People Are Amazing

Remember the other day I wrote about how people were pissed at Amazon over the $100 Xbox 360’s? The original sale happened on Thanksgiving during the afternoon, this week they decided to move the actual sale to Sunday morning, more than likely not to conflict with people being at work.

You guessed it…people are whining.

“Boycott – Sale shouldn’t be held during Church hours on Sunday!!!!!”

“Sunday is the Lord’s Day”

Those are just a couple of titles, not to mention the messages in threads about how they picked an inconvenient time. Is it any wonder why I love being a retailer? There is NO pleasing some people. When should they have the sales? 2 AM? Or does that offend someone else’s sensibilities? I am all for church going, don’t get me wrong, but boycotting Amazon because they are putting a cheapy DVD player on sale while YOU are at church? Weirdness.

  • These people have a choice. They can have God or the sale. If they can’t make that sacrifice for their faith then they’re not really true believers. :-p

  • Roy

    Who decided that Sunday was a holy day anyways?

  • Shari – Bingo. The fact they are even torn in their convictions over something so material makes you question their faith. Are they also boycotting all restaurants open on Sundays? Grocery Stores? Hospitals?

    Roy – You know, that’s the funny bit, Saturday is actually the Sabbath. I’m not sure when it got moved to Sundays.
