During this New Year cold snap, I get the feeling that I’m working for Ebenezer Scrooge. Not for how much I’m paid, but how warm the place is.
I swear, it’s because a heater isn’t working [even one of the assistant managers said that]. Or, it could be that our store rooms border the outside walls, so they aren’t well insulated. And the fact that the doors are constantly opening.
But, really, it’s probably the Scrooge thing. Do you think Jacob Marley is haunting the toy store? Or the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future? That’d be fun. …if a bit unsettling.
Who doesn’t want to travel through time (and relive past mistakes?). Pretty sure every Dr. Who fan would love it. Perhaps Scrooge was the first Doctor?
Then of course, I walk outside and realize work was actually warm, if only because the walls act as a windblock.
Yep, winter’s here. Sorry global warming; guess we’ll see you in May or June.
