I found out yesterday that the Specialist who's transferring to North Carolina will be moving down on August 22. Wow. I might have the joy of working with him for 8 of those 15 remaining days... doubt it. He's going to be taking some time off between now and then... The great orange home improvement retailer I work for gave those of us over 65 six weeks of personal time, just in case we came down with Covid. I'm betting he takes some of that. He doesn't like coming to the store. He doesn't get the respect he thinks he deserves. The sad truth is people are counting down the days. He also has a bad case of short-timer's attitude. That's not a good thing to have when you're unpopular.
Otherwise, things are slowing down in the store. That's normal for this time of year.
A Reuters poll shows two thirds of Americans oppose delaying the election in November, and well over half of them believe the Idiot Jerk made the suggestion, hoping to provide himself with some political protection. Interestingly enough, only 23% of those responding said the elections should be delayed and they were...(are you ready for this?) Republicans. For those who don't know, that is the core of his base. Ouch.
The Body in the Loch is proceeding nicely. Whereas in The Body in the Well the entire team arrived at Rattler's Den as a group, here Jules and Bobby get to the 'scene of the crime' at different times. For a while I had thought of excluding them in this mystery, but then I realized I really needed Bobby to shout out "Let loose the hounds!"... oh, gee... I think that might be a spoiler. Sorry.
And of course I have started picking out lines from songs. They are always important. They always reveal something that is happening, or about to happen. Here's an example: Towards the end of The Body on the Lawn there's an important lyric. At that point, Eli turns into a knight in shining armor and goes to slay a dragon. A lyric or two from this song are going to be in The Body in the Loch.
Okay, so how do you think this is going to play into the story line? I can be so evil at times 😈😈😈
Evil at times? Dave, devilishness is your trademark. I really like you include lyrics in your narratives. Songs always speak to me.ReplyDelete
And today? It's work as usual. And I have some deadlines to meet so I'll probably be stressed today and tomorrow, thanks for asking.
Cheeto is prepping the road for fuckery, I'm telling you. The question is, will the American people let him get away with murder?
My trademark? Why thank you, I was afraid people didn't notice.Delete

____ is desperately trying to save himself from being a one-term loser.ReplyDelete
Actually, I think he knows he needs to be re-elected to stay out of jail.Delete
I like to set the mood of my posts with a song. I get what you mean. My son Max just started at the white and blue competitor :).ReplyDelete
Competition is good. Music is great!!Delete
Uuughh I hate lazy colleagues. You can always predict the ones that will go sick when you're the most busy (big meetings for us), but who you KNOW will let you down and do a crap job if they are there. We had one woman working for us who fit all these descriptions. Eventually our organization offered her 6 months' pay to leave/retire, and as I was preparing her retirement paperwork she said "oh, if you're ever looking for temps I'm available"! I thought my boss's eyeballs were going to pop out of his head!ReplyDelete
I found out today this is our Specialist's last week... not much notice.Delete
I was in my Home Depot on Monday to finalize my selection and purchase of a stove, stove hood and frig, and the store was packed with people. The man waiting on me said the same thing you did, so he couldn't believe how busy they still are. It's been nuts he said.ReplyDelete
My items will be here on the 24th of August!!!!
Many of our appliances are sold out and there's a fairly long wait.Delete
Love Imagine Dragons! And there can be no election delay, November 3 is coming!!ReplyDelete
Their last album was okay. Most of the lyrics I pull for my writing come from either Alternative or Rock.Delete
