And here it is, Sunday, and the forecast is for rain. It actually sounds ominous, however, the total rainfall predicted is less than an inch. If there were calling for 2 inches or 3 inches then there would be a bit of a reason for concern. That being said, the rain is supposed to continue on and off until Thursday, so by then flooding might be a bit of an issue.
Yesterday's sales were good at the orange home improvement retailer that I work for, easily enough to make plan. Today is the last day of the fiscal quarter so they are pushing us to close as many sales as possible. I am not on board that bandwagon. If someone comes in and wants to purchase an installation, I'll sell it to them, but I'm not going to go out of my way to do so. Today's Sunday, for some this is a Holy day, for that reason I don't make phone calls on Sunday, something we are expected to do. I don't call on holidays, either. One of our tenets is to have respect for all people, which includes their beliefs as well, Yet they do expect me to be disrespectful in order for them to make their sales' plan.
There's been a lot in the news about different diets and how healthy they are for your heart. Not surprisingly, the Ketone, the Atkins, and the Paleo diets do not score well. I have to laugh at the Paleo diet. Hunter gatherers did not live long, healthy lives, mostly because they had to worry about being some predator's dinner. It turns out the Mediterranean diet still figures to be one of the best. I follow it, somewhat. I'm not wild about having to eat a lot of legumes.
Good for you for not making calls on Sunday. I'm not religous but I would NOT appreciate getting called on a Sunday (or later in the evening either). Still I solved that problem by unplugging my home phone about five months ago and it's easy enough to block unwanted calls on my mobile. Problem (almost) solved!ReplyDelete
I haven't made them for some time. My land line was gone years ago, though I still get spam calls on my cell phone.Delete
We had a nice day in Philadelphia ... and surprisingly not rainy but cloudy... the sun made an appearance mid-day.ReplyDelete
A customer stopped by the flooring desk and let me know the temps were also a10 degrees warmer in Philly.Delete
