Yesterday on the show, we talked about all the madness from Black Friday.
Many stores opened early on Thanksgiving night and there were huge lines of people waiting anxiously for ridiculous low prices on holiday gifts. According to a survey by the National Retail Federation, a record 247 million shoppers visited stores and websites this weekend which is up 9% from 226 million last year.
Like previous Black Friday’s, many reports came in on the violence and insanity that occurred.
There was one story about a Massachusetts man who forgot his girlfriend's 2-year-old son behind after taking home his brand new 51-inch flat screen television and left the toddler behind.
If you check out the video below, you can see how people were fighting like animals to get their hands on a phone!
I understand trying to get a good deal but why do people have to be jerks about it? We posed the question yesterday to the Rock-A-Holics what crazy things they have seen while out shopping on Black Friday and one listener said he saw a woman taze the person in front of her just to get the last TV!
We also had a few other callers who said how rude some women were to them while out shopping on Friday.
What does this say about women? According to Oprah, females are the evolved gender so why do some women think it’s ok to name call, punch, shove, and event taze other people just for a material object?
I started to watch your video on Black Friday and could not finish it. All these people are morons. It upset me that we can be so stupid about a simple cost saving.
Oh, BJ, so you know... Oprah is God and yes, we are the evolved/superior gender. Except, when there's a massive sale event involved!
Love your show very much and listen closely when you talk about men and women. I have learned a few things. Thank you. I am 52 and remember the "what are you going to give to me/do for me" era.
