I'm kind of irritated with Black Friday and all of its ugliness. I have no problem working tomorrow (if I hadn't made it known, I work as a sales associate at Walmart now where I've been since early October). The store is hosting a luncheon for us associates working, which is nice of them. I asked for the morning shift, uncommon for me since I usually work the evening into the night. They willingly gave me a short day so I can spend it with family.
However, even though I won't be working the 'events,' which will happen at 8 PM, 10 PM and 12 AM, the entire aura of Black Friday is as ugly as the name. It makes Thanksgiving look like a joke so people can save money on something they truly don't need. It takes away from the entire premise of the holiday, even if it's a day after. Cyber Monday I have absolutely no problem with, because it's not stealing the limelight from a holiday celebrating giving thanks.
I'll still be working on Friday, just later in the morning cleaning up all the mess from those who came and trampled their peers, elders and children to get the first copy of the latest video game. Such a joke this 'holiday' is...Black Fucking Friday.
