ATU :: Earth Clois

And Yea, Though I Scurry Through The Hordes Of Depraved Customers, I Shall Fear No Nervous Breakdown

 Tomorrow is Black Friday. Retail has no appropriate words for a day such as this that does not involve the Ninth Circle of Hell.

When you're out there tomorrow, please remember that any surly attitude you get comes from being wake for insane hour at the will of big corporations who are determined to sell all the merchandise they possibly can in as few hours as they can. We, the store employees, are not your enemies. We are just as grumpy, tired, and over-caffeinated as you. And when that person rings up your purchase, think of me, Abby, and Maaike. 

And pray for us. We're going to need it.

Stop laughing.

Home Stretch...Until Sunday

Both Out of Reach and Lois Lane versus Gazeera are betaed and posted over at 12days_of_clois, Thanksgiving turned out pretty good this year, I'll finally get paid tonight (thanks, BB&B, for making the paper checks come two days late!), promots for the Christmas round are done over at 12 Days, and I just have to make it through tonight's cleanup after the hollocaust before I have Saturday off to recharge my batteries. 

And then I will be running Sunday alone. *groan* Oh, well, trial and error. I've gotten to the point that I'm just throwing my hands in the air. I don't know everything and I haven't gotten enough time in the room to get it all down. *shrugs* If I screw up, Work Brian will tell me. And I'll go from there. 

But until then, I'm Christmas shopping online with my little prepaid Visa. Methinks the women in my family might be getting Lush this year. And Anissa, if you read this, this may or may not include you. :) And it's back to work on next week's chapter. The fun of the future begins there. Expect to laugh.
