It's almost 2:00 am and I am just about wound down from work. I can't believe it's Thanksgiving week. The store is already going insane with the amount of people shopping. And it has just started. We expect a lot more in the next few days. I have to work until midnight on Wednesday. Just thinking of it makes my lower back ache. To be honest, ever since I started retail, I have grown to dislike the holidays. They certainly are no fun for many of us who work in retail. And anyone who says they love it is drugged out and lying.
But despite my disdain for this time of year, I am thankful for many things. I'm thankful for the fact that the store leadership feeds us some really good food to show their appreciation for our hard work. They even have massage therapists on hand to give us rub downs if we want. And the Bodycare department gives us facials to ease our tension. BUT, I am especially thankful for my ability to sass a customer without it coming across as attitude. I think it has something to do with the fact that they can't believe some Asian guy is capable of such behavior. For that I am so grateful. Later.
