November is usually a month where people are saying what they are thankful for. I am thankful for so much, don’t get me wrong. But the holidays also bring things that I am just not looking forward to. Especially working in retail… You know what I’m saying?
Here we go…
~ Christmas shoppers who are grumpy because they have been out all day with family and it has not been a pleasant experience. Spread some joy and love! Also, don’t do all of your Christmas shopping on one day! Spread it out!
~ The long hours working retail during the holidays. Oh man, it is exhausting. I am a girl who absolutely loves Christmas. I am seriously a young child every year around this time. Everything fascinates me, the colors, the lights, the smells, I love it! Working retail can really take that out of you.
~ Driving in the snow. I will admit, I have gotten better but I am still not great. It still scares the living daylights out of me. When you start sliding… oh man there goes my blood pressure just thinking about it.
~ Denver drivers in the snow. With the amount of transplants that Denver has, not everyone has come from a state where they had to drive in the snow. They just do not know how to do so half the time. Scares me and drives me crazy!
~ Not being close to family for the holidays. I am such a sap. I love having family close by for the holidays. I love waking up to the smell of waffles, cinnamon gravy and bacon. (And coffee of course) I love coming into the living room and sharing presents with everyone. It always makes me so sad to not be close to family. It is just so dang hard to get time of for Christmas or Thanksgiving when you work retail.
