Ok, I have left my loyal reader hanging long enough. It's about time that I updated my blog. So this week was chock full of excitement. First, as you all know, Thursday was Thanksgiving. That also means that Friday was the evil Black Friday. Ok, so this year it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. It was still busy. Fortunately for me it was busier in the morning. I was one of the lucky few who closed both Friday and Saturday, so I didn't have to go into work until 2:30pm. By the time I got there, it was a steady busy but not hectic busy and by the time I got back from break at 7pm, the store was pretty much dead. I think the fact that B&N doesn't have any doorbuster specials that most of our customers were mostly there for the coffee. But I'm not worry. The closer we get to Christmas the busier it will be for us. So, yeah Friday wasn't too bad.
But what I really loved about this weekend was my co-workers. I really love the people I work with. They really are a bunch of fun people to hang out with at or outside of work. And best of all they love to go out drinking! Friday, a few of us who closed went to Old Chicago and then on Saturday we went to Charley's. You almost always count on someone wanting to go out after work. Even if someone didn't close with us, they would meet us somewhere. Ok, really this isn't anything new. We've been going out after work for awhile. First it was once a week for book club and then it was a couple times a week to play pool. Now it's basically every weekend and some week days. All I can say is that Jeremy is amazing! I don't know how many pitchers we had but he paid for it all. I tried to give him money but he wouldn't let me. That Jeremy, is such a nice guy.
It makes me so happy that I enjoy going to work. This summer the store really sucked. We had a manager who wasn't really a manager. Ok, really he never was much of one when he was the manager but the uncertainty of who was going to be the new manager just brought the whole store down. Now that is all settle the store as a whole has been in a better mood. Even our ASM Tony has been a good mood. Now that's saying something!
Ok, so I've rambled on long enough. I really should start planning these entries out. Then they might flow better but oh well, next time.
