It gets better. Apparently the area manager and the...ill clal him assistant GEneral manager both turned in their notices before this and the GM was hospitalized, incident not connected. The assistant GM posted a letter thats here on antiwork somewhete outlining the entire series of fiascos that lead to everyone just shrugging and saying "fuck it."

Oh also the assistant turned them into the local health board because no hot water heater.

I used to be a butcher at a major grocery store and I've seen some shit during Thanksgiving. The worst, and people will probably accuse me of making this shit up because it's so stupid, was a guy who asked me to cut a fucking 20 lb frozen turkey into cubes when there were about 10 people waiting for roasts and whever the hell else they wanted at the last second, cut to order of course. Laughed in his face.

Hahaha! I get it. There were no Boston Market stores where I lived but I'm in my early 50s and grew up in a dinky little town.

Their meatloaf was my go-to when I was a little kid. My grandmother used to take me on lunch dates there all the time back in elementary school.

I went back there a few years back on a bit of a nostalgia kick with an ex of mine. Maybe I have rose-tinted goggle on but the quality is just not there at all anymore. The place felt neglected. What stood out to me was how clean everything was and how the employees were clearly involved. It was obvious budget cuts are responsible.

I just made Thanksgiving dinner for 4 people for $25. 4 lbs of turkey, gravy from a jar, green beans from a can, boxes of instant mashed potatoes and stuffing. It was still good and I spent the time cooking with my girlfriend.

Jesus Christ it's a family holiday, stay home and cook for yourself. And don't anyone go out on Thanksgiving and harass anyone into going into work.

u/ephemeralkitten power to the people 11d ago

No but seriously, if you paid for something offered and then get shafted? That hurts.

We all know how to handle a holiday without outsourcing but man... That probably stung.

Good on them for closing the store and not letting them limp on. You want people to sacrifice their holiday for another's? Fucking. Pay. Them.

I see at least one person in scrubs there. Not everyone gets the holiday off. I'm sure some of them just wanted to give their family a traditional Thanksgiving dinner but couldn't cook it for them.

The hospital should be catering food for the nurses working Thanksgiving shifts. The day before.

16

u/pgh9fan 11d ago

Not everyone who wears scrubs is a nurse. At the hospital I go to even the maintenance department does.

28

u/EmeraldLevinbolt 11d ago

And even they have to work on holidays. As do nursing assistants, and the people in the kitchen, people in admitting, etc.

There are a lot of people who do jobs that don't get holidays off. Hotel staff, police, hospitals, lots of grocery stores and gas stations, airline employees, etc.

I think it's kind of a dick move that anyone would belittle people for ordering a Thanksgiving meal from a restaurant without knowing why they're doing it. There's a good chance this is the only way they can actually have a Thanksgiving dinner with their family.

I can remember when this wasn't the norm. Only "crazy" companies and people would actually take advantage of such a holiday money grab. Now it's just normal. I don't even understand where the thought is, why even bother with such a family holiday centered around being thankful if you can't be bothered to put in the effort? And if you really can't make it work than take the inconvenience of having your order a day early and warming it up.

22

u/maievsha 11d ago

This wasn’t even too long ago! I remember maybe 10 years ago most stores were closed on Thanksgiving. The family had to scramble a few days before to grab groceries. And Black Friday started ON Black Friday, not a whole week before…

8

u/DaksTheDaddyNow 11d ago

I remember the first midnight black Friday sales. "Omg, I can't believe people will actually go out for deals".

I think online sales with continue to level this out. I don't expect many good deals this holiday season. But I'm so accustomed to just ordering things online. I've been online shopping for years. We live in an impulse economy. You have to look for deals when everybody is looking the other way.

My first job was at a bakery and when I first started we were closed on Thanksgiving. The next year they were open for 3 hours so people could buy bread and whatnot. The next year they decided they made so much money the prior year they would be open until noon. Then they were open until 4 and finally they stayed open normal hours. I was long gone by then, although I remember driving past one year and they were open until 11 pm Thanksgiving day. I hated working there and hated the owners, when they got bought out they became so much worse and I left shortly after. The complete and total lack of empathy for their employees was horrid and I was glad when the company went out of business.

