  1. This isn’t surprising considering how many brawls break out over the last whatever (oops, we forgot to mention only 3 per store), fighting over parking spaces and just plain being trampled by crowds.
    Camping out on the sidewalk overnight isn’t necessary (was it ever, seriously) anymore with online shopping.

    I do miss the Christmas displays with stores going all out. Now the budgets only stretches to extra security, I guess. If I want to see the antics of my fellow humanoids on Black Friday, I’ll wait for the highlights to show up on YouTube or Live PD.

    Yes, I have become cynical.

  2. Some years ago, my sister and I went shopping on Black Friday. We were at Wal-Mart, where we had been the week before, and noticed that many of the things we wanted were NOT on sale (mainly clothing) and actually cost more than they did the week before. They even tried to charge me full price for something that was listed in their sale papers at a discount.

    We ended up spending a lot more than we expected and we really didn’t get that much. So, we made the decision then that we would never again do Black Friday, and we haven’t. We’re not going to camp out to get that ONE TV they have on the shelf, especially not after watching WM employees clearing the shelves of all the discounted electronics they weren’t going to sell at a discount.

    Black Friday is a ripoff.
