Uhhuh! I’ve let it be known about a dozen times that I’m not very happy. I work for the corporate office of a popular retail chain so I need to be here as support for the stores. My phone hasn’t rung once. The stores don’t have time to call us so our being here is useless. I’m so jealous of everyone who’s at home relaxing or out shopping wanting to rip their hair out. Damn you, corporate America!

Yup… no e-mails, no phone calls… just sitting here on WB.

Thankfully it’s a short day and I’ll be out by 2, but still, I want to be home curled up on the couch with Fiance watching TV, not in this empty office!

@hilsy85: Fi is home from work today, but has to work all day tomorrow. πŸ™

Oh well, at least my fam & sister are in town so I can spend the day with them while he’s working.

I’m at work (in Ireland) and it’s SO quiet on the internet – WB is so quiet, Facebook is so quiet, even my Google Reader is dead…all my friends and family at home are in Thanksgiving recovery mode.

Luckily I’ve only got about 40 minutes to go – HURRY!!!

I’m working 10 – 7 today and soooo don’t want to be here.  I went out shopping at midnight, caught a few hours of sleep, then back to the stores at 8 am & here by 10.   I’m sooooooooooo tired, the phones are not ringing, and there’s less than 1/2 staff here, so no one to even chat with!   Thankful for WB!  Laughing

I am in the same boat. My usual start time is at 5a. There were quite a bit of cars on the road at 4ish because of Black Friday. I’d rather be shopping. =( I guess I have to settle for online shopping at work.
