Praying for PDQ

At work I’ve been digging through hundreds of pages of a popular mass retailers “safety guidelines” and “employee training manuals” (yes it is as fun as it sounds) for an upcoming case and they keep referring to PDQ. “Make sure items that are PDQ quality are well stocked at eye level.” PDQ this, PDQ that. What the heck is PDQ? After a few minutes of research on the Internet (what did we ever do without it?) PDQ means “Pretty darn quick” in the retail world. Place items that move “pretty darn quick” on the shelves above the items for easy restocking. “Make sure you have plenty of sunscreen in stock during the summer months and tell your employees to expect PDQ placement”

PDQ. Here is hoping and praying for a PDQ adoption.

Sidenote: There is also a 20 page guide on how to properly use a box cutter. My husband should be forced to read this material prior to taking the next “Team Survival Challenge” with our youth. * Chad: see pages 751-771 of the manual to avoid trips to the emergency room in the middle of nowhere, resulting in stitches and permanent scarring.*
