Honestly.....I don't see why anybody cares!! If you work retail then you KNOW that stores have been opening earlier and earlier every year. So if you don't want to work on Thanksgiving then you had a whole year to find a different job.
And calling people who shop on Thanksgiving pathetic is ignorant. What about people who don't have family, or who's family sucks and aren't worth spending the day with? What about people who can't travel to see their family or even people that see their family every single day?? I didn't shop because I am pregnant and tired but I live in the same town as all my family. I see them constantly. Dinner yesterday was no different then many many family dinners we have throughout the year. We went to my parents from 1-4:30pm. Who cares what I do with the rest of the 21.5 hours in the day. (Dinner with my inlaws was today).
Sorry rant over. There were literally thousands and thousands of comments talking about how terrible it is.....I just don't get it! Don't like it? Don't shop!
