For the most part, work was slow yesterday. I had several sales go through and got at least one measure, that should keep management happy. Sales, across the district, are still down. They're counting on Spring to put a little bounce in our figures. We will have to wait and see.
The large, orange retailer I work for did give everyone a big raise. It was a very good thing to do. Our starting rate is now higher than just about every other in retail. They're saying they chosen to invest in their associates. That may be true to some degree, but I also think it's an attempt to keep Unions at bay. For those who haven't been paying attention, Unions are making a comeback. Corporate America hates Unions since they tend to keep the billionaires in charge in check.
I watched Bros last night. Parts of it I liked, parts were weak. Billy Eichner sense of humor can be really hit or miss. He was terribly upset when the movie didn't smash the box office. While Bros played well in large cities, rural America ignored it partly because of the rating (R), but mostly, I think, because it was geared for a large city audience. Luke MacFarlane was decent as Aaron, staring in a number of Romcoms on the Hallmark Channel give him a good resume, but he and Eichner have zero chemistry. Perhaps if someone else had played the Eichner character, perhaps if this movie had gone through another few rewrites, perhaps if someone had realized that middle America doesn't find threesomes, or foursomes funny, this might have a been a good little movie. I usually post the trailer for a movie when I write about it, but... meh. So, here's a picture of Luke.
