Just No.

My mother just told me she wanted to go to Walmart today for a $12.00 vacuum.
Not for all the rice in China would I go near a Walmart on an ordinary day.  During a Black Friday sale, you couldn't get me within a mile of a Walmart if you gave me a lifetime supply of Swiss chocolate. (Mmmmm.... Toblerone.)
It took me 15 minutes to convince her to let me try online.  It took me 2 minutes to locate the same hand-held vacuum on Amazon for $15.00 and add it to a few other items I was going to buy anyway, thus getting their free shipping deal.
And we are NOT going near a Walmart.
(Thanks, Amazon.)

  1. Probably a wise decision. I've seen stampedes on the news and everything with Black Friday, and now it's in the UK. Why? It's not like it's a holiday over here, but I bet the shops do well out of it.
