The parking lot is the first disaster area you have to be able to navigate. If you think SoCal drivers are crazy in dry weather you should try them 5 days before Christmas in the pouring rain. There were at least two fender benders in the parking lot yesterday all within view from the front door. The exit door can be really exciting when it rains....everyone comes in to the warehouse hoping they will find that the rain has stopped when they are ready to leave....yesterday we heard countless times...."oh is it still raining?" Almost to the point that if one more person said it we were going to slap someone. Then there was the poor guy who looked like he had come straight from work in his business suit walking out to his car trying to cover his groceries over with empty boxes to keep them dry all the while trying to keep his umbrella right side out...it wasn't working too well for him.....I think I would have just given up on the umbrella once it turned inside out. Along that same line are the people that are worried that their groceries are going to get "wet" because we don't provide bags, only boxes and sometimes not even boxes. I can understand if it was a piece of furniture, or a book, or a magazine or an item of clothing but a roast chicken or a bag of lettuce? Is it really going to hurt if they get wet? I just don't get it.
Tomorrow we are headed into what the weathermen say is going to be the worst of the rain this week...and there will be just 3 shopping days left til Christmas...people watching is about to get really interesting!
|yes those baskets are tipped over....it's a fire lane and people aren't suppose to park there but they do anyway.|
