At the store, they waited in line outside... 6 feet (approx 2 meters) apart, in the wind and snow. Sorry folks, that is not my idea of fun... or of getting out. Nope. The day before I did curbside delivery for a bit, yesterday I went out and got shopping carts. People love to push around shopping carts. Some actually put things into them, most don't. You'll see a paint brush, or an electric switch, or light bulbs. A lot of people seem to enjoy walking up and down our aisles pushing a cart with nothing more than a light bulb, or an extension cord. You know what I'm talking about? The real heavy items that weigh you down and make walking difficult.
Today I'm supposed to be a Cashier... There's no one scheduled in Flooring until after I leave. Great scheduling.
Here in America it's Mother's Day, one of those faux holidays created by Hallmark to sell greeting cards. Now, I'm not saying having one day out of the year to make Moms special is bad, I just wish everybody and their brother wasn't trying to sell you something Mom is never going to use. You see, it's not really about Mom at all. This faux holiday is based on one thing and one thing alone, getting you to buy stuff, preferably on credit so you can pay interest. Wouldn't it be nice if just for once someone would say "make you Mom feel special today... do the laundry?"
