The weather yesterday started off... well... okay, but then the sun came out. However, for those who didn't know, it was Friday... the 13th. The nuts were out shopping. Well, let me correct myself, the nuts were out. They were calling the Flooring Desk. One of them had set up a measure over the phone. This person has never been in the store. Never looked at flooring. This person wants hardwood. He only wants it on his staircases (slip, trip, and fall hazard). He wants Brazilian Cherry. Sorry, it's unavailable, probably because there's a dictator in Brazil who's burning down the rain forests. The only thing that resembles Brazilian Cherry is a Pergo laminate... in no way being close to hardwood. And I, had the joy of explaining this to him... over the phone because he has never been in the store. Oh, and his staircases are going to cost him over $4000. Boo!
Management gave me a cute little red bag with a blue ribbon on it - my Veterans Goody Bag. Lots of little snacky things and a card signed 'Mgmt.' The gesture was nice, but I had to chuckle at the 'Mgmt.'
Also, beginning Monday, we need to do our Health Check on either a computer or smart phone before we get to the store, otherwise the timeclock will not let us punch in. I'm certain there are a number of associates who feel this is an attack on their constitutional rights to do what ever they want. Many still do not believe the seriousness of the situation simply because of our Failed President.
I find it interesting that Biden's total Electoral College votes are a mirror image of what the Idiot Jerk received 4 years ago. This is a sign, you know. We are escaping from the ugly, fascist wonderland of the Idiot Jerk, back through the mirror before it breaks.
Evidently the White Supremacists are going to protest the Idiot Jerk's loss today. I'm betting they bring their guns. In case you didn't know it, they are the cheese to his whine. What whine you ask? This whine.
