Tuesday, my day off, and I'm going to enjoy it.
I'm scheduled to work over 25 hours this week. (Bit of a heavy sigh). I do enjoy the days that I don't go into work. However, I also don't mind going in and sitting at the flooring desk for a couple of hours a week. Full time is considered 30 hours a week or more and 25 + is too close to that, if you know what I mean.
I've talked before about how the big orange retailer I work for gives bonuses out to employees through what they call Success Sharing. Those checks are dependent upon how closely each store's sales come to either hitting their forecast, or at least coming close. As far as I know, they're still doing Success Sharing this year, though checks are going to be minimal. This is because corporate built a forecast last year based on three years of pandemic sales. Ouch. Prior to Covid, we never hit $1 million a week in sales. During Covid that changed. Sales went though the roof. Over the past year they have dropped off drastically, to pre-Covid figures. In order to compensate the stockholder's greed, they raised prices. That didn't help. Only 3 stores out of 27 came close to hitting their forecast. For 2023 the forecast has been lowered to a more realistic figure, however that is not going to fix the sales for 2022, which means our Success Sharing checks are going to be as dismal as the sales they were based upon.
My angelfish laid eggs again. This is the third time and they did what they did the previous two times. Ate them. They are not known to be good parents. Here's a blurry picture I took of them last evening, before the feasting started.
