Sunday shopping woes...24/6 here...

I'm aggrevated today
at the fact I can't go buy anything....and I thought I'd ask and see if there is any other place left in the civilized world besides us that doesn't allow Sunday shopping. Yes, I'll admit, this is a small province with a population of less than a million, but it would be nice to buy something on a Sunday. The politicians won't allow it because there are still too many "Bible thumping" Catholic voters out there who apparently oppose it...go figure. Gas stations and drug stores are open, but thats it, everything else shuts down at midnight on Saturday, and re-opens at midnight on Sunday. This sux! No parts available for the weekend mechanic. As far as I know, every other province in Canada has already allowed sunday shopping, some have been that way for many years, but I was wondering about the US, and what the status is stateside. Oh well, I was just curious, and in the mood to rant this morning. Later folks.

Re: Sunday shopping woes...24/6 here...

We have lots of Catholics around here, all the shops are open on Sunday. Same when I was in San Diego, CA. Tons of Mexicans and Philippinos, Roman Catholic was the norm, Sunday shopping was totally common. Heck, even when I was in Pensacola, FL in the bible belt, where people would stand on the islands in the middle of the street and scream at you how your rock and roll music was condemning your soul to death, everything was open on Sunday. Sucks to be you.[img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

If I wasn't such a lazy ass I'd go buy my dad the air hose for his compressor I know he wants.[img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Just in case
I don't mean to offend any Catholics out there.....I happen to be Catholic myself, but I would still like to shop on Sunday. I just wanted to be sure nobody takes my post the wrong way.....i'm not "dissin" any religion. thanks.

Re: Sunday shopping woes...24/6 here...

i must be a heathen .. i work every holiday, work every sunday , and buy a six pack of beer at the local "QWUIKY MART" sunday after work . heck i would imagine i could go to the adult book store and buy some porno if i wanted on sunday . where does it say in the bible that it is ok to buy stuff at the drugstore but not at the local auto parts store ? what if your kids are sick and you need to get some medicine for them at the drugstore and the car is broke down? hmmmm... i guess its all a matter of interpretation of the written word.... just think corey, those lawmakers are saving you from certain condemnation to hell by keeping you out of the parts store on sunday. its kinda like making a law that says you HAVE to wear your seat belt or you HAVE to wear a helmet . they are just looking out for your best interests.... just on a spiritual level [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Agreed, Im Catholic, but c'mon! I think the Catholic voters could stay out of the stores on Sunday if they wish, but still 90% of them would be in there, me included. I went to a truckstop today to buy a cb mount and they're close sundays and holidays, what an inconvenience [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Sunday shopping woes...24/6 here...

I am Caotholic and even went to Catholic scchools. I do not go to church or practice anymore. When religion begins to interfere with other parts of life like shopping on a certain day, thats when I loose it. What the hell do they think. Are we in 1000 A.D. when all you did on Sunday was go to church? NO !! We have evolved and made huge advancements. I have no problem with people beleiveing and going to church. But to say nothing else can be done on that day. CMON.... Let me guess, it would be ok to have fun with a little boy on Sunday, though.... These people have to get a grip on life and wake up.... The Catholic faith has its faults, many of them. Why do they have the right to dictate a Sunday shopping spree when they cannot control their own preists........

Don't mean to offend anyone but it has gotten out of hand...
