It's Thanksgiving Week!

And you all know what that means, right?
Black Friday Shopping!

I know that some of you out there are terribly against this time of year.  The idea of consumers crushing each other to save a mere $50.00, but please remember that not all of us are like that. In fact, I am not like that at all.  I plan in advance people - I look for deals weeks in advance!  Then after I find the deals I look for other places with the same deal, so I know where to go and what time I should be there.  Strategy people!  Do I panic or fight or pull a gun if, after all this amazing planning, I should happen to not get my item?  No.  Do I  pull hair, knock kids over, or run anyone down?  No.  Nothing is that important.  But, I do think that with careful planning and scouting that a person can have a great Black Friday experience, get some good deals, save a little bit of money in the process, and not kill anyone.  I KNOW ! I KNOW!  It's hard to subscribe to the idea of civility in these situations, but I promise, it can be done.  

So, This Thanksgiving weekend, just remember that not all of us are out there to kill.  In fact, I can get in and out of Walmart in a record time (15 minutes) because I plan.  Rarely do I get stuck in long lines and fights - rarely.  The point of this particular Blob is merely to point out that not all of us Black Friday Shoppers are like the picture above... not all of us are raving lunatics out for blood.
