As you all know I worked Black Friday at Best Buy. I had a 10 hour shift and I was pretty nervous because I’ve had absolutely no training. I walked into it wondering what I was going to do and at first I figured I was just being thrown to the wolves. And while at times I felt like a fish out of water, by the end of the very long day I felt like I was getting the hang of things. I will say that Best Buy was not nearly as bad as when I worked Black Friday at Caribou last year. By the time I arrived at 11 the craziness had worn off and while we did some really great sales it was never just me and one coworker against a line going out the door. Sorry Best Buy, you are no Black Friday Caribou!
I also worked on Saturday. A six hour shift was a piece of cake after the 10 hour one I’d worked. I did have a few customers that weren’t exactly nice to me. I mean, what do you expect, I’m new, I don’t know everything! But for the most part I felt relatively comfortable and the day went by fast! I’m looking forward to getting a little more training so that I have the knowledge to back up what I’m talking about!
I had Sunday off, thank goodness. It was pretty much filled with pumpkin pie and wine. Not a bad combo, right? I spend Sunday morning and afternoon working on blog things while Dustin and my brother watched football.
After Ryan left we decided to break out the few Christmas decorations we have. Going from our apartment to the house has been quite a change and we’re realizing that we’re going to need to invest in some more decorations! Hopefully soon. But here are some pics from last night’s decorating:
