Well, it's Monday - the start of a fresh, new work week. Flo is set to start pissing on us here in Central PA sometimes this morning. They say we are guaranteed at least 1.5 inches, possibly (probably) more; as much as 4 inches of rain are likely in some places. With that being said, I'm going to leave work once the rain starts so I can have my pump at the ready should my basement start flooding.
They're serving us breakfast this morning - the final part of our Success Sharing Celebration. Since I don't want to have to wait 3.5 hours until I eat, I made breakfast here. Oatmeal. For me, not eating until I get to work is not an option.
Yesterday I was told that the associate in my department who normally does the tile clinics is transferring to our store in Niagara Falls - that's where he's from, and so I've been scheduled to do the clinic this Saturday. I don't do clinics. I'm not a tile expert. I've done a small back splash - that's it. His clinics were 2 hour classes, he put out chairs so customers could sit while he educated. Mine may run 8 - 10 minutes. I do not have a massive knowledge base to draw from and am not going to be able to answer many questions. If they want someone to teach a class, they need to hire in a professional.
Oh, and I see that the Kavanaugh vote is now on hold. Of course, the white, male Republicans don't see why there's a problem. They don't understand they are sending a terrible message to women. Well, I should clarify that. At this #metoo moment in time, these Republican men are telling women they don't matter. They have no problem shitting away the facts. Their only concern is getting a conservative on the bench. Except... the event was so traumatic, his accuser has been in counseling for a short period a number of years ago. And, that's been documented. Ooops. They have no idea how bad this makes them look. Do they care? Hell, no. If they vote him onto the Supreme Court, the Blue Judgment will be larger, and for every conservative ruling that court makes, the Republican Party. They don't understand, this is just another part of their death knell.
