    On a recent cruise on Carnival, I asked our room steward about his work week.
    He said it is. 7days/week through his entire contract, he puts in about 14 hours/day.
    He has never left the ship. doesn't have time to leave. He barely gets enough time to sleep.
    Don’t ever begrudge these guys their tip, it’s about all they have to look forward to.

    Sears has repremanded employees for chasing down shoplifters also. I do not shop at Sears anymore, and I will stop shopping at Lowes.

    They all tell us how much they lose to due shoppliftrs. and employee theft. Their margin is about 4%. Thus when someone steals a $600 item, they need to sell 25x that or about $15000 to make up for it.
    So they raise raise their prices. I'll go to Home Depot. A friend of mine works their and he notice someone purchasing a $29.00 item but the box was open. The guy had stuck a $500 power tool in the box that was for a vent pipe. They didn't fire him but gave him an atta boy.
    Not an Oh S___t!
    So long Loews. I'm hopeing my family will do the same. They've build quiet a few houses and a lot of the money was funnelled thru Lowes.
