Happy Birthday Dana!! Hope it was a good one. Here is her blog: http://avereenie.blogspot.com
Today was an early day at work and I came home with my right shoulder is killing me. It's from the repetitive motion of lifting stuff over the belt and into the bags. I try not to think about it but it hurts most of the time. I'm trying to get into another department at work instead of being on the register. I hope they let me switch.
A customer at work was driving me nuts. What she wanted to do was price match oranges. For those of you who don't know what that is, she wanted to match the price to another store and she had to have the store ad with her. Another store had them for 10/$1. At Walmart they are .64 each which is pretty much the going rate around here. Since she wanted to do 40 of them I called for a CSM to make sure it was ok. They said it was. Ok so then she tells me she's going to go back and get 40 more. I call a CSM once again and they said I could do it. So I figure that was over with. But no...she comes back maybe 4 hours later (to my register again) with 3 more bags......60 more. I called a CSM who checked with management cause sometime things have a limit and they said to do it. The woman tells me she had to come back because there were still more left.! Did she ever think that it might be a good idea to leave some for other people? Did she really need to buy 140 oranges? I think it's good that she saved some money but boy what a pig! She'll probably resell them or something. Ok....my work vent of the day is now over.
I checked the new schedule they put up at work and I'm off on Thanksgiving. But....and this is a big but....I have to work on Black Friday. 6 am to 2 pm. Doesn't that sound like fun! I'm so excited I can barely stand it. ;)
I made some oatmeal butterscotch cookies yesterday when I was off work. It was cool out so it was a good day for baking. I don't know why the picture is small. The recipe for oatmeal cookies is on my family recipe page under Barb's Links on the right. They always come out really good and are especially good warm out of the oven.
