I hate it.
I've tried all day to have a brighter, better attitude about the upcoming event, but I can't. I hate it.
I know it's great for some people, but this person would rather pay more or go without than to brave the crowd brought on by this sale day. I don't even love shopping. I don't mind it when I can spend money- but when that's the case, I don't care about a sale. That's just how irresponsible I am I guess.
There is nothing worse in my mind than people fighting over something, or competitively guarding their finds. My competitive personality comes out and I find myself loathing others I don't even know.
Which is the conundrum. I've got to change my attitude by tomorrow. I have to be at work at 7am so I can deal with our share of early birds. It's that yearly obligation that makes it hard to love my job as much as I usually do. People can be quite interesting during a sale. This will make my 11th Black Friday at work. Eleven years and I've dreaded this day every time it comes around. I'll be doing my best to change the attitude as I sleep tonight...wish me luck.
If you are a brave shopper...I'm wishing you luck as well. After seeing what I saw tonight- the parking lot at WalMart COMPLETELY full- I don't envy anyone- nor do I envy the deal they may be getting. Good luck, and may the force be with you...
Brett and I go to Hawaii!
