BLACK FRIDAY

This appeals to my warped sense of humour. Have you seen how people go crazy, and fight over junk, as if their lives depended on purchasing more cheap Chinese crap they don't really need. It's a mad world and getting worse.

I agree, it's totally mad.
I bought two similar sweaters in John Lewis and one was twenty pounds less than the other.
I didn't know this until I went to pay for them, so I asked why one was cheaper and it was because it was "last year's colour". So crazy.

lol! I went shopping on Black Friday once and actually enjoyed it, but I'd rather stay home and eat leftovers :)

Here's a thought: give yourself a bigger house by decluttering and a pay raise by not shopping for recreation.

It scares me to be honest! Have a lovely week☺

I lay claim to the fact that i have never ever and will never ever shop Black Friday or Black Week Friday ever - and even more I will not shop on the weekend after Friday - ...ever.

Perish the thought to join in such madness. Valerie

People are idiots lol...I have never nor will I ever shop on Black Friday...in fact we don't even have that here in Canada, though they try to imitate it for marketing purposes! I hate crowds and prefer to just shop online when I can. That image reminded me that Stallone has a new Rambo out!

It's amazing and it doesn't seem to just be on Black Friday but rather a constant push to get people to buy clutter. As for Black Friday, back when I owned a blanket business (full-time, I sewed and sold blankets at shows), we did do the Black Friday at the fabric shoppe. And it was worth it. But ... it was a fun atmosphere. And before that, I worked at said fabric shoppe and on Black Friday, and we just had a lot of fun. Really fun. Women laughing, smiling, getting fun fabric and crafts. A true hoot and half.

We really have to think do we really need anything, it is crazy.

This is so true! I have never shopped Black Friday deals and never will. Guess this proves, it takes ALL KINDS to make the world (or something like that). Thanks for sharing this smile-maker. :)

I've read about the insanity of shopping. I avoid all places by not shopping.

The only store you will catch me in on Black Friday -- MAYBE -- is the grocery store. I hate that tradition.

Tom said...

...Black Friday is a day to stay home!!!

Kay said...

No Black Friday deals for me.

Chris Lally said...

Hahahahaha! I don't even go to the mailbox on Black Friday.

Linda said...

Any shopping I do on Black Friday will be online. Unlike Rocky, I am not a fighter!

Iris Flavia said...

And afterwards they go to a fancy restaurant and spend money I would not dare to.
Here you only have this online. Which is too much already... (at least as far as I know, that is!).

Hello,

I stay away from the stores on Black Friday. Some people do go crazy, pushing and shoving. I am not really big on shopping any time. Enjoy your day, wishing you a good week ahead!

Every day I read the news (on the Internet) convinces me that the world has gone completely mad. Egged on by gravy trainers and crooks in the House of Commons plus corporate greed, who can blame consumers for wanting some of the action - even if it kills them.

Sue said...

It's not even a day now is it, it's black Friday week!! x

sage said...

I avoid Black Friday and will probably spend most of the day working on my speech for a St. Andrew’s Banquet on Saturday :)

i agree that people are crazy for stuff and don't even show self respect while behaving as mad
i would stay mile away from such madness

William Kendall said...

Of course, you can also compare Black Friday crowds to zombie movies.

I can never understand the consumerist madness that overtakes people.

I can't say i won't ever shop on Black Friday but i can say that the only shopping I ever have or ever will do on that day is for groceries, newspapers and possibly a book from a local 2nd hand shop
