Another symptom of decline: increasing lack of product-line knowledge of foreign-born store clerks

I use convenience stores a fair bit.

One thing I’ve noticed a lot recently is a complete lack of knowledge on the part of subcontinental convenience store clerks on their product line.

Say you regularly buy a certain food or beverage product, then one day you notice there isn’t any more of it, and you go to ask the clerk, “Did you stop carrying X, or are you just out of it at the moment?”

Increasingly, you’ll get a blank look, and a ‘Uh…’

Recently, I laid into one: “You have no idea what I’m talking about, do you?”

“Sorry, boss!” (In the homeland, back during the Rаj, they’d have said ‘Sаһіb’; now they say ‘Boss’. Progress, I suppose…)

Yes, I get that head offices make business decisions that franchise owners don’t always get informed about. But they should make it their business to care and learn what’s happening. Their livelihoods, after all…

I’m not the only one who’s noticed increasing incompetence on their parts. One day, while in such a store, I watched a fellow Canadian rant at them over their misleading labelling about their brewed coffee products and their general incompetence at simply making a decent pot of coffee. I hoped he would simply take his business to a nearby Timmy’s instead, where he’ll get what he came for and the incompetents won’t get his money for substandard product and service…

And so, the decline and fall of our civilization continues…

Open letter to Max Bernier: my advice is, champion Sir John A. Macdonald!

Dear Maxime Bernier,

Now that you’ve struck out on your own, courageously and boldly as I noted, why not take up the cause of Sir John A. Macdonald?

As you know, the Grits are going to remove our first Prime Minister from our $10 bill, having first lumped three nobodies on their with him for now, planning to later on eliminate him altogether and the others in favour of some virtually unknown woman of colour, of little historic importance compared to our first Prime Minister.

And as you know, various Canadian cities such as Victoria have been removing statues of him, due to his being disparaged by First Nations leaders over his role in setting up the residential school system for aboriginals. As if that warrants unpersoning him, the Father of Confederation.

Champion him! Proclaim you will replace him back on the tenner! And will re-erect statues of him in cities that have removed him, as well as place them in cities that don’t have them, with armed guards to prevent Antifa and others from vandalizing / sabotaging them!

Like reduced immigration, that’s a winning issue, which will help you appeal to masses of ordinary Canadians.

Some free advice; no need to credit me. 😉

Yee-haw! Go, Mad Max!

Right on.

Whether or not he will get anywhere, it is brave of him. Even if a little self-interested. 😉

Nobody ever successfully challenged the status quo by being afraid to take risks.

Good on him.

And may the Lord bless his efforts to give Canadians a REAL choice.

Why did you wait a day to release last night’s Toronto terrorist’s name, police?

You knew his identity by this morning, because you identified his age and sex, so you knew who he was.

Why did you drag out the reveal?

So you could, with your CBC media lapdogs, help construct a narrative, blaming this on mental illness rather than his ethnocultural / religious background?

Not gonna fly.

I knew, soon as you delayed releasing his name, that he was gonna turn out to be one of them.

And I was right.

You worthless dhimmis.

 

Don’t call it a ‘BluesFest’ if the majority of the artists performing there aren’t blues musicians

Call it PopularMusicOfVariousUnrelatedDifferentGenresFest or whatever else; don’t ride the coat-tails of a musical tradition that you clearly cared nothing about, and were okay with smothering and covering with music (or even hip-hop) not even remotely related to the original purpose of the event, just to make more money.

 

Messed up priorities: Sunday money-making is now more important than Canada Day, apparently

So we have Sunday shopping, alas, and have had for some years now.

However, usually on public statutory holidays like Canada Day (which is tomorrow), many businesses close.

But I’ve noticed that this year, oddly enough, many businesses that normally close on holidays (including government-run provincial liquor stores) like Canada Day are actually staying open this year and instead closing on Monday, thus matching what the banks and civil service do (take off Monday if a holiday lands on a Sunday).

But that means that they stay open on the day of the holiday itself – which they otherwise normally take off – and instead close the day after the holiday, which makes no sense.

Apparently commerce is more important to them not only than the Lord’s Day, but even special individual Sundays here and there which happen to also be public holidays, period.

Bow down before Mammon, greedy businesses and government-run liquor stores, etc.

For that is your true god. At least the mask is off this time; I suppose we should be thankful for that at least…

 

Ontario is Ford Nation

{pause indefinite hiatus / un-shun}

Yeah.

Ford and his Tories won all of rural southern Ontario (from the southwest to the east) and much of suburbia; that was enough for an overwhelming majority.

The NDP won in both their traditional strongholds and other urban areas that usually would go Liberal, so they will form the Opposition.

The Grits were utterly crushed, and will lose party status, but they’ll probably bounce back and the NDP will lose support.

It’ll be interesting.

Still annoyed at Ford for kicking out so-con activist and leadership rival Tanya Granic Allen, without whose support he wouldn’t have won the leadership in the first place, and thus signalling how unimportant social issues will be for him, despite actively courting Christians’ and religious minorities’ vote. I didn’t expect Ford to be anything but a populist free-marketer, but might have been nice to have been thrown a bone or two.

Sorry that the Green leader won a seat but the farther-right so-con Trillium Party lost its only seat.

Still, after 15 years of misrule by Grits, finally a Tory regime in Ontario again.

I’ll take Mike Harris Part II, with a touch of Trump populism.

Happy days are here again.

For now, at least.

And may this be the beginning of the end for Le Trou D’Eau, too…
