Floppy Disks – Still used for storage

This is going to be a quick post.

I went to Naturalizer (Glorietta) to pick-up my new favorite comfortable shoes which they sent off for repair. Aside from my favorite sales ladies who were congenial, well-knowledgeable, efficient and helpful, they gave me a huge dose of laughter. Look what I found on top of their cashier table:

I asked permission if I can take a shot of the disks as evidence for my blog. We all giggled and agreed.

Wow, Floppy disks!
