Black Thursday family values: Do as I say, not as I do

November 24, 2011

Reading your editorial "Stop the madness" (Nov. 22) got me wondering: Will Mr. Target or Ms. Wal-Mart or any of the other executives who decided to open their stores on Thanksgiving be in their offices Thursday evening?

Of course not. They will be home with their families and friends enjoying the holiday. I bet they won't even be in the office on Friday.

It's truly amazing how much corporate greed has trumped family time. Does anyone really believe that opening the stores a few hours earlier is going to make that much of a difference?

Everyone wants to know what happened to family values. I say just look to the corporate leaders who say you'd better make me money and forget about your family or find another job — and by the way, don't bother me while I'm spending time with my family on Thanksgiving.
