We’ve been doing this Black Friday / Cyber Monday thing since 2008, if my poor 46-year-old brain recalls correctly. And it’s become a bit of a circus (unlike back in my day).
This may be another sign that I’m getting older and crankier, but it just seems no fun anymore. Too much noise, pushing, shoving … oh look, an assault in aisle four by a mother of three.
So, just like older folks enjoy a nice meal a tad earlier than the young’uns, we thought we’d have an earlier sale. You know — get the stuff you want, avoid the crowds, maybe watch some Matlock and turn in early.
