(And Omicron... The hell does this word actually mean anyway?)

Sorry, wrong word.  I fixed my post.  It bothered me after I typed it as I didn't think that was correct.  I think I had the COVID on my mind.

I got my Secret Santa package today and among the Steam and Sony gift cards, I got a TON of candy!  And it was sent by another Greg!

Many thanks to my Secret Santa (who I hope will revel themselves at some point!)

Not shown is a 1981 Atari Catalogue which was a nice touch.  Reminds me of the one I had as a kid with the system.

Great haul SoulBlazer! As was mine that was waiting for me when I got home from work. My GF already stole the candy. :) I love all of it. The action figures are already on my toy shelves in my man cave. And I have some reading material for the winter and new games. Thanks to my Secret Santa.

Holy hell in a Mariah Carey hand basket.... how many of us here work retail?

Thankfully I have finally retired from retail (at least for now), but I have put in...roughly 30 years in the "field" in total between video store clerking, Target, Best Buy, Electronics Boutique, and running my own shop for 7 years.  You'll not find a kinder, easier to deal with customer in a retail setting than one who's been there and done that. :)

I work two retail jobs! Secret Santa is one of the few bright spots in the unholy horror that is December! 😅

Yay! I'm glad we're seeing presents arrive and be opened!

 

I still have a few people who have yet to send their packages (at least, they haven't let me know they've been sent yet). I'll start following up with some of you later this week.

 

Happy holidays, everyone!

As a father of four kids that feels like a threat in some way.

Ah yes I remember that well... But now I'm "Gaampa!" and it's so much fun. :)

It’s still pretty fun, but it’s also very stressful.

It finally seems like I’ll be able to ship mine out today, I’m very happy about that!

I love seeing what people got from their A.A.S.S!!

Doing this really feels like being a kid again doesn't it?

I read this too fast as "I love seeing what people got from their A.S.S." and was incredibly worried where on the Internet I'd ended up.
