Well it's that time of year again. The wild and crazy BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING *insert eerie music here* is back!What I want to know is do YOU shop on Black Friday? Do you actually get up and the butt crack of dawn, and try to push through all the millions of people to get to those few special items? Or do you shop online for black Friday specials?
A few years back my mother, sister and I attempted to do our first (and now last) black Friday shopping. The day started out great, not too early cause lets face it, I am sooooooo not a morning person. But headed out , going to a few stores here and there. we never went for the BIG sales because usually there was like 5 of that items and they were gone before the roosters were even awake. We pretty much just looked for some of the other sale items. Which I will admit there were a few. But as we were leaving one of the stores , we were standing next to my moms car loading stuff in, when a lady walked up crammed her shopping cart ( yes I said CRAMMED ) into the side of my moms car then proceeded to turn and walk to her car as if she did nothing wrong. I was seriously like WTF lady!?!? *insert many , many, MANY choice words here* She actually looked at us like she had no clue what she had done worng. I was like " Does this LOOK like a cart return to you?!?! I think it looks like a car!!! *
Now I am not a violent person by any means. I am more of the laid back, why can't we all be friends kinda gal. yes I know this is where you all want to "insert the gaging sound" right. LOL but really I am really easy to get along with. But OMG what the hell is wrong with people! So from then on we have all decided we will NOT EVER do that again. Some people have just ruined that day completely. Some people become pushy, some become rude. People really get their butts run over!
Its supposed to be a fun day. At least that's what I think about it. A way to spend the day with friends , family, and have fun shopping for some great sales. So I have come to the conclusion I am going to try Black shopping via the Internet this year. So my questions to you are:
Do you Shop black Friday online?
If so what sites do you shop at?
Do you think you get as good of sales on-line as you do in stores?
Thank you for letting me rant, and to pick your brain!
Start Christmas early!
