Okay, I was wrong. Management did choose to drape thick, black plastic over our Black Friday Specials. Some people find this quaint. Yesterday an older woman asked me about the black, low density polyethylene so I told her "Black Friday." She smiled because she thought it was cute. Go figure.
Yesterday was slow. Not excruciatingly, but those days are coming. The same thing happens every year. Sales have always been cyclical. Of course, corporate doesn't let that get in the way of setting budgets. The Sales Plan does go down, but never as much as the plan from the previous year. In retail there is always an increase. We have to keep those stockholders happy.
A judge has ruled that the Idiot Jerk in the White House can not keep witnesses from testifying. The line that stood out most to me was "the president is not a king." The sad truth is that the one MAGA elected wants to be more than a king. He wants to be a dictator. You can bet this decision is going to the Supreme Court. This is why he tried to put in as many Conservative judges as possible, to protect his sorry ass.
And once again Rudy Gazooty said he's not worried. He has insurance. I'm wondering if that might be a copy of the Golden Shower Tape. If not that, then some other juicy tidbit detailing how the Idiot Jerk compromised himself with the Russians. He evidently doesn't seem to be too worried, so maybe behind the scenes he's talking to the Democrats about becoming a State's Witness. That threat would no doubt sent shivers down the the Idiot Jerk's corpulent torso, shaking all of that jelly from Hell.
My Marlowe has arrived.
I set myself up for a subscription. If I don't like it, I'll just cancel. This is how life is.
Finally, customers began buying live Christmas Trees yesterday. They want them up for Thanksgiving. Impress the relatives, you know? Look! Live tree! In 3 weeks they'll be hearing dead pine needles falling to the floor. You only need one to start a cascade. And in 4 weeks their floor will be covered with them. Live trees belong in the forest.
I do love the fact it was a female judge was said "the president is not a king."ReplyDelete
_____ loathes having women tell him he's wrong.
Yes, the whole thing is something you want to wrap up and cherish.Delete
I don't see the appeal of a real Christmas tree actually (well maybe they smell nice, I don't know). When we first got married and moved to D.C. we were broke (both looking for jobs) and we spent our last $200 on an artificial tree and it's still going strong 34 years later (lasted longer than the marriage actually)!. And I suspect those with pets REALLY don't need the needles all over the place do they!ReplyDelete
The needles are okay if you have a hardwood floor, otherwise they're really hell.Delete
Cheeto has always been convinced that him and his family are untouchable. For real. That’s what he used to say about Obama. And you know how jealous of Barack he was.ReplyDelete
Love trees do belong in the forest! I also heard live trees indoors are a fire hazard, but let hem do anything to impress the relative they only see once a year.
Barack? yes, the last president who didn't need the electoral college to get into the white house... twice.Delete
Don't get me wrong...i love Christmas, but can we enjpy the splendor of one holiday at a time? And won't a live tree be dead by then even with water?ReplyDelete
Yes, a live tree will be deader than a door-nail by Christmas.Delete
my sister gave me a 4' fake tree in 1977; I am still using it.ReplyDelete
I'd consider a fake one, but I'd be worried Biggie might think of it as his own personal powder room.Delete
