Monday afternoon flakes flew in significant numbers for more than an hour straight. In Tennessee this sends cubers in droves to their email boxes to inundate managers with authorization requests to go home. But we all know they’ll head first for the Wal Mart for toilet paper, cigarettes, and milk. The lactose intolerant and/or non-smokers will head straight for the paper products. Let the hair pulling begin!
I was ready for the cube crowds to storm the exits and push the doors off the hinges in the new Black Friday tradition but it didn’t happen — this time. Wait until Thursday. The forecast is ugly to uglier starting at 1:00am. I’ll bet instead that shooting a cannon through the place at 8:30am won’t hit very many people. We’ll see. If the same lady who last year said she saw white on the road ahead and slammed on the brake with both feet is on the road again this week, she may take a few coworkers with her down the embankment. I may have to ask her her route and send out a mass email warning others not to leave their houses until an hour after her start time.
I always laughed at the jokes about the grocery runs until once I was coincidentally picking up a few things and saw that the milk section had one lonesome carton left and that one didn’t last more than a minute after I saw it. Unbelievable.
I’ll have you know that this week I’m prepared. There are two, count them, two packages of toilet paper in the house. I am lactose intolerant and stared only briefly at the cigarettes.
Bring it on.
