Black Friday Lunacy

I went out and invested in some new clothes. I had very little difficulty getting around and purchasing what I wanted to, which surprised the shit out of me.

But I don't get what you're trying to say

Here in america, we have "black friday". The day after thanksgiving here in the states, is the beginning of the christmas shopping season. It is at this time where retaliers slash prices off items and it is their biggest shopping day of the year. And people just go to such fucking lows to push, shove, fight, and start trouble with other people in the lines, or in front of stores, and such over fucking shopping items just because they're priced like 50% off. You wanna see stupidity, look here for it.

And that's why I do my biggest shopping after christmas, and yet one reason why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year.

So here in the US, the day after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday. It's pretty much a day where all these retail stores decide to sell their merchandise dirt cheap in an attempt to get rid of their inventory and restock for the next year. This of course, draws in crowds of people for those "unbelievable prices" and thus makes shopping in those stores somewhat unbearable. There are even people lined up the day before just to get a jump on those Black Friday deals.

So what the person who started this post is trying to say is it's ironic that he wasn't bombarded with a ton of people pushing and shoving on Black Friday.

I went to Macys to get new shoes but the line stretched down from the 4th floor all the way out the door on the first floor -___-

It's pathetic how low people will go for a damn Wii. I didn't even have to go inside to see how long the check out line was. I refused to even set foot inside because of the simple fact that if someone shoved me there would be a huge altercation that neither party would want to be involved in.

I work at a major electronics store, and it sucked. I actually had some asshole come up to me and ask "What am I here to get?!' That guy look high on weed and gravy though. People we're fighting over shit, trying to steal, spilling thanksgiving left overs on the floor. It was horrible.

Yeah black friday is kind of crazy day of the entire year. I went to Walmart and got what I needed. I needed kitty litter, cat food, and something else. I got that and left. I actually spent my Black Friday online at Amazon.com. They had Dragon Ball Z season 6 for like 13 dollars with free shipping and handling. So that is what I spent on Black Friday 13 dollars :). I am trying to get the entire Dragon ball Z seasons since I have 1-5. Now, I got 6 and need 7-9. Then, get Dragon ball,gt, and kai. I am not as much as a Dragon Ball fan like I use to. I am a completionist and my collection needs to be completed. I am actually still on Season 3.
