I dislike Black Friday

Post by Auf Wiedersehen, Pet » Fri Nov 25, 2016 6:26 pm

The term Black Friday is becoming a couple of words I find hard to say.
I dislike today very much. I dislike greed.

It is vile isn't it? Wanton, naked greed from both the buyers and the retailers. It never ceases to amaze me how, even this week, people in the UK are bleating on about low wages and 'poverty' yet they've all got huge TVs, iphones, home broadband etc, and they think nothing of spending what must be thousands on useless tat every December celebrating a religious festival half of them dont even believe in.

And dont even get me started on November 5 - talk about literally setting fire to your money :evil:

There are ads on the tv today talking about 'Black Friday Weekend'. They really wont be happy until every day of the year has some made up reason to grab your cash

It's not that I'm against hard work and earning what you can, but this is just a horrible promotion. Most of its crap they want to clear out before the start of the next season, I just sometimes feel people should realise they're not getting a bargain.

Greed is not good. My husband has been filling shoeboxes with small toys and things like soap and toothbrushes for poor children around the world. Has anyone ever watched a video on YouTube of these poor little mites opening them on Christmas morning? Heartbreaking.
We take so much for granted here.
That should be the John Lewis Xmas advert.

Totally agree with you Lou, I went into a shop last year, it was unbelievable, I actually felt sick. If that's what it means to be part of civilised society I'll sit on my verandah and talk to my chickens thank-you!
