Merry Buttmas

“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.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
