Who? Remembers Sears?

I mean! the original sears?

When I was a kid. I remember going to Sears in Cleveland, Ohio USA. Both Eastside & Westside locations in the inner city. YES! In the inner city! Before they moved to the suburbs.

It was a time when? Most of the products/items were (as I understand it to be!) overruns of National manufacturers and Sears bought them and put their name (on some of them) on it.

Sears was back then. What Walmart is today. A one stop, one shop store. Some exceptions. No drug/pharmacy department, no gas station/auto repair shop (as I recall).

Then somewhere between the 70’s & the 80’s! Sears went by way of: “if you can’t beat ’em!”  “join ’em!”.  In other words! Sears “sold out!”.

And now we are seeing an agonizing demise of an American institution. Changes in consumer tastes, convenience, styles, so on.

Not to mention! “GREED!”

K-mart is no better!

TV reporter fired after obscene tirade against police officer in viral video | Fox News

PHL 17 reporter Colleen Campbell was fired after a she was arrested outside of Helium Comedy Club Sunday night for assaulting a police officer.

Here! We have another local air personality. Who does not understand! Not only do you have to “Be GOOD!” on/off the job. Or! You will see yourself either being a news item. Or! Going viral on the Internet.

Plus! What and how you behave yourself in public.

Locally! we had two women who wrote something at some social networking/media website. They both got fired for it.

In this case! It does cross the ever so fine line of “Free Speech” and flexibility by State law. The state employment law gives employers.

It’s been said: “Once you become famous (both local and otherwise!)” “Your private life no longer becomes your own!”

This! Also applies to Government officials too!

The longer we are on this planet!

The more restrictive! Things become!

WHO HAS NOT “BITCHED” ABOUT THEIR JOB?

 

There is not anyone among us! Who has not liked/loved anything about their workplace? If it is not the company, management, bosses! It’s the people the company hires!

Nutjobs! If ever! All of us carry some type/kind of mentality attitude about how “we” think work should be.

I have met employees! Who have tried to take control of a department! And “slowly!” try to call the shots by going over their bosses head to the President of the company. So that they think! They have s/he in their back pocket.

Only to find out! It “backfired” on them. By ending getting fired!!!!

You do have to give these “Nutjobs” credit! Only for the wasted effort, they made by staging a “Failed coup”

What happens to them after? They go from job to job! It would not surprise me if at their next job? They try Again. people who are supposed to be “in-charge Have this thing! About certain people. The so-called weak, kind of people the bosses go to a point where they abuse them. The bosses! Do find they ones to “Dump” on!

If you are a blue collar worker? Your boss does not care about how tired you are. Because there is a job to be done. When you are tired! So are your coworkers as well. Tempers flare! But! Your boss does not care. Since the job gets done! S/he sheepishly smiles about it!

It is because! Of the state’s employment law! That gives employers. Open hand on doing whatever the employer wants to do.

AFL-CIO can rant & rave about employers, workplace, laws, equal rights about the workplace all they want! What? Are they really doing about it?

Even the unions! Are more concerned about? Padding their own pockets before their members! They are still! Stuck in the 70’s! And how things were way back when?

Unions! Do not have what they used to have back then today!

They want you to think they do! But! In reality? They do! not

So! Where is the employee today? All buy them!

Consider yourself very lucky! If you find a company that has a good wages, benefits.

Unions today! Are still struggling in regaining what they had back then!

The workplace will not get better!

Because of the laws, employer, employees, unions, and the Powers that be!

REMEMBER WHEN GOING TO THE STORE WAS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE?

 

With all these retailers! Closing up shop!

I can remember when my mom wanted me to go to the store which was down the street from us where my parent and I lived. so was the drug store, hardware store, so on.

If we wanted a big ticket item? We had my sisters drive my mom and me to the catalog showroom stores. Or take a bus and go downtown and those big department stores.

Now with some stores that were time tested. Are not slowly. going away. But! Not with the board of directors! Getting their share of “Take the money and run!” job!

For those of you who may not know? What is a “Catalog showroom” store? Depending on the store! You would come in, either the store had items on display. Or You would walk up to a table, go through the catalog they had. Write down your order, present the order to the clerk. She would go in the back, fill your order, bring it to the front, pay for your order, and leave.

We had “our”” discount stores”. And “every day” discount stores. Not much difference in the two. But! HEY! saving money! Is saving money!

The 5 cent & $10..00 stores! There’s a list of them! Some in different parts of the USA! Some National.

Some of them were as well! Within walking distance. But those were small 5 & the 10’s!

It just seems like! Everything! Keeps changing! But not for the better!

WHAT IS THE WORST PART ABOUT WORK?

 

When we get our first job!

We all have this mental thought in our minds that! The workplace is this/that. But when that time does come! It’s much worse than a strong cup of coffee!

My first job was at a printing plant. The department “head” was very strict when it came to working. He always said: “less bullshit more work!” As if? He was always on my ass just short of 24/7.

A sold out! Company man! Until the co. Folded!

The employeesVery “narcissistic!”! nice at first! After you are back was turned? Dbl. Daggers at your back.

I am sure in each, and every workplace! There are people who have this thing! About wanting to take control of a department/Company. They just want to prove somehow either to them themselves or others. They have what it takes to be in mgt. Not knowing! Which end is up!

Even at work! As in school! Bullies abound!

I think the I hated work was? The people, the workplace, Company so-called standards & practices. Mostly! The ones who in charge of a department/Company itself. You know them! Any amount of power! They become drunk with power!

I know a “FUCK-UP”! Who still to this day! Is holding a stupid grudge against me for not having a bumper sticker for him! When it was “HIS”! turn!

I also found that bullies! Are “narcissist”!

They also exist all around us!

Even management!

Is life? Not fun??????

IF PRESIDENT TRUMP ASKED YOU TO BE IN HIS ADMINISTRATION? WOULD YOU ACCEPT/DECLINE?

 

I For one! Would not!

Because he disgraces the office and the presidency. By not knowing which end is up?  Is rewarding his heavy contributors, with positions in his administration. All! Have if nothing else? No experience in Government at all!

For someone who has “0” Government, experience. And more than likely. Associate’s, real estate and running, a Government as one of the same.

Ever since Trump got elected. It seems the media has been on his ass in more ways than one! Rightfully, so!

At Present! Four bankruptcies, seven attempts at promoting the “Trump” name. All seven failed.

There is a law what age a person can run for President. There should be too! A law where one cannot run as well. Who do we have to blame for this?  Pres. Trump. When you do one thing! And one thing only for such a very long time! Then go into something else? Well as you can see!

Should there be a prerequisite, for running, for President as well?

I HATE WORK! EXCEPT ONE! SORT OF!

Ever since I was 17! Work either hated me! Or! I hated it!

I think it was what I had in mind of how work is Vs. the way it is. The people in charge! were no help as well. Always! getting on your ass just short of 24/7. It always has! & always will be! The younger generation! having to deal with? The older generation.

All because of the state employment laws! Companies can do what they want with us!  Bosses! always looking out for that “one” person to fire! management is clearly! Scared of employees! They don’t want anyone! Being better than themselves! To them? It’s like a “childhood dream come true”.

There was one place that I loved working as a security guard. That lasted about? five years. If it was not for mgt. being a full narcissist! It would have been longer.

Being a security guard. Is nothing more than a “warm body”.

Nowadays! I’m retired and in the process of ending it with the “estranged” wife! And “YES!” she is strange in more way than one!

From time to time I have been thinking about. Starting a sm. biz! But! Why should I?
