S is for Service

Calgary happens to be undergoing a boom at the moment. There aren't a lot of places to live, and just about anyone can find a job in a matter of moments - Heck - even the fast food places here are paying twice what minimum wage is just to get someone to work there.

But... I just don't get where some people think things are a good idea. I was at the "big box" store last night, and a couple of the employees were playing with a bouncy ball - in the isles. I know they're only teenagers, and they likely don't care much about keeping their jobs. But still - you'd think that the management would realize that having their staff, in uniform, playing doesn't really give you a great image for the store.

I've been trying to take pictures of a couple of things for a while - the set of purple beads I mentioned ages ago, along with a couple of new sets. But the light just isn't co-operating. If you've noticed the cute little weather pixie over on the side, it's been raining here for what feels like forever.

It's rainy here, too, Karin and it looks like it'll be that way for the next few days.

We're going through a boom here, too! I don't think I've ever seen as many "now hiring" signs as I have in the past month. Anything from Tim Horton's paying you for 5 hours if you work 4 to welders to salesmen...everyone needs people!

Rainy weather is a great excuse to stay home and work on crafts, though :)
