What’s all the Black Friday hype?

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  Okay, not the favorite, that honor belongs to Groundhog Day, but I appreciate the fact that it has remained blessedly non-commercial.  Plus, it’s just about the only day you can pig out without guilt.

Now, Black Friday is of course the very opposite of a non-commercial day.  It’s instead the day millions of people are duty-bound to stampede into stores and humiliate themselves fighting over sale merchandise like starving hyenas fighting over a rotting impala carcass.  It was just another work day for me, spent at a nearby location.  It was busy, even though it’s not the sort of location normally associated with Black Friday shopping mania.  I had at best a mediocre day notwithstanding the heavy flow of potential customers.  Most of the people I encountered seemed too rushed and/or distracted to display much interest in what I had to offer.  Not surprising, really.
