Black Friday by bored0stiff Black Friday by bored0stiff
I read this article about this thing in America called Black Friday, where people actually physically fight - actual, real harm is caused to people - over shopping. This is an actual real thing, Google it if you don't believe me. This reminded me of Rarity for some reason. I'm sure she would make sure that she was the one to get those deals :3

I think Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving, or at least it is according to the article I read. I don't know when Thanksgiving is, but I know it's around about this time of year, maybe I'm a week or so out, but just pretend that I uploaded this at a suitable time please.

Rarity is your typical Black Friday shopper.
And it no longer is just contained to the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Recently, stores have begun the blitz on Thanksgiving night. I know my mother, sister, and aunts drove out at midnight to an outlet until 3 am so they could get the best deals.

It's good old American insanity.

It unfortunately isn't made up…:(
A couple years ago in the area in which I live, somebody was trampled to death while waiting in line when a store called Walmart opened. Black Friday is really terrible.

:iconprincesslunaplz:: So, sister, let me get this straight: There you were, NOT stealing people's spots in line, beating a Best Buy security guard senseless with a 9-iron, then driving your limo through the housewares section of Walmart?

You did indeed.

I only know this because Yuni said to me "after Thanksgiving, the mail in the US goes crazy!" THIS was regarding my Christmas gift from her.

Oh and I like the designs of the other ponies. But I honestly don't think Rarity would attack anyone for clothes. She's too prim and proper for that.

Since everythign is so expensive over here in America, on Black Friday all the stores and such will lower the prices ALOT

America is about the same price as the UK though for most stuff, and I have never seen anything like that here. It's really amazing.

Sadly, ''tis true. I'm an American and I don't understand it . . . I mean, why would anyone in their right mind be that obsessed over a sale? It happens every week out of every month of the year.

I guessed from the article that it was probably something that has happened maybe once or twice and the news have blown it out of proportion. But, it's all true? Wow...

Yep, people actually have gotten trampled to death. It's so stupid . . . but it happens.

Only in America, eh? :roll: At least she got a posthumous Darwin award.

Wow. Yeah, I have to admit it doesn't sound like something that would happen in America of all countries.

MillenniumFalsehood Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012
Well, we are a consumer nation. Part of that mindset is "I have to get it before everyone else does" which can be so strong in some people that it overcomes basic human nature.

It's shameful, but short of the president making some law to specifically address consumerism (which would interfere with basic rights), it's probably not going to change any time soon. :(

I guess so, but America is also a very plentiful country. I just find it amazing that there isn't enough to go around and people are pushed to fighting. Surely the shops could just raise their stocks, if it happens every year?

:iconmillenniumfalsehood:
MillenniumFalsehood Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012
There's plenty to go around, it's just that certain mindset in those kinds of people who are obsessed with shopping and getting a good deal that cause problems like this. I'm still proud to be American, but these people are like the third cousin twice removed of the American family tree. We acknowledge that they're members of the same country, but facepalm at them almost every day. They're usually grouped in with Bible-thumpers, UFO fanatics, Big Foot spotters, and End-Of-The-World people. :roll:

Who are unfortunately the Americans that us Brits hear the most about. I'm lucky I have the internet to prove to me that not all, in fact not many, Americans fit to the stereotype that the news plays out, but I imagine a lot of people do think that's what everyone is like there....

Wait, is Black Friday really true? I live in the UK, so we don't get violent shoppers fight to the death over clothes.... mind you, that'll be fun to watch....
