Got my taxes done this afternoon. Ugh. After seeing how shockingly, depressingly, little I made last year (and how very little of it I'm getting back) I realized that I actually do need to get a second job instead of just idly tossing the idea around. And that maybe I should start selling my crochet like everyone tells me I should.

What an eye-opener.

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.

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.

I was in the bathroom at work a few days ago, in a stall, minding my own, when all of a sudden I hear a lighter sparking from the last stall. Over and over. Then I heard the woman inhaling. And the lighter again. And more inhaling.

But I didn't smell cigarette smoke.

Then it sounded like she was putting a tube of lipstick back together - that hollow, plasticky sound you hear when you put the cap back on. Then she left.

I peeked through the cracks around my door, and she was an older lady. Not a teenager, not some bimbo, but a grown-up in a nice coat and an up-do. After she leaves I leave my stall and go into hers.

It reeked of pot smoke!!! Very strongly, too. How bad/boring is your day that you feel the need to spark up in the middle of the day in the bathroom at Kohl's??

So, of course, I found this hysterically funny and had to tell all my co-workers about it, lol. It was the talk of the store of like two days. And that's not even the craziest thing to happen at that store!

Ah, retail. Never change.

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!!
