    New word to me. Love this strip. And love the fact I don’t have to work on Thanksgiving (but will have to work Black Friday).

    Calling it Black Friday is part of the marketing propaganda. It should be called Red Friday because of all the consumer debt that is created. I have to say though that they have done a good job conning consumers into thinking that they are getting great sales prices (NOT)! If you want good sales pricing wait until the week before Christmas when they become desperate to move merchandise.

    As my uncle is a firefighter who’s had to miss Christmas before, I appreciate those who have to work holidays. Thank you to those who do jobs vital to keeping society functioning safely.

    As some one who spent many years in retail. I am refusing to shop at ANY non-grocery store that is open any time between Wend the 26th at 11 pm and Friday the 28th at 6 am. If you don’t like what stores are doing, then speak with your wallet ‘cause that’s all the shareholders listen to.
    .
    As for the sales themselves? Shoot, Amazon is a better price on more stuff anyway…

    Well that is the point of it being called black Friday because it is the day most stores get out of the red on the accounting books and into the black

    My mom was a waitress – she missed many holidays at home including Thanksgiving.

    My point being, in all those years, I never heard any complaints about restaurants and banquet rooms needing servers to work!

    Boy, I just learned something again, I had always thought that definition was included in the “staunch” spelling. And as is often the case, I was wrong.

    I have had this same discussion with a long time friend, who often gasses on about the poor, poor cashier who “must” work on Thanksgiving due to the greedy corporate interests. The fact that the cashier is likely making time-and-a-half or more to volunteer is besides the point. I “won” the discussion when I asked why my friend doesn’t complain about the poor, poor people who work in the stadiums and arenas that hold sporting events on Thanksgiving and the following day? As a big time sports fan, she didn’t have a response to that.

    Not everyone who works Thanksgiving volunteers to work that day, but it’s true that a lot of them do. I do feel a little sorry for those who would rather spend time with family than work on Thanksgiving, but I don’t blame “greedy corporate interests”; after all, if their customers didn’t want them to be open Thanksgiving, they wouldn’t be…
