The crazy holidays are upon us. Which means baking, shopping, wrapping, and entertaining. But nothing comes close to the event of the year, The one that gets people in the WORST holiday cheer… Yes I am talking about the shopping day of the year, Black Friday.
This day used to be the day that the family would go out and get the best deals for their pocket books. Today, it is the day for increased crimes and fights. I can’t believe the hostility that comes about on a day like Black Friday. Now it is even worse, it is the two day sales, the open at 11pm because opening at 4 am is just outrageous! That is way too late in the day, 4 am is for sissies… The lines are ridiculous, some people avoid the roads compeletly and just wait for the deals on cyber Monday. Whatever your strategy, it is planned shopping day for sure. I know of people who spend their Thanksgivings looking through the paper to find the best ads, so they can plan their day. Their first stop is who has the best deals, and who will have the best selection.
The infamous door busters are now becoming black eyes and pepper spray fiascos. I can’t believe such a “joyous” season has become the scariest day of year. I know that times are tough right now, but punching another soccer mom for your kids scooter is not the answer. I know it sounds crazy, but this sale will happen again on December 26. Johnny might not be able to open his present on Christmas Day, but he will survive, I swear. Plus the only lines are at cutomer service to return that scooter yournson really didn’t even want anyways.
So words of warning for next year, don’t bring pepper spray, or any other sort of unecessary weapon, just bring a smile on your face and get them the gift they really want… A gift card.
