    Re: Walmart Workers Launch Black Friday Strike

    Weelllllllll, I went to 4 stores on Thanksgiving night, Walmart being one of them. Didn't see a single striker. In fact, everybody there was happy. They treated it like a party atmosphere. Were they all happy? Probably not. But the ones I encountered were happy, and more than glad to help.

    Same for Black Friday. I went to the Mall, and hit maybe a dozen stores. Only one store out of all of them, I hit a snag in. Some place called Jimmy Jazz. My daughter wanted some AirMax Nikes, and this was the only place that had them. They were pretty rude, but my daughter wanted the shoes, so I was biting my tongue. Then I inquired about their return policy, and they said, "7 days," as she smacked her gum. "7 days?" "Yeah, 7 days." I said, "You do realize that this is a gift for Christmas, right? Won't even be opened for a month, right?" She said, still smacking her gum, "I'm sorry. 7 days only. And even then, within the 7 days, you can only exchange. No refunds." I snatched my debit card out of her hand, and said, "Cancel my order. I'll spend $105 on a pair of shoes from a retail store that understands the constraints of returns and Christmas shopping." She rolled her eyes, smacked her gum a little more and cancelled my order. She didn't care. Wasn't money out of her pocket.

    American consumerism is as much to blame. Not that I really think it's a big problem. Families and friends can get together whenever the hell they want, nothing inherently special about the day after Thanksgiving.

    Maybe the firemen can do it too. The country would be one really neat bonfire and there wouldn't be anyone to put them out.

    Good! As I get older, and grumpier, I tend to find that being part of the problem is a lot more fun than being part of the solution.

    Being old and grumpy is underrated.
