So, California is getting rain. A Navy buddy of mine posted pictures on Facebook this AM and I was polite. I didn't tell him that is what most rain storms look like here in Central PA because they don't have the amount of rain that we do. Two years ago there was a heavy drought in the southwest, today they're getting too much. This means I need to make a really bad joke: Isn't this how it usually is? When it rains, it pours?
Anyway, yesterday was oh, so boing at work. I did have customers show up who I'd sold blinds to last week. They got a phone call, the product they wanted was out of stock and there would be a 3 week delay until production could begin on their blinds. That does happen on occasion. What does irk me, however, is this belief by some customers that they can show up on Sunday and resolve the issue. While our store may be open, Bali blinds, Levelor blinds, and Venetia blinds are closed on the weekends. True, we can reach their customer service reps, but all they can do is look at notes on a customer's order, which is what I can do. The customers are coming back later this morning when we will be able to get some answers for them.
It seems as though I have Kamikaze snails. Here's one racing towards the edge of the clam shell.
