Work has been going well and all the family is really falling into a routine including me. I have always enjoyed working with the public but here lately there seems to be a burning errmmmmm uber irritating question at least 4 or more people (I kid you not, are sloppy joes really that popular!?!?!?!) per day feel the need to ask...........where do YOU hide/keep YOUR sloppy joe mix. Well let me first assure you I do not personally and intentionally hide the stupid cans of sloppy joe mix in the deep abyss (AKA the stockroom) of our store from unsuspecting customers. Since ownership of said mix seems to be mine I will tell you I keep it on isle 2 and if you open your eyes and READ you can find it yourself quite easily actually. Depending on how many times per day I am asked or how the day is going my feelings can range from happily showing them where it is after they were told (granted they didn't argue with me about where it was) and still can't seem to find it, to wanting to throw it at them (preferably from isle 6), or plain wanting to punch them in the face. I'm thinking of making a GIANT sign that says "Find your elusive Sloppy Joe mix here on isle 2 where I TOLD you it was" but I figure that wont work since they cant read the can it comes in. My second thought is to make recipe cards and attach them to my shirt so they can make the darn stuff instead of relying on a stinkin can. I know I seem bitter about the whole thing but our store is not big, 6 whole isles, and I swear to you the same people are asking each week. If your feelin spunky go to your local small store and ask where they hide the sloppy joe mix and watch the reaction you get =)) (granpa did that this week and I thought a co worker was going to snap even tho he was kidding) or track down a random employee and ask for a fruit salad recipe or perhaps there favorite flan recipe you would truly be suprised at the questions people ask. Happy day all thanks for stopping by and don't dare ask, muhahahahahaha!!!
