Last Weekend

This is a quick one.  We are off to do an event with The Junior Forest Wardens and then right afterward I have to head to work.

I did hand in my resignation last night, so this will be my last weekend at the bookstore.  Like I said, I will miss helping the customers.  I had a fabulous conversation with an elderly lady last night, and I got her to buy The Time Traveller’s Wife.  I love that book.  But I will NOT miss answering questions regarding the US/Canadian pricing.  “No, sir, you can not bring in US dollars in order to pay US prices”.   I mean, really.  Have you ever been able to?  I’d like to try that in England the next time I go.  Bring Canadian currency. 

On the hand, their beef about the price differences is a valid one, but I have to keep my Company face on. 

Wall-Mart apparently has switched to US prices for their books.  Of course, the customers don’t seem to realize that it’s actually more expensive that what they usually sell their books at!!  Funny.

 Anyhoo.  I have to run.  I hope y’all have a great day!

    You must be near the border. That is funny about the Walmart “upping” their prices to appease whiney Americans. Sheesh.

    Forest Rangers again? The do a lot of activities. That is wonderful. I bet Adrian is pretty happy about that. You know…maybe Adrian could start a business on the same lines. He has the knowhow.

    I think congrats are in order for quiting your job. Hope you get one that works better for you.

    I’ve always wondered about the price difference thing on books. It never has made sense to me. Isn’t the dollar value pretty close to the same anymore anyway? It seems like a pretty big difference to me. funny about the walmart thing though.
