So today I worked my very first black Friday in retail and it was not painful but not relaxing. My dad somehow convinced me to leave my house at 4am to be on the safe side for parking and traffic (note: I only live 40 minutes away from the mall). So I end up leaving closer to 4:30 because I suck, and the whole time driving I was freaking out and worried about getting a parking spot. I somehow managed to make my drive only 30 minutes and ended up sitting in my car for 40 minutes until I realized how bored I was. 6am rolls around and every single person and their mom was in that store to annoy me. The amount of people that said “I’m sorry you are working”, made me want to choke myself with a pair of jeans. Moral of the story I hate black Friday and people.
