KrispyKritter: you make your life choices, quit whining. vladster and cheddar pants are simpering wimps. had you put forth any sort of effort in your lives you losers wouldn't be working retail, especially on a major holiday. you and others like you can kiss and lick my great big hairy pimply stinky white arse while i fluff flatulence from my thanksgiving meal. you are losers and your families hate you./even a feeble attempt of night school at a community college can improve your lot in life, morans//working a holiday is sweet compared to homeless & hungry, you homos
HoagieBoy: Great Porn Dragon:Let's just say if Big Lots would shut down due to not being open Thursday...the US economy would be in such shiat shape that the store could be open 24/7/365 and STILL be screwed, and people would be wearing trash bags as clothing and making grass kimchi along with the North Koreans.If they would lose money then they would not be open on that day. If they make money then that helps him keep his job in the long run (although admittedly only by a minute amount).Maybe I have no sympathy because I have had servers text me that they are broken on Christmas and I went in to fix them. No extra money (salary employee) whatsoever. You know what? It's my job. That what I signed on to do. That's his job....that's what he signed on to do.
HoagieBoy: Soooo....let me see if I have this straight:- The companies are opening on Thursday in order to try to get sales. (or why else would they open)- Vladster is unhappy with thatDid Mr. Vladster consider that maybe the company is doing that to try to bolster the company and increase sales? You know what.....he's right. I'll stay at home and buy the items I want off of the internet and let his retail sales position go "Circuit City" on him. Then he can complain about how we all as a country didn't go out to his store no matter what day it was.\Cry me a river dude.
kombat_unit: Poor retail workers. If stuffing your gaping maw is so important, find a different job.
the8re: I have a BA in Theatre.I went back to another school to get my CCNA.I work in technology and get 11 days off (including Christmas week), 2 weeks vaca, and 2 weeks PBA.Go to school, learn the right things, get a good job.Don't and you will work on Thanksgiving.Or quit. As I have said in other threads, there are plenty of people who would be thankful to have a friggin job.
Skarekrough: Its more than just "creep." It's the absurd notion that we need to be in all-out consumer mode for as long as humanly and financially possible.
Summer Glau's Love Slave: Khazar-Khum: Summer Glau's Love Slave: I think that shopping on Thanksgiving is a good idea. Shoppers get a leg up on the X-Mas rush, and I get some quality alone time to break into their homes and steal all their stuff. It's win win!/Last year I finished all of my 'Holiday Shopping" by Friday at 3:00 AM.//And all I had to pay for was a crowbar and some gas.Too much effort.Just go to the mall & clean out the overstuffed cars. Hit a couple of SUVs and you're done.I wanna be you when I grow up./I can be ur disciple?
Englebert Slaptyback: bhcompybecause you sold half a thousand cases of Bud Light 30packs.Why didn't you just say 500?Are you one of those people who say "half a decade" instead of "five years"?
pgh9fan: What's the big deal about working on Thanksgiving? I work at a bowling alley and I'm going to work. Couldn't care less. It's what I do. If I wasn't working I would be at the mall shopping. So what?I'll get paid to work Thursday.
ChipNASA: FARK RETAILERS/been there done that.ALL HAIL! NORDSTROM!!!!![creative-brand.com image 417x265]/wifey worked there for 10 years. They're the best.
mcwehrle: spif: A few things...1. Turkey + Ham on Thanksgiving2. This is the best holiday we have as Americans. No damn gifts, just food and laziness.3. Know too many people that are pissed off about this. I will deliver a scowl to all who are actually shopping on this day. FTFMMy family has always had turkey AND ham on Thanksgiving.Goose and ham for Christmas.
thomps: that guy writes really well for a dude that works at a big lots in kentucky.
sigdiamond2000: FTFA:I caught the Black Friday shopping bug as a child on - wait for it - Thanksgiving. My family would dine on country ham, fried potatoes and the like, then head to the Big Lots in Cynthiana. It wasn't for the door-buster deals or anything; it was just a fun way to spend the afternoon.These people have serious, serious mental problems.
