Black friday is the day when the zoo is quiet. As apes here in the zoo we enjoy a peaceful breakfast of fruit. Anyhow Charlie who is a human and security guard tell us that some people go mad in hunt of the bargain of the week.
We [the monkey house] get emails and things can look tempting but do we really need them. I need some rechargeable batteries (my blog) for a phone, i see no offers or could not be arsed to find any. I see a landline phone which is for sale at £30, sort of what i would expect to pay every day.
Then there was the vga monitor (my blog) that i would like to replace but the existing one still works, i can wait until it dies. So i hope people got what they wanted but i sort f doubt that they did. Televisions obsolete quickly (my blog) and i don’t really do a lot of tv watching since we are currently short of the requisite pretty girl vets that tv producers demand with a sexual deviant star introducing it and are not on tv.
Maybe there are amazing deals but theres nothing i need that requires that i have to join the madness and i’d rather wait and consider what i buy rather than something perceived as cheap for reasons best known by the retailer*.
After all the ‘sale’ seems to be a all year event – Cyber monday is coming if you just happened to not buy 4 batteries like i did.
* reconditioned ? returned ? poor quality manufacture ?
