I am not sure how i am going to pass the time today.

The boss has his normal day off today, I get to work and the people here have picked up breakfast from a local cafe and are obviously looking forward to a day of slacking.

I think i will sip some coffee for about an hour and a half, then take a reallllllyyyyyy long lunch and what do you know, its time to go home and get ready for the holidays.

Dang, big problem with retirement, you never get a day off. Is it safe to go back in the stores Tuesday or should I wait until after the New Year?

NOT SAFE the day after Christmas . I think the 26th is the busiest shopping/return day of the year rivaling the day after Turkey day.

26 = a DEFINITE bad day to shop.

Hmmm. Weeks of killing myself here at work has apparently paid off. With a little elbow grease this morning I might actually be walking out the door before noon and not return til Tuesday morning.

And someone brought in biscuits and gravy for breakfast as well.

The 26th of Dec. is HORRIBLE in the stores!
When I worked retail I would volunteer to work Christmas Eve, whcih was usually dead, just so I could have off on the 26th.
I worked in the frame shop in a craft store, and got stuck working that day once. The seasonal Christmas stuff would be discounted, and when the shelves ran out we wouldn't restock them, we would just pull out boxes of the merchandise and people would take the stuff from the boxes while we were still carrying/pulling them to shelf.

Do not go the day after christmas unless you like getting bludgeoned in the ass. That is the feeling you will get messing with those crowds of people.

I too have positioned myself very nicely to get out of here around noon and not return until tuesday.

David_42, i was told by a retired friend of mine that he only knows what day it is by counting the days it has been since the big paper came(sunday). I would tell you to wait 4 days after the big paper comes to go to the stores.

I live 1.5 miles from one of the largest malls in America (Woodfield Mall). It's been BRUTAL trying to get home this week. My exit is the exit to the mall.

I too am taking off all of next week, and when I return I'm giving my 2 weeks notice. Talk about lack of motivation! At our department meeting yesterday I kept chuckling to myself... "That's not going to happen, and that's not going to happen" when projects were discussed.

I'm out until Jan 2nd.
We're driving up to Mass. to visit the inlaws next week. Looking forward to sampling some good NE microbrew.
Right now I think I'll do a "bird" and up my post count by replying to every thread on the board.
