I’m a vendor. I don’t work for the store. There’s nothing on my person that would make you think I work for this company.
When you approach someone in a store and say, “Do you work here?” and then they say, “No.” THAT’S the end of the conversation.
I don’t mind helping you if I’m able, but when my hands are full (literally) and I’m trying to balance on one foot, and my tongue is hanging out, and you can see me doing something, IT’S NOT THE TIME.
Definition of no:
not so —used to express negation, dissent, denial, or refusal
It is the ultimate disambiguation, the word no. It removes all doubt. I used to have a shirt of ultimate disambiguation.
Please just let me do my job, and someone else’s my company has decided I do at that moment.
Second thing. Thank God for an incorrect weather forecast. A huge thunderstorm was brewing to the NW of us, and as I’ve said before, big storms scare me. It seems to have broken up and continued on its stormy way.
Third and last thing, today was a good day. We hit hard and fast on the resets today, and like I pray in the mornings, “Lord make us swift and accurate.” It helps that we’ve been doing this job together for the past six years so that my part-timer knows what I think as we move through these mods. She’s a good partner.
Today was a great start to the week. It makes me feel more confident going forward with the other stores we have to set.
I’m going to have a cup of coffee and watch some TV. Then it’s time for bed. I got to hit it dark and early in the morning.
That’s it. That’s the post.
