An email from Tracie:

“About once to twice a month we have meetings at my store yo go over numbers, what’s going to change, and to remind us what we signed up for when we took the job. Just the normal boring stuff they like to throw at you at 7 am. Well a few years or so ago we had a routine meeting that all of us had to go to. Thinking that it was the usual meeting where we sit and list in for about an hour; my co-workers that were either not scheduled to officially work that day and those that thought were working that eve
showed up in their comfortable clothing and house shoes. So, the moment all of us had arrived to the meeting, the managers put us to work moving our massive bookshelves across the floor with all of the books in aide them! We had to put some ssliders below the shelves for us to be able to successfully push/drag 7 four foot Shelves that were 3 to 7 shelves tall.
If there had been messages sent ahead of this remodeling, which none were sent, I am sure people would have either found something that would have prevented them from coming in, or they could have been wearing proper foot wear instead of HOUSE SLIPPERS. Needless to say there was a lot of grumbling and the co-workers that wore slippers ended up doing the shelf movement barefoot. Moving shelves at 7 am across carpet towards the front of the store with co-workers who are slipping and sliding is not a fun
morning, but is memorable.”

I can think of something slightly less fun. Code brown clean up.

Thanks for the email, Tracie!!!
