Well, happy Christmas eve everybody. We got drizzles here in Central PA, and they're supposed to be lingering throughout the day. Fun stuff. Temps are going to hover around in the mid 40s (F). Tomorrow, however, they're supposed to climb up into the 50s (F). Keep in mind, even though 2023 has been the warmest year since humans have started keeping records, there is no such thing as global warming, at least as far as many of the truly religious are concerned. God wouldn't let that happen to us.
As expected, yesterday there were not a lot of customers in the store yesterday. For the most part, the 6 hours I spent there were truly boring. I did talk to people, but scheduling was lite; management must finally be reading the room. I did sell some flooring yesterday, and one customer signed up for a credit card. We did have 2 customers, a husband and wife, who scammed us on getting a military discount. We knew there was a problem, but they knew exactly which bells and whistles to tap and blow in order to get their 10% discount. I have no problem with people who are thrifty, and frugal, and who try to save a penny, but those that lie and cheat in order to pay the lowest price they can possibly get? They are one of the reasons retailers raise their prices. Corporate is going to do everything within their power to make Market Share, even if it means raising the prices for everybody.
And I saw this picture in the Washington Post this morning. Tell me, what stands out in this photo of Clarence Thomas and his law clerks?
