Why Black Friday is the Worst Day to Shop

Do you shop on Black Friday?

I use to work retail, and of course Black Friday was one of the worst days to work. However, I felt that it was also one of the worst days to shop.

First, everyone else is out shopping. Traffic is ridiculous, lines are so long you need a chair, and everyone is trying to score a deal on something.

Which brings me to my second point. Why would you want to spend the night freezing your ass off just so you can get a discount on something that you don’t really need? Is the item you are after so important that you would ¬†sacrifice sleep, warmth, and the after Thanksgiving high? Just wait for Walking Dead Season 2 to go on sale some other time, man.

Third and lastly, I find that Black Friday brings out the worst in many people. When working in retail, I would get a full range of emotions from people reacting to something being out of stock. Everything from a woman refusing to leave the store until she had an out of stock blu- ray player for her husband; to a fully grown woman crying and pleading to me that she had to have a CD for her grandson.
