I am really tired. My whole entire body hurts. My legs are so sore. This store remodel is kicking my ass! My September vacation can't come soon enough. New York City is going to be so much fun. I can't wait.

Well, I am too tired to say much else. I will be back when I am not so tired.

I lost 2 employees this week due to they can make more money at other places. One is my assistant produce manager. he is starting at a competitor for 2 bucks an hour more as just a clerk. and he was topped out on the pay scale. You wouldn't want to come out here to be in management. I make more as a department head on hourly wage than a co manager in a store with less than 10 years with the company does. It's sad.

I had an 18 year old kid that I stole off the front end. Best worker I had. They would not bring him up over 6 bucks an hour to work in produce. He went to target and started at 8.75 an hour. So much for union superiority in pay scales. It seems that the only help we can get are the ones that the other stores run off. We get the crap. Most don't care about the benefits and with only hiring part time, most don't get benefits.

Sometimes I think our little company is driving it'self right down the old proverbial commode.

I am exploring other things as I don't see much of a future in staying with our little company. It used to have a reputation of being at the top but that has slipped quite a bit.

Good to hear from you.

Later Y'all
