Savings Shmavings

I saved. By not shopping. Saved my sanity.


“Blog about Black Friday”, my wife says. And I was all like, ummm…why? Nobody cares about Black Friday. It’s over.


And that’s when the feeling of relief set in. BAM! It hit me. Yep, when I realized it was over. No more rude people. No cursing. Shoving. Yelling. Arguing. Grabbing. Trampling. Black Friday is exactly that, a dark and evil time. All you people waiting in line for 6 hours - many of you deserve an ugly card. Yep, you. Because you feel like you’re entitled to something. Really?


Don’t be hatin’ on me for picking up the last thinger-bobber that you waited in line for, just because you stopped and grabbed a doo-hickey on the way in to save $2. You are owed nothing. Now, go put on your nice face, say you’re sorry, and be grateful. Remember “grateful”? You sure talked it up yesterday. I completely boycott Black Friday. There’s nothing in a retail store that’s worth dangling my sanity off of the crazy cliff for. I’d rather just jump. If you were part of the madness today, I hope you were civil.



Did you venture out in the chaos of Black Death Friday? If so, did you wait until the unruly mobs had cleared?

You should try it at least once. It's not as bad as you make it out. I go and try to have fun. If we get a deal we are happy, if not oh well. We saved almost $200 and didn't have to act insane to get our savings but I will admit I don't try to compete for things when I know other people are camping out and that the store only has 10 vouchers. That is even a bit too ridiculous for me.
