Have you been Black Friday shopping yet?

    Black Friday is supposed to be on the 29th November this year, but I gather that many shops have already started knocking out cheap tat in the hope of getting our money off us before it gets wasted on Christmas faire.

    How long will it be before Black Friday lasts as long as the DFS sale?

    And anyway Black Friday will be the one after the election when we have that dishonest, incompetent clown Johnson and his swivel eyed loons inflicted on us for the next 5 years.

    No I don't join in with Black Friday either @peakster .
    As for your comment about the next Black Friday it would be wonderful to think that there could be another outcome but I fear you are right .
    Five year trip to Europe or anywhere else could be the only answer . If that were an option . Sigh .

    Ah the annual Black Friday thread.

    Who cares? People shop? So what....

    Conspicuous consumption. If I need something I suppose I will look for a competitive price. But, if I needed something, then I couldn't wait for Black Friday. By definition. I needed whatever it was. Then. Now.

    I bought a cheap laptop recently, I thought about waiting for Black Friday but remembered previous reports of how many "bargains" could actually be bought more cheaply at other times of the year, so I got what I wanted rather than picking the nearest thing that the shops were wanting to get rid of.

    Can't stand shopping and the same samey retail outlets in every single town.
    Once you've seen one shopping centre, you've seen the mall.

    Ireland remains an option. Problem solved.

    Mercury will be retrograde on Black Friday. It's a bad time to buy anything electronic.

    Said so on daytime TV so it must be true.

    You don't need to worry unless the moon is in Uranus.

    Are there rings around Uranus ?

    My spending depends on when my credit card bill is due to be generated. If I hit the day right I can get nearly two months to pay. Having paid it for the due date today, about this time next week any spending will not be due until mid January.

    No. I'm not saying that if I actually wanted to buy something and it just happened to have a 20% off for Black Friday,I would not accept the discount but I would not start getting lots of stuff just because of the so called bargains.

    I was in a school once on a visit and there were some kids posters on the wall about the various planets. One of them was of the aforementioned Uranus.

    The kid has spelled it "Youranus"

    No joke.

    Go shoplifting - that way you can be sure of getting a bargain.

    There's a quote from Carry on Constable by Kenneth Williams about Uranus ,
    "Yes we know , when Mars in conjunction with Uranus you're in for a bumpy night !" Always make me snigger . Juvenile I know but who cares :) .
