November is flying by before our eyes, and anyone who's experienced enough holiday seasons knows that the final weeks of 2017 will pass even more quickly. I'm still having trouble processing the fact that Black Friday is happening in just one week, and Boxing Day is just a month away.
Admittedly, the holidays can be a very stressful time. You need to work extra hours to ensure that you have the money to treat your loved ones with the gifts they deserve, the weather can be mentally draining, final papers and exams are happening, and on top of all that, you need to find time in your already busy schedule to make it to the mall and get your shopping done.
Any seasoned holiday shopper knows that the mall is absolute hell this time of year. Be prepared for angry shoppers, long lineups, holiday return policies, kids screaming to see Santa, and frustrated retail employees. As a frustrated retail employee myself, I can honestly say that your holiday mall experience will only be as miserable as you let it be. If you are patient, friendly, and attentive, I can promise you that your Black Friday and Boxing Day experiences will be a breeze.
