I guess I'll head on back to bed now, and try to sleep some more.

Good night, Chuck.

Good night, Fritz.

Oh, I hate ladders!   If I was in that store, and a customer came in, and  said "I want that puzzle there." and pointed up to the top shelf, I'd look back and go "Ummm....no you don't!"

That would be the bad part about working there, all right.

But they probably had ladders that were more like a set of movable stairsteps, with big wide and thick steps to stand on.  Not the kind of ladders that you'd paint a house with, or change a lightbulb with.

I would have needed a library-type ladder, that's for sure, at that puzzle store.

The puzzles went almost all the way up to the ceiling.

customers would be coming in, and you'd be too busy putting puzzles together!

That's probably true!

One thing nice about the Bed, Bath & Beyond in Colorado is that it's just a few storefronts from an Italian buffet restaurant, Cinzzetti's.  Since it's a buffet, there's a fixed charge per person there, and during the daytime it's all you can eat for only about $10.  Drinks are extra, but I usually just get water with lemons.  I still go there whenever I'm in town.

Cinzzetti's has one location in Kansas City, too, but it's not a national chain.  The CO one is in an old stand-alone movie theater that was on the edge of a mall (since torn down and made into outdoor-entrance storefronts).  Since it was a movie theater, it's huge inside, and has been decorated with pillars, mosaics, curving serving stations with stone floors, etc.  There are numerous serving stations, one for pizza, one for pasta...I generally skip both of those. 

I'll mainly focus on the salad bar (very good bruschetta and toasted bread), and various green salads and fruit.  Then I'll get more of the "American" food at the "full meals" serving station....excellent mashed potatoes, gravy, roasted carrots, roasted potatoes, broccoli.  There's "Tuscan chicken" and another Italian inspired chicken variety.  And also there's a big bowl of yellow sauce with capers, which is supposed to go on fish, but I put it on my chicken and everything else.

And then there's the dessert bar, which has those little Italian pastries (rolled up but with creme filling, I can't think what they're called at the moment) and they have ICE CREAM.  They used to have cinnamon ice cream, one of my favorites, but they took that away and replaced it with LIME SHERBET.   ;D   ;D

And all this and more, for not much money.

Oh, it was!  The kind of store which I would have opened myself, if I'd the money and opportunity, and I would have enjoyed working there and selling puzzles, and stocking the shelves....

Or buying them, if I couldn't own the store.  Funny that I never went back.  They had an overwhelming stock of merchandise, but the store was just too far out of the way for me.
