Nope, I am planting my butt on the couch.

     I will not be leaving the house today.  I refuse to go anywhere near a store on Black Friday.

     I had to work many a Black Friday when I was a retail manager.  I hated it then and I hate it even more now.  I don’t know how many of you hard-core bargain hunters are aware that most of the people working in those stores you throng to are there not from choice but because it is ‘work the day or get fired.’

     Oh yes, while you get to enjoy your time off retail workers don’t get the time off.  Keep this in mind when you are dragging your feet at closing time on Christmas eve too.  They can’t leave until you get the heck out of the freaking store.  Are the bargains really worth it?

  1. Love reading your blog. I agree, not participating in Black Friday. I am, however, participating in Small Business Saturday! Trying to do all local/small business this year!!

  2. I haven’t stepped inside a store or mall since the 70’s and THAT one time was pure accident. I forgot it was Black Friday. Haven’t been back since and I don’t do the day after Christmas either. I’ll get my bargains on a day they don’t jack up the price only to put it “on sale” tyvm.
