Good News! The Temps are going up! Wednesday forecasters are saying we will hit 50 (F). Of course, they will drop back down, with highs predicted to be in the mid to upper 40's (F). Still, this means winter is on the verge of turning the corner. I do like the changing of the seasons.
Yesterday was busy at work. Customers seemed to come out of the woodwork. Cue stupid customer story, or maybe I should say Phony Christian Story. So, yesterday I'm sitting at the Flooring Desk and this woman comes up and says "I'm with the Morning Sunshine Church and we're thinking about putting in around 1200 square feet of vinyl plank." Before I had a chance to say anything, she continued. "We've already gotten our Tax Exempt paperwork done and I'm interested in getting bulk pricing for 1200 feet of vinyl flooring." Very politely I told her bulk pricing is handled through our Pro Desk and there was someone working who could help her. "I'm not doing that," she exclaimed, "I'm just interested in bulk pricing." Again, I politely repeated myself, to which she said, "I'll have to go someplace where they'll work with me." And... again, I reiterated that they could help her at our Pro Desk. "I guess I'm just going to have to go to Lowe's," she threatened as she started tow walk away. So I said, "go ahead. Go to Lowe's." You see, our competitor functions the same way we do, and she'll have to go through their Pro Desk if she wants a bulk price discount. Do I need to remind you she's purportedly a Christian who attends the Cracker Jack Crazy Morning Sunshine Church?
Did I tell you I bought an Instant Pot? Sometimes for pressure cooking, but mostly for steaming. It's also going to be replacing a very old Crock Pot that's at least 30 years old. That's right, I use a crock pot that old. Here's the replacement.
