Going back to work today after an entire week off. Can't remember when or if I've ever done that. I gave myself the last two days at home, which was a huge bonus. And my weekend is coming up, which is yet another bonus. (I really need to get back to the garden...)
I spent an hour and a half the other night after closing just straightening up. Everything in the store seemed just a little out of place. My "Half-Inch" rule just never seems to sink in with my employees, no matter how often I repeat it. I just don't think they see it, or that they see it as important.
So I go around from top to bottom, squaring things up, making things look even, and otherwise demonstrating my OCD tendencies....
It's the deal I made with myself: it's O.K. to pack the store from top to bottom, but ONLY if you keep it neat and tidy, dude.
