My big question is: where have these people been the last bunch of decades? For all my life some businesses have been open on Thanksgiving. Convenience stores, gas stations, some restaurants, some grocery stores, once night time hits a lot of bars. There’s nothing new about this idea of some people working the holidays. The only thing that’s change is higher profile companies seeking Black Friday dollars are opening Thanksgiving.

And I sure hope the folks whining about people working today don’t watch any TV or listen to the radio. That’s all people working today too.

Best line of the discussion. I made a similar comment yesterday (not here) about how I would expect all of those people complaining about others working today because its anti-family won't be posting this type nonsense today because they can't be all that interested in family if they are arguing with strangers on line. It didn't go over very well.

Most of the radio stations around here are fully automated. The programming often gets screwed up, so you'll get two-week old weather forecasts and 15 minute blocks of silence. No one is even on call until the next day.
