  • Margaret is promoted to manager, and her friend takes advantage. Grandma is convinced business is slow because of bad feng shui.

    Interesting that Margaret's friend would so easily take advantage of her promotion. Margaret has to fire her, and then deal with the replacement, who is just too perfect. Margaret doesn't like having her friend not working with her, and they eventually make up.

    Grandma is so funny with the feng shui, or anything really. Definately the star of the show altho it is really about Margaret.

    Another episode with realistic elements- someone taking advantage when their friend is promoted. And of course, superstition. What I want to know is why the store isn't curious about someone getting fired and rehired so quickly!moreless
