This happens everewhere I've ever done retail but that doesn't make it easier. we went to the store for a few minutes to call our family and I got 4 phone calls asking when we were going to open, and when we were going to close. Are these people calling the Hamlet? Are they calling the school and the daycare with the same questions, I think not. But because your in retail people think you should be there and the store should be open whenever they want something. I challenged one of the callers "Are you at work? No, well niether are we. Its Christmas." It still stuns me, Its happened everywhere I've been but somehow it seems more absurd up here. The store has never been open at Christmas, never open Boxing day. In a town with two stores, It shouldn't be that hard to keep track of, neither is open for 2 days. Ok, I'm done and I'm glad we don't have phone yet, because they would be phoning my home.
Have fun, and don't call you local store
