    'Black Friday' shoppers clash in the U.K.

    'Black Friday' shoppers clash in the U.K.

    Police blasted stores for bringing "Black Friday" to Britain, with the US sales event descending into chaotic fist fights as frenzied consumers battled to grab discounted goods.

    In scenes of pandemonium around the country, common civility went out the window as yelling customers punched it out in a bid to secure reduced-price televisions and coffee makers.

    Looks like our customs are not spreading good cheer?

    Black Friday brings out the worst in people. What's really sad about all this is that the deals often aren't all that great. They hype it up, but really if you pay attention to pre-Black Friday prices and Black Friday prices you might be surprised to find that the discounts aren't that much better than discounts you'll find any other time of the year.

    It really should be called "Bait And Switch Friday."

    On Black Friday, I shop from home and wait for it to come in the mail. Man, I love having CCs.

    Black Friday is for idiots. No. Because I am at home. Where these idiots should be.

    Black Friday has infiltrated Canada, too. It's completely manufactured nonsense created by the retailers. Bad enough people feel the need to buy a bunch of crap for Xmas. You have to brave the overbusy malls in order to gift someone for $50 (cuz that was the set limit), and you either ask them what they want or you buy them something they don't. They, in turn, brave the overbusy malls in order to gift someone for $50 (cuz that was the set limit), and you either ask them what they want or you buy them something they don't. It's silly, asinine and retarded. The best thing my family did years ago was to do away with the ridiculousness. No more stress... we simply enjoy each other's company at Xmas.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Yep, some (many?) stores seem to place items on sale, like big screen TV's or power tools, that are discontinued models with small print saying limited to stock on hand, while supplies last, no rain checks or at some stores only. They count on morons so intent to purchase that kind of item that they will spend far more to get a much worse "one time deal" on a "similar" replacement item.

    Do your shopping a K-Mart.
