Before kids I did the black shopping thing. I don’t know why really, but chances are that when the kids are older I may do it again (except where I can get free shipping by doing online shopping of course).
Instead, today, I work. Traffic was nonexistent, the parking garage was eerily empty. But no one is around to keep me from getting stuff done. It’s really nice.
I don’t typically mention much on this blog about those topics that are in the ‘air’ currently that are controversial. But for some reason I wanted to talk about Blackturning into Black .
On one hand I’m like ‘whatever’. It is my understanding that most retailers are not having a hard time finding people to work. And a large portion of those that work in retail probably need the extra money that they could make on a holiday, so why not?
On the other hand I think it’s crap. Why make people work on holidays? I doubt I’d ever shop on Thanksgiving.
