Power to the Players robin here, at a new store. Long story short, couldn’t get a job after I moved, am now working seasonal at new Power to the Players store, with hopes of being kept on afterwards.
At my old store, there was a strong sense of camaraderie, and everyone was really good friends. It came with having such a small staff. There was a joke going around the store that I was not to be trusted with the box cutter or tape gun, as I “got way too excited to use them”. It was just a joke, no feelings hurt, I gave back as good as I got, it was fun.
At the new store, on day one, I got handed a box cutter and told to break down the boxes in the back room. One of the boxes had been glued shut and then taped on top of that. I cut the tape, closed the box cutter, put it safely aside, and went to pull the flaps open.
Bam. Cardboard cut. Cue me staring at my finger and wondering how the heck that happens. Of course I had to cut myself on the thing that’s NOT supposed to hurt me.
cardboard, paper, and plastic cuts are a fact of life in video game retail.
I keep seeing a post floating around with pictures of Bush visiting American soldiers overseas and it asks when the last time Obama did that was. I’m pretty sure Obama has made visits but that’s not the real point. I would think that the more pertinent question would be “Who sent them there to begin with?”
Ok Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, (yes groan, but listen up) has this new app out (iPhone and Android) that’s for people in abusive relationships. It’s called Aspire News and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the “Help” section of the app, it leads you to domestic violence resources and also has a “Go Button” that when you press it, if you’re in a compromising situation, alerts local authorities as well as local shelters and starts recording everything that is going on.
Now, if you’re looking up resources on the app and your abuser is near, simply press the X button and it brings you to a random news page. Same goes for the actual foundation site.
