I know that the shift starts on thursday but technically i'm sure they're counting it as black friday shift so you're screwed. What do you need off on thursdays for anyway? Maybe they know you won't be doing it that day because of the holiday so they put you on.
The schedule can get fucked up a bit from black friday through new years day, so keep on checking it. Retailers need all the help they can get this time of year so I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't the last time the shcedule gets messed up.
Normally I have school on Thursday but they might know schools closed. It just sucks because I won't be having a Thanksgiving day dinner with anyone. My family is still going away with their family but since thats a hour away and I dont have a car I am screwed. Ill end up having fast food or something.
