    Mrs. Clean is on her own.
    If you ever went shopping with her, you would say the same!

I am now in full protest mode and unless I get to go to MY "toy store", with her girlfriends, and look at (read: BUY) the RRA I've been coveting...........

    Won't catch me anywhere near stores or the mall on that day <shudder>

    Lucky for me with my relatively elastic scheduling re work - I'll be looking for the odd trinkets middle of a week and before the post school commute - usually a moderately civilized time of day

    Most of time these days - I am house-bound, from choice Maybe a warmer day tho will see the bike comin out and a quick blast into town - good excuse then!

    Yea, I got to work retail that day too, I will basically stay in the back, so I don't get stampeded as we open the doors. We should hire backwater or one of those companies to open the doors that morning, its scary from our end.

    Last year, I didn't realize the time, thinking we weren't open yet, and I was walking down one of the isles and I got pushed into a shelf as the mob ran into electronics, good thing I have a good holster, eh....... I probably looked like deer in the headlights as I rounded the corner and saw the mob running at me.

    I'm working on Black Friday.. that's worse. To be honest. I'd rather be in mobs of people, my feet hurting, my arms sore from carrying crap and my throat burning from dehydration than working the day after Thanksgiving, but it is what it is, isn't it?

    I would rather be on my couch, reading a book, eating left overs (Left overs of what, I'm not quite sure, but I'm sure they'd be good and better than shopping OR work).

    Sigh... we all have to do what we have to do.

    I am glad that we live so far back in the woods that they have to pump daylight to us and that means that we will NOT be anywhere near a store or a crowd of people! Nothing but peace and quiet out here! Life is good!
