Black Friday...the do or die, make or break for the American holiday businesses, retailers.Effective advertising means you feel a little jittery, anxious with sweating palms, shortness of breath wondering if you should be weilding a shopping cart with millions of other shoppers. The next few hours are critical and you wonder what massive savings are you missing out on..the missed opportunity of not pitching a tent to be the first guy or gal in to help Santa and the elves this Ho Ho Home for the Holidays traditon.
Think about it..if you drove all night to get say kids home from college, had stocked the shelves for all the Thanksgiving vittles and then with the lower level of sleep this week under the expanding belt from all the food you pushed thru your pie hole...would camping out with LL Bean tents, gear really be worth it all?
The holiday hoopla to save the five dollars on the electronics you suddenly think you can not live without..that you head in to the retail jungle with a fist full of plastic to bring down, to take home. And the worry about what if the two per store guarantee stocking is like a musical chair you are not standing next to when "I'll be home for Christmas" stops.
