worse than black friday
I decided to google the number one thing I heard today at work, and find an image I liked to post for today. I was not disappointed.
While not first on the list, it didn't take much scrolling for me to come across this gem when I searched for, "discount?".
Incidentally, that's the exact expression/gesture I made to my coworkers which meant, "I am going to need a drink after this".
It was seriously crazy, in an often terrifying way. Mostly just crazy bargain hunters though, with no regard for the merchandise they were looking at.
There were a few familiar faces though, like the two women who come (no joke) at least 5 days a week and try on the exact same things, always in a size too small, and then leave empty handed. I was telling Jon about them and he came up with, "well maybe they're getting gastric by-pass surgery and trying on your clothes is their way of gauging their progress".
So now I feel bad and they are kind of endearing to me, as long as I go along with Jon's theory, which he followed up with, "or maybe they have that thing from 50 first dates."
After a day like today, I'd say anything is possible.
The good news is that I made it out unscathed and even took care of some important life chores this evening. And tomorrow I work a mid-shift so it should be easy breezy beautiful.
Keep your fingers crossed for me.
