Black Friday Madness

 

So, I put up this pretty picture to give you some eye candy in the case you don’t want to read what I have to say. I don’t generally use my blog as a platform to go on rants, but this one I just couldn’t help but talk to you guys about. Hopefully it’ll give you more of an insight into me and let you know I care about more than clothes.

The thing is, I am completely mortified and shocked and appalled by the behavior of some people on Black Friday. I was talking to Bob about it and I almost feel like Black Friday shouldn’t be allowed any more. Of course that’s ridiculous because no one can tell a store they can’t have a sale. But honestly, a woman brought a gun into a store and opened fire just to get an item for a lower price? Last year, someone got trampled to death.

I feel embarrassed to be an American. There are people in the world dying because they have no food and we’re ready to kill someone so we can get an item on sale. I am just speechless. And what’s horrible is that these select people are ruining (what is supposed to be) a fun day for everyone else.

I don’t really know what to do about this. I guess I’m just hoping that this will end. And I want to encourage you to pass the word on. Just to be clear, I have nothing against people shopping black friday. Just the mistreatment of others in order to reap the benefits of it.

Sorry for being such a downer. Here’s a little something funny to lighten the mood.
