    Its one of the days that people are extra crazy. with greed in mind. A good day to stay away from the stores unless you are working.

    The extent of my Black Friday shopping:

    1. Went to my local Cadillac dealer and had 4 new Continental Pure Contact LS tires installed on our ATS. $200 rebate required purchase by 11/30/19. Paid $7.23 under the TireRack price per tire and so my net cost is under $100.00 each after the rebate. All done in one hour.

    2. Stopped by Walgreens and picked up the photos I submitted on line yesterday. No waiting.

    3. Stopped at Lowes and had them price match the Black Friday price on the 9' Christmas tree I purchased last week. No waiting at the customer service desk and promptly got a $42.00 refund to my credit card.

    Went home and shoveled snow (not enough snow overnight to fire up the Husqvarna)...

    i hate "shopping." If i actually have to go to a store, i call it "buying", cause im just walking in to buy what i came for, and not interested in looking at anything else. you will never see me near a store on Black Friday. I think its a shame that this world is so messed up that people need to go shopping on Thanksgiving now. Its my opinion that most people go to buy stuff just cause its cheap and on sale, not because they need it.

    I worked today. Swung the big tanker into the loading area of a Lowe's and parked along the side of the store away from any other vehicles...plus allowed myself a way out.

    I been needing a decent wet/dry vac. Lowe's had a 12 gallon/6hp motor unit for $39 (normally $100). The adventure took exactly 7 minutes.

    I did my Black Friday shopping online from China! Ordered a new laptop for my consulting work, 50% off from the Dell website. I'll pick it up when I get home in three weeks.
