No. I slept through most of Thanksgiving (was up for dinner and the football game) so that I could help open a retail store that was then swarmed with shoppers.

/Now has a different, non-retail job
//That's closed on (and pays for) holidays
///Black Friday is considered a holiday for the company.

That said women love to be 'shopper gathers'...instead of going out killing a Moose or a Deer.

They strap a HDTV to the roof of their car and brag about how well they stalked it, waited for it, and finally bagged.
