Black Friday - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Just wanted to say to everyone here who plans on shopping on Black Friday, don't trample over people at Target and Wal-Mart just to get some item that you want, a lot of people were hurt last Black Friday and one person was killed. Please be charitable and patient and don't give into this barbarian horde mentality.

My neighbor was stabbed walking out of EB games with the last PS3 two years ago. =P
I don't see what the big deal is with Black Friday. Just sit at home and wait for Cyber Monday to happen.

Wow, that's horrible. It just goes to show the disgusting level that materialism has seeped into the minds of people who are willing to murder someone over something ridiculous as a video-game console. I watched some of the videos of people at Target last year where multiple people got stomped into the ground, one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen. It makes me wonder how crazy people are going to act if the economy ever collapsed. There is something to be said for "Love thy neighbor as thyself" in these cases because when you don't these are the things that occur, sheer barbarianism.

Here are my thoughts on Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals, for what it's worth:

Remember, you are up against giant mobs of people in real life and online who wait and stalk these "door buster" deals. If it's a highly sought after item or ranks high in popularity, assuming it even goes on sale for a deep discount, chances are unlikely that they will have enough of it to go around for everyone - it comes down to a matter of luck. Ask yourself if it is really worth your time (especially sleep), effort, and frustration to save a few bucks.

My opinion is that if you have the money now to buy what you want, you might as well do it now. The potential money you may, or may not, save in a few months will not make up for the time you will lose waiting around for deals to happen.
