When did we start to become so uncivilized again?

Illegals blocking a marching band during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is not the way to win friends and influence people.

Shopping as a blood sport?

I'd never even heard of Blech Friday until a couple of years ago. I guess it's kinda like "Boxing Day" but with actual boxing.
I'm surprised there hasn't been a shooting over a toy or a microwave or whatever. No, don't tell me...

Lor' old buddy, those videos were absolutely depressing. Thanks. :(
Happy Whatever, Shoppers.

I actually think it would be funny to stage a Black Friday fight with someone. Fight over something silly, like a box of cereal.

maybe like these guys:

or better yet. fill up your cart with a stack of black friday 'specials' and then hide them throughout the store. hey, it's not like you're stealing them.
:coy:

My TV is older and still working so I've resisted buying a larger and better system (OLED, 4K, etc) even though the prices are pretty reasonable. At this point I'm just waiting until this one stops working. I have a hard time upgrading when the current model is doing what it's supposed to and will never understand the people who camp out for any of it. TVs, phones, or anything else.

I spent £11.00 on three CD's and bought a burger.

Wowsers!

And yes. I wanted those albums!

Definitely didn't feel the need to indulge myself in stuff I didn't actually want before today.

Ha, the same with my laptop i'm using right now. It still works, why spend the money on a new one if I don't have to yet? Got my first smartphone only two and a half years ago. I had the same flip phone for about eight years before that. People kept saying I should upgrade and get something new and I always asked why should I when this one still works? I only got rid of it because my phone company forced users who had older phones to upgrade to 4G phones. That flip phone ruled. It was still worth $100 when I turned it in, so I got my smartphone for free.

I hate Black Friday. I feel trapped in my house.

I’d rather listen to Caress of Steel on an endless loop than shop today.
I went out early and picked up a pancake compresser and three finish nailers for $129.  For the same price I got a sweet new vacuum cleaner for the new house.  Wifey went back later and got a screaming deal on a washer/dryer set.

My first Black Friday!
