To all my dear blogging peeps you will hear less from me until March. I’m not disappearing all together, but as we are in the long process of traveling and moving the time I will have to commit and the access to internet may be spotty. This lady is going solo with two precious tots. I have a few awesome posts planned to post over the next two weeks.
In the meantime let me give you the nitty gritty of this Shopgirl’s World.
Coke VS Pepsi
First off, the people have spoken and the results are in. After a completely valid and Family Feud scientific process of a completely legitimate twitter survey at two in the morning CST it is proven after 125 votes that Coca-Cola is indeed superior to Pepsi:
Will do a new survey soon!
The Latest Retail Gossip:
Second is the sad news that despite the great strides of the Retail Strategy Goddess of Wet Seal, Melanie Cox, that it was too little too late for this brand and they are shutting down all locations. Check your local mall directories, if you have one nearby there should be some amazing deals there this week! For More info on this company and it’s continuous optimistic efforts please visit this page. To read their mission statement, go here. They ofcourse are close behind The Limited who closed all of their stores at the beginning of the month.
Over the week also the news from the San Antonio Rolling Oaks Mall shooting has come together. Both criminals have been apprehended, and according to what I have read are both facing charges of capital murder on top of aggravated robbery. Take a moment to remember the Good Samaritan, Jonathan Murphy and his widow this week.
Lowe’s is going through a shake up. In the end more than 2,000 employees will be laid off and management is going to be completely restructured, leaving department managers scattering to for new job titles. Though in the sea of terrible news, out of 248,000 employees, in the big scheme of things this is not so much the shake up as most would be anticipating in this climate. Very excited to see how their more customer centric focus plays out!

My “Dear Abby” Response
Dear McDonald’s Cashier,
I’m just curious, what exactly do you think the entire point of your job is? Catering to the customers, perhaps? You my friend need to consider that perhaps you are in the wrong profession. That’s okay, it’s not your gig. No worries, Trump is resting assured you have a position at a plant somewhere building cars, you can carry out mindless tasks without the hinderance of customers there. 😉
