And then I went to my local Giant grocery shopping. And after that I drove across Shady Hill Road to interview at my soon to be local Weis Market. I had applied to be a fish monger but they have other ideas. The HR Specialist did a little oohing and ahhing when I told him I managed 29 cashiers in the winter but that the number increased to 44 during the spring and summer
While I was bragging about myself, my phone started vibrating with an incoming call. It was my Store Manager calling to tell me how much money I'd lose when I step down from my management position. Better than I thought. I'll get a fixed shift, either 9 - 6 or 10 - 7, both would work well for me. So, sitting in the parking lot of my soon to be local Weis Market, I said yes. This means I probably won't take the job at Weis if they make an offer. And financially my "take home" pay is not going to change. Right now I have a high percentage going to my 401K, so all I needed to do was drop that deduction by 12%. And what am I going to be? A Specialist.
That's right. I'm going to specialize in flooring... and blinds... and tile. This means I'm also going to have to learn to drive a forklift.... be afraid.... be very, very much afraid.
Anyway, I had a long conversation with my friend Betsy last evening about the approaching Trumpageddon. She doesn't understand that starting next Friday things are going to being unraveling for the GOP, or that DT is surrounding himself with people will very shortly be at each other's throats. You know? Like Kushner and Bannon, the almost orthodox Jew and the Anti-Semite. Lot's of harmony there.
Well, I'm off to work. Need to study up on my hard woods.
