Being two chicks in a warehouse has a lot of perks and a few challenges. One of those challenges is heavy lifting. Don’t get me wrong, Catherine and I do our fair share of toting boxes and the occasional piece of furniture, but when it comes to heavy stuff like desks, cubicles, and the like – not so much.
In the warehouse, and in life, there are times when you just ——–feminists avert your eyes ————— need a man.
Luckily our board member, Mike Sanders of Ted R. Sanders Moving is willing to help. This week Mike, his brother Randy, and the super efficient and nice moving guys helped us out by delivering a donation of hundreds of office chairs to CRC. There were so many, we couldn’t fit them all in the warehouse no matter how hard we tried to Tetris them in.
As they unloaded the truck, they said “oh, by the way, there are a couple of desks too.” AWESOME – more stuff to give away! Good thing they came with big strong men to lift them for us.
The point is that there is a reason the first three letters of MANual labor are M*A*N. The two chicks are not ashamed to ask a man (or several) to do the heavy lifting from time to time. In the words of Clark W. Griswold in Christmas Vacation, “We’re all in this together!”
