And now it’s time for a positive post…


When I blog about work, it’s usually in a complaining spirit, and it’s hard to blame me. There’s a lot to complain about. But this week something out of the ordinary happened, in the good way, and I figured that, in the interest of fairness, I should bring some attention to it.

Twice a year, our store – along with all the other stores in our chain – does a fund raiser for MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association, aka Jerry’s Kids). During March, our store raised enough money to send three kids to summer camp, which is pretty cool. We also came in third for the entire chain for the most money raised, which is pretty remarkable, considering we’re in a small, very impoverished, town. Here’s what the store looked like in mid-March. Each green shamrock equals $1, each gold shamrock equals $5.

So, on Tuesday, the employees of our store, and their families, were rewarded with a tasty cake.

Our new employee chant? “We’re number three! We’re number three!”
