Yay Black Friday!!!

I’m not a big fan of shopping in crowded stores.  Needless to say, you wouldn’t have found me camping out in freezing temperatures on a hard discount store parking lot last night, waiting for the sliding glass doors to be unlocked and the Black Friday specials to begin shaking out.

Is it me, or does Black Friday just seem to get crazier every year?  This is getting downright scary, man!

Before you know it, people will start pitching tents to save a spot for Black Friday after they hand out goodies to trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

What is the attraction, aside from deep discounts that you can take advantage of at 3:37 in the morning with a store full of tired, angry bargain hunters?  Is it the satisfaction of heading out to breakfast at the nearest IHOP when it’s all done, confident that you picked up that glorious flatscreen TV while punching out some lady for the right to it immediately after the doors opened?

On Black Friday, you stand a very good chance of having a target on your back at Target if you pick up the last Tickle Me Elmo to be had, or whatever the latest and greatest hot new toy is this season.

Is it worth it?

Try looking at a few of these Black Friday videos while running through the tune “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” in your head.

And, scariest of all …

Oops!  Sorry!  Rebecca … Black … Friday … it happens.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at http://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
