Okay, so it's Sunday. Temps are going to soar into the mid 60s (F). There is absolutely no precipitation in the forecast for the next a2 weeks. That can change. We all know how wishy-washy the weather can be.
Yesterday was extremely slow at the store. Not that there weren't the occasional customer, they just weren't interested. I had to talk to a manager from another store because the major software update the orange retailer rolled has lots of bugs that are need of being fixed. There is also the problem that this new software system was thrust upon thousands of specialists who received no training.
And, of course, this week is Black Friday. Our aisles are jammed packed with clutter, a mish-mash of name brand (Milwaukee, Ryobi, DeWalt) tools that are usually not available for sale because they are made for one day only... Black Friday. This doesn't mean that because they're cheap they're not going to last, but that possibility does exist.
The one bright spot yesterday was I gave away my old TV! One of our student associates is home for the holiday and when I mentioned that I was getting rid of my Sony Bravada, his eyes lit up. Because I had planned on dropping it off at the recycling center on Wednesday and didn't, it was in the back of my car. He's happy, and it saved me the $40 I was going to have to pay at the recycling center, getting rid of flat screen TVs is not that easy.
Back when I was in the Navy, during down times when we weren't launching jets, the flight deck was most ours to do with what we wanted. Some men worked on their tans. Not me. There was no way you'd have gotten me out into one of the wire safety nets.