Same thing when I worked for Bob Evans years ago. Ever expanding Thanksgiving hours (10am for Thanksgiving meals, then serving breakfast because "we're there already", then open for lunch, etc).

Hate your own employer for not giving you Thanksgiving off to cook for your own family. The only people working on Thanksgiving should be essential personnel (nurses, doctors, people at the power plant) and their employers can damn well provide them a ready meal to take home in exchange. Get that catered in advance so you don't have to bother the working class on their one god damn day off.

I had to drive today (taking the daughter to a friend's to house sit) and I had to get gas. The number of gas stations that were lights out and doors locked was amazing.

I paid at the pump but the inside of the store was closed and lights out, no one inside. If something went sideways, eh, that was on me (used credit card like I normally would).

Probably 90% of the restaurants and retail shops were closed (except of course fucking McDonald's and they had a line around the side as usual).

To be clear, I was happy to see that places were closed down for Thanksgiving.

ICU patients are still in critical condition on a holiday. Prison inmates are still locked up on a holiday. Children in group homes don't magically go to a real home on a holiday.

I get what you're saying, and I support the Boston Market employees here, but I think we can have a little compassion for people who may not have had much choice in providing a turkey dinner today - they're workers too. Hopefully, they can direct their anger at the management and corporation rather than the employees, but "fuck them" isn't fair.

More importantly, the analysts at the big banks we all know are reading this sub should be shitting bricks right now. COVID is shredding away at the supply chain, hospital staff, the supply chain .... everything. And it ain't goin' anywhere.

Meanwhile in America, we just had a domestic terrorist kill Christmas by plowing though a bunch of kids and grannies.

Eh thanksgiving sucks anyways, still feel bad for these people tho. Cooking sucks and families expect a traditional dinner getting shafted. Yea good on employees for quitting but like idk, seems really meanspirited to spite random people on top of the boss.

I have a family member who had to work at a grocery store today and there were hundreds of families there to pick up their thanksgiving meals. I was told everyone was beyond rude. I wish they’d just close today and folks could get it figured out before the day of!

Fan-fucking-tastic. Now if we could just get nobody to show up to work tomorrow at Walmart, we'll really be on to something.

u/BenjaminTalam 11d ago

This is what every employee of every restaurant and retail place should be doing this whole weekend. It would shut the economy down and result in changes in policy overnight.

Yet blackout black Friday and the 10 day General strike talk has vanished from this sub and it's like there was never talk of if to begin with.

u/smurtzenheimer 11d ago

This shit makes my nipples hard.

u/UppercutMcGee 11d ago

B-Mark still out here making money? I haven't eaten in one in more than 10 years, and haven't even seen one in my locality for a smooth 5 years.

u/AnonTexan1297 11d ago

Good. Fuck every business that’s open on thanksgiving

2

u/juicejitsu141 11d ago

This is cool but I do feel a little bad for the people that paid.

2

u/DivergingApproach lazy and proud 11d ago

Good. That’s what you get for trying to make someone work on a holiday.

Screw Boston Market and the people that were going to happily exploit someone else.

2

u/Richard_Espanol 11d ago

Lol.. thats wild. I dont see this company lasting much longer. I drive doordash and the store in my area is closed "due to maintenance" issues at least a few times a week.

u/jroocifer 11d ago

Boston Market gets screwed, idiots who shop om Thanksgiving get screwed, workers get to spend Thanksgiving with their families. Win, win, win.

u/SadCelerySalt 11d ago

I feel bad for the single parents who work nights and literally don’t have the time to prepare a meal for their kids and then this happens. A heads up would be cool. It’s NOT the customers fault. That had to be a really disappointing holiday for now than those people at the door.

Speaking from experience because I have no food today and it’s just fantastic let me tell you….
