2 hours, 60 cartons and a ruined sweaty cashmere sweater later, I was able to haul 1200 lbs of eyewear packaging off of splintery skids and into my storage locker. Oh the glamour of having to do everything by yourself! Given that I was clearly not equipped or dressed to be doing manual labour this morning, I was shocked that I got through it without severely injuring myself.
Despite the aches of the day, nothing beats the elated feeling of seeing freshly packed shiny white boxes. They were screaming for sunglasses to fill them! Seriously, it was deafening.
