Day Two Hundred Ninety-Eight (Aka: Best Work Day Ever)
I Am Clever

Had a 4-hour shift today, and I basically spent 75% of it making these:

Our store carries a product called Rainbow Loom, which is basically a tool that lets you weave small elastic bands together into bracelets.  We're hoping to be able to possibly do in-store demos/tutorials on how to use it for customers, as it's on of the existing stores' biggest sellers.  Therefore, as most of us have never used one before, we got to spend time practicing with it and making our own bracelets. It was a whole lot of fun.


For the remainder of the time, that was divided equally between POS training and feeling guilty every time one of our managers had to send potential customers away (we're waiting on a business license, but for all intents and purposes, our store LOOKS open, so people kept trying to come in). So many of them had little kids with them, who all looked so disappointed every time they were told they couldn't come in. We all agreed that it looked bad on us and we felt horrible.  Unfortunately, what can you do? :/ I mean, we apologized to them all, and told them when we were planning to be open by, but still.


Either way, though, I have not heard otherwise from my managers, so I can only assume that we got the license and are good to go.  Huzzah for the first day of an open store tomorrow.
