This week has seen a shopping event called Black Friday to descend upon the UK.
It originates from the USA and shops over here, on our little island, have decided to have a go.
It didn't work out to well.
Having seen the news it appears that a man fell over, somebody got pushed, a woman in a wheelchair was hurt (!) and some poor bugger broke an ankle.
I had become a little bit excited for Black Friday, before it came.
But under no circumstances would I ever think it would be acceptable to trample over a fallen human being in distress in order to make the most of a 10% on a TV that I don't need!
I opted for the online experience instead.
The night before Black Friday (Dull Thursday?) I had set up my laptop with different screens showing various websites like Argos, amazon, currys etc, ready to take full advantage of any and all super savings that came my way.
I had a list of certain things I wanted and made sure I knew what price I was willing to pay.
As the clock flicked over to midnight I refreshed the browser and......
.....was met with a screen for most of the sites that read "You are in a queue..Time to wait 40 minutes!"
HANG ON. I thought to myself. THIS ISN'T THE DOCTORS - WHY AM I HAVING TO WAIT.
Yet again, it appears that my money wasn't good enough for the high street traders.
I went to bed.
Getting up in the morning I decided to venture out into the real world and see what all this fuss was about.
I went to the town centre and found a load of people walking around without a care in the world.
It was busy, but nobody was pushing or shoving or fighting - unlike what was being shown on the news.
I even saw some people smiling at each other!
I went into some of the shops, looking for the things I wanted, but ultimately left empty handed.
It was all a bit disappointing to be honest.
The only thing I bought was a clip for a keyring (it was buy one get one free +20% off, so that was £1.29 well spent).
Back home I had beans on toast for tea.
I only tell you this I am still struggling to find anything of note to write about....
Oh yes. Having recently sold all my CD's I am now in the very slow process of copying all my DVD's onto a hard drive so that I can sell those as well and make a lot of room when the January sales come and I can waste all my money on things and junk and stuff.
ROLL ON CYBER MONDAY!!!!!
