I am not buying any Christmas presents this year. We over did it a bit last Christmas and this year has been a stretch financially. My car should be paid off this month (10 months into the 24 month loan), things are looking up just in time to start paying on a vacation we have planned for next June.
When the conversation came up at work about “Black Friday” and if I had done any shopping, I simply answered “nope, not my scene.”
This is what started the debate about Black Friday and the people who shop during those sales. The guys at work were quite prolific in nearly a condescending tone about the people waiting up all night for sales and rushing in the door.
There was laughing and cajoling, I was not saying a word. When asked again if I saw on the news the people storming Walmart I simply said “We are lucky to be in an income bracket that we do not have to rely on a yearly sales event to afford gifts for our families”
Yep, getting along great at the new job!!!
