Weather, Holidays

I’m tired.

I’ve been working later and later hours, culminating tonight in a 3 pm to midnight shift. The mall closes at 11 pm tonight. Seriously, who needs to be shopping that late?? I’m also ready to be DONE with Christmas music. It’s too bad, really, because I usually really like Christmas music. But after having to listen to it for 35-40 hours a week for the last three weeks… I’m done. Suzy Snowflake can drop dead, I hope Frosty melts, and I don’t wish ANYONE a merry Christmas.

Okay, that’s an exaggeration. It is, however, a form of torture to listen to the same Christmas soundtrack over and over and over. It’s like being stuck in some bad Christmas nightmare that never ends. I’m also having to restrain myself from punching my clients. Some teenage-looking girl gave me lip yesterday because I didn’t know where the Coach store was. She said something (in a whiny voice) about her feet hurting, and she was tired, and just wanted to be done! It was all I could do to keep from stabbing her with a makeup brush. I mean, HER feet hurt? Okay sweetie, IT’S ON. In my fantasy world I take her out with a swift kick to the head.

In my ninja kung fu fantasy world I also take out clients for getting bitchy because we’re out of stock on what they were looking for (like that’s MY fault? Do your shopping earlier, dumbass!), for giving me sass because they had to wait in the checkout line for five or more minutes (see above, dumbass!), and for being rude (so much for peace, love, goodwill and all that. Apparently it doesn’t apply to retail workers.)

Retail just sucks this time of year. Usually I like my job, but it’s hard because in the past I’ve loved the Christmas season. This year I just want it to be over. I’m in full-on Scrooge mode. I don’t even want to go shopping (I LOVE shopping!) because all the stores have Christmas music and I can’t deal with another minute of it when I’m not working. Insert picture of me stuck in some Munch-like Scream pose while Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer plays in the background… I’ve been listening to Depeche Mode and Soundgarden in the car just to cleanse my ears.

About the weather… we had no problems from the storm except for a power outage lasting about seven hours. I bought a hurricane lamp years ago, and finally got to use it.

I’m tired.
