True. This IS really a first world problem. Except here in Detroit, where it is like the third world for a lot of people.

But I used to love getting yelled at because we didn't get 30+ Sony HDTV's when I worked at Target...now I'm an RN and I get yelled at daily! Retail does suck and I am thankful to not have to do that anymore.

Yeah, I did my time in Retail prior to my career choice. Nothing like working for a giant retail sports store and loading pool tables/hockey tables, selling guns, etc. on T-Day. I did not care for it either, and made considerably less money. People are assholes, including patients in the hospital, who can be much worse than the normal consumer. Its all retail, hospitals make money like any other business, and they are good at it, regardless of who has to work on holidays.

Well, sir, there's no hate here, just an utter disdain for impertanence and self- aggrandizement, notwithstanding the beliefs and feelings of others. And you have the audacity to call yourself "Revvy"

Not going to lie, when I was in a selling department it was my guilty pleasure to tell people who stayed in line for hours that we no longer have any left.

I love watch people act immature, doesn't make it right for them to act that way. Yet it sure is intriguing to wonder what causes people to act like that over such meager things. I guess thats why married an anthropologist..

Yeah But I have a hellalotta respect for you. I'm in the midst of a health crises with my 88 year old mom who fell 2 weeks ago. Broke her hip and now is in a rehab place....and might have to go into assisted living when she gets out. You're a godsend. I watch the nurses and others with her (she also might have sundwoner's syndrome and has evidently gotten abusive with some folks I guess) and the patience they have with the patients is amazing.

Yeah, but you opened the topic of THANKSGIVING boycott. Thanks to who? to Christ? My relies are pertinent to the topic of the holiday. Sorry my views offend your personal view.

This is not about retail as a career. It is about one half of one day where it is totally classless to open the stores!

And as I said, in my state it in not so much of a choice as the likely option to being unemployed!
