As far as I know it is volunteer on Thanksgiving day. To compensate employees, we get paid more. It is a choice. And good for you, working your ass off. I hope any employee has your same work ethic no matter where they work. This is retail, don't be so surprised with crazy hours!

Every season we get bombarded with poor grammar and all the negativity this person can dole upon us.

YOU created the situation that YOU are in. Had YOU chosen to finish school and then go on and get YOURSELF a degree or skill trade, YOU wouldn't be having to put up with "The customer is always right mentality" in retail where YOU are forced to come in contact with best but also the worst people who haunt our society. People should make retail and fast food a stopping off point while they better themselves, but far too many make it their final destination. It's up to YOU to either climb the ladder or stay on the bottom step. Good Luck and Happy Holidays!
