Definition of Black Friday – Crazy Ass Shoppers

It may seem a bit early to blog about this but I still would like to talk about Black Friday. For those who do not know what Black Friday is, it is the day after Thanksgiving, which is also the busiest time of the year. During Black Friday, there are MANY deals and sales out there that are unimaginative. It is the best time of the year to shop for electronics and household items. Televisions are the most popular item . It is the number one item that people fight for. evisions can drop down to as low as $100 for a 42″ TV. Second would be computers/laptop.

There are people who would have their whole Thanksgiving dinner while waiting in line. It makes me wonder if people are that crazy over Black Friday. The answer is yes. In the past, people have died because of this chaotic sale. In 2008, a Walmart employee was stampeded by the crazy shoppers while unlocking the doors. No one bothered to stop and help him, they were too busy claiming their items. Another incident was when a pregnant women was knocked down and suffered miscarriage.

Do sales like Black Friday make people lose their sanity and humanity? Should companies be responsible for keeping chaos under control? After the few incidents, many stores began to issue tickets for customers to claim their item, instead of fighting over it. However, with sales like Black Friday, people tend to lose their common sense.
