It angers me when I see stores inciting crowds with deals they could give any day of the year. It pisses me off knowing that the money people think they’re saving really is just because those items have inevitably dropped in price to make room for newer models coming in. It really just drives me crazy that every year people fall for the same tricks over and over. When will people realize they don’t need to be told they need this stuff on this day? If people stopped shopping on Black Friday you know what would happen? you would still see those deals on ANY other given day.
The media will have you believe that it's our spending that gives the economy the boost it needs. Did you know the CEO's reap incredible benefits for bringing stores into the black? Meanwhile employees don't even get paid vacations or medical benefits. We don’t need to feel like we are the ones responsible for the way this economy has tanked. We don't need to feel like we need to spend, spend , spend! to make America great.
But let me know your thoughts on the matter
