While everyone else in America was out shopping on Black Friday….and why do they call it Black Friday….I worked and made money. I have to say that I’ll bet I was a lot happier working and making time and a half than those out fighting the crowds and spending. The newest mall in Des Moines opened at midnight – o – one this morning. There were 35,000 people lined up to go in. THIRTY FIVE THOUSAND. Shoppers had to wait in line for 2 hours to check out. TWO HOURS….except at Scheels…they were organized and it was only 45 minutes. I’m kind of shocked by this and I’m disgusted…I hope this was just an adventure…something new to do with friends and family…if that is the case…guess better than staying up all night drinking….. never say never…who knows…maybe there will be a midnight to morning shopping trip in my future??? I guess it has to be fun and rewarding or no one would be doing it right??? To each his own, I guess….
Until next time…..
