Hell week by the numbers

We did it! Hell week is in the bag so to speak. Hell week is our term for this week, not our employers. We work for the largest on-line retailer so hell week starts with black Friday. It then goes through a long holiday weekend and through cyber Monday. So with out further adeau.


Apparently both of our step counters said "To hell with this" and committed suicide the same week. Cheap Wal-mart crap. Should have shopped Amazon I guess.

What I do know is that we worked 55 hours starting Friday. I know, crazy. But now I remember why we quit the working world. It sucks. Black Friday is history along with Cyber Monday. It was more hype than anything. It seemed like any other day to us, and the only perk we got out of it was that we each received a 5 dollar Kroger card(Kroger is the local grocery store) for working 11 hours on a day we already planned to work. Cha-ching!

22 days and a wake up!

This reminds me of a saying from one of my all time favorite movies. That is "The Outlaw Josey Wales". Starring one of my all time hero's, Clint Eastwood. That saying is this-

"Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining" How fitting.

Guys are probably remembering that now and girls are like "what???" Because it really isn't a chick flick although Clint was in "The Bridges of Madison County".

Oh, and some more numbers. We have 24 hours off till we go back again and there are 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.


  1. Well dang! I only read this to get the numbers. Now I have to read someone elses Hell Week blog! All I can say is hell no....three weeks in Fernly was enough for me! Hope you have enough beer to see you through!

    1. You can't waste beer around here. The closest beer store is 20 miles away. This is a dry county.

  2. All I can say is I'm officially an Amazombie now, and we only did one 11 hour day :)

  3. Watch out for the Missouri Boat Ride on your way home!

  4. Glad you survived hell week!! Love your candor and humor!!
