BLACK FRIDAY MADNESS.....

Black Friday deals
I talked about Black Friday yesterday and you would not imagine the amount of craziness that has occurred from midnight till this hour. What is Black Friday? It is the day after Thanksgiving in USA. Apparently lots of companies slash the prices of a lot of selected items. It helps them balance their account or so. Anyway it is a real sales gimmick and discounts range from 20% to as much as 60%. Go Figure! It was only done in the US but nowadays the event has gone global.

Even the online malls or websites of the companies give discounts but because of the rush the websites usually crash. As for me i can never partake in it. Why? Just check out the pictures below, prepare to be shocked and laugh. People ain't smiling at all.....lol
In shocking scenes, a woman desperately clung to a  TV after a brawl broke out at the Asda store in Wembley over the cut-price item
See a grown up woman clinging onto a T.V....lol

A staff member was forced to intervene as the customer fell to her knees in a desperate attempt to claim the TV, which was reduced from £219 to £139
A staff member had to intervene and the woman in black kept begging (it was slashed from 219 to 139 pounds)

The shoppers were seen pushing and fighting one another on the shop floor as they tried to get their hands on the reduced item
See me see trouble o

Crowds surged through the store as they battled to purchase one of the Polaroid 40inch HD TVs which is now out of stock across Asda stores

A lot of the deals are really cool but i don't think i can bear a broken bone. I can swallow any pain killers because of a T.V but for those who have the strength and body frame to survive the mayhem i say go for it. So did anybody get any good deal today?

That is all folks. Hope you enjoyed today's post. Thanks for stopping by.

Luv ya,

  2. Honestly if I was getting like ten items with $100 discount on each which would total to $1000 savings i might be tempted to try going there but what I found ridiculous was people going there just to buy one item. It is so amazing.
