I will say nothing of greed, or commercialism, or how my stomach got all tied up in knots just thinking about dealing with these people on this day.
I will just say thanks for the friend who texted to let me know she was thinking and praying for my Black Friday in retail, not knowing I was hauling an overnight shift. (I didn’t tell many people because I didn’t want to complain, and I don’t know how to talk about something like that without complaining). Her text came right as I was leaving my house to go to work.
I will just say thanks for a part-time job. A much-needed job while I continue looking for a full-time job.
I will just say thanks that people were mostly nice, mostly not argumentative about things I have no control over.
I will just say thanks that it went by quickly.
And I will say thanks that I have the next few days off to spend with my family because I still have training I need to complete before I’m a full-fledged employee.
Now, I’m going to try and get a few hours of sleep. 🙂
