Greedy, Dangerous, Thoughtless Folk

I've just watched some footage of the Black Friday shoppers.
I'm disgusted with them all. Trampling, grabbing, thumping, shouting etc
I suppose we will have to wait for someone to get trampled to death before something is done to curb this awful new practise.
I hope, when they see themselves on the Internet or TV, that they are thoroughly ashamed of themselves and the other folk in the crowd.
What a horrible, sickening example.

I've never heard of 'Black Friday' before this year, its supposed to be the friday after Thanksgiving? And, as far as i'm aware, We don't do Thanksgiving over here!!!

Black Friday was always the last Friday before Christmas where all the workers went out on the piss and had a jolly good punch up afterwards.

Thanksgiving crap!!!!!

More stupid  American consumerist ideas, everything about that country is to do with fleecing money from people. The sooner we have nothing to do with them the better.

Apart from the great cars obviously. Very Happy

You're kidding right?

Just going back to the OP. It's British people pictured in the disgusting scenes of avarice. But hey, let's blame the Yanks.
RagnarRocks

You're quite right ducati it is British people shown on film but you should look at the footage carefully too notice which type of people they are.
Also lets totally ignore those are the same scenes you can see all over the USA on their little shopping frenzy day.
It's an American idea we don't even have thanksgiving here Doh so why have black Friday .

black Friday has nowt to do with thanksgiving.
It s the day that the retail outlets traditionally begin to turn profit, therefore in the "black"

It's Amazon's fault. They introduced it to the UK a few years ago and not surprisingly it was a massive success.
I think they should stop it off.
When you look at the prices for the offers it's just a scam. There are a few items which are superb bargains (the ones the greedy idiots fight over) but most stuff is the same price it usually is.
Example, I bought a tin of coloured pencils a few weeks ago and the exact same item was for sale on Amazon last week for 1 more.
Black Friday keeps the shops accounts in the black and shoppers bank accounts   in the red.

like you say its just consumerism, I seem a few things I fancied but then took a minute to consider if I in fact needed it.
Then bought nothing
Result!!

D'you know, that's exactly what I did!
You can save stacks of money buying stuff in the 'sales', but oh my goodness! you can save mountains if you buy nothing.

Go on, which type of people are they? (this should be good).

hmmmm, interesting
I did notice that comment but decided to avoid

If you've seen the footage then you'll of seen the people I feel no requirement to feed those who are feeble minded not to be able to work it out for themselves.
Interesting how Black Friday has nothing to do with Thanksgiving but is and always has been the day after. I guess Boxing Day has nothing to do with xmas either. Same logic ,save me the effort go slap yourself with the stupid stick.
