5 Black Friday Myths the Media Wants You to Believe

The alarms start going off at 3:30 in the morning. Soon to be shoppers stumble angrily out of bed with fanny packs of coupons strapped to their waists. Coffee begins working its way through the Thanksgiving themed traffic jam in your entrails. Showers are neglected. Puppies are kicked. Bleary eyed motorists start pulling out of driveways, and it becomes official. The Holiday Shopping Season has begun.

Even if you don’t make the trip to the mall every Black Friday, you probably assume everyone out there is fighting through waves of toy riots and security guards to be the first ones in line. In reality, most of what you believe about Black Friday is a myth, right down to the day it falls on.

Why else would the local news cover something as boring as shopping? You also may have heard, or just assumed, that online shopping was taking a bite out of Black Friday’s lead over every other day of the year. This makes sense because it offers an alternative for people who don’t want to suffer through long lines and threats of death by stampede. Just shop from home on any other day of the year, right?"I’ve already been at this two hours and I’ve only had to gouge one person’s eyes out!"

Actually, Black Friday wasn’t the biggest shopping day of the year until the advent of online shopping. Before that, it was rarely even in
cheap michael kors the
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet top five.

So why was the media paying so much attention to the fifth biggest shopping day of the year? Well, partially because it’s a slow news day. With most
Cheap Michael Kors handbags people off from work and spending time at home with their family, the media has a captive audience and approximately nothing to talk about. So they began reporting on the one sector of the economy that was actually working (instead of pretending to work while totally mailing it in, like the media)."I’ll be honest, guys, I’m not even sure what city this is."

Of course, stories about how everyone’s out spending money weren’t drawing complaints from the advertisers.

Black Friday finally did become the top revenue earner in 2003 by giving people who would rather stay home with their family a way to get at the deals.

So the story that the media had been reporting for years that Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year finally came true, and suddenly they want to complicate it with a bunch of other days when you have to remember to wear riot gear to the mall.

This is because of a new strategy among retailers to make holiday shopping into a four week period. In 2010, Cyber Monday took in over a billion dollars in online revenue, the largest amount for any day in history.

Presumably, when Cyber Monday officially takes the biggest shopping day title from Black Friday, we’ll start hearing about how Cyber Monday is in danger of losing its spot as the hottest shopping day of the year to "Tip Jar Tuesdays," when consumers just empty their wallets into jars by the cash register."Dump your cash on the pile and piss right off."

4. It Turns Americans into Sale Crazed Lunatics

Before going near a retail store on Black Friday, you should make sure your life insurance is paid up. If the news is any indication, you’re going to be
michael kors handbags outlet dealing with a bunch of feral materialists. Every year brings more tales of shoppers fighting or killing
fake Michael kors handbags outlet each other. It’s as if the entire country is driven CRAZY by these great deals, but instead of slashing prices like the owner of Crazy Eddie’s mattress emporium, they’re taking it out on each other."I’ll cut you so hard!"

It seems like people are more violent on Black Friday because the national media doesn’t pay attention to violence at retail stores until it happens on Black Friday. Wesley Strellis walked into a Walmart a little after noon, picked up a metal bat from the sporting goods section, carried it to electronics and methodically destroyed 29 flat screen TVs. There’s the case of the 55 year old man who
fake Michael kors handbags outlet punched a 72 year old store greeter in the face for asking to see his receipt, and the guy who walked into a Walmart and pissed on a
Michael Kors handbags case of steaks. And who can forget the man who lit three racks of clothes on fire in the men’s department when Walmart wouldn’t let him return an item. There are crazy people in this world who do crazy things. Often times at Walmart. CNN didn’t report
discount Michael Kors on any of those stories because why would they?"Ho hum, just another March gunfight at the mall."Articles Connexes:
