Black Friday!

What the heck is wrong with us? How can we go from a day of giving thanks to a day of fighting for the last Barbie doll on the shelf? This Black Friday thing is just about the worst showing of who we are as a nation. Retailers have duped us into spending the day after Thanksgiving running around grabbing deals on stuff we don’t need at prices they tell us are only available today. Of course if today doesn’t go well for those retailers they will just advertise an even better deal tomorrow. I get it that we are a consumer based country, and without a good season for retailer many of them will have a really tough time the rest of the year, but it shouldn’t come down to a piranha style feeding frenzy. Lets agree to treat each other well today, and if someone beat us to the deal, we will behave as we believe others should treat us!
