Today is my Thursday. I am so looking forward to tomorrow being my Friday. Alas, I'm scheduled for one of those crappy 1 day weekends on Thursday. After that I'm working 2 on and 1 off for almost a week. I don't get a full 2 day weekend until may 19. I am really looking forward to those 2 days.
Yesterday I deal with a couple who had originally bought blinds with pull cords. Cordless blinds, the ones you just push up and pull down, are more expensive. Frugal customers opt for cords. There was just one problem with these corded blinds. The wife is tiny, not even close to being 4 feet tall, and the cords were too high for her to reach. This turned into a really big issue. I don't deal with complaints, so luckily I was out of the loop on this one. However, I was the one who had to redesign their blinds. They were nice, but took advantage of their problem and changed colors because they didn't like what they had originally chosen. Honestly, I really dislike dealing with Custom Blinds, but then I don't like them, Perhaps it's negativity of the word itself. There isn't a single blind in my house. I have drapes and curtains I can either pull open... or pull shut. There's no way I'm going to blind myself.
"He has already had Covid and has told me he figures he's got 8 - 10 months immunity, after which he just might get infected again." Wait, WHAT? Does he know that there's things called 'side effects'? Really. These people need to be Darwin-ed out.ReplyDelete
Don't worry, they're slowly succeeding at that.Delete
We have blinds. They have pull cords. They work just fine.ReplyDelete
But then, as Spo might say, I am well over four-feet-tall.
My dogs would tear blinds to pieces trying to look out the window.Delete
your co-worker is an asshole and deserves to die of COVID. yes, I went there.ReplyDelete
I just have curtains on my first floor windows. I kept the pull-down shades on the second floor windows when we moved in.
Curtains are great!Delete
And he was raised Republican, so I doubt if he has any hope of salvation.
This past year when the apartment got updated, my kitchen blinds came from Home Depot. One button raises and lowers the blind. I love them, and when down, they filter light so nicely, without making it depressingly dark.ReplyDelete
I've been very pleased.
Those sound like Hunter Douglas.. pricey.Delete
