SPECIAL REPORT: BLACK FRIDAY
The Friday after Thanksgiving used to be a day to sleep late, spend time with family, and friends; finish those leftovers that are always better the next day anyway.
However, it seems like the past two or three years, Black Friday has taken over as the thing to do after Thanksgiving dinner. What in your right mind would make you stand in line for hours in the middle of the night, cold, with hundreds of people ready to trample you or cover you with pepper spray, just to get a deal on a TV? It doesnâ€™t make sense to me.
With a month to Christmas, you canâ€™t tell me that there wonâ€™t be more dealsâ€”noâ€”better deals than the ones on Blac Friday. Stores canâ€™t possibly risk the potential loss.
Then thereâ€™s Cyber Mondayâ€¦, which to me makes absolutely no sense. Especially because I didnâ€™t see anything different on any website since Friday.
What is the point of this article? I donâ€™t know. Whatâ€™s the point of missing much-needed rest, sleep, and time with family for a flat screen TV that you can probably get for a better deal within the next month anyway? Itâ€™s just one of those things.
