Here we go again with the beginning of the holiday shopping season. The emails for the upcoming deals for the alleged black friday shopping day (Let's face it, with most of all the stores starting around 5-6 pm on Thanksgiving day, Friday is just another day).
I'm kinda disappointed in the corporate offices for the major retailers taking away the Thanksgiving holiday away from the employees so they can have show a profit this weekend.
My heart goes out to
since she works for one of THE biggest toy stores and she's already feeling the pandemonium and stress from the holiday hours and seasonal work load. (Hey Olga, any chance of getting a 25% in store coupon so I can get a 31 inch Dark Knight ??
My daughter already figured most folks will scrap the lunch dinners on Thanksgiving day so they can shop then eat a late dinner.
At least Bass Pro Shops will keep their black friday deals ON friday by not opening up till 6am.
Since my kids will be with my ex and her family for Thanksgiving that evening, I'll probably go out and try to score Underworld:Evolution for $2-3 and maybe the Avengers for cheap unless I can find them cheap online.
I'm on vacation all week and after working 55-62 hours a week for the last two months, I need a break.
Let's just remember that the holiday stress is self-inflicted when it comes to shopping. It is a joyous time of year and we lose perspective of what it all means. Not trying to get the biggest flat screen tv for the price of a 25 inch either!!
I have 31 inch box tv that still works great and don't need another one.
To everyone here, TRY and have a Happy Thanksgiving and do something a little retro and fun--watch the Macy's parade!!
Let me know, if you want to, are you black friday shopping on thanksgiving or staying home?
my friend, take a breather when you can and remember, enjoy the holidays when you can because "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"
