Don't know if "happy" per se, but a little funny. (In a wtf kind of way.)

Spent much of my shift putting up the doorbuster signs for the Thanksgiving/Black Friday sales. It's almost amusing how much of retail is more about appearances and hype... (Such as a current sale with special hand written signs generated more traffic, despite the sales not really being much better than usual.)

We have some girls jeans, the cheaper ones in its brand, that are regularly just $9.99. They've been on sale for some days for only $4.99. The doorbuster price on the sign I put up today? $8.99. The hell? So any "lucky" people who didn't save five bucks in the past week can come and save $1 tomorrow on this "doorbuster"! Hmmm...

Some other things didn't even change price. Granted they were and are still 60% which is decent, but still. Other stuff did at least go down. People better like the darn bubble jackets this year. We're packed full of them, again and they're only $9 in this sale. (Regularly $60 for toddler up to $75 for plus size big kids.) Hope to see many of them gone!

After a long day of things not going according to plan, I'm finally able to put my feet up with a nice big plate of sushi and an alcoholic root beer.

I could get used to this.
