Did You Do Black Friday?
As I mentioned on this page last week, I feel that Thanksgiving gets the short end of the stick from retailers, when it comes to celebrating the holiday. Retailers go from tearing down their Halloween Displays to immediately putting up their Christmas Decorations with little or no acknowledgement of Thanksgiving. (The only retailers that really spotlight Thanksgiving are Grocery Stores, because the Thanksgiving Holiday IS a money maker for them). Thanksgiving SHOULD get more Love from retailers, but they’re in so much of a hurry to get Christmas running with their Black Friday Sales, that Thanksgiving does get neglected. In fact, every year, it seems like “Black Friday” gets earlier and earlier. Heck, some stores don’t even let you finish your Thanksgiving Dinner with Family and Friends because they’re enticing you with Black Friday Sales as early as Thanksgiving EVENING in some cases. It is because of THIS reason, out of principal, that I DON’T DO BLACK FRIDAY!
Now, many folks are willing to stand in line for HOURS, just to save a few bucks on a Toaster or a Vacuum Cleaner, but not this guy. I’d rather sit out Black Friday, and spend the extra $$$’s on a regular shopping day, than to put up with a MOB of Psycho Shoppers throwing fists and elbows just to get a deal. If you want further proof, check out the video above for some Black Friday Fun! Please know, that I’m not judging you if you participate in Black Friday, knock yourself out. But also know that if you do participate in Black Friday, you DO risk the chance of getting yourself KNOCKED OUT!
So, when it comes to Black Friday, I say NO!
However, when it comes to Cyber Monday, I say :”Where’s My Credit Card?!“
