Ah, with the Thanksgiving festivities winding down, it is now time to prepare for the highly anticipated Black Friday nightmare! *shivers* I am not one for crowds; in fact, any other day of the year I avoid masses of people at all costs. However, there is something inviting about fighting a slew of people for that one gift at a ridiculously low price! This is the one day where my inner ‘ninja’ comes out, ready for a challenge. See, I have an advantage at being 4 ft 11 in tall; I instantly go into ‘sneak attack’ mode, sniping items from people before they even register what happened! (They literally don’t see me coming)
One thing that I absolutely will not do…stand in a line for hours only HOPING to get a specific item! Now, we know that most places have the one, awesome deal that no one can refuse; but the kicker is this: THEY ONLY HAVE TWO IN STOCK! No thank you, not for me! Wal-Mart is the worst for setting up people with the hype and becoming the kill-joy, because in reality they only have a handful of certain items in stock. In the end, those who are in charge of the inventory control are getting a good laugh! Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy finding an awesome deal, but I personally feel that Black Friday is a deceptive marketing strategy. (Duh, right?) It is designed to make everyone crazy, completely messing with the whole mindset. I have seen some of the nicest people turn straight psycho on this shopping day. Pure insanity!
One thing is for sure, this girl doesn’t play the psycho shopper game. I am only out to have a good time!
Well, I suppose that I have rambled enough this Thanksgiving eve. Here’s to hoping that everyone had a fantastic day filled with good eats, laughter, and fellowship with family and friends! If you attempting the late night shopping as I am, be safe and try to make the most of it! This was my Black Friday breakdown and I thank you for stopping by. I hope to see you on Sunday for my next Six Sentence post! Bye now.
