    Am I the ONLY person not going shopping on Black Friday?

    As a former retail worker,I know how totally insane it is on that particular day. For the life of me,I cannot figure out why people would drive themselves crazy pushing and shoving and attempting to actually buy anything on that one day. It's not like they are going to run out of clothing or shoes or electronics or whatever. It'll all still be there the next day,the next week, the end of the month.

    Am I nuts for not going shopping that day, or just a little more sane than the rest of you?

    nope you are definately NOT the lone ranger on not doing the Black Friday thing..did it once...NEVER AGAIN it was a madhouse.. Im gonna eat leftovers and play puter lump!!!!!

    and ive seen it from the workers POV, Security at MainPlace Mall used to DREAD BLACK FRIDAY.. some would actually chicken out and call off of their shifts..but I showed up..after all thats where some of my classic mall security stores come from...after all, who could forget the woman walking down the mall on the lower level in NOTHING but a mans long white T-shirt and flip flops..or the woman who lost her car in the parking lot that SHE DIDNT DRIVE.. she was dropped off and FORGOT!

    YAAY Black Friday! LOL

    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    When you say Black Friday, are you referring to the first day of Christmas shopping after Turkey Day? Or the day Disney animators were told that they had to Re-do Aladdin from scratch?

    Re: Am I the ONLY person not going shopping on Black Friday?

    The sale prices are the only reason I would do it. When you have lots of people to shop for, every little bit you can save helps.

    If its something you are going to buy anyways, IMO, you are crazy NOT to try and get the best deal you can.

    But for some people the savings are not worth the hassel, it always has been for me.

    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Re: Am I the ONLY person not going shopping on Black Friday?

    I never go shopping on Black Friday. I hate the malls with crowds, I usually am doing something fun with my family on that day and I don't really buy all that much stuff that would justify me wasting my time like that.

    Now, if I could get same deals on the internet then I might do some shopping over coffee. It just depends on if what I want is on sale.

    There's always gonna be another sale and my sanity is worth more than wasting my morning not sleeping from the tryptiphan induced coma from the day before and dealing with the crowds and maybe saving an extra few bucks.

    You couldn't pay me to go shopping on Black Friday! I hate the crowds around the holidays anyway, but shopping that day alone would put me over the edge .
