Are You Out Shopping?
I'm not. I've long been an internet shopper for the most part. I hate crowds, I hate crowded parking lots, and I especially hate the way people drive during the holiday season. I'm much happier in the comfort of my own house on days like today!
Look at these people lined up outside of Target last night in Shreveport!
That said, though, I'm watching the Black Friday coverage with the curiosity of one who watches a train wreck. I sort of understand why people like to get out there and do it; for some, it gets them in the Christmas spirit. Some like the challenge of a "good deal" (are they REALLY that good?). I saw one guy on the local news last night who was camped out in front of Best Buy in the rain, in a tent, and said he loved Black Friday so much that he'd probably come camp out even if he wasn't going to buy anything. Now that's taking it a little too far, I think.
So, tell me. Are you shopping today? Have you gotten any REALLY great deals?
