Sometimes I feel very

Sometimes I feel very disappointed in people. There was a young woman on the news last night who when referring to stores being open on Thanksgiving said "It was probably in their job description so..." Years ago I worked for a small company chain owned by a southern family. They were always closed on Sundays and major holidays. One fall we were told out of the blue we would be open on Thanksgiving and it was mandatory for all to work. It was not in our job description and it was the first year many of us were away from our families. I wish everyone would remember the real meanings of holidays. Not to mention the fact that so many people right now are working retail because of the slow economy. Yes, some people don't mind working on holidays, but others are working these jobs because they desperately need money. They can't quit or decide not to take a job in retail just because they don't want to work holidays. I am just asking that people remember what the holidays are all about. If we all did that, Christmas wouldn't be so commercialized and stores wouldn't be open on Thanksgiving in the first place.
