So here it is Black Friday. Whoopee.
Black Friday or the day after Thanksgiving has always been the busiest shopping day of the year. Now the damn retailers have taken it to new heights. It is not enough they open at 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. or even earlier on Black Friday, now they open on Thanksgiving day. J.C. Penney opens at 2 p.m. What the hell are they thinking? Are people suppose to eat turkey for breakfast so they can get to Penney’s for the sale? In the case of Macy’s they opened at 5 p.m. Sears and Walmart opened at 6 p.m. along with others. https://www.dealnews.com/features/black-friday-store-hours/
So what are these assholes thinking.
Not only do they ruin the customer’s holiday i.e. Thanksgiving they really screw the employees. I am sure there are a few that don’t have plans or family and don’t mind but there are damn few of them I’ll bet.
I worked for an online retailer a few years ago that made us work Thanksgiving day, all day. There might have been 10 calls and what for the damn stores weren’t open and what could you possibly do for someone on Thanksgiving. Not only that what idiot calls you on Thanksgiving? Then they say “it is too bad you have to work.” We wouldn’t if you weren’t calling.
“Black Friday” is bad enough but now these retailers are backing up into Thanksgiving. Give it a damn rest. The problem is there are morons that will leave their families to go shopping. Then people complain about Christmas is too commercialized. Get real.
Then these same retailers use Black Friday all year long for promotions.
Yeah, that is going to make me rush out for a sale when they say Black Friday in July or August or October or whenever the hell they say. I don’t go out EVER on the day after Thanksgiving even for bread or milk or anything else. Screw that.
Then there are the morons that go shopping.
Some go out there and actually get in fights over merchandise. WTF is wrong with you people? Here we have a mall in Houston where one shopper is stabbed and one is shot. Was it worth it? This is the same Houston that was devastated and wiped out by a hurricane just months ago and now in the spirit of love and Christmas they attack someone over a damn piece of junk or clothes. What if one of those people dies WAS IT REALLY WORTH IT TO TAKE SOMEONE’S LIFE? These people are sick.
Then there is Willowbrook Mall is owned by retail real estate giant GGP, which also operates the Columbia Mall in Columbia, Mo., where another parking lot shooting occurred on Thanksgiving night.
Thursday night, police shut down Riverchase Galleria 40 minutes early, after a brawl broke out in Alabama’s largest mall, as shoppers were fighting over bargains.
Merry F***ing Christmas.
