Default It's spread to Australia

Black Friday that is. The American custom of Black Friday has now spread to Australia, just about every shop is now advertising it. Here are a couple of examples.

The markdowns after the markups. You have people camping in front of shops?

I don't think that our discounts justify that.

Don't count on it. My mother used to have me drive her 15 or so miles, one way, so she could pay 5 cents less for a can of peas. That wasn't justified either, but she still insisted.

Black Friday used to be any Friday that happened on the 13th of any month,and bad luck was more likely to occur. Just more superstitious claptrap really. James jj777746

I'm sure that the petrol (gas) cost more than 5 cents.

Don't leave out the time spent, about 5 miles of city traffic, and the bother.

Yeah, time with good ole ma. Time enough to drive me half nuts 4 or 5 times over. I'm sure she did things on purpose. You've all seen the cartoons of the golfer with his pants up to his armpits. She found a pair of pants that actually did come up to my armpits. And then was disappointed when I refused to wear them. I loved her, but pretty much couldn't stand being with her more than about 5-10 minutes.
