Hide In A Cave Weekend

I worked Black Friday at Forever 21 for my third time. It’s funny because my first day of work at Forever 21 was on Black Friday my junior year of high school and because of that it is easy for me to keep track of my anniversaries of working there. This Black Friday I worked from 5AM to 3 PM. While this may seem crazy to some people we always get 10 hour shifts on Black Friday so most of us are used to it.

My shift was not that bad, I was in the shift where the midnight shoppers were going to sleep and the normal shoppers were finally getting up. Although I heard at midnight that we had insane lines, people banging on our gates to come in early, and all other crazy shenanigans. I understand that there may be deals but at Forever 21 I feel like you are always getting a deal so I really don’t understand the commotion of being there. I will say though that I never felt like we were super busy, until I counted my drawer at the end of the day and realized I had over $14000 in my drawer alone, so I guess we were busy.

Black Friday to me was not that bad. What killed me was the next day. After working Black Friday I went straight downtown with my friends Catrina and Bethany to see the Circle of Lights, which is a tree lighting that downtown Indianapolis does to our Monument Circle.

I got back home and fell asleep right away. The next day (Saturday) I had to work from 11-7 which typically wouldn’t be bad, but I think I overslept from the exhaustion of Friday that Saturday my body felt even worse. I was in such a bad mood, so I feel really bad for the customers that talked to, because I probably seemed completely out of it and uninterested, which typically is not me.

Thankfully I’m back at Butler now, so it’s back to the usual of studying and learning, but I’m starting to realize that I’d rather do that than work any Black Friday.

    I think all this Black Friday deal, it’s just a marketing campaign from big companies. This should be the real price of products, not the regular price.
