The following have been naughty (holiday commercials I've seen on TV before veteran's day):

10/31 - Best Buy
11/03 - Infinity Car
11/03 - Home Shopping Network
11/03 - Walmart
11/04 - K-Mart
11/05 - Glade Air Freshener
11/05 - Target
11/05 - Lincoln Car
11/06 - Kohl's
11/07 - Big Lots
11/08 - Lowe's
11/08 - Chex Mix
11/08 - Chase Bank
11/09 - IHOP
11/09 - Pet Smart
11/10 - Home Depot
11/10 - Mercedes-Benz
11/10 - Pier 1

None of the above will get any of my holiday shopping dollars. Too bad, really, I had planned on buying the missus a Mercedes.

I was planning on Chex Mix at 45th Anniversary party too. Looks like it's back to Chito's.

A bit off topic, but I've been hearing about stores starting their Christmas bargains on Thanksgiving, to beat the competition by a day. Why not just start the day before Thanksgiving, and give the employees Thanksgiving itself off?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I think it's on topic. Shameful. I saw a commercial for some store that was going to be open at 5AM on TG morning, a full day ahead, like you said.

I would never boycott Walmart, I love them. They delivered
my computer free, as they do everything I order from them.

Because the shoppers can't come out the day before - they're at their OWN jobs...
