Nope…Rudolph was LAST year!

So, I’ve gone back to Build a Bear. This store is VERY different from the Ontario Mills store. It really is. There’s no sucking up to any manager so that you can stay past the holidays. They’re very even keel and they’re total crack ups. Kicker in all of this one is that it’s right across the hall from the evil store that has still refused to pay up. I even love the staff in this store more. Everyone is fun, nice and no one has any of the “superior” attitude like I saw lots of at the Mills.
This year’s animal (as you all have prolly seen in the commercials) is Frosty the Snowman. His cheeks light up and there’s all sorts of issues with that…because it’s a seperate battery pack that you can replace. But that’s not what’s funny. What’s funny is that I’ve had about 4 people come up to me and ask for Rudolph or Ukon Cornelius from LAST year. Nope. Out of those. Nope. Not going to get those back! SORRY! Troll Ebay if you have to…hehehe

Well, to make things even more hilarious, people are being dumb already. We had this woman come in who swore her frosty was defective. She drove all the way in from Duanesburg (30 minutes) just to find out that she wasn’t pushing the button on the hand to make sure that the snowman’s cheeks lit up! I’ve never seen someone SLINK out of a store that fast as red as she was. Hilarious.

I was a “Party bear” yesterday. Didn’t mind staying late to make sure this group had fun. I really enjoyed it. I had 12 5-6 year olds and they were so much fun. They were loud, silly and giggly…just what I needed after a full day. Putting the bears on our heads and jumping through the store was hilarious. I had people giggling at me…but I didn’t care. I have no shame. Childbirth will do that to you. Any shame you have goes o ut the window…so jumping through a store screaming ‘STUFF MY FRIEND” at the top of your lungs is really not an issue.

I think I have to work again Friday. Not sure. The schedule is in such flux, it’s hilarious. I came in trained, so they just tossed me on the floor. I’m now offically part of the “bear builder” crew. I get called at random times “can you come in???” and I usually do!
