It wasn’t nearly as busy at work as I thought it would be. One of my restaurants sites at the edge of the Wal-Mart parking lot and we are generally pretty busy on Black Friday so I was expecting to be extremely busy. It started at around 5am and we were busy until around 7:30, then it died for a couple of hours and got busy again, but nothing like I thought it would. Even the Wal-Mart parking lot wasn’t as full as I had seen it in years past. As far as I am concerned that’s a darn good thing.
We did around the same amount of business as last year but I was actually hoping for a bit more since I am a better operator than the last guy that was there. I ended up leaving around noon and going back down to the store where I have no manager so that I could get some work caught up there and shoot out early.
Some of the malls and stores around the country opened at midnight and one to catch the early shoppers. Check out these fools as they rush the mall in Mesquite, Texas at one this morning.
The police look like they are thinking ‘fuck this noise’. I don’t blame them a bit. That stuff is what the Internet is for.
I did manage to get out at a decent time and have already gotten home and set up the Christmas tree. I will leave it to the kids to decorate tonight as I think I am going to lie down and take a nap soon. Unfortunately I have to be back tonight at 9pm and am pretty darned tired.
