Something’s Up at Work

Today, work called me. I assumed it was to say it would be a while before we went back, seeing as Governor Whitmer extended the stay-at-home order to the middle of June. So I assumed I knew what the call would be about. I was wrong.

The store manager told me to show up at work on the 26th at 3. I said, “This 26th? What day of the week would that be?” She said Tuesday. I said, “Three days from now Tuesday?” She said yes. I said okey-dokey.

So I went online to check out anything GICMH put online.  “We are hoping to open more locations soon while still keeping everyone’s safety a priority.” That was one of the lines. For all those folks wondering if Goodwill is going to survive, I can tell you that, in mid-Michigan at least, they plan on expanding. Expanding into where? What will we be told? Perhaps some of our hours will be cut or increased. Except for Lansing and East Lansing, this area is quite rural. MSU is a little island of diversity in a sea of cows and corn. Perhaps this is what happens when they continue to get endless donations while the stores are closed. All those donations are probably filling warehouses by now..

I am greatly intrigued.

About cdhoagpurple

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.
