PSA: Please remember to be extra nice to anyone working retail or other service industry jobs this week. Had to run to Costco yesterday and it felt almost Black Friday bad.
Also remember that there are other ways to show someone you love them that don't involve buying stuff.
I hope everyone reading this has a wonderful holiday time.
@rantingsteve I work big-box retail.
Yesterday was INSANE!
Please be kind to retail employees during this time of year!

@rantingsteve retail workers here are trained to wish you a good day or w/e at the end of a sale. I always wish them to "have a good shift".
I don't know a better thing to say.
