I am just about fed up with all of the hype about Black Friday.
What about Thanksgiving?
Do we just forget Thanksgiving and go shopping? Some workers can only afford to take two holidays off a year. Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. How would you like your holiday time cut in half?
Think about it.
I know it's nice to have a job, but someone has to pull those early hour shifts. I know they offer overtime and extra pay.
But enough is enough. Stop pushing shopping on Black Friday.
I went shopping once on Black Friday, back in the 70's, before it was officially called Black Friday. Didn't find anything spectacular, didn't find a parking space. Long lines, frazzeled clerks, grumpy shoppers.
Count me out.
I choose to spend the time with my family.
