I was so fucking angry about this shit that I actually posted it on Facebook, which is something I rarely do.

I wrote:
Holy shit, Best Buy. You're opening at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day? Fuck yourselves, and your complete inability to treat your workers like human beings.

To anyone who goes shopping on Thanksgiving: This is your fault. In absolutely no uncertain terms, you are declaring that your own desire to buy inexpensive crap is more important than allowing dozens of other people to spend a holiday with their families.

Instead of giving these assholes your money, try to remember that holidays should be about spending time with your loved ones, and not about who can do the most shopping. Don't give retailers incentive to cheat honest, hardworking people out of what matters the most so that you can do more of what matters the least.

Sadly they're not the only retailers doing it. Just about every other major retailer is doing it as well, a disgusting lemming effect. Just more proof that the almighty dollar is truly all that matters in this country. Morals and values do not make it onto the list.
