What can I say about yesterday besides work was slow. I did have an elderly woman come in to buy carpet, she had purchased carpet and an install from us 9 years ago. She was a little upset that we no longer carried that style anymore. In fact, there were a number of things she had issues with including cost. In 2013 she paid $1.33 a square foot, even back then that was fairly inexpensive carpet, and she was, again, looking at inexpensive carpets. Since I can see the notes made by the specialists 9 years ago, I knew she had registered complaints about many things in order to drive down the cost. Not wanting to have to deal with a repeat of these issues, I simply signed out sample boards, deciding I'd let someone else sell her the measure she needed for the install.
Last evening I watched the first 4 episodes of The Expanse. This is the series last season and will only have 6 episodes. As such, I was expecting them to be longer, which was not the case. The longest barely topped 50 minutes. In a few weeks I'll watch the last 2 episodes.
I received a Christmas card from a friend yesterday. It's been years. Since I stopped buying cards years ago. My sister, however, gave me some nice stationary a long time ago so I'll jot down my 'thank yous' on some nice note paper and send it off.
Today, since I've planned nothing, I'll probably get around to baking those spice cookies.
Also, if the forecasters are correct, Central PA should be getting 3-6 inches of snow on Friday, another one of my days off.
Those crazies can stick together! It will just be another day of them embarrassing themselves and not caring.ReplyDelete
I often find that the last seasons of show ending are often rushed and aren't as good as their runs were.
Like Game of Thrones, The Expanse is based on a series of books, and they've got a few books to go... and, of course, now there's talk about it continuing.Delete
Seeing that you could see the previous notes on that customer reminded me of my sister when she worked in a large grocery store. Every week a particular old man used to come in and every week he realized he'd "left a pound of cheddar cheese at the check-out". It was always replaced, no questions asked. This used to drive my sister nuts so she used to look out for him and dash over to the check-out to make sure he "hadn't forgotten anything this time". Management didn't agree with her tactics (but they got a good chuckle out of it) and suddenly he no longer forgot his cheese! Small victories eh!ReplyDelete
The notes come in quite handy especially with repeat customs who are not the most honest.Delete
Max is trying to get me to watch The Expanse. I remember watching a couple episodes than forgetting about it. Maybe I need to return to it.ReplyDelete
I find it interesting, though this season they're dropping a new episode weekly, so I wait until several have dropped before watching it.Delete
Love the snow!ReplyDelete
Poor Marge, pretty soon she'll be sitting a corner all alone ranting about Nazis and Free Speech and guns and no one will hear her.
