Thanks, Bo. I am always amazed at names I am not familiar with.

Default Stupid Boss story...im bored

In the 90s i get hired at a now defunct Nationwide store (Wards). The regular staff in the front office couldn't squeeze me in there busy schedule to interview me so i kindly was asked to reschedule.
Before i could the DIRECTOR himself says "Go to my office, ill handle this" and interviews me himself. I nail the interview and get the job as im about to get up and shake his hand he pulls his hand back, points at me at chest level and in a stern voice says
"LET ME SAY SOMETHING SO YOU UNDERSTAND ME! I DON'T LIKE THIEVES or THIS DISCOUNTING TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. IF YOUR CAUGHT ILL HOLD YOU MYSELF TILL THE COPS GET THERE! ARE WE CLEAR YOUNG MAN? "
I complied and nodded (as i hate people who steal aswell).
I toiled at that job for 3 months when i realized customer service wasn't for me, the week im scheduled to leave i go to pick up my last check one of my co workers gave me the news.
THE DIRECTOR HIMSELF was caught on camera hiding items near the dumpster and than backing up his truck and loading them up and leaving, giving family everything they wanted in the store free.
He was led out in cuffs right in front of me.

Default Christmas Toys that you loved

I think I was mostly normal growing up. I loved my BB gun ,never put my eye out (at least not yet)I really loved my Chemistry Set and my Vac-U-Form. I had a bunch of sisters. Do you remember "Magic Mary's Instant Cakes"? Wow maybe I am flashing back but honestly --I think they were pretty good. The Easy Bake Oven and all the spin-offs that used light bulbs. The Pizza oven was really bad. One thing we alway's got was "Wood Burning Sets" and "Plaster of Paris" whatever that is. Remember "Jon Nagey"? He sold artist kits. ( I just remembered--I am supposed to stop with the quotation marks..sorry) We alway's got those but it never looked right. It was normal to get the same thing year after year. Board games, modeling clay, plastic models.We liked it all
