People are wondering how this no Saturday at the hardware store is working out? Well, it worked beautifully for two weeks. Then, just when I was getting used to it, the kid who absolutely couldn't live with his hours being cut and wanted mine, asked for the next two Saturday's off. So, I have to work for him. I suspect that this is going to be the pattern for the near term. I get some Saturdays off, but not all of them. I guess some time off is better than none. When I arrived at work today, I noticed a tricked out Cadillac Escalade idling in front of the store, with a young woman in the passenger seat. And by tricked out, I mean garish, gaudy, tasteless, ridiculous-looking, take your pick. But then again, I'm a sixty-year-old geezer, what do I know from hip? I made it to the back of the store just in time to see the car's owner leaving the key counter. He fit the car to a tee. Sweat suit over a wife-beater and about ten pounds of gold jewerly. Right out of central casting. One of my coworkers was gaga over the guy's watch, which reportedly cost $20K. He also managed to drop in conversation that his Escalade cost him $90K, including a $30K sound system. I would love to know that guy's whole story. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

Oh ... c'mon Merle. You know this guy's story already, yes?

Tricked out is tricked out. I'm against it.
