Seriously I am pooped.
And I think I am getting too old to deal with this Black Friday / Christmas nonsense.
As I have mentioned, maybe without mentioning, I work in Women's Specialty Apparel Retail.
For a company with over 600 stores nationwide.
And some in Dubai to boot.
Well, the company decided to run a "Black Friday" promo to reel the customers in.
And reel them in they did.
I spent almost 13 hours yesterday providing crowd control.
Pushing goods to the floor and keeping the register lines organized and expedited.
Oh, and I did it again today too.
Now as I soak my feet in Epsom Salt and drink wine, I wonder:
"Am I getting too old for this crap?"
There was no time for cute outfits, in fact, we have a "dress code" of sorts for holiday.
And I do not love it.
Our dress code is sweaters.
That we sell.
And even though I jazzed mine up with a skinny zebra belt, it is still not something I would bother photographing.
Besides the fact that getting dressed in said outfits at 3 and 4 am does not make me want to take photos either.
Yes, I adore fashion.
And yes, I love working in this business.
And yes, this weekend has seriously kicked my ass.
