Default Black Friday....

Being medically retired I spend a lot of wasted time in front of the television. I'll go to the casting shed when I can, but for the last month or so I haven't been able to go and do anything that would consume over 10 minutes, so most of the time I'm on the recliner.

After watching innumerable advertisements I have come to the conclusion that Black Friday has a whole new meaning.... Watch the ads and see.....

I don't watch commercials. I have two ad blockers on my computer and record the stuff I want to watch on TV so I can fast forward thru commercials.

We just hunker down and don't come out on Black Friday. We don't care for the lightning life of the city. And Black Friday is a lightning storm.

That's the one day in the year that I absolutely refuse to leave the house.


Graybeard has the right idea about commercials. Record TV and fast forward thru them.

The "Mute" button is one of the greatest inventions in all of time.

I consider "Black Friday" discrimination and racism. There should be a white Saturday for restitution.

I used to work for Walmart. The week leading up to black Friday and several days after were the pits. Formerly decent people pushing and shoving, some taking things they wanted out of someone elses cart, fistfights, one man actually dove theough several people to wrap his arms around a computer he wanted, others fighting over the same item. All that crap is sored in numerous trailers in the back lot, then has to be pulled and stocked at the same time. Employees should get combat pay. One guy was moving but not looking and ran right into my chest and bounced off. CHARLIE.

i don't doubt any of this ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

i haven't been to one in a long time and won't if i can help it.
the last time was to get a cheap microwave, and needless to
say they were out by the time i could get parked and inside.
i figured out folks were grabbing stuff just to be grabbing it
and were grabbing things they really didn't need or want just
so they could say they had one and someone else didn't. i
got behind one lady and her kids that had grabbed up one of
the sale microwaves and she didn't want it at all and she had
one of her kids set it out of the cart so she would have room
to grab something else she didn't want, and i grabbed it up
and got in line.
i don't think i'd go through that mess again even if they did
have microwaves for $20.00 again. i think i'd as soon pay
regular price.

all that mess just shows how we're going away from being
civilized and heading back toward more primitive behavior

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

Honor the Texas flag;I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas,
one state under God, one and indivisible.
