Got Shitcanned Today…and couldn’t feel better

31 Mar

Thanks to the wonders of Amazon.com, with their promises of next day delivery and razor thin margins, my bookstore is closing down in a month.  If for no other reason than to record it, I thought I should post something tonight.

I know the news hit some of the staff hard.  I know a few have been there for as long as anyone can remember.  And I must admit I was slightly high during the staff meeting when our manager broke the news.  But I still feel great about the news!

I don’t want to jinx anything, but I feel I can get away with saying that I hope this is precisely the wake-up call that I need to light the fire under my ass to get a job that I think fits me.

Now…I’ve been working for 20 years.  I’ve owned my own business and I’ve worked for minimum wage.  Still to do: figure out what exactly “a job that fits me” means.

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
