@Chumly,
Chumly, That's what I also read some months ago about Costco; their pay and benefits are probably one of the best in the retail business.

@fishin,
You need the right mind frame to just work for the paycheck....
Amusement more than annoyance.
But it's a hard 'tude to keep up. It's kinda like not caring, but really, it's more about remembering what's important to care about... you know?
These messed up people at a messed up place aren't worth caring that much about, in the long run.

18 pounds. Hey, we still need a picture.

My son Nigel worked for Target one summer. His experience was almost as
fulfilling as yours.

If you own a gun, please give it to someone else to keep for you until you find
another job.

2.5 lbs (without the bow)

Why are we guessing the weight of fishin's dog.

Did I miss something again??

I think it's little - say 7kg - that probably about 17 lbs. Smaller than my cat

@George,
Is his dog his boss? Is his boss a dog?

Inquiring minds want to know.

@margo,
7 kg is about 15 lb 6 oz (or so). Do you need to revise your guess?

@fishin,
Have you seen the movie "Employee of the Month" with Dane Cook, it's about a guy that works in a big box store...it's a light comedy, pretty good I suppose.....you might appreciate it with you newfound workplace observances.

About 5 months ago I swore that if I got anymore jobs like I had at the time, I was going to go to WallyWorld or Lowe's and get a box-boy job. It was a running joke with me for a few weeks {I'll spare you the jokes} until my wife finally said enough of the box-boy-bullshit. She never appreciated the fact that my life would become far simpler, in that the worst that could happen would be for my box opener to become dull...and even after showing her how easy it was to solve that dilemma...switching the blade around...she still just shook her head at my proposed new career.

Nah - I'll go with whatever 7kg is = as I'm not sure what I'm guessing anyway. Is there a sheep station resting on the result? - that's what Aussies gamble for!

Can someone tell me what a box store is?

@margo,
Architecturally reminiscent of aircraft hangars, so called "box stores" (such as WalMart, Target, Home Depot, or Costco) sell lots of cheaply manufactured goods through employees usually working at or a little above the poverty line. Generally, within a chain, one store will have pretty much the same design, goods, and prices as another, as well as the same corporate-dictated management structure.






I'm not a-answering deb until she stops yelling. Anyway, it's fishin's bad job thread.

Fishin' I don't envy you at all. I had a department store job in the early sixties, but it was very nice. Employers were polite and discounts were generous. It sucks how things have changed. Of course, there weren't any big box stores way back then.

Good luck with your own business--just think, a business run by an intelligent and knowledgable person with a personality that isn't permanently scrubbed clean by alien idiot children. What a concept!

@fishin,
Oh, and fishin'? Would you have Mass Cass contact me? I know the way to find out the weight of your dog without having to do all that heavy guessing.

@patiodog,
So Patio Dog. Why don't you start another thread about your good job?

Fishin' has us all so depressed that we run the risk of actually going to one of those stores to check it our for ourselves. What if one of us got talked into working there? Who would notice until too many a2kers started disappearing into big box hell?
