Let me count the ways.
Thanksgiving is by and large a 4 days holiday for a lot of people, because there are a lot of people off on the day after thanksgiving stores started having big Christmas sales on that day to entice people to come shop with them. Because people would come shop with them they started having competition as other stores jumped on the bandwagon Then it just kept escalating until it was a national event BLACK FRIDAY
Now every year a bunch of idiots bundle up and go stand in-line for really cheap prices of crap they don’t need.
Only those of us who have worked retail know what a horrible day this day is.
When I worked retail I had to go to bed really early on thanksgiving just so I could get up to be at the store at 4 in the morning for the doors to open at 6. You can tell it’s been a while since stores nowadays open at midnight or stay open 24 hours or even now open on Thanksgiving.
Is it just me or are the sales just not as awesome as they once were either.
Which I think that this is just because the Black Friday thing isn’t so odd anymore, so the sales are not as drastic. It’s become really mainstream.
My 2nd year out of retail I decided to go shopping the day after Christmas and see what the big deal is. Wow. Will never do that again. People are rude and morals are left at the door just to get an extra 50 bucks off a TV. Humanity is sold at the price of the newest gizmo and widget. Sadly none of this will ever change. We will never get together as a people and boycott Black Friday because we can never get together as a people. Someone will always ruin it for the others.
I say damn the brick and mortar stores.
Wait a week order it online and in the meantime eat more pie. But that’s just me
