Wednesday... and my sort of hump day... but not quite. I have off tomorrow, then 2 more days of work followed by 3 days off. That's fine with me.
I had to sit down with the new scheduler yesterday and rework my 'jury duty' schedule. She had me working. Can't do that. You get scheduled off for the entire week. If I'm only there for 1 or 2 days, then she gets to put me back on the schedule. She's new, and as someone who did her job, it's very, very complicated. Right now she's prepping for Spring hiring. For those of you who don't know, Spring hiring is when someone flips a rock over and the bottom dwellers come out and apply for jobs. Back, when I was doing her job at the Carlisle store, we hired a young man with a moderately low IQ for a loader / lot attendant position. Little did we know he had a bad habit of barking like a dog. That's right... woof, woof... bark, bark. He didn't go over well with customers. He was a nice kid, otherwise. I felt bad when he got fired, but you can't bark at customers while you're loading their mulch.
I think it's funny how advertisers are either pausing or stopping their ads on both Tucker's and Jeanine's racist, right wingnut shows. Faux News says they will not let these two outspoken voices be censored. Faux News needs to learn this is not censorship. Advertisers don't just whimsically drop their advertising, a lot of their decisions are based on their 'target' audience. If that 'audience' complains, or even worse, begins to turn off shows where the talking heads bark every time the Idiot Jerk snaps his fingers, advertisers are going to spend their money elsewhere. There was a time when such controversy drew an audience, not any more. Those viewers who stay loyal will be those who are best described as white, racist, misogynistic, supporters of the Idiot Jerk in the White House. They will always bark when he snaps his fingers...
And what about those celebrities, and sports figures who were paying for their kids to cheat their way into what might be considered an 'elite' college. It wasn't just celebrities and sports figures who were forking over the cash, anyone who could afford the buckos was cheating their way in. Tells you a lot about their kids, doesn't it? Not too smart, or lazy as hell, or most likely both. Just because you managed to buy your kid a degree from an 'elite' school doesn't mean he's going to stop barking like a dog.
For those who aren't aware, I know a little bit about barking dogs. I have 2. They bark to scare the evil bunnies from the yard. They bark at the stranger who walks down the street. They will have to go outside. Sometimes Big Seig will stand in the middle of the back yard and bark. He is telling the world "I am here, and I am Big Seig." However, my dogs never bark when I snap my fingers. They are much too intelligent to do that.
