Holiday Boycott Thoughts

I see a lot of people posting various memes on social media about not shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, because "everybody deserves a holiday". That's a great sentiment. But I propose a bit more thought be put into it.

If you stop there, you're just doing it halfway. If you won't shop at Sear's, Macy's or Wal Mart because those people deserve their holiday, I hope you don't plan on watching football, either. For every over-paid athlete on the field, how many food vendors, parking lot attendants, janitors, security guards and maintenance people are working that day? Isn't it a bit hypocritical to support the NFL making people work on a holiday while protesting retail stores doing the same thing?

Boycott the NFL on Thanksgiving weekend! College football, too, while we're at it.
