5 Gifs That Describe The Horror Of Working On Black Friday

When they tell you what ungodly time of day you'll have to arrive at the store:

Please, who the hell wants to go to JC Penney at 3:30 A.M. ? That's right NOBODY. NOBODY.
Nobody will be there except you. You and your sad, sad co-workers.

When your manager says it's 10 minutes until open and you can hear the shoppers lining up:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. There is no greater feeling of terror.

When the doors actually open:

I'm not sure if pointing and running away will help your cause. It might actually get you fired, but still. I bet you wish you were in bed right now, and not guarding yourself on a sales floor.

When your manager catches you trying to take your lunch break during a huge rush:

Whaat. You can see me? Oh...shit.

When you watch someone screw up a display you have been working on for the past 25 minutes.


When you watch someone attempt to use a coupon that is CLEARLY expired:

GET OUT. Just get out of the store and never come back.

When you're about to walk out of the store at the end of your shift and someone asks you a question:

Not my problem anymore. I've been here since 4:30. Goodbye now.
Thank goodness I never worked retail during the holidays.

Omg, lmao the rush to get everything set up before people come in. That was serious stress when I was working at Starbucks. I had to fill four brewers of coffee plus set up all the pastries for the day. Those gingerbread loaf cakes don't stack themselves!
