Why do I always get sucked into black Friday??? Every year I say I am not going. Then I look at the ads Thanksgiving day and I say “Look at all these great deals, I can do this!” After waking up AT 4:30 a.m., showing up, realizing that everyone who said they would meet me is still sleeping in their warm bed, figuring out that everything I wanted in the add is already gone, picking up some other junk I never wanted in the first place, waiting in line for 2 hours to save spend a little bit of money, and after ALL this I promise myself “I am NOT doing this next year!” Then, a year later the cycle starts all over again.
Tell me. Will it ever stop? Is there some kind of 12 step group for torturing yourself this way even if it is only once a year?
