Is it just me or does anyone else think that using Veterans Day to promote 6 easy pays tonight is just not appropriate?  Let us honor our Veterans on Veterans Day.  If you are having a sale, at least give the Veterans a discount like other restaurants etc.


@Plain Ann  Veteran's Day sales are all over the place, not just at the Q.

 

How would the Q determine who is a veteran in order to offer a discount????

 

I understand your sentiment and I do appreciate it, more than you know.

 

Yet there will be folks all across the board who will not even blink an eye at Veteran's Day;  and there will be folks who recognize what our vets stand for. 

 

It's the way it is, whether we like it or not.

Veterans Day is a day of celebration!

Much akin to Fourth of July. 

 

I have a feeling many confuse Memorial Day w/ Veterans Day.

Every. Single. Year. I see the confusion.

Re: Veterans Day Sale Tonight

I think it is tacky and disrespectful.  I so admire that our country gives the actual day of observance on the day of the anniversary.  This year Monday is the official day but if the 11th falls on a Wed., for example then that is the day.  We do not allow Veteran's Day to just be a another three day weekend unless it is close to a weekend.  These men and women fought for us.

This year November 11 falls on Sunday...and it is observed 

on the following business day, November 12 Monday.

 

Many official US public holidays have a ‘floating’ observance.

They have for years.

If we don’t float it, it would mean Veterans would be 

punished by not observing them on the next business day.

Kinda backwards.

Yes I know but if comes on a day during the week the following Monday is not used for a three day weekend.  Verteran's Day is special.

So...having it fall on a weekend and NOT observing it with a 

day off is more respectful?

Not at all, I am just glad they have not turned into a three day weekend every single year.  It is not a day to stay home from work.
