  1. Wonder how the religious right would find this interesting turn of events? I’m surprised they don’t grumble we’re basically commercializing a deities birthday for profit.

      Well, we do. That whole “Put Christ back in Christmas” thing? That’s us grumbling. But most of us (call us the ‘Religious Normals’ if you want) are sane enough to realize that not everyone shares are beliefs, and we tend to focus more on trying to get people to “do good on Christmas” rather than “believe”. (IE, follow the principle behind the holiday, even if you don’t have the same belief set.)

    • What makes you think only religious people would care about the commercialization of Christmas? A lot of non-religious people celebrate it too. If you’re going to be condescending, at least live in reality.

    • I’ve never heard that name, either. Too lazy to Google it right now. I suppose it’s where the idea of the 12 days of Christmas comes from. Stuart would like Christmas shopping season to be all year, anyway. And for some people, it is.

  2. It’s not about religion with you at all is it Stuart? Only about trying to get as much money out of people as you can. What a sorry excuse for a human being.

      • He acts like it’s all going into his own pocket. He makes a salary and that’s what he gets. Though he probably gets substantial raises depending on how well his stores do so he puts more pressure on Marla and his other store managers to squeeze every nickel out of the customers they can.

    • I’m more concerned with the risk of them doing to christmas what they did to Thanksgiving, and making it just another day the store is open. (seriously, some places weren’t even open less hours this year for thanksgiving, and no, they didn’t ask for volunteers to work said day afaik.)
