i used to run the store at the very beginning of the new ownership. before that a lovely woman ran it (hence the name, GIRLS). i am amused at the comments about "the owner", whose name is Phillip, by the way. not "Phil", PHILLIP. and he IS rude and dismissive. you know how he told me i no longer managed the store? we had customers, were open, and he, with almost a smirk, casually told me my job had been "eliminated". yeah, he's AWESOME.
glad to hear Pedro's still around though. we got him for the critters. he went right to work and presto, no more problem. the 1st couple of weeks i'd come in in the morning, clean up the mieces pieces. ..apparently his job was never "eliminated". i do miss the pooches though. that made up for who i had to work for.
