I’ve worked at Wal Mart for two and a half years. And this Thanksgiving was the first time I saw just how crazy people get over Black Friday. It’s not about the holiday anymore. It’s not about being with family anymore. Thanksgiving has become just another day people wait to get over with so they can go shopping. Why not just get rid of it as a holiday? If retail isn’t going to respect it as such and people are going to skip it, choosing instead to camp out in front of Best Buy for 3 days, it shouldn’t be around. When my boss laughs at me for wanting to go home early in order to spend time with family, it’s not a holiday. It’s just another day at work and another way to make money.
