Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone and now we are heading into the holiday season yet again. Sorry I haven’t really been here in a while, but as you can tell, I have been really busy lately, especially with Thanksgiving and Black Friday at work among other things. I was originally planning to do a video of Black Friday so you can see what it is really like there. But this year, it was about twice as bad as before and I couldn’t really find a good-enough hiding spot to get some good shots. Oh, well, maybe next year. At least I managed to get some Black Friday DVD’s in the meantime.
And speaking of Arthur, I entered him in the Telegram’s Pet of the Year contest and he didn’t even make the final cut. I couldn’t believe it. Oh, well, I can always show him off on YouTube.
I only got about three hours of sleep Thanksgiving morning because I had to run out and get rid of some bottles so I can buy a small bag of cat food. When I got to Hannaford, I noticed that their bottle machines were all turned off. So I had to literally run from one end of Herkimer to the other. So I got rid of my bottles at Wal-Mart and then went to Dollar General to get cat food. Cat food has gotten expensive at both Wal-Mart and Hannaford so I’ve been buying the cat food at Dollar General lately.
Traditionally, I have three Thanksgiving dinners. I had one last weekend at my place with my brother-in-law’s kids; then this year I went to my folks’ house before going to work and I also had Thanksgiving dinner at work on lunch break which meant that I didn’t go home as I usually do on lunch.
And of course the mayhem that was Black Friday. This year, I wasn’t in electronics as usual, but I ended up in the other major trouble spot on Black Friday: toys. I was basically surrounded on all sides by customers waiting at any minute to try and raid the pallets and take the items before 5 am. At least I held the line and actually they started tearing the items up before I could even cut the plastic off. As far as I know, no one in my store was hurt, but I was reading in the news this morning that one Wally World employee in Long Island was trampled to death by a stampede of customers. And that’s all I gotta say about that, except that Black Friday can be a very dangerous time to be in the retail business.
As far as this weekend goes, I am probably going to go to the Historical Society to get back to work on my book and I have some more videos planned, including a collab with another big name on YouTube. I also have to do another five facts video because I was tagged again by another YouTuber, and this one will be the last five facts video I will do, even though I may do one with Arthur on my other channel. So stay tuned for that. Okay, gotta go have some breakfast now.
