Tis the season for KILLER DEALS

November 24th, 2013 · 78 comments

Shortly after Denver’s first snowfall of the season, Sharon looked out her window to see her neighbor making a snowman. “I thought he was doing something cute for his girlfriend. Who knew it was actually a frosty political statement about the cold evils of capitalism?”

    Sharon needs to get a really good home security system….. and a large guard dog…… and possibly sleep with weapon of choice under her pillow.

    Or just move to another city, preferably before Friday :-)

      Don’t you know that indoor snowmen live shorter, less fulfilling lives? Let your snowman stay outside where he’s happy. My snowman is an outdoor snowman.

    Actually this year it’s “Black Thanksgiving.” Taking away the holidays of retail workers to fill the pockets of CEOs.

    As a minor tiff about this with mom this morning. She was going on about how doctors work that day and I said, “That’s because people might need to go to the hospital on Thanksgiving. NO ONE needs to go to JC Penny’s.” And then I walked away.

      To be fair, a lot of retailers (I think even Walmart) pay their workers double time and a half for working holidays. At least that was the case when I was in restaurant purgatory.

      For a lot of people, it’s worth rescheduling holidays for that extra cash.

      And while everybody necessarily needs to go JC Penney on Thanksgiving, plenty of people may need to go to say a hardware store if they have a house emergency. Just try getting a plumber or an electrician on a holiday.

      We no longer live in an old timey world where Sunday is the day of rest for everybody. If literally nobody but the police and the fire department worked holidays, Internet sites wouldn’t necessarily work (no guy to make sure the servers are up and running), so no Cyber Monday shopping for you. You wouldn’t fly anywhere, you’d have no tv programming or radio programming. And if you really did need emergency services because your house burned down, you wouldn’t be able to go to Sears to get some clothes.

      Walmart pays them straight time, plus wages for an “average” day from the previous week. So basically they cut hours the week before, so they pay them less than double time on the holiday. It’s crap.

      You’re right, Red. According to CNN Money article, Walmart said in a conference call that it pays its people regular pay plus “average daily wage in the two weeks prior to the holiday”.

      That’s not even time and a half, because apparently a lot of managers purposefully cut back people’s hours in the two weeks prior to the holiday.

      All the more reason not to shop at Walmart, ever (as if there weren’t enough reasons already).

      Just returned from there, and sorry I am not sympathetic to the insinuation that some people are being forced to work on holidays when they’d rather be at home.

      If you’re working in retail, chances are you’re poor and have different priorities. Most crappy jobs offer part time hours anyway, so people are always scrambling for hours. Besides, given the choice I think that some people would prefer to have their birthday/anniversary off or some other day that actually means something to them, instead of Thanksgiving.

      Kind of sick of hearing this to be honest. Yes, it’s partly corporate greed, but only because they can.

      Instead of bitching about the nasty greedy CEO’s, how about y’know, not going shopping. They’re not going to open on holidays if it’s not economically viable because there are no customers.

      Like it or not, it’s the consumers who drive the trend of stores opening on holidays, not those evil greedy companies.

      “If you’re working in retail, chances are you’re poor and have different priorities.” You forget that retail stores also have managers. I make a decent salary, but because I’m salary they can dictate whenever the hell I work. I’m lucky enough to live in a state that has laws that prohibit anyone nonessential from working on Thanksgiving, but that still means I need to be at my store and clocked in at 12:01. So I’m planning on leaving Thanksgiving dinner around 6 so that I’ll have SOME time to sleep before heading down there. I don’t know how people with children do it.

      I’m actually putting in my notice today. Fingers crossed they just send me home instead of make me work out my two weeks, which has been the trend lately.

      I think that you’re forgetting that the vast majority of retail/fast food workers aren’t salaried. And are recorded as part time even when they’re working full time hours just so they don’t have to be paid benefits and managers can look good to their bosses for keeping costs down.

      I work at a video store, that’s open every day except Christmas. My boss pays double-time on stat holidays (Thanksgiving isn’t one in Canada, I don’t think – but Rememberance Day a few weeks later was), and I always jump to work them. Need the cash. And whenever someone comes in and is all, “It’s so sad you have to work on the holiday!” I always politely remind them that as long as they’re going to keep coming here on holidays, we’re going to be open. People don’t seem to understand that.

