Have you succumbed to the siren song of post-Thanksgiving sales yet?
Did you find yourself lining up at Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart or another giant retailer at midnight, a smear of cranberry sauce on your lips and indigestion rising in your chest mitigated only by the eager anticipation of scoring a deeply discounted drone, a hella cheap hoverboard, low-priced lux items, or perhaps a Fitbit for a pittance?
Is FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) your MO?
For the next few weeks from Black Friday on, there’ll be Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, Mild Existential Crisis Tuesday, all the way along until Christmas Eve, aka Total Meltdown Thursday, when if you haven’t figured it out by then, it’s all over…
That is until THE VERY NEXT DAY, when the post-holiday sales hit, promising to bring fantastic deals on everything that wasn’t snagged for the holidaze… or maybe it was, but now you’re lucky enough to buy someone else’s rejects.
Because that’s what we call a bah-humbargain.
