So allow me to vent for a moment. I will NOT mention these businesses by name...although I would LOVE to...but I have a small piece of advice for you violators. And mind you, I am not a business man in any way...but I think I've got a pretty good grasp on this. OPEN ON TIME!!!!! IF YOUR STORE ADVERTISES BUSINESS HOURS OF 5:30AM-8PM (or whenever)...THEN OPEN AT 5:30!!!! 5:30am does NOT mean 5:40...or 5:55 or sometime after 6. Lots of people get up very early like me...and may need to visit your establishment on the early side, as we don't have many options. Listen...I have a job that requires me to get up early...and I HAVE to be on time...just like LOTS of us. Getting up very early is HARD. It never gets easy, but that isn't an excuse. If you agree to work a job and you are on the early shift...GET UP EARLIER if you can't open on time.
Look...I COMPLETELY understand if it happens from time to time...and you open a couple minutes late. But 45 minutes? And on a consistent basis? How could this possibly happen? And how could management do NOTHING about it? They must know...right? Again, not a business person, but this seems pretty simple to me local businesses (again, there is more than one violator).
Well, thank you for listening to me vent. I hope for change, but don't expect it. (~Kev)
