Greed reigns supreme at Walmart and Target this year. It wasn’t enough to open at midnight after Thanksgiving, now they’re opening at 8:00 pm. Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be treated as just another shopping day. This corporate speak from Kathee Tesija of Target is priceless, “Opening at 9 p.m. gives Target’s Black Friday guests a more convenient way to create an after-dinner shopping event that the entire family can enjoy.” Providing their ‘guests’ with a ‘shopping event’? Puke! Of course, if it saves the life of an obnoxious relative from another family member who had nowhere else to go, then I’ll have to recant.
Business is often ’bout speed
But sometimes you wonder the need,
Now turkey and pie day
Is part of Black Friday,
Nothing says Thanksgiving like greed!
