  • Not a chance in hell. I plan to sit back at home, where it is safe and have a few drinks.

  • No, it's all a big retail hype. The mark everything up 70% in the summer so it looks like a huge markdown around the holidays. Plus I can't stand the traffic, pushing, shoving, and the way people act when they are trying to get a certain toy or gift for someone.

  • Nope! That is not a pay Friday, and since I have most of my shopping done I don't feel like battling crowds just to get the few things I still have to buy.

  • no
    i try to not even leave the house that day, close the curtains, and would not get out of bed if it was possible
    i do like to watch the news that night and watch the madness
    sad though when you hear the news report about people getting trampled rushing into a store, sometimes people die in the trampling
    the definition of madness, losing your life to beone of the few who gets that talking tickling Elmo doll, r whatever th toy companys have made so unavailable so everyone has to have that item and will knock down others in an attempt to purchase for their child in the name of Christ

    so, no, i am not into that shopping day of hell

  • Wow, I'm the first yes? I love braving the masses. Ironic after 5 years as a retail manager! I guess I just like being on the other end of it.

  • Nope I do most of my shopping online. I don't brave stores in general during the holidays if I can help it.

    Answer by onemellowmom at 10:43 AM on Nov. 15, 2010

  • No way!!! I do most of my shopping online anyway - but NOTHING gets me out of the house on black Friday. People seem to lose their minds, manners, and any semblance of kindness.

  • Nope I refuse to be out with all those rude people.
