OMG You guys...you have no idea what I've been through today! As most of you know I work for Walmart & I have NEVER seen such a frenzy in my life! Our store never closes (except for Christmas day) & people were coming in the store at 2 this morning waiting for the sales. It's crazy...they sleep in the aisles & guard the items like they own it already.
I watched a pretty cool fight this morning at 6. We only had one pallet of Care Bear dolls & people were going nuts over them. Women were pulling each others hair & one gal walked away with scratches up her arm. All over a $10 carebear!
The rest of the day I was parked behind a desk filling out hundreds of rainchecks. My hand still hurts from them all & we stopped doing them at 11:30. After that, we organized all the rainchecks & then started calling other stores in our district to send them to our store. It was just the wildest day I've ever worked! I checked our sales for the day at 2pm & we had already sold $501,000! In my old store, we thought we were having an awesome day if we sold $80,000 on the day after Thanksgiving!
I just can't help but wonder if I made a good move with this Management gig or not!
