Beach ball wasn't too bad. I don't get how the watermelon suppose to take 60 min and flamingo is given 20.
yeah, none of the times on the directions made sense but they never do lol. my brain could not comprehend the pictured directions for the beach ball, i actually had to go and watch the video on workbench for the first time ever to see wtf was going on.

Lol. We have zero hours for it. My.old pptl took gen the part of the old OH that said mothers day. But the rest is still there. Don't ask me who will do it. They told me it wasn't my job anymore, so it's not. Let it just get thrown away.
someone's going to have to do it eventually because 90% of it carries through father's day and probably the rest of summer. smh i don't know what they were thinking getting rid of the signing role.

What'll happen is ..... eventually, someone will notice it's not up and panic. Then they'll rush me to do it. Probably while I'm the middle of setting a pog. It'll be "Do it as fast as you can since we don't have hours for it." Well you what, fuck that shit. You want to manage and make the bucks, then manage. Dumb asses.

When they do approach you, let them know it will take MINIMUM 3 hours to put up.

The directions for the overhead ceiling grid suck. It doesn't angle it for you so you have to play around with it until its about right. Spacing is off as well.

There's also an error in the pin wheel instruction. It shows to install the wheel clockwise but when you see the page where it showing wire length its counter clockwise, so you have to swap the left and right wires on the pin.

It's the most frustrating thing ever to watch the position you take such pride in go to hell, but just try to hang in there. The same thing happened to me back in February/March/April when our new ETL was adamant about me not doing signing. Pallets started to build up in the steel. I would sneak away on days this ETL was off to break them down. (They break down pretty quickly when most of it goes straight into the baler!) I was told to only push truck and set transitional pogs. It just took one REALLY BAD visit from district leaders for said ETL to get CHEWED out because the planet and rocket ship signing still wasn't hung in softlines, amplified gifting had no signage whatsoever, softlines CSE's all still needed to be changed, and new appliance displays were all sitting under the line.

Now when I get called over the walkie I'm addressed as "signing specialist" :)

Mine hung weird too. I added another wire to the blue part. So white, red, and blue at the top all have wires hanging from them. Looked much better after adding it!

I'm a 14' ceiling so white and blue I used a 24" and a 12" wire and then red I used an 18" and a 12" wire.

4hr 20min if you add them all up but direction pack. Non-pog guide gives 30min, 1hr for the week in put up time total, no take down. I mysupported the discrepancy. That freaking flamingo... they should have made blow up floats and sold them as sun squad.
That would have been so much easier!
