Who else feels pressured into believing that if we don't buy and consume everything in sight this Friday, our country will totally fall apart at the seams?

BUY or DIE.

You couldn't pay me to go near a store the day after Thanksgiving. I really can't stand going to stores in general, any time of the year.

Amen, Phyllis.

BLACK FRIDAY sounds so cheerful, doesn't it?

In keeping with the season.

I stay away from the stores as well, but someone told me yesterday that she and her husband go right to Staples because whatever they buy is free after the rebate.

Really? oy.

I stay faaaaar away from stores on Black Friday. I'll wind up clotheslining someone. That and you couldn't pay me to get up on my day off and be at a store at 4am. Eff that.

I have the same stance. I hate to even drive anywhere on Black Friday, my friends and family don't understand it.
I have NEVER met Cheyenne Jackson. I have never hung out with him in his dressing room, he did not tweet me, he never bought me a beverage, and he mostly certainly didn't tickle me. . .that is all.

For the first time in 3 years, I won't be working Black Friday. To celebrate this joyous occasion, I intend to avoid the malls like the freakin' plague.

I heard it likes to be referred to as 'African-American Friday'.

I'll be working Black Friday as well. It sucks, but once you accept the fact it's gonna be one of the worst work days ever, it isn't that bad.

I rather spend quite a bit more money on something rather than going out in the chaos.

4 a.m.? Psh! There are places that open at midnight. 4 a.m. is NOTHING. Geez, get with your Black Friday customs.

I was somewhat silly and volunteered to street team for the Altar Boyz outside the Water Tower Place on Friday. I wonder who's going to get completely ignored and perhaps even run over a few thousand times on Black Friday.

Well, I AM there from 12-4. So perhaps the ravenous, crazy shoppers will have somewhat dispersed by then. Hopefully.
