Maybe we here in Central PA should all start singing Stormy Weather since yesterday was a replay of the day before, in fact, our weather patterns seem to be stuck in reruns. The same pattern is predicted to happen today: a rise in humidity followed by storms, some of which are accompanied by thunder and lightning. Keep in mind, we are getting lots of much needed rain. My lawn is green!
I had to deal with a customer yesterday who is... was not too wise. She has dogs who pee on the floor, so she had her carpet removed and had cheap laminate installed. How cheap, just a smidgen above the crap we won't install because it's simply too cheap. The product she chose is so cheap our measurement service refused to build a quote, so I had them build a quote with one product and then substituted the correct product. She sat by the flooring desk and played games on her phone while I rebuilt her quote. She can afford better, but she's one of those people who thinks cost doesn't matter, that the same quality is there no matter how inexpensive the product. Within a year, because her dogs will be peeing on that flooring, it will warp and soak in the dog pee, and it will start to stink, and she'll have to replace it. She is going to get what she paid for.
So, today is a holiday that isn't a holiday. For some, this will be the official paid holiday, for others it will be tomorrow. Some business will be closed today so their employees can have 3 or 4 day weekends, others will not. Today they will be grilling hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken at the store, tomorrow they will not... at least nothing's in the plans so far for tomorrow. Since I work today, I won't have to take a lunch. Since I'm off tomorrow, I don't really care. So, if you're scheduled off today and get holiday pay, have a Happy Fourth (Pt 1).
