Default Black Friday is a scam

I pretty much felt this way all along not to mention I do not like the idea of fighting nasty mean people over something that is on sale.

I don't go out on Black Friday unless it's something I know that is needed and might not be back in store by Christmas. Case in point, DH wanted a timing light to do maintenance on the car. I found one online but it was on back order. I called the store and they had one left and agreed to hold it for me as long as I got there in two hours. I flew to the mall on Black Friday. I hope never to have to repeat that again. But on the upside DH loved the gift and it has been put to good use.

I like the "ambiance" of Black Friday and I only buy the big deals. I'm a deal shopper in general anyway so I definitely don't buy something that is not a super deal.
