I agree there is no need for most of the stuff they are buying. Ever see the show "Hoarders?" People buy and buy and stuff ends up shoved in their closets, under beds, rotting in the middle of their living rooms. It's a sick society where this type of thing happens. I am glad I will have no part of that madness. It's disgusting.

I HAVE to drive past a mall to get to work today, but that's as close as I want to get to this feeding frenzy.

I agree one hundred percent. Was just watching it on the news and wondering at people's priorities in life.

Why this whole, black bit in Friday? What is the meaning?
 Quoting: 2012Portal


It's an old accounting term.. instead of being in the 'red = debt..on this day retailers hope to get out of the red and have a profit which means into black..

Back in the day there was only two colors of pen, black and red, red was for debt and black was profit.

Black Friday means a thousands of people rushing a store in the hopes of getting one of the 3 tvs. the store has on sale from 6am to 8 am for 200 dollars instead of 3 hundred..

Re: Black Friday - Something's WRONG With Our Society!
I believe it's called Black Friday because the retailers hope to have their profits in the 'black' instead of in the 'red'....anyone know for sure?

Anyway, I hate it and never go!

Yes, I have. These people are slaves to their addictions. It's so sad!

I owned my own shop in the 70s. Never, honest & for true, never did people behave with such "utter abandon" of civilised behaviour, that I can remember.

Well...maybe the screaming masses when The Beatles came state-side in the 60s could be construed as such LOL

Why do these vids remind me of mutant sewer rat scenes from a horror movie!?!?
