Default Have you got a cloning machine in the back?

I got up to a message from the store today: "Hi, I know you're already working, but would you like a 2-6 shift in the front of the store, sanitizing carts?"

I have no idea how that was supposed to work, since my shift at the register runs from 4:30 to 8:30 ....

Well, then, I should've taken it ... we close at 9 p.m., LOL, so it would've been a damn easy shift!

2-6AM would have had a few wrinkles as... *Bang bang bang* "Hey, are you open? Why aren't you open? You need to be open. I just need a few..."

I assume sanitizing carts involves using a spritzer bottle of some sort. When the customer bangs on the door, a spritz or two in their direction should convince them to leave.

Hey, it works on cats.

On the other hand, cats are smarter than those customers.

Speaking of clones, I am reminded of a video I first saw back around 1986, Clones In Love.

You wouldn't happen to know where Ark Ship B landed, would you? I haven't had a hair cut since March.

I once had a manager who considered putting a reference to Bill Watterson's Scientific Progress Goes "Boink" in a memo about staffing.
