I did something this year I swore I wouldn’t do again. I hit the stores Thanksgiving night for the pre-Black Friday (Black Thursday) sales.
Oh. My. God. If you are short (like moi) you’d better go in prepared to fight for what you want. I used to think they called it Black Friday because the stores made their years profit that day. Ha! They call it that because the shoppers are bruised when it’s over.
The seemingly sane people you’ve been conversing with for hours while you wait will turn into fang bearing creatures with a hunger for the thirty (or less or more) items up for the huge sale. However I am proud to say I was determined and stood my ground (thanks to the help of one brave soldier who gave me a hand, as in pulling me out of the bottom of the pile with arms laden with stuff.)
Will I do it again? Uh, no.
But then I’ve said those words before. What about you? Did you power shop on the mega sale weekend? Fight the crowds or play it sane and order it all online?
