Borders liquidation was just approved by the judge and starts tomorrow. Look like I will be out of a job I like come September-ish. Thirty to thirty-five of the stores may be sold to Books-A-Million, four from my district, but not ours.

Dammit.

Retail is what I know and what I like, I just signed a year lease last month.

I am taking today as my last day off from nothing, tomorrow the vultures swoop in and start picking us clean and the ugly signage goes up. Hopefully I can find something soon. I need to ask my landlady to let me pay the rent ahead of time so I can get paid through December, at least. Next day off begins the job hunt.

Bleh, I haven't had to job hunt in 11 years. So many companies have those "personality tests" that weork fine unless you are anyone with management experience. People with supervisory/management experience know that so many of those answers are "yes, but..." or "no, but..." instead of Definitely Yes or somesuch.

One perk, chairs, wifi,cafe, computers and phones will all be going away very shortly. We will only be there to change signage, ring 'em up and just get shit onto the shelves.

I need happy making alcohol.
