Gas prices futures are up 8 cents today. Better hold off on hiring part timers, round two is on the way. Senator Obama was all about calling for oil companies heads, president obama is silent.

Lowes and Home Depot have shelves full of crappy chinese sweat shop goods. Their efforts to make 2 or 3 cents more per item have put their customer base out of work. This is a failing business model.

All the contractors buying during the week aren't working anymore.Looks like they are now solely living off the Do-it-yourself crowd coming in on the weekend.I started going to local hardware stores for my needs when they installed those self-checkouts.

Nah...... surely this is a joke. Every manager at Lowes knows that the answer to better sales and higher profits is to move stuff around the store more often. This year you need to put the Christmas stuff out on the floor by June - fix the fact that the black refrigerators are sitting on the floor where the white ones should be and the higher priced products should be on the opposite end of the shelves instead of the other way around each and every month. No-one is saying hello to the customers correctly so write up a script and mandate that everyone says exactly to the same thing to every customer. Be sure to threaten everyone's jobs if they don't comply. Ramp up the rhetoric and the sarcasm... blame the poor economy on the poor efforts of your ignorant lowly employees and write them up more often for poor performance and poor attitudes toward your high minded asses.
