Well, yesterday it rained and it was torturously slow. Rain has that effect. Not that it was continuous, but the day seemed to have been pulled from the March calendar rather than the May calendar. There was a constant breeze, and the temps hung around in the low 50s (F). Today and tomorrow are going to be repeats.
I did manage to get a measure for blinds. That should keep management happy for a bit, though not for long. Thanks to the stormy weather over the weekend, only 1 store made plan in the district. They don't like.
So, I started playing Redfall last evening. It's a new Bethesda game, with a free download on the xbox Series X because Bethesda is now owned by Microsoft. I spent a very fast 2 hours killing in the town of Redfall, which has been taken over by vampires. So far it's fun, of course there have been other games that started off great and ended up not holding my interest long enough to finish them.
I was thinking about the Swedish Fish Incident this morning, debating whether or not I should tell a friend. What is the Swedish Fish Incident? Eighteen years ago, when I was working for International Paper, there was a woman who I occasionally chatted with on my rounds through Payables who kept a bowl of candy on her desk. One day, she switched from jelly beans to Swedish Fish. I like Swedish Fish, so, like everybody else, I ate a few during my morning chat. A few days later, during our chat, I had a few more. Like several other people in the department, I thought it would be a nice gesture to give her $5 to help compensate her since I was eating the candy. This went on for 2 months until a manager knocked on my door, asking to speak to me. He set $5 on my desk and told me this woman did not want me eating any of her candy. Rather than do it herself, she had a manager tell me. He told me that she just didn't like me. She had no problem talking business, but did not want me talking to her otherwise. That's one of those memories that sticks with you. This white, supposedly Christian conservative woman didn't have the guts to hurt my feelings to my face. She went so far as to tell people she was quite happy with herself for handling the situation in this manner. Just think about it.
And Trump is in Scotland. There's a lot of chatter about his decision to leave the country so close the end of his rape trial, with many people noting Scotland is just a hop, skip, or a jump away from a country which doesn't extradite criminals to the United States. Would the Orange Anus do something so unscrupulous? Do I need to ask?
Does anyone know if Ronnie D is back in the US? I know he was racking up bad reviews in Europe for a while. This man wants the world to see him as presidential and really all he's doing is proving just how much of a wallflower he happens to be. He excites no one. I don't know if he actually met any world leaders. For all I know, the only people he met who were in power were underlings just like him.
