The whole VisuCompound will not be participating in the nonsense that has become black friday. Consumerism and the loss of humanity that overcomes the shoppers wanting to get a great deal on the latest 'must have toy'. We will probably hear how someone pulled out pepper spray or a tazer to keep granny on the electric cart from barging her way to the freshly uncovered stash from being first. Families going hungry this year, in our own neighborhoods, and 1000's tramping each other to be first in line to get the Oh so rare iPad Mini in tangerine. Yep, they can raid the outlet malls, sporting goods and big box retailers. I will be hitting the grocery store on SATURDAY to get the stuffing, cranberry relish and jelly, and other overstocked items for 1/2 off or more of their pre holiday 'Low' price. I saw that our local grocery has brought in way too much canned green beans, corn and sweet potatoes (yams). They had enough for 3 of our communities. I smell a fire sale soon. For those of you that are going to venture out into the jaws of hell (black friday) be safe and think first, 'Do i really need this?' You'll thank me later, if you survive that is.
