Do you have to work Black Friday?

I do, but would love to have it off!

  • Nope. We are having Thanksgiving at my mom's house, then driving 5.5 hours to a cabin to spend the weekend with my inlaws. WooHOO! We are staying away from the shopping!

  • No. My husband will disappear on Thursday and not return until breakfast time Friday. Then DD has a driving lesson a little later so no sleep for him. The only plus side is time and a half. Have fun!!! Save me a bargain item.

  • I used to when I worked retail (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth haha). So glad I don't have to do that anymore.

    I'll think good thoughts for everyone who does have to work.

    And, no, I won't be out there contributing to your troubles. I dislike Black Friday very much.

  • Thankfully, my firm is closed Thurs & Friday. Woot! Although, any shopping will be online. People freak me the fuck out. Especially when they have excited, crazy eyes.

  • I don't work, but I always worked that day when I worked retail. I actually didn't mind it that much. The work day went really fast. I hated the mess that was left behind though.

  • Technically, yes. I'm a stay home mom, so I work 24/7/365.
