the blackest friday of them all

My email inbox has been besieged by offers this week. No doubt yours has as well. 50% off! Use this code online and in store! Free gift if you spend £50! Go. Away. I jab at the delete button multiple times, till my fingers ache. *sigh* This joins the American imports that I would happily throw in the bin. It's nearly as excruciating as Halloween. Take it back, America. Please take it back and I will luvs you for ever. It's full of bargains! which are not bargains, and the random tat that shops have on the Failure, Why Can't We Sell This? shelf in their stockroom. Town will confuse me today with its busyness. People will become vicious in their desperation to get the last non-branded telly on the shelf. Granted, there are some real bargains, but these are few and far between. I wonder, is Black Friday simply a variation of the British Boxing Day Sales, imported into America to follow Thanksgiving instead of Christmas? Is it possible that we've just exported something, only for it to come back and bite us on the bum under a different identity? Are we really that silly?!
