?  The real heavy items that weigh you down and make walking difficult.
Today I'm supposed to be a Cashier...  There's no one scheduled in Flooring until after I leave.  Great scheduling.
Here in America it's Mother's Day, one of those faux holidays created by Hallmark to sell greeting cards.  Now, I'm not saying having one day out of the year to make Moms special is bad, I just wish everybody and their brother wasn't trying to sell you something Mom is never going to use.  You see, it's not really about Mom at all.  This faux holiday is based on one thing and one thing alone, getting you to buy stuff, preferably on credit so you can pay interest.  Wouldn't it be nice if just for once someone would say "make you Mom feel special today... do the laundry?"

Now, isn't that nice, a front loader
As for the Idiot Jerk in the White House, he's definitely trying to send the country to the cleaners.  He's put himself into a bit of a conundrum, with his early back to work message.  He says it's safe, but lives are still being lost.  Covid - 19 has invaded the White House and he walks around without a mask.  Let's be honest here.  Let's be honest since he can't be, you know that when the cameras are off he's wearing a full body hazzmat suit.  Be prepared, as the body count rises, his lies are going to get worse and worse.  He may send us to the cleaners, but let me tell you, we are definitely going to put the starch in his ass come this November!

  3. You had SNOW???? Oh my word. And I always figured our weather was similar to PA. We're supposed to get cooler weather next week but it'll still be in the 60s. And I have to admit I was guilty of pushing a shopping trolley round the other week with only 3 small things in it as I decided to go somewhere else. Guilty as charged!

    1. Snow and very cold. I'm doing a potted garden this year so I'd brought all the plants into the house.

  4. Dave, if you look like that guy I will come down there and do your laundry for you as long as you stay in your undies!
    Yes, we had snow and sleet all day yesterday, it's still freezing out today.
    Let trump and pence be stubborn (or is it stupid) and walk around all day with no mask, good for them!

    1. No sleet, but serious snow squalls.

      No, I don't look like that guy, but if you know someone who does and he wants to put in application, let me know.

      And they're not stubborn, just stupid.

  5. Yeah we had snow squalls at 8 p.m. with the sun still out yesterday. It just didn't seem right. Today we are getting rain.

    1. Today was nice, up in the mid 60's, the next 3 days we're going to have March weather.

  6. The COVID-19 explosion in the White House is so appropriate. Really. It's a cesspool already so...
    I did send some Mother's Day cards and greetings. I know some very cool moms.
    And the weather is crazy. It was chilly here yesterday but no snow in my neck of the woods. Some parts of Chicago did get a little. Did not stick, though.
    I like your front loader, BTW.

    XOXO

    1. Yes, I find the virus in the White House rather amusing since they thought they were special. You'd think this moron would know by now Karma is going against him.
