As someone who's worked Black Friday retail: it's not that awesome. It sucks for us. Even for customers, sales can start as early as two weeks before black friday except on the big day they may give you a free gift (like a tote worth 5 bucks) or something with your purchase. Eh.
Also, stores open too damn early. If you go to one of those places that open thanksgiving day, you're essentially encouraging the companies to further exploit their workers and have them sacrifice their family time. I HATED not being able to enjoy my dinner with family as well. I couldn't eat as much and couldn't really socialize since I wanted to get some sleep since I was working through the night.
So yeah. I'll do cyber stuff, but I will never go out.
