Black Friday always seems like a bad day to leave the house... more so during a global pandemic

In year's past, it's been fun to watch videos of morons fighting over the last "sale item" at a box store. Most shoppers know the best pricing is a few weeks after Black Friday, yet they still go shopping a 2:00AM to save a few bucks on an appliance. The crowds and checkout lines are enough to keep me home.

In a country where you have to tell people that a global pandemic is deadly serious, you know traditions will be hard for idiots. Thanksgiving gatherings are a bad idea because the Coronavirus spreads easily indoors and very often elderly family members are present. So why was it just days before Thanksgiving was formally announced as a bad idea? Plans were already in place.

This makes me wonder two things:

  1. Scientists saw this coming. Why wait to the last minute to cancel Thanksgiving gatherings?
  2. Why hasn't Black Friday been canceled in retail stores?

Stay home on and shop online!
