Note-vember 4| REVIEW: Black Friday!!

Note-vember is almost over but how can I finish it without mentioning the phenomenon that is...Black Friday !

Today, westerners took to their high streets and shopping malls, and trampled, floored and elbowed their way to find discount glory. From MacBooks to washing machines, it was all up for grabs.
The one thing that stood out for me was the sheer amount of violence involved in the affair. I don't know who to feel more sorry for: the earlybird bruised shopper or the flat screen TV, that must be, well, well and truly flattened after being through a scuffle. If you want to know how humanity will react when the world actually ends, you only have to take today as an example. #apocalypse

I love a good bargain-who doesn't- but its days like this that some people take it too far. Black Friday is a little bit of over indulgence, and I don't think the UK has and can handle it all as well as the Americans. And, We`re still a bit confused as to what the "black" refers to in the Friday.
After discussions today with friends and co workers, we've come to the conclusion that its somewhere between unleashing our inner ghetto, getting bruised and beaten and shopping on a stereotypically overcast miserable British day.

Despite all the shocking behaviour of shoppers, there are some things about today thats quite humorous:
1. Whats Black Friday Weekend all about? I think some of the retailers have misununderstood the idea of a one day extravaganza...( and how do you explain Cyber Monday? Thats not even part of the weekend!)
2. Apparently, 2/3 of employees took the day off to fill their bags with discounted goodies. Well my workplace must be filled with a lot of Scrooges because I couldn't see anybody unaccounted for- in fact it was very very subdued in the office today. Weird.
3. So now that you've spent all of your Christmas saving on one day in November, what are you going to do with all your weekends in December??. Oxford St sure is gonna be dead lol

Anyway whatever you did, lusted after, stood in a queue for hours for, I hope it was all worth it!

Happy Black Friday :-D and Well done if you resisted the urge to spend money just for the sake of it.

FYI: this post is purposefully sarcastic. I'm not cynical really :-)
