Tellingthem: HMS_Blinkin: the_rhino: Its disgusting that stores start their sales on thanksgiving.Indeed. No one (shoppers I mean) should show up for this crap. Make sure retailers understand that this is not a money-making proposition.I would also suggest to people that you avoid grocery stores, restaurants, bars, gas stations, convenience stores, etc if you don't like people having to work on holidays.
The Muthaship: The reason we have sales on Thanksgiving Day is the same reason we are afflicted with idiots like the Kardashians. We apparently want them.
farm machine: Here's a novel idea - DON'T GO SHOPPING ON THANKSGIVING!!!!But I suspect many people will revere consumerism more than family and have an issue with that suggestion.
DrewCurtisJr: Well then there would be no black friday.
JerseyTim: I try not to be judgmental, but if you go to a pre-Black Friday sale on Thanksgiving Day, you're a bad person.

Dinjiin: Black Friday would be fun if stores didn't play the limited stock, no rain check game. Even if I get in line two hours before the store opens, most of the better deals are gone by the time I get inside.Fry's Electronics is one of the worst offenders. They'll have super deal on a TV listed on the front page of their Black Friday flier, but then only have 10 or 20 in stock. It is just a scam to build excitement and get you into the store. They figure that even if the product you want isn't in stock, you'll still pick something up so that you don't consider your time wasted.And fark the retailers for store opening creep. Double fark the ones that have gone into Thursday night. Triple fark the customers who enable them to do so.
gingerjet: the_rhino: Its disgusting that stores start their sales on thanksgiving.Who the fark cares? Christmas is an invention of marketers. Don't get all false outraged when they learn new ways to continue to milk consumers over something they invented./not buying a damn thing this Christmas
