Today was tiring. After sitting through a speech about changing the look of the store to change the look of the company (ie. spackle & spray paint to "freshen things up") I was told that Administration just paid twenty thousand dollars for the new computers. They suggested doing small projects with a budget of $50-100. They want us to spray paint our jewelry display trays to "freshen them up and make them look new." I couldn't bite my tongue and had to say something - "You can get a comparable eMachine at Costco for $700!" The VP of Production said that if we spent $1000 on each computer "that would be $1000 less we could spend on gold stock."
What the fudge? Oh yeah, Twenty thousand dollars.
Did I mention how my last "raise" two years ago was for 15¢? Yeah, and that's because the store manager "pleaded my case."
Conclusion: Men are stupid shoppers. *cough* Men.
