The BLM Charlotte DaTechGuy Employment Plan

As you may or may not know I have a “day” job (actu­ally an overnight job) that I was forced to pick up when DaTip­Jar started falling in a bad econ­omy. I’ve been there since last Novem­ber other than a brief 3 week period that I was laid off.

A large amount of our work comes dur­ing the Christ­mas sea­son and as a rule hours and staffing increases to deal with the addi­tional volume.

Lately we’ve had a huge surge in work that has kept us busy that is much ear­lier than expected.

While we’ve all been grate­ful for this there seemed to be no ratio­nal expla­na­tion for it until I spoke to a co-​worker who told me of a rel­a­tive who despite hav­ing tick­ets to see the Car­olina Pan­thers play this week­end, decided to give it a miss due to fear of the pro­test­ers and violence.

That’s when it hit me.

All over the coun­try we are see­ing Ter­ror attacks at malls, black lives mat­ter protests, loot­ing and roads blocked and inno­cent pedes­tri­ans and dri­vers in dan­ger by vio­lent thugs.

Given that fact why bother to go out and put your­self at risk when you can order prod­uct online from the safety and secu­rity of your home. Not only is there no phys­i­cal risk but even if a riot means a trailer car­ry­ing your prod­uct is burned or looted it is the company’s respon­si­bil­ity to replace it.

Granted the actual chance of get­ting caught up in any of these things is very very low but when you are order­ing prod­uct online from your home, the chances go from low to zero.

And thus I’m guar­an­teed a full 40 hour work week or more for the fore­see­able future, although for myself I don’t think the price of riots and ter­ror­ism is a price worth pay­ing to get it.

A large amount of our work comes during the Christmas season and as a rule hours and staffing increases to deal with the additional volume.

Lately we’ve had a huge surge in work that has kept us busy that is much earlier than expected.

While we’ve all been grateful for this there seemed to be no rational explanation for it until I spoke to a co-worker who told me of a relative who despite having tickets to see the Carolina Panthers play this weekend, decided to give it a miss due to fear of the protesters and violence.

That’s when it hit me.

All over the country we are seeing Terror attacks at malls, black lives matter protests, looting and roads blocked and innocent pedestrians and drivers in danger by violent thugs.

Given that fact why bother to go out and put yourself at risk when you can order product online from the safety and security of your home. Not only is there no physical risk but even if a riot means a trailer carrying your product is burned or looted it is the company’s responsibility to replace it.

Granted the actual chance of getting caught up in any of these things is very very low but when you are ordering product online from your home, the chances go from low to zero.

And thus I’m guaranteed a full 40 hour work week or more for the foreseeable future, although for myself I don’t think the price of riots and terrorism is a price worth paying to get it.
