“How do you feel about stores opening on Thanksgiving and having early Black Friday sales?” I don’t like to shop on Thanksgiving. I think I’ve talked about it before, but my mother used to work in retail before she became a teacher. She got her degree, you know, she worked full-time and went to school full-time, got her degree when I was 10 or 11. And, so those very formative years, she would spend working on holidays, and it was just devastating, just devastating for me as a kid. And I don’t – it’s, it’s really sh**** that places do that to their employees. Families or no families, you know, people should have the day off. You know, I understand that places like hospitals have to be open Thanksgiving. But, like, my husband’s work is open on Thanksgiving. They sell pot. They don’t need to be open on Thanksgiving. So it’s just discouraging, for sure. I do not and have never gone shopping, especially for like, you know, the Black – early Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving day. I have shopped Black Friday before. That’s fun. It’s crazy, but it can be fun.
