“Black Friday” is coming up and you know what? I just feel like corporate America is killing families.
At first stores opened early on Friday (5 a.m. early bird sale!), then that got pushed back (3 a.m. black Friday sale!), and then that got pushed even further back (midnight door busters sale!). And now I see ads for stores opening up on Thanksgiving itself (get to the holiday sales early!).
What happened to family? What happened to taking a break and not working and not buying? What happened to Thanksgiving touch football with the family? Just being with your family and being thankful. What happened?
Now people are being asked to work on Thanksgiving?
I hate corporate America more every year, and now when I see ads for sales on actual Thanksgiving, I feel like they’re crossing a line, man. They’re boldly crossing into family time, with no regard for the families of the employees that they’re forcing to come to work!
Stay home this Thanksgiving. Be with your family, your friends, and your animals. Don’t go to stores on Thanksgiving and show corporate America that they can’t kill our families with sales!
