I worked both those days at the Chevron. We weren’t any busier than usual, but that didn’t stop these huge shopping days from effecting us.
When everybody and their mother-in-law’s second cousin are using their credit cards at the same time, it sure slows things down. Do you know how long 45 seconds seems when you have a customer standing there watching you watch the cash register and all it’s saying is “PLEASE WAIT”? A long time.
