Today, it’s Canadian Boxing Day, and for some it’s the day to get up early [4 am] and shop till you drop.
If you work retail, and have this day off, like I do, it’s simply the most wonderful day of the year. [Next to Christmas].
With the Christmas rush winding down, a kinder gentler day is dawning for us today.
For the first time we can actually relax, and enjoy ourselves, take a deep breath, and say “it’s almost over.”
If you have never, or you don’t work retail, then please, be kinder then normally to the service staff, they completely deserve it. They have been above board in pushing themselves to give you a wonderful shopping experience this year. Working long hours, being on their feet all day long, and striving to be polite in every instance.
And for those of you who have to work this retail shopping day, my heart goes out to you, and I hope that soon, you too have a “most wonderful day of the year.”
