A little about black friday.
It’s the day after Thanksgiving, the Friday when all the stores offer huge irresistible bargains to those who get there early. They also have many other great deals all day long.
It’s meant to get the stores earnings out of the red (a financial loss) if thats where they are and get them into the black, a financial gain in profits for the holiday shopping season.
Thats black friday! Not black any other day. So what about the stores that will open on Thanksgiving day? They are stoping the employees who have to work, from enjoying a day off with their families. Whether the stores can open or not should be left to their employees and it should be on a volunteer basis only. If they can get enough workers to volunteer to come in, then they can open, plain and simple. That way they might open and without looking like they place greed and profits, over family values and togetherness.
As for the shoppers, it’s their call whether to shop or not. That would be strictly up to them.
As for me, during that period of shopping on Thanksgiving Day,, I’d rather be watching football, playing games with the kids, cards with uncle Joe (you got to watch him, he cheats), raiding the fridge for leftovers, extra desert and doing it all comfortably at home in my sox! Besides, we all know that the stuffing only lasts a day and thats it!
You see, we work our asses off, for a whole year, for what we have and earn and I’m not giving up a day with family and friends that’s meant to enjoy what we already have, to go shopping! Deal or No Deal!
Now kids, I’ll pick suitcase 2 and 10,.! DAD YOU CAN ONLY GET TO PICK ONE! THATS CHEATING!
Hey, I got to try to beat those kids somehow, THEY ALWAYS WIN!
Besides, Uncle Joe is proud! But he is the Banker! LOL.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYBODY!
