comment from 'surfacenoise' on the Consumerist:
"I'm sorry, but I have absolutely no problem with stores being open on Thanksgiving Day. Not everyone has family to spend the day with, and quite frankly, many of us who do will need some sort of break by mid-day."
Apparantly, it's a stifling, degrading dinner with the family or pushing a cart around under the flourescents looking for a bargain.
Why not bundle up and go for a walk? When's the last time you actually strolled around your neighborhood? Watch some old videos, organize your sock drawer, call someone you haven't talked to in a long time, write letters, listen to records, sew buttons, anything! You cannot tell me that without stores being open, people without families would be adrift in a sea of nothingness and despair and soul-crushing boredom.
Me and Vee don't want to work on Thanksgiving. I'm all mad about this shit.
