The Oncoming Storm10:55 AM
I feel it is the calm before the storm. Everything seems quiet as a lamb now, but I know the minute I leave work I will be battling rush hour traffic, scrambling around the house to make cookies, cleaning the house after I trash it making said cookies, making sure that I have everything ready for my race in the morning, etc. Then of course there is the actual day: Run, parade, dinner 1, & dinner 2. Then? Probably enter a food coma.
Kyle and I are definitely taking the weekend to ourselves, this is the first Black Friday that I have had off in years. I am not planning on shopping, I really, really like things and all, but no. If you do partake in that monstrosity, please be kind. Be kind to the other shoppers, and of course the employees. I worked one Black Friday at Best Buy, years ago, and it was the worst. I mean, we got a really, really good lunch out of it, but everyone was required to work no less than ten hours, and let me tell you: People are bastards. There is nothing like getting screamed at because someone's credit card is declined, or because we sold out of a product, just to have 3-4 more people yell obscenities at you within the hour. Also be nice to the employees at fast-food restaurants/coffee shops etc. if you stop in. Those places are busy too, and also cannot be held responsible if the last Elmo was sold out at Toys R Us, despite the fact that you waited in line for 10 hours. Also, make sure you drink water and take a break for a snack, you will probably be less cranky. Either way, be careful out there, kids!
