I'll be feasting at the casino when you get off work :allyoucaneatbuffet:
We're open til 5, and then we have to clean up from all the lovely customers that don't realize you don't have to knock over a whole pile to get the shirt in the middle, or just abandon clothes wherever they're standing, etc...At like 4:55 a few doors might get locked and the music might get turned WAY up and then off.

Edited to fix a smiley and to mention that people will be shaking our locked doors until we're gone, yelling at us that the mall is still open...and I will just roll my eyes at them!

I have all of my wrapping done and I even had my mom make a couple of her famous crinkle bows for a couple of gifts since the bows travel well.

You would think the long-day-ness would make the fact that I am working stick out in their minds...but not so much.

I am sleepy and I think I'm getting a headache.

I'll be back in about an hour...have to make sure I have everything together for Christmas since I'm working a long day...

Bows that travel well! I procrastinated on gifts that will be traveling...but I know what it's all going to be.

When the power was still out was trying to figure out what I would do to pass time when it was dark out in the event I wasnt sleepy when it dawned on me that I could take out my "reading light" and read in bed!

I like to pretend I'm Abraham Lincoln or something and read by candlelight when the power goes out. ork:

I forgot to mention that shopping with Dad was successful and we stumbled into good stuff! I didn't even have to do much thinking! We also stumbled into my co-captain from my skating team...that was cool. I don't think a father and daughter have ever yelled, "Sue-EEEEEEEEEEEE!" across a Gap ever before.

Lucky you!!

It's way more obvious if the music is REALLY loud for a minute before it goes off.

I am all about the customer...when it's not holiday party time.
