So…this came across my Facebook feed and I felt a way about it and started writing but then realized I’d written a paragraph and decided not to even post my response there. However, I still had to get my thoughts out so here’s what I had plus what I added when I got here:
Here’s the problem with part of that though, first response and military personnel probably get leave part of the year. The places most likely to be open Black Friday are filled with hourly workers who rarely get that kind of time off. Also, if everyone asks off or calls in sick then there’s no one to work and black friday shoppers would be out of luck. Then, while most shoppers are probably cool, on that one day there is a sudden high volume of shoppers, many will be stressed and have nasty attitudes and be horribly inconsiderate of the workers and other shoppers. Not to mention that most will work earlier than usual. Admittedly, no one wants to hear anyone complain and I was of the same mind for a while. But frankly, I don’t see why people don’t just stay at home on actual Thanksgiving so everyone can spend time with their families, considering that Black Friday is the next day. In fact, I’m not even sure it’s about spending time with the family. It’s the fact that it’s a holiday “stolen” they basically cannot enjoy or rather than enjoy it they have to deal with overzealous crowds of cranky people. Granted, they should be grateful to have a job, but it very well could be that they have no choice but to be there when the powers that be tell them and who wouldn’t complain about that.
Personally, I have a corporate job and also moonlight as a cashier and even on a normal day customers can irk nerves, and let me tell you, they are worthy of all complaints even on a normal day. Now, I’ve volunteered to work Black Friday because it isn’t a major store and I want the money. WANT. Like I said before, many people don’t have the luxury of making a choice. Yes, they can support their families in this way but we don’t have to have a self-righteous entitled stance on someone else’s HOLIDAY time and how they just may feel a way about it. And then the vent wasn’t even about Black Friday itself, it was about Thanksgiving. Why should they complain? WHY SHOULD THEY COMPLAIN? So, you get your holiday and choose to use it to shop (when you could do it the next day or online) and it’s automatically invalid for someone to complain they didn’t get theirs ? I just don’t understand. I mean, some places if you don’t work when they say, consider yourself dismissed. 
Anyway, I will likely be at work on actual Black Friday because I’m not giving my Thanksgiving to anyone and could give two shits about anyone’s perceived need to shop “deals”. OH but I will be at work Black Friday. Voluntarily. And I dare anyone to come in there with an entitled air or attitude or look down on me because of where I work and how I should serve them etc etc. Oh I’ll smile and be polite, but try me with the bullshit on that day and especially on that day.

This Is Our Relationship

You: *Swinging keys around not paying any attention to your surroundings*

Me: Hey, you might want to stop that. You can hurt somebody

You: *Completely ignores and continues doing what you were doing and hits me with keys*

Me: Ouch, that hurt. See I told you to cut that out

You: It wasn’t on purpose

Me: Yea I know, but can you just not do that anymore

You: *Goes right back to swinging keys and hits me again*

Me: Yo WTF dude, OW! I said cut that out

You: *laughs* You’re overreacting and it wasn’t on purpose, chill 

Me: Whatever man. Sure it wasn’t. But like, just stop that ok.

You: Yea. Ok. *Continues swinging keys*

Me: *Shakes head in disbelief*

You: *Hits me right in the eye causing tears to run down*

Me: OMFG I TOLD YOU TO CUT IT OUT, NOW I’M CRYING. YOU DO NOT LISTEN TO ME AT ALL. ON PURPOSE OR NOT, YOU KEPT DOING WHAT I ASKED YOU NOT TO DO. UGH, WHY DO I BOTHER!!!

You: You have issues. You’re always nagging and my life is stressful and you just don’t understand me

Me: Wait, what? I just asked you to not…and then you hurt me…and wait, what?

You: *crickets*

Me: Are we at least going to talk about it?

You: *crickets*

Me: I mean, I’m the one who got hurt though

You: *crickets*

Me: Ok, change of subject. Hi.

You: *crickets*

Me: Helllllooooo?

You: *crickets*

Me: Fine.

You: Hey, can you cross the ocean for me right quick?

Me: *crosses ocean*

******************************************************************

I’ve always given you the upper hand and you always manage to smack me down with it rather than lift me up and hold me tight.

Eventually I always stand again and you say you didn’t see me there.

Then we repeat. 

When I take back the upper hand and beat the shit out of you with it, you will deal.

NIGGA.

why did this seem like a smart idea

yes.

if you don’t think this is awesome you have no soul.
BECAUSE THIS IS AWESOME.

My guy once stated he wanted to do this. I hope he has forgotten all about it. I mean it’s pretty cool/interesting but not in a sexy way. I mean I don’t want to be looking into the eyes of an elephant if I’m…nevermind
