Black Friday is a scam these days. I noticed for the last couple of years the stores start marking up the prices months leading to that day. Then they lower the prices close to where the prices were in the first place for their ‘Special’ sale. People are waiting in line for hours before the stores open just to be proven they are suckers for the stores ‘scam sales’. LOL
I heard about this 3 years ago, and I didn’t believe it. So for the past 2 years I have kept close tabs on the prices of electronics, because my nest egg is trying to burn a hole in my pocket. As I was watching prices all year, I came to the conclusion that stores play the sales game. They are good at fooling their customers and and make them come back for seconds.
The funny thing is you can cut out the middle man and shop online, and still beat the stores special sales prices all year long after you pay for shipping.
Perhaps people like to walk into a crowded store, elbow to elbow, babies screaming, women running over your heal with their shopping carts, people putting their hands on your arm to move you aside , another baby screaming their head off for 10 minutes, lady just slammed you with another shopping cart, kid just ran into you full speed, a mother just put their kid aside in the isle to spank the crap out of them…just to have the kid start screaming to its maximum abonoxious noise. Then you go to check out, you walk up and down the isle to try to find the fastest check out line. Then you accept the fact that it is going to take at least 35-60 minutes to check out. Your already mad, pissed, Irate, and perhaps bruised. The last thing you need is to listen to another kid screaming (WHAAAAAAA!) at the top of his lungs, listen to people talking about the stupidest subjects, have the cashier go on speaker saying ‘Price check’ which delays the experience even more, and then have those customers a head of you unorganized to the point they are digging for their damn check book or their secret cash stash that they can’t seem to find.
