am i the only one who has no desire to go out shopping on black friday? i have never gone, ever. sharing this makes me feel like i must be a stuffy old scrooge. i know how popular the day is and i usually get pretty excited about the same things that most people do.
seriously though, i can not imagine what could possibly make me even try to venture out there. it's not the middle of the night thing, i'm a night owl. i do love to shop and never turn down a great deal. i love going to the mall during the holidays when it's decorated and christmas carols are playing, i'm all about the christmas spirit.
the reason i'm such a scrooge? i think it's the people! every year i hear about the crowds, the fights, people being trampled and was it last year that a worker was actually killed? those type of things make images in my mind of obnoxious, awful people acting like fools. i know that sounds mean, but seriously, people have lost their lives during these sales. for what? so someone can save a few bucks or get that hard to find toy they should have bought a month or two ago? and to add insult to injury the shoppers get mad when their shopping gets interrupted because someone had the nerve to be trampled to death?
so i'll be the one person who is staying home on friday morning. just like i always do. what i will be doing though is staying up late after thanksgiving and checking out the black friday deals on the interwebz, in the comforts of home. i'm not that much of a scrooge!
for all of you peeps who are brave enough to venture out on friday...be careful! and i hope y'all score some fabulous deals!
