Black Friday. Those two words together just give me the willies. It really makes me shudder in fear. Sorry, but I am not a fan. I’d rather just sit home this morning on my day off with a hot pot of coffee and in front of my computer while reading about all the crazies battling it out in Thunderdome for some cheap gadget, gizmo, or ugly sweaters.
I refuse to shop on Thanksgiving eve or today just to save a few bucks. I’m sorry, but it’s all over-hyped and just crazy.
Not worth it to me to save some money. I see images and scenes of all those idiots swarming into stores and fighting over products and laugh. What happened to family and friends spending the day together on their day off? Even more so I also think it’s wrong to shop on Thanksgiving. You have to feel bad for those who work in retail and are stuck working during this madness. There will be a ton of sales going on as stores get desperate to hit revenue goals over the next month. Why rush out on the holiday to save a few dollars?
As for me, I had a wonderful Thanksgiving stuffing my face into a food coma, drinking wine, relaxing and laughing with good friends. I had no inclination to rush out early to hit the stores on a holiday. I think that is just wrong. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m a bit old fashioned that way. Life is short, and family/friend time is valuable to me. You can always go shopping but it’s not always as easy to see friends and family. Before you know it many will be gone, but stores will always remain.
Did anyone notice that the crazy Target lady is not on TV this year? In a way I miss her nutty commercials. She was deranged but kind of funny. I think their new commercials for this holiday season suck. Blah.
Hey, there’s always Cyber Monday! What else is there to do when we go back to work next week?
