“Dammit, Beavis! You look stupid. Like more than usual and stuff. This Christmas thing is stupid. Uh huh huh huh huh huh.”
According to one of my co-workers, we had a grand total of 22,000 people walking through our doors last week. Now, that sounds pretty damned impressive but he brought up a good point: most of these members come in as a group. So we probably had double the amount of members in the building than what our counts claimed, if not more. Last week was crazy and that’s putting it gently.
Today wasn’t so awful. Steady, but not overwhelming. We’re getting a bit of a cut in hours now; it’s understandable as we’re heading into a slower season. The start of the new year is always slow in retail. I remember that from my days at Wal-Mart. So many January mornings, standing at the registers, bored out of my mind. It wasn’t fun and I don’t miss that crap at all.
I’m off tomorrow. With pay. Just like I’ll be off New Year’s day, with pay. I still have difficulty believing it. The only day Wal-Mart ever shut down was Christmas, and it seems that isn’t a guarantee everywhere. There are Wal-Marts that stay open on Christmas day; I’ve read the Facebook posts.
As for tomorrow, it’s going to be fun. I’m not going to go into details, but I will be having a blast. Just trust me on that.
