People go kind of nuts on Black Friday. The sales, the early hours, the “holiday spirit,” if you will, all make people do some pretty absurd things just to get that flat screen TV for 40% off or that Xbox game their kids want so badly. It’s like Jingle All The Way–but WAY worse.
You could say that, sure, everyone is just trying to be the best Santa they can be. After all, Santa himself wouldn’t stop at anything to get those on the Nice List what they want. But between shopping cart heists, incidents of pepper spray and mace, stabbings and shootings over flat screen TVs and toys at Toys R Us, actually participating in Black Friday could seriously spell the end of your holiday not the beginning.
We’re not saying don’t get out there and get the deals. We’re more saying, do it online. You know, from the comfort and safety of your own home, where all you’ll have to worry about is a bad server or Internet connection.
Really, guys. People have died.
