Yesterday the sun went behind the clouds and we had hard rain. Lotsa rain. Rain so heavy we could hear it pounding down on the roof of the store. Looking out the front windows, you might think we were sitting at the foot of a waterfall. When I got home, I found the veranda strewn with maple leaves from the tree behind the house.
We have a 41% of getting more rain today. Probably the rain Kentucky didn't want.
One of my fellow flooring associates handed in his 2-week notice. No loss.
The store is getting a renovation in September, so we have a number of people pushing carts around the store packed with laptops and equipment, taking pictures, and using lasers to measure distances. At present we have 4 twelve-foot carpet carousels, one that's 6 feet wide, and a vinyl sheet carousel. Cutting carpet and vinyl for customers is unwieldy and tedious (I'm being nice). After September we will have 2 carousels, one for carpet and one for vinyl sheeting. On some days we will set 4 or 5 cuts of carpet or vinyl, but there are many days when we don't cut any making the space a merchandising black hole. No one at the flooring desk is upset about the coming changes.

And for a Wow! moment, it seems that a lot more messages and texts have disappeared. Phones were evidently reset in Homeland Security as well as the Secret Service. Were they active participants of the insurrection, or did they just ignore it? We do know that Trump popped in as many loyalists as possible because that's what wannabe dictators do, try and stack the deck in their favor. I do think we came closer to having a coup than most Americans realize.
Shameful about the veterans benefits being voted down. Maybe it will piss off the Repugs base enough to let them see the light.ReplyDelete
They are so used to saying, 'shut up, we're in charge,' I don't think they understand how much they are being scrutinized by the American public, especially after Trump. His election may actually destroy the Republican party.Delete
Where I worked we had so many economists/lawyers etc. working for us and teaching on the sidelines. They were supposed to declare the amounts and give it to the staff assistance fund but most never did! Double dipping at its worst!ReplyDelete
Isn't that always the case?Delete
Remember this: after that vote yesterday the GOP doesn't give a flying fuck about veterans.ReplyDelete
After their support of the insurrection, the GOP does not give a flying fuck about police officers.
Personally I have zero fucks for Alito and Thomas. They can both fuck all the way off.
Truth. All they want to do is say 'shut up, we're in charge.' It seems as though a day doesn't go by when they don't shit in their pants.Delete
I had to look it up. There is no French word of dickhead. The closest is connard which refers to the opening on the other side of the body. But you could always use tete de bite which refers to the end/tip of the male appendage. Or you could just say what you said. They (the Repubs) would never understand anyway. That would take a decent grade school education.ReplyDelete
Thanks! That made me laugh loudly. I think the proper French way would be to say tete du penis (don't pronounce the s), and you're right, they'd never understand.Delete
Alito probably spoke at a Mussolini conventionReplyDelete
It was some sort of ultra-conservative friar's club meeting, I think. He sounds like he's really 'up' for a good inquisition.Delete
