Seriously, do people have nothing better to do?!

Found 12th Apr 2009
Today (Easter Sunday) I went to my local retail park to play with my Nitro RC Car (big open carpark well away from houses).
Whilst i was there there were so many people coming into the retail park to see if the shops were open, some going so far as to walking right up to the doors!

Surely people know all large stores are closed on Easter Sunday?!

Bunch of idiots all of them i say!

Remember back to the days when shops didn't open on any Sunday. I guess people have just forgotten what a day of rest is.

Shops never used to be open on Sunday anyway....oh those were the days!

I think it's great that shops are shut and think there should be more days that force us to do something more interesting.

e.g. Boxing day

I didn't realise Easter Sunday was that much of a big deal. Apparently today and christmas are the only days in the year large stores cant open.

couldn't agree more,people might actually get out into the countryside rather than the big shopping centers at the weekend!

Is always good for the shop workers as well

There's rugby and football matches on though. Celebrating the 'birth' of someone is okay. But celebrating the day they were zombied up is a bit of a stretch for a day off.

When do we get to celebrate the day he scaled the Empire State Building, or took to sucking blood?

Yes, exactly what the economy (and workers) need - a day off unpaid.

Just imagine having another day that could be busy too. But no, we have to have shops shut and the pope and the Jonas Brothers on tv.

Suppose it works though - two ways to stop you buying condoms.

LOL @ this thread generating a buzz since I entered it.

JFK = serious hype.

all the major supermarkets were open friday, saturday and open monday ...... they need one day off :lol:

where i work, was packed all day wednesday, thurs, fri and sat ..... it will be tomorrow ....... for friday and monday we are on double pay plus day in lieu
