American Flag

I came across this video on Facebook that is a compilation of Black Friday shopping horrors from previous years. I recognize some of the footage while others are new to me. All of them are horrifying. No cheap item is really worth risking your life over. Really, it’s not.

Despite this post, I’m sure there are people who are waiting outside in the cold and darkness for the stores to put certain items on sale in the wee hours of the morning. In the meantime I’ll be sleeping in my nice warm bed under a crocheted afghan or two. (The local weather report is calling for below freezing temperatures overnight.) At least I won’t have to worry about my face showing up in any future “Black Friday madness” videos.

Of course that’s not to mention that this year a number of chain stores (Walmart, Kmart, Target, Kohl’s, Staples) are actually making their employees forgo Thanksgiving altogether by being opened as early as 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Nothing’s sacred in the U.S. anymore.

No amount of bargains is going to get me inside of a store at this time. Especially after not watching this.
