@stuffisthings So much shade. :)
@Dinosaur_Senior Wonderful! I volunteered with them after Hurricane Sandy—they are doing great work.
@echolikebells It's just a lady and an elf boy drinking from a flask and carrying cats around while Johnny Cash sings some Christmas hits, and it's WONDERFUL.
@WayDownSouth The Wall Street Journal had a piece in October about why people prefer human cashiers to self-checkout lanes, and in 2011, Albertson's, one of the largest grocery stores in the U.S., eliminated its self-checkout lanes after using them for a decade citing a desire for more human interaction. A decade ago, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there were 800,100 employed grocery cashiers with an hourly mean wage of $8.65. The Bureau's latest data shows that there are currently 831,770 employed grocery cashiers with an hourly mean wage of $10.24. The data doesn't show grocery clerks being priced out of their jobs. As I noted a week ago—data from Goldman Sachs and The Labor Department show that the number of low-wage jobs have been rapidly rising since the '90s and replacing mid-wage work. These jobs aren't disappearing.
@blair Swapped it just for you!
@erinep Make your own waffles, yes!
@karenb Yes, definitely, and as I wrote previously, not everyone needs a million dollars to retire.
@andnowlights Anyone who wants to talk to me should send me an email!
@stuffisthings Let me check how much I have in my change jar.