      I think it’s a little obnoxious to show pity like that to someone working on a holiday. If I have to get gas or run to the convenience store on a holiday, I try to thank the person for working that day and being open. Who wants to hear “sorry you have to work” 100 times a day?

      I used to love working holidays when I worked in retail. Gave me a reason to get out of the house for a while (because my family was driving me crazy), and not only did I get my regular pay for the week but I also got an extra dollar an hour as holiday pay. (Also, I think people were nicer than usual.)

      I just don’t like the dirty deal that these people are pulling on their employees and I for one don’t intend to be part of the problem.

      And the way people act now a days when dealing with workers even a person who hates their family would likely rather be with them cause they can tell them to shut up – while at work they have to put up with parents who let their kids run around, people screaming at them, people shitting everywhere except in the toilet, being trampled, etc all with a smile.

      My retail worker friends all said the same thing re: last year: They were swamped for the first couple/few hours, and then DEAD. I just think all of this is unnecessary. People will buy what they want at 6 a.m. on Friday if you wait until then to open.

      Jami, in the interest of familial harmony and maintaining one’s personal sanity, usually the easiest/best thing to do is exactly what holiday retail workers do: shut up, don’t engage and grin and bear it.

      Telling somebody to shut up is bound to escalate the tension and it’s one step closer to ending up on an episode of “Cops”, assuming they even still film those.

      I get wanting the money and also having holidays as you regular work day, but Thanksgiving is our biggest, almost universally celebrated American holiday. It’s the day that everyone I knows makes sure everyone is having dinner someplace. Whether or not the worker needs the money, it just smacks of heartless greed when large corporations make choices that require non-essential employees to work when you know damn well they’re at home having their holiday.

      Retail workers are poor so they don’t care about Thanksgiving? I’m not following the logic there. Just because some of you wouldn’t mind working doesn’t mean that its ok to FORCE workers to work a shift that day. And yes, places like Macy’s are indeed forcing their employees. If you got a seasonal job there this year then you MUST work T’sgiving Day. It’s preying on the fact that people need the money. And why are retail workers so poor? Because they aren’t PAID enough. I can’t believe people are even arguing in favor of places being open. A gas station, sure. Anything else can wait. Seriously. Ridiculous. If white collar workers were forced to work, I think suddenly everyone defending it would be changing their tune.

      Maybe they took a page from the Sam Raimi Cookbook?

      INGREDIENTS
      6 pints clear Karo syrup
      3 pints red food coloring
      1 pint non-dairy creamer
      1 drop blue food coloring

      EQUIPMENT
      Large ceramic bowl
      Medium sized bowl
      Spoon
      Cleaning products

      1. The Karo Syrup is your foundation, the base of your blood. Pour syrup into large ceramic bowl.
      2. In the medium bowl, stir the non-dairy creamer until it turns into a nice paste. This will provide opacity.
      3. Gradually fold the non-dairy paste into the syrup.

      I’m thankful for lots of things, but I really don’t like that tradition at my in-laws either, Red. I just want to say a blessing and EAT! Seriously, there are like 30 people there. By the time we get to number 10, I’m done. I can’t remember a single thing anybody said at the end. On a side note, I am particularly thankful for one thing… My husband’s ex-wife won’t be there for the second time in the 16 years he and I have been together. She married his brother after their divorce, and now that THEY are divorced, the odd forced interactions are a thing of the past. Don’t get me wrong, there’s not a lot of drama at the gatherings, but it does get awkward. The Uncle Stepdad angle, me – the younger second wife (14 years younger, and sometimes referred to as “little girl”), the sister-in-law who is best friends with the ex and barely talks to me. It goes on and on…Happy Thanksgiving to me! Looking forward to Christmas with my side of the family.

      “A time to give thanks to their God”? Er, Jeannine, aren’t you forgetting that Thanksgiving is pretty much an American/Canadian thing? Celebrating the harvest isn’t that big of a deal elsewhere in the world.

      I don’t know how you were raised, but my family gave thanks to God on Christmas and Easter.

      We expressed/express appreciation for each other (the living) on that particular person’s birthday. And we remember those no longer with us on Halloween and on whatever day they died.

