{Black Friday}

How was your BF? Did you go out and shop? Did you wait in line somewhere for hours for a crappy tv? lol. I worked. For those of you that may not know, I work security at Target. My store didn't open until 1AM due to some old Blue Laws on the book in my state so I reported to work at 12:01 AM.

I worked the line outside and gave them all the rules and whatnot. It's called Crowd Control. Every single Target store has to put a very detailed plan in place about how they are going to keep everyone safe. We do not want incidents like that other big box retailer. Eh hem. We really do put everyone's safety over the sales. In fact, if you're acting unsafe, you leave and do not purchase whatever you came in for. Period.

My team got 567 people into the building safely at opening without a single incident. So with all these BF horror stories, please know that it is in fact safe to shop at some stores. I don't know why you'd want to wait in line in the freezing cold for ten plus hours to save a couple of hundred bucks on a tv, but so be it. ;)

Another successful Black Friday crowd control in the books.  #retaillife #target #blackfriday

P.S. I did make it through all of nablopomo. I definitely cheated a bit and back scheduled things, but the point is I wrote something for everyday in November. I'm hoping this will get me back into my blogging groove.

  1. I wish more states had that law. Being open while some are just finishing Thanksgiving dinner is nuts. Glad all went well and nothing scary crazy happened like at some other stores.
