Friday is finally here
It's about time Friday finally got here, and thankfully on my weekend off. I did have Wednesday off but that seemed more like a tease than an actual day off. You know, you stay up late on Tuesday and then you sleep in a little on Wednesday then Wednesday night comes and it's like shit, I gotta get up tomorrow for work. Well, I do have to get up for work tomorrow, and it's an early office day, but the good side is that I get out of there somewhere around 1:30. I still haven't figured out what I'm doing Saturday yet but hopefully it will be more than sitting in the house doing nothing. Maybe I can swing a golf club one more time this year.
More stupidity from my corporate office. Now we are supposed to look at our entire store every day and if we have any out of stocks we are supposed to go to another store and buy the product and put it on our shelves. What? So if I happen to run out of the 24 count Tylenol, even though I have 20 other varieties, I'm supposed to jog my ass to a competitor and BUY stuff from their store and then put it on my shelf to sell? It's not like we have another corporate store a half mile away from us or anything so let me restate this so hopefully you can be as dumbfounded as I am. I am supposed to go to MY COMPETITOR and BUY - AT FULL RETAIL - the product I'm out of stock on and then bring it back to my store and put it on the shelves to sell... and did I mention probably lose money on? So my store that is in competition with all of these other stores will now go buy product at these stores and therefore help their bottom line out and totally fuck our bottom line. It makes you wonder why this company is failing doesn't it? What's next, they going to put a shitload of dollar days in the stores? Oh wait, nevermind.
