Put up most of the overheads today, and those BTC ones around the store are seriously going to kill somebody. Heaviest ones I can remember in a while and only being supported by two cables... had to double up one of them that was hanging right above a futon display or I couldn't sleep at night.

Oh the books?

I forgot about those.

You mean you can't find yours? Mine came in later in the week via FedEx, it wasn't on the signing pallet.
I mean I read a label that said "BTS seasonal" on my pallet and now that I broke the pallet down (the label was behind shrink wrap and it's definitely not there now), I don't have it.

I literally hallucinated.

Yeah, I didn't like the way that felt either. I also didn't like that that foam tape was the only thing holding the outer pieces to the middle. So I put an extra set of wires on the outer and inner pieces just so if that tape does give, they'll still be attached to the ceiling.

How long has it taken y'all to do the two dump bins and the two focals? It'll be about 7 hours for me and I feel like I've been doing this too long

It's Monday at 4pm and nothing built. I can't go into specifics, but someone that's salaried at my store put the pallets somewhere unattainable until today. But hey, that's clearly MY fault because I'll still ultimately be held accountable for why everything isn't finished this week.

Nevermind any of the facts that I tried to explain to anyone that would listen that we should have been building last week. It's warning a child not to touch a red hot stove. Don't do it. Don't do it. But they have to find out for themselves.

What do these look like? I only have the ones that go over the bulk bins.

Your blood must boil everyday. I would feel the same.

Yeah they didn't send me any dump bins. Also didn't send a few of the shippers I needed, and a couple of other fun mixups.
I got lucky. I got the back half of the dump bin I'm missing, and it had the STATH.03916.24836 whatever number on it, so I instantly MySupported.

Everybody pushes tomorrow but me :D
