I was looking forward to this event. I had a list of things I want and my credit card was ready to go; nothing of what I wanted is on sale. Anticlimax.

Then, listening to an American pundit, he was explaining that, like most sales, there are very few bargains, and most items have had their prices hiked for a few months so they can reduce them this weekend. Other items are special purchases just for the sale. Ho Hum.

Bought a couple of pints of milk and some honey at M & S. Had a quick look round the shops and they were not at all busy, as I expected. This Black Friday nonsense is going on for most of the week, it seems.

Yesterday (Black Friday) our high street had less shoppers than I would have expected.

Seems Black Friday has turned out to be a damp squib in a lot of places.

Black Friday needs to be abolished. People really throw away their entire moral compass and show their greed and all of their ugly just to get a "good deal." It's sad and disgusting. Besides, most of the better deals don't even happen this weekend. It's a marketing ploy that all of the sheeple fall into.

That`s chavs for you....

You are up against the sentiment that sees something done in USA must be done in UK - Halloween Trick-or-Treat being another example. I see that "they" are wanting to get Brits to celebrate Thanksgiving, for goodness sake!

A little less following, and a bit more of being amused from afar without copying everything they do, might be a good thing.

It's a capitalist thing, a business opportunity to rip the eyes out of the gullible punters and fill the till.
