Black Friday

It's depressing. I hate it. I can't stand the way people act absolutely insane over a few things, some random crap! I don't CARE if it's a $2 waffle maker or the awesomest TV or what the heck ever. Yeah. Great deal. NOT great enough to pepper spray someone. And no matter how cheap or awesome those pants are? They're still PANTS and therefore not worth punching someone over.

I just...can't get it. I do understand that the weekend after Thanksgiving is likely to be the first time a lot of people seriously consider their Christmas shopping...but until we all put a halt to the CRAZY consumerism and remember our humanity....I will be depressed on this day.

Not to mention, the baby got dairy, somehow, AND has a cold. Unless the dairy is just making him congested, which is totally possible. Probably I shouldn't think too hard about anything with all that going on.

But seriously, folks. It might be fun to go shopping...but have a little human decency. Put people first. And then consider whether you want there to be ANYTHING left for your grandkids.

That is all.

just another case of a commercial windfall's being turned into something insanely consumptive. So everybody is off work on the day after Thanksgiving, and it gives you a day to shop during the day instead of after work. Opportunity knocks,and retailers respond. If only Christmas weren't just about giving and receiving presents, maybe there would be a limit to the greed and compulsion.
