I refuse to lower myself to wild-animal status just to save a few bucks on something I probably don't really need.
What it is for me, and why I despise Black Friday, is how my fellow human beings lower their morals and ethics to "save money".
How much is your time worth? I know that for me, it's worth more than the money I'd save on a new TV. I'd rather be creating valuable memories or
enriching my mind than sitting in the cold.
People litterally act like rabid vultures -- and it's getting worse every year. As the homogenization of our society continues, pushing us all to
accept a "Walmart quality of life", people are more and more desperate to hold onto their false sense of their station in life.
People today have a vastly inflated sense of what they should be able to afford.
I should get a bulhorn and drive by the people in line and yell,
"You cannot take any of this crap with you when you die. Go read a book, create some artwork. Raise your damned kids. Get the most out life!"
Life isn't or shouldn't be about how big of a TV you can fit through your trailer door. The fact that society has let retailers convince them of
that is depressing as hell.
