Wife Went Shopping On Black Friday

I remember my wife telling me the other day that she wasn’t going to be going out today.  Well, wife is now off to go shopping on the night that I would never ever be caught shopping on.  Why is that?  Well, if I wanted to stand in a line at a store for many hours in order to be one of the first in, or get to a store right before opening and have to stand on a line very long then I would need my head examined.  With the worlds economic standing I don’t believe that there are going to be many deals that are worth that kind of aggravation.  On top of the lines there are rude people that you have to deal with.

She just called me and told me that she was a considerable distance from the store she was going to, and it is raining on and off.  I don’t know what to tell her other than she is only saving a few dollars.  Buy it at regular price.  If you haven’t noticed the retailers don’t have anything special going on.

When I worked in Tinton Falls I saw how people get, and saw what my wife went through in the past when she went out on that night.  I told her earlier in the week not to worry about gifts for me, and to just worry about the little one.  I am not someone that MUST have something.  If she must get me something, then a few pairs of pants, and maybe a few men’s polo shirts will do because I use both for work.

I love you Deb, and I feel for you in wanting to go out and try to get a good deal, but you never listen to me when I say that it is all a scam.  Stores have a certain quantity of items available at sale price, and then the price goes back up.

Have fun.
