Haiku Friday - Black Friday Madness

Haiku Friday

Stuck at work today
At least I don't work retail
I've been there, done that

No crazy women
Busting the door down for fleece
Fabric line so long

I don't miss Joann's
On Black Friday, man it sucked
Office work, better.

I was thinking this morning about how I used to work retail about 3 years ago on Black Friday. I don't ever want to have to do that again, even at Joann Fabrics the people were insane, fighting over fabric, breaking the door down (literally, they took it off the track to get inside), and just being all around nuts. I always did the 5am till noon shift, just so I could get the hell of that day over with early.

But this year I have a good old office job and I don't have to worry about people like that. Hardly anyone is here today, I have a throbbing headache, which I am praying will go away soon and I am going to try to leave early. Someone brought Panera bagels for everyone so that was nice. Now I don't have to go get lunch!

Also - next week is crazy for me. I am going to Cleveland (again) for work Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday I have a Dr. appointment late in the afternoon and then Saturday is my best friends son's first birthday!

Well I guess I should try to do something productive - after I have some more coffee!

Are you not going shopping?! Argghhh...the crowd can be quite annoying no?! I also shy away from sales sometimes, too much crowd can kill me! LOL

Happy Friday!

Love the idea of blogging in Haiku, yours made me chuckle. :)

Yup - working retail on Black Friday must be awful! Sorry you had to work the day after Thanksgiving, but you seemed to make it okay for yourself with coffee and blogging ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I had to work Thanksgiving in the hospital for many years, I'm guessing retail is much worse.

I definitely didn't miss working at Kohl's on Black Friday this year. Or last year. But this year my in-laws' Thanksgiving was on Friday, so we got to do both families' dinners with plenty of time to be with everyone.
