So, there's a bunch of merchandise at my store that is not priced. It's out on the shelves but I have no idea how much to sell it for. Yesterday, a customer wanted to buy some blank place cards with a gold edge. They had no price, so I looked at similar cards to help me guess. Similar cards without the gold edge were $8. This pack held half as many cards but was $4.

Well, turns out the edges were hand-painted and it was supposed to be sold for $45. Of course, nobody was there to tell me that and nobody was answering texts because it was their day off.

At first I felt bad, but you know what? If you don't price the merchandise, that's gonna happen. Maybe now stuff will be priced before being put out.

Our computer system crashed and one of our machines at the shop broke down. The replacement parts are no longer being made, soooo not sure what we're gonna do about that. (Cont..)

On the positive side, I got hooked up with a teaching job in China. We do it via videoconference, I teach for about an hour (just basic English to a small group of students) and I get paid $20 per class. It's pretty easy and it's a lot of fun. My friend does this to supplement her income and she makes a pretty fair amount of money. It should help me out so I'm excited to start! First class is this weekend.

My birthday is this Saturday. I expect someone to make me a birthday thread. If you don't, I'm making my own and it's gonna be super awesome and NONE OF YOU WILL BE INVITED.

My boss told my coworker and I that all he wants for his birthday is a "tall, hot blonde." So we bought him a Barbie doll. Can't wait to see the look on his face.

I feel better today than yesterday. Hello!

How old are you gonna be?

24!

I'm practically ancient now. I'm basically a fossil.

How much of your free time is spent sitting on your porch, drinking burned coffee, and shouting at kids passing by on the street?

Well...I don't have a porch, I hate coffee, and my street doesn't get pedestrians.

Yeah, that's your store's fault. Don't feel bad about it.

Target lets the cashier work out a price with the customer if the item is seemingly less than $20 so that you don't have to get a price check and hold up and thereby disappoint the customer. I always thought that was so smart. Wal-Mart should get hip to that as it's an act of congress to check a price there.

Ooh, that's actually a really good idea.

The thing that drives me nuts is my boss will say "oh, just pick a price for that." And I'll say, "Like $X?" and then he'll go "oh, no, that's way off-base."

THEN JUST PICK A PRICE O M G

He's an amazing boss most of the time but that little thing drives me so super nuts and I don't know what to do about it.

You should have bought all the unpriced cards for $4 and resold them on the street for $30...

I lost.
