I survived another Black Friday! It was actually pretty fun. Almost all of the customers were happy and pleasant - I only had one snippy customer. I had some really fun people working at my bank of registers, too, so that kept it fun and easy. We died down for a few hours after 3am, so I was able to leave around 5am, yay. I came home and slept for a few hours, and now it's 3 1/2 hours of punkin' chunkin'. :)

It begins

I'm working from 10pm tonight until 8am tomorrow morning. I really wish I was working this at my old store, with the old crew. I know they'll be having such a crazy fun night. I don't know what kind of night I'll be having; I don't know my new coworkers enough to guess how this night is going to go. I do know that the new store is going to have all kinds of food and treats all night/day - pancakes and waffles, bacon and sausage, pastries, etc. So that part should be good.

I'm supposed to be a Line Monitor, which means I get to tell people where to go. ;P Unfortunately, I can't tell them to STFU and GTFO.

I have to be at work at 4am today, becuse we OPEN AT 5AM FOR RETURNS. Why the fuck we're opening at 5AM THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS is beyond me. I can't imagine that anyone in their right mind is going to get up this fucking early to return shit to the store on the day after Christmas.

Of course, I don't know what time we normally open the day after Christmas, because I haven't worked it in a few years because it's been on the weekend the last few years and I usually DON'T WORK ON THE WEEKENDS.

Except this year I've had to work EVERY SINGLE SUNDAY IN DECEMBER because they have to start their 3Day sales on THURSDAY instead of FRIDAY, which means that all the big graphics have to come down on SUNDAY BEFORE THE STORE OPENS which means that I have to drag my ass in dark and early every Sunday this month just to take down stupid signs.

Bah fucking humbug.

Off to face the hordes of crazy Black Friday shoppers. Also, I got my period this morning, which just adds a whole 'nother level of holiday cheer to the day.

And while I don't relish the thought of MOAR FUD right now (urgh), I know I need to eat something before dealing with the zombie invasion holiday shoppers, so I'm having a toasted bagel with peanut butter. I figure that's enough protein to get me through the first few hours a least.

I just worked a 12 hour shift full of crabby, needy customers.

Can it be February now, please?

And the Christmas music started at work on Monday. *sigh* Even the customers are complaining about it. I've told at least three people today that they're preaching to the choir about the too-early Christmas music.

At least it's only being played every third song.

Am off to face the hordes of crazy Black Friday shoppers. As usual, I'm behind the jewelry counter, which is just fine with me. I already 'called' one of the registers, so with any luck I'll just be ringing. I don't really have the patience to deal with indecisive people on the best of days, let alone today.

Wish me luck!!
