general update

JCP opened on Sunday, the soft opening. Soft meaning unadvertised. Except, of course, for the several thousands of in home mailers sent to the general area. SO not only am I dealing with stylists who don't know 'the JCP way', but also customers too. A lot of them. Add a receptionist who needs total training.

When the receptionist trainee answered the phone, I knew she was talking because I saw her lips move, but I heard nothing. I might have to call when she next works to see if I can hear her.

The JCP 'new salon vision' calls for a reception area with no stool for the receptionist. Someone is on crack. My new schedule has me working 5 days straight. One day with no chair on hard floors is brutal. By day 5 I might want to be on crack.

It's all good.

There a picture of him in every Penneys. It's always crooked. He looks like Frank Lloyd Wrights second cousin twice removed but no one knows about him because it's a big family scandal.
