Monday Morning Question!...

         

Do you intend to shop on Black Friday?

my answer:  I would rather be hit over the head a hundred times with a hammer.  No, I would rather jump off a bridge.  No, I would rather be eaten by a pack of wolves (or eat the pack of wolves...), well, you get the picture.  I HATE shopping as it is, and to fight clawing, fighting people for merchandise seem ludicrous.  I don't care if it is lower-priced.  It will be lower-priced the next day, too.  How about you ?  If you do this as an entry in your journal, please come back and leave your entire entry URL so we all can read!  Thanks!

  1. No. Thankfully, I don't need anything that badly. Mean, nasty people with long, black claws & bright, green teeth roam the earth on that day. I try to stay inside with the blinds drawn.

  6. We open at 5am... I have to be there at 4:45am, do you think I will be able to get in.... Our morning specials last until 11am. I have all the shoes ready in the stockroom. My manager and a team of four will stay til 11pm on Wednesday getting them all set up on tables. How long do you think they will remain on the tables on Friday morning, lol.... I plan on standing on the edge of the department directing and bringing out more shoes to sell to the masses. I work my butte off all year, on Friday I plan to just sit back and enjoy the show and laugh at these crazy people eager for a good deal... lol... But I'm sure I will find myself running around like a crazy person trying to assist everyone at once...
    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  8. There is NO WAY I will go shopping on Black Friday.  I don't do it every year.  Once in a awhile.  I did 2 yrs. ago for a TV, got one of the last two left (or so I was told), waited in long lines for this "4 hour only sale".  Later that night I went back to Walmart with my brother and they had a whole bunch of the TV's out on the floor at the same price I paid at the "4 hour only sale" and there were NO long lines.  They trick us!  I tell ya!  LOL  Happy Thanksiving!
    Hugs,

  14. you know dad and mom were not gifty as we grew up so in their tradition I dont give that many gifts for christmas, its kinda sad lol but I wont be shopping no way in stores that day but might check for hot deals online for fun stuff. I think many online stores offer the same sort of discounts starting that day so I might shop online a bit... :)

    happy monday sweetie! love Deirdre

  15. I'm with you!  I'd rather pay full price and have a tooth pulled while I'm waiting in line to pay than to push through the crowds and deal with the throngs of eager, ill mannered shoppers.  I get panic stricken just thinking about it.  LOL
    Hugs,  Kathy

  17. I'd rather be in the Ron Popeil infomercial audience (8 hours long!) then go shopping on Black Friday!  No, I am NOT going shopping on Black Friday!  Perish the thought!

  18. Your answer says it perfectly.  I HATE BLACK FRIDAY!!!  It's Commercial Christmas at its finest, and MY Christmas season doesn't start until December 3rd.