      So sorry, but unless you can trace your family lineage to the Mayflower or something, I don’t really see the point of celebrating the fact that a bunch of native people did’t let another bunch of wealthy English people starve to death when those very same wealthy English people screwed them out of their land and gave them diseases. The dismal state of affairs for modern day aboriginal communities pretty clearly cements the fact that nobody is “thankful” for anything.

      Man, I am so glad I’m not going home for Thanksgiving this year. In my family it’s just an excuse for more drama. My mom’s estranged twin brother invited himself in my absence- should be fun. Me, I’m going to get some work done, maybe make a pie, and watch some movies.

      To add to the actual discussion, my girlfriend is trying to get herself scheduled for Thanksgiving so she won’t have to spend time with her family. She’s certainly the exception rather than the rule, but there are definitely some retail workers out there who would prefer to be working than spending time with their families.

      I get that spending the day with family isn’t exactly awesome for some, but why is it a choice between work or family? You all haven’t heard of friends? Taking a just-for-me day? Your girlfriend can tell her family that she has “plans” and then not actually have plans.

      Though if she lives with her family that might get awkward.

      The best thing my husband and I did for each other was break the family holiday traditions. Screw trying to juggle who gets Christmas and who gets Christmas eve. Screw trying to get both families in the same room at the same time. My ideal Christmas is the two of us, at home with nothing but the cats, a new game, dinner in the crockpot (or casserole dish), and lots o’ booze. Bliss!

      But Kermit I can trace my family lineage back to the Mayflower, viva my fathers family. So does that mean extra pie for me? Because heck I’m really thankful that my ancestors didn’t all starve to death. They then moved to Canada after the fact but still.

      If you can trace you family lineage back to the Mayflower, then that just means that Thanksgiving has personal meaning to you. Just like D-day would have personal meaning to you if one of your relatives was rescued from a concentration/prison camp or something.

      Otherwise, let’s face it, your birthday, anniversary birth of your children, etc. have more personal and important meaning to you and your family than Thanksgiving. Come on.

    I don’t understand the whole “I don’t have anything to do, so let’s go shopping” angle. Maybe it’s because I hate shopping and I hate crowds, so shopping when it is crowded (and with bonus horrible music) is right up there with a visit to the dentist. But, seriously? Y’all ain’t heard of DVDs? Pick your favorite flick, kill two hours.

      Ah, clearly you haven’t met the naive bargain hunter who thinks that stuff is actually cheapest on Black Friday. (Spoiler: certain things are, most things aren’t, especially if you’re in the market for computer and tablet things).

      Saving money is nice. You know is nicer? Saving my sanity.

      Agreed. I’d rather take the day to clean the whole apartment rather than go shopping. Especially on Thanksgiving weekend.

      I would rather bathe a cat than go Black Friday shopping.

      An outdoor cat or an indoor cat?

      Wait, no don’t answer that.

      For some people, things like clothing go on sale so cheaply and they actually have a little bit of money, that this is the only time they can get stuff like Christmas presents or winter clothing. I know a fair few people who use Black Friday to buy winter wardrobes. I don’t understand people who don’t get that not everyone has money.

      I get that people don’t have money because I’m one of them. What I don’t get is people who believe commercials that clearly aren’t the truth (e.g. stuff at Walmart is cheap, eating at fast food restaurants is cheap, stuff on Black Friday is cheap, etc).

      Winter clothing is cheapest at the end of the season or in the spring when they’re trying to get rid of the winter stock and bring in spring stuff. Same with the canard about “back to school sales”. (I’m assuming here that you don’t care about having to wear last season items)

      No, I get the whole “I’m broke, I need this, I’m taking advantage of a sale no matter what.” Been there myself. But I’d have to be on my last pair of draws before I’d brave the Black Friday sales. There will be other deals. It is truly not worth it.

      An outdoor bobcat, kermit. I hate mall shopping in the best of moods, and on a day when there’s a million people all shoving to get at overpriced crap I’d be more likely to be arrested than to find a good deal.

      Probably the reason they don’t let me deal with people anymore.

      I’d rather bathe a mountain lion than go out on Black Friday. Or bathe a werewolf. Surely with either, or perhaps both of those, I’d still come out looking better than after dealing with rabid shoppers.

    75 people stand in line for 7 hrs for a chance at one laptop in stock for $127.99. My snowman doesn’t need a fence or leash because my snowman only pooes in his own yard.
