I had a dream I was in the toy department of some store and hanging there was a brand new toy of Ichy from the obscure 80s cartoon "Dinosaucers." It was a tiny, tiny plastic figure in a package. I said, "I must be dreaming!" (I was right.)
I didn't see any other "Dinosaucers" toys, but there was another toy that was supposed to be a cloud-like Super Mario bad guy. On the package was a testimonial from a Dutch mom who said her son liked this character because it had a Dutch name, which was supposed to mean "just a little mist." (I don't remember what the supposedly "Dutch" name was. I don't speak Dutch.)
Anyway, of course I woke up and there was no Ichy toy 😔. Oh well...maybe there'll be a reboot someday with an accompanying toy line. Preferably not so tiny.
Today at work, it was fairly quiet again. I don't know what was up yesterday. Monday isn't usually one of our busy days.
I did have one customer tonight who had come while I was on lunch to buy some body jewelry, but there was a problem opening the display it was locked in. She claimed to have been there a half an hour when I got back and stayed another half an hour while I tried to get help to open it. Seems like an odd time to spend an hour in a store trying to get body jewelry. She was wearing a mask, too.
They've installed signs telling people to stay 6 feet apart (in addition to announcing it) and done a few other things, like shutting down the drinking fountains.
The store I work at had been fairly quiet after the Coronavirus lockdown announcement, until today. It wasn't busy for a normal day, but for a lockdown, it was ridiculous. You might imagine that one family member would run in the store and grab essentials. Perhaps some people were doing that. But plenty of them were 100% in casual shopping mode, ambling slowly around the store, trailed by large numbers of children, gathering in aisles to chat and trying on shoes and jewelry. Why are these people not at home? I'd RATHER be at home, if I didn't need this job.
