Teh Squeaky Wheel
Caturday Greetings from dreary but Happy Larryville, GN!
Criminy, what a work-week it’s been; managing customer expectations via brutal honesty is taxing. 🙂
Hope Sven’s feeling better today.
Buh…brain-dead right now; I need some super-coffee. Does super-coffee even exist? If not, it should; if so, I really want some.
I appreciate the rather cruel cleverness -- and effort -- of this “gift-wrapping” idea:
Hi, Fatwa -- good morning, GN! Happy last Saturday of this year. I’m feeling better, but sad that my days off were spent mostly in bed. Alone. Sleeping.
As the new year approaches, I’m sure California will be implementing a whole host of new absurd laws, but that’s just business as usual here and it’s hard to even get outraged over them anymore.
OK, I couldn’t resist. From some newspaper: “Gov. Gavin Newsom signed almost 1,200 new laws this year, though not all of them take effect Jan. 1. Taken as a whole, the list embodies the uniquely Californian approach to governing. Most reflect the largely liberal viewpoint of the Legislature and its Democratic majority.”
Yeah, us. Sheesh.
Exactly. “California allowed this problem to fester, and California needs to fix it. Or sink under the stench.”
Glad yer feelin’ better.
I concur with the last sentence of that Victory Girls post.
Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Sven -- I’m glad you’re feeling better. It sucks that you’re time sick coincided with your time off.
Fatwa -- brutally honest in customer service is a novel concept.
The float is proceeding apace, but things are moving slower than I’d like. I haven’t checked the schedule -- that’s just my opinion. We normally work with Girl Scouts and their leaders, and they do a great job. This year, we have a few Girl Scouts and a bunch of Key Club students. I watched yesterday as the float supervisor went over to a group of about a dozen of them who were just sitting around, chatting and said he needed two people for a job. Nobody budged, volunteered, or said a word. I’m used to the Girl Scouts coming up to me and saying “there are eight of us -- where do you need us?”
We finally got a group of four of the boys to do a decent job on one part of the float, after much nagging and correcting by several people, including Teh Younger and myself.
Perhaps someone should let Key Club know about their crappy volunteers.
WTF did those kids expect…participation trophies just for showing-up?
They probably only get virtual participation trophies now to view on their phones.
A bit late joining in on Caturday. Missed all teh fun. Hope everyone had a happy holiday even though it seems like everyone has a cold/flu.
Get better, Wheelies.
