refers to the conservative christian owners of the giant Hobby Lobby chain of stores having won an injunction against Obamacare’s birth control requirement, allowing the for-profit company to withhold contraceptive coverage from its employees. The Supreme Court is now to review the case ..(here)
Oh gawd. I worked for Hobby Lobby, and they are awful! Everyone who worked there was a conservative Christian (other than me, of course). During one of our meetings I asked why we only had one isle of Halloween stuff, since it’s one of the craftiest holidays, and was chewed out by the manager. She said we shouldn’t have a Halloween isle at all because it was the Devil’s holiday, and then no one would sit with me in the break rooms any more.
They also hang signs that say they are closed on Sundays so that their employees can spend time with family, but that’s not exactly true. The one I worked at hired one person per department, called them a manager and made them responsible for all ordering, shelving, cleaning, and customer service, while running to the front every 5 seconds to be cashiers, as we only had one devoted cashier. Since those aren’t reasonable expectations, they told us that if we weren’t finished we’d have to come in on Sunday to finish, on top of our already overtime schedule.
To be honest, it’s the only job I’ve ever walked out on. I got desperately sick right before Christmas. I got a doctor’s excuse to be out for a week, but my boss told me I’d be fired if I was out for more than 3 days. So I went to work coughing so hard you could hear me clear across the giant outlet store and dripping goo from my face…. Turns out customers don’t like sick employees, and several people asked if I was ok and told the manager I should go home…. So then I got chewed out for being at work sick and sent home.
I was so livid that when I got back I put in my two weeks. About one and a half weeks into it, somebody made a disgusting remark about non-Christian holidays on the same day I got chewed out for still being behind from being sick. I told the one co-worker I liked and just walked out, no notice.
So far, this is the most popular post on my side blog, Texture fetish. These photos may not be as beautiful as the reflection of clouds on the beach or fish shadows in a pond, but they ARE mysterious.
I’m trying to keep Texture Fetish pretty simple, so I thought I’d reblog and explain where these photos came from. I found this ice wall at a zoo, near an arctic exhibit. It was probably in Mississippi, Louisianna, or Tennessee, as I’ve spent most of my time in those places, but I couldn’t be sure.
We spent 30 minutes with our hands on the ice, and only made the faintest impressions, such as the one on the far right of the top picture. The deeper holes, like the one on the bottom middle, where deep enough to loose your fingers in. At the top of the wall, it looked like water had simply poured out of a crack and froze almost immediately. The only thing we could figure out was that maybe the deeper prints were made at the same time as the ice crystallized. We were never able to find out how they were really made, so I guess they’ll remain a mystery.
