Black Friday

You know, I like shopping as much as anyone, especially during sales
for bargains. BUT, this Black Friday nonsense has really gotten out of
hand. Stores opening at 5 or 6 in the morning, and people camped out
and standing in line to make sure they among the first ones in! Sheer
madness and lunacy. I can almost guarantee y'all that come mid -
December, when the retailers see that their sales and projections are
down, their numbers not what they expected, that big sales and
bargains will be readily available to draw folks in, and you won't have
to wake up at 5 am and stand in line to get them! Which is precisely
why any shopping I haven't done online or by catalogue will be
completed around Dec. 15-20 or so, still plenty of time to get them
wrapped and handed out. Speaking of catalogues, my mailbox has
been just stuffed to the gills lately with them, and I would say about
90% of them from stores I have NEVER ordered from, and never
will. A waste of paper and the mailman's muscle power!

Don't forget those tax dollars paying the mailman overtime because he's delivering all those catalogues to people everywhere!
