All of the pallets that come into the store are shrink wrapped. This usually makes unloading the trucks easier, but not always. The way they stack some of the pallets you would need about a foot of wrap to keep them from falling. One of my co-workers learned a valuable lesson the other night about the shrink wrap. He was cutting it off of a pallet of two liter sodas. He cut too deep and sliced open one of the bottles. He drenched two customers who had just passed by. If you really don't know what happens when you cut a soda bottle, trust me when I tell you it is very messy. I have seen bottles explode when dropped, but this is only the second time I have seen one cut. Some people get so busy they don't think and cut too deep. We lose too much merchandise from this. I try and open boxes with my hands as much as possible to avoid this. Sadly, a lot of workers don't care.
We are at the time of the year when sales slow down. In Georgia school starts back up in a little over a month. People are saving their money for the special that the state gives consumers, the tax free weekend. There is no state sales tax on school supplies and clothes. There are restrictions on what qualifies, but we are extremely busy when it hits. Grocery sales also go up during that weekend because some people like getting everything at once. Of course once back to school is over Halloween hits and the Christmas can't be far behind. The crazy days are coming. Retail is so much fun.
