A NOTE TO THE GREEDY RETAILERS!!!

For God's sake--STAY CLOSED ON THANKSGIVING!!!

Those who work retail know what the Christmas shopping days are like. 
BLACK FRIDAY is called that not just because of the one day. It's the kick-off for the next non-stop days until Christmas Eve.

for RETAIL WORKERS it's exhausting!! It's a nightmare!! From the DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING UNTIL CHRISTMAS EVE the STORES are PACKED WITH FRENZIED SHOPPERS.

RETAIL WORKERS

Have no time to shop for themselves.
Get no rest.
Have to keep a smile on the faces, and
Have to remain pleasant.

While continuously dealing with

HORDES OF SHOPPERS

Who are demanding
In a hurry
Rude
Loud
Pushy
Irritable

This year it is for 27 days.

SO....................RETAILERS AND RETAIL BOSSES...............GIVE THEM THAT ONE DAY!!

ONE DAY TO BE WITH THEIR FAMILIES.......
ONE DAY TO BE RESTED.............
ONE DAY FOR ANTICIPATION OF THE MONTH AHEAD........
THAT ONE DAY CAN MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE IN THE WORKERS' ATTITUDES, ENTHUSIASM, ENERGY-LEVELS, AND PRODUCTIVITY.

THE ONES WHO MAKE THE DECISION TO OPEN ON TURKEY DAY ARE NOT THE ONES WHO HAVE TO GET UP FROM THE DINNER TABLE AND GO TO WORK. 

RETAILERS--YEAH, YOU--LARGE CORPORATIONS!!!

Opening on Thanksgiving is

GREEDY
SELFISH
UNCARING
COLD-HEARTED

And SHOPPERS WHO SHOP ON THANKSGIVING........

You are

GREEDY
SELFISH
UNCARING
COLD-HEARTED

LET THOSE WORKERS HAVE THE DAY OFF!! 
IT'S THE HUMANE THING TO DO

And just a note to all of you: I never have, will not, and never will shop on Thanksgiving Day or the day after.

BUT THE REST OF AMERICA WILL COME, WHETHER YOU ARE OPEN ON THANKSGIVING OR NOT.

And that's what I think................
