Welcome to Sunday. The weather is supposed to be nice, so we'll be expecting crowds at the store. Yesterday our parking lot was jam-packed. And, I had one of the dumbest customers I've ever had in my life. Everyone I tell starts to laugh. Me? I'm still laughing. I get a page to help a customer in blinds, a middle-aged woman and her husband are standing in front of the cellular display. She tells me they want to buy one that's a Parchment color, a big one. She pointed to one that was 6 feet long and proceeded say she wanted it cut in half so they can have 2 blinds. I told her we didn't do that. She started growing irritated and pointed to the blind cutter, "what's that for?" I explained how the cutter was used to take a little bit of the ends of blinds so they could fit in different sized windows. I also told her we didn't sell extra mounting hardware. Her response: "I never heard of anything so damn stupid." I also told her the blinds wouldn't work because cutting it in half would destroy the pulley mechanism running across the top of the head rail. She flipped. "Pulley mechanism! Why the hell is there a pulley mechanism if these are cordless blinds!" Surprisingly, she wasn't wearing a MAGA hat. Now tell me, have you ever considered cutting a blind in half to get two?
Of course, a lot of people are talking about Obama's commencement address. He is infuriating both the Idiot Jerk in the White House and his minions because Obama, unlike the Idiot Jerk, sounds intelligent when he speaks. He doesn't say things like "super duper missile," and "it's a really, really big white boat... a really big white boat." But then, of course, Obama understands that most Americans, except for MAGA heads, do not need things repeated for them to know what he's talking about.
Finally, my roses have started blooming and my peonies are preparing to pop. Here's a pic of Biggie the other day. You can see just a bit of the purply thing next to my yellow rose bush.
Biggie is simply adorable! 💚💛💙🧡🤍💜🤎ReplyDelete
He's like a short haired Saint Bernard.Delete
Obama gives me real president thrills.ReplyDelete
He is the epitome of class.Delete
I finished book #2 yesterday; my, everything came together fast and furious at the end, like the bicycle racers. and bobby surprised me with his strength.ReplyDelete
I can imagine biggie making friends with jules's daughter.
I am going to finish another book before I start reading book #3.
I thought you knew, Bobby is a mountain of a man... with tat. Oh, and his tossing talent is mentioned in #3.Delete
Couldn't she just order two smaller blinds? How much do you want to bet that she will buy a blind and then cut it in half... and then want to return it. That's why I can't work in retail, I kept getting in trouble for using my electric cattle prod on people.ReplyDelete
they took my prod away.Delete
I like voices and I've always liked Obama's voice, but add to that an INTELLIGENT voice, well I come over all weak at the knees. When Trump comes on TV I just hit mute!ReplyDelete
I avoid listening to him at all costs, he has the vocabulary of a 9 year old.Delete
Ohh you got a Karen. It’s a miracle she didn’t ask to talk to a manager. The stupidity is sometimes so flagrant...ReplyDelete
And I loved Obama’s speech. Loved it. It was also a very diverse commencement so... points!
Biggie looks super cute here.
I don't think she was smart enough to ask to see a manager.Delete
What was the husband saying? He just letting her rattle on about it?ReplyDelete
He was just as dumb, telling her they should have just ordered the bigger blind over the internet.Delete
So glad I found your Blog since your Political Humor has me Rolling during Pandemic Insomnia! I've been trawling for new Blog Fodder to entertain me during Lock Down... THANK YOU! Yes, the vocabulary of this 'Stable Genius' has me wondering what the fuck he did in the privileged Schools, the best Money could buy, I'm sure that his Rich Daddy sent him to, only to still come out stupid as fuck?! I heard he had Daddy Issues, no wonder, the raising of a Fool and bailing him out must have been exhaustive!ReplyDelete
