Retail no-nos

Retail is hard business.  Especially these days as more and more folks shop online.  So, the one thing you don’t want to do is buy yourself a ton of bad publicity by treating the daughter of one of the most widely read blogs on the net badly when she goes to buy a coffee maker at your retail store.  More here.  I predict that within 24 hours the company will grovel in a major way to avoid any more bad publicity.

Weekend Update

The title of this post is a homage to the old SNL feature when Dennis Miller was with the cast.  IMHO, SNL and in particular, Weekend Update have never been the same.

Not much on the modeling front.  This tends to be a bad time of year for modeling, with all the holiday hooha and such.  BTW, Happy Festivus guys.  As a friend noted, the airing of grievences is liable to take a while this year.

Did Christmas shopping this year.  Spent time in Target, which I haven’t done in years, ever since they banned the Salvation Army bell ringers from their stores.  I actually made purchases there, I am sad to say.

Overall, I noticed that, unlike prior years, things were noticeably more quiet in the stores I visited.  I do think the economy has slowed, much more than we may have been led to believe.

Weather was warm this weekend, but they are forecasting snow for today.  We will see.
