Everywhere you go, it’s Christmas. Lights are lit, trees are up, and decorations are hung….
… And it’s not even Thanksgiving yet.
I’m all for the holidays, but Xmas is ALREADY a MONTH LONG… (Hello..! THAT MUSIC?!?!??) So, can we please NOT have 3 MONTHS of it?
The scariest day of the year, BLACK FRIDAY, is upon us. 2 days away. YET, on my way out of Best Buy today, I see this:
I then read this online:
“Windy Lawrence of Mesquite, Texas made national headlines with her decision to camp out with her family in front of a Best Buy on Nov. 20, far ahead of most other shoppers preparing to wait for Black Friday sales.
“Last year we came and didn’t get anything we wanted,” Lawrence told Fox News. She is staying in the tent with her mother and young daughter, and has stocked up on food, water, sleeping bags and a heater as she waits. “We decided to come early this year so we can be sure to be the first ones to get in the door.”
“Lawrence told reporters she had her eye on a 42-inch television that will cost $199 at Best Buy on Black Friday 2011. By the time Nov. 23 rolled around, countless other consumers had joined her in tents at Mesquite and across America, and the same 42-inch TV has become one of Best Buy’s most anticipated items.”
IF MY PARENTS DID THAT TO ME, I WOULD KIL MYSELF. THAT IS TORTURE!!!!!!!! CHILD NEGLECT!!!!!! THIS IS CHILD CRUELTY!!!!!
There is even some sh*t online called “Occupy Best Buy” to “create a movement for all the “amazing deals”.
LISTEN UP PEOPLE: THIS IS CAPITALISM SCAMMING AT ITS BEST: THE MORE DEALS OUT THERE- THE MORE YOU THINK YOU’RE SAVING, BUT YOU SPEND MORE ANYWAY!!!
A week in the cold to get a TV for $199… TRAGIC. SAD. DESPERATE…… GROSS.
Here is an ad from West Elm:
Opening at 8am… (wow, an extra 2 hours) before the normal 10am opening time… WHY BOTHER?!
Here is one of my Faves this year. Nordstrom’s Black Friday advertising was this:
Which is so brilliant, and SO STUPID at the same time. FIRST: IT AGREES WITH EVERYTHING I’M SAYING!!! ONE HOLIDAY AT A TIME!!! WOO HOO!!!
