Wondered what everybody thought about going out to eat on a Sunday. I know it's traditional baptist culture to go eat before or after church, maybe both in some rare cases. It's all viewed as innocent family time, especially since alot of people who go out to eat don't want to work, or even refuse to work, on a Sunday. However, I wanted to enlighten you in regards to the other end of the stick that you may or may not have considered before. By going out to eat on a Sunday, not only are you potentially forcing somebody to work on a Sunday against their will, but there's a good chance that you are forcing them to miss church. I say this because I used to be one of these people, I'm not just making stuff up. I was trying to put myself through college, working at a Shoney's (like Denny's) that had a breakfast buffet. I couldn't understand how those same people who were so adamant about not working on a Sunday could just pack the restaurant and force us to work. I did not have enough seniority to get a different schedule. Other jobs didn't pay as well so I'd have to work more hours, which would mess up college, and they were about the same situation on Sunday's anyway. It is my dream to open up my own restaurant, and my #1 rule is that no worker of mine will ever have to work a Sunday shift if they don't want to. I may actually just totally close it down on Sundays. To this day I won't go out to eat on a Sunday, I don't want to make other people work. Just wondering if anybody else feels the same way about this.
