Yes, I said it. Black Friday really sucks. Every Thanksgiving day you get the newspaper and it’s full of Black Friday ads. The ads show you a bunch of unbelievable Black Friday deals. Of course you have to get up and be at the store at 3 AM to get your deals. You have to stand in line with a bunch of other grumpy Black Friday shoppers and wait for the doors to open up. The whole time you are in line you are wondering if you will be able to get that perfect deal for Christmas. Usually, you get nothing but the leftovers and you are tired. Maybe you will try it next year or be smart like the rest of us and stay in bed and get some rest. Yes people, Black Friday really sucks.
There have been too many stories about people getting hurt on Black Friday. Wal-Mart crowd fights over an X-Box 360 system, people argue in malls over Black Friday deals, a fist fight breaks out at a Best Buy over Black Friday deals, stampeding Wal-Mart customers trample Long Island employee to death and two people killed in a gun battle between Toys R Us customers. These are just a few of the disasters that have happened when shoppers are out and after their Black Friday deals. Yes people, Black Friday really sucks.
I know you are bored because all of the stores were closed on Thanksgiving Day. You are filled up with Thanksgiving dinner and you want to walk the stuff off. You are not a sports fan and you are tired of the NFL football you had to watch on Thanksgiving Day. You do not want to be a last minute Christmas shopper and get stuck in the crowd. Ask yourself an important question; have you been in the malls on Black Friday? Have you spent any time at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, Toys R Us or any other retailer on Black Friday? Have you really gotten deals that are worth the stress of shopping on Black Friday? Is it worth losing sleep over to shop early on Black Friday? Be honest with yourself people, Black Friday really sucks.
These are some suggestions for the people out there that can’t resist Black Friday shopping. Check out the Black Friday deals online.

If you are crazy and must go out on Black Friday, prepare yourself. Buy a bullet proof vest just in case somebody really wants that huge television more than you want it. Wear stomp proof clothing just in case people try to trample over you. Wear body pads because somebody is sure to slam a cart in to you on Black Friday. Cart smashing is a tradition on Black Friday. Bring deodorant, mouthwash and gum for those around you who forgot to shower or brush their teeth because they were overly excited about Black Friday.
