Yearly 'dis the Consumer Week'

Blog friend Terri sums up my discontent -- with her usual panache.

Boo-freaking-hoo that somebody might shop on Black Friday or buy something on Cyber Monday or not -- and I confess this was new to me -- "give back" on Giving Tuesday:

I refuse to play anymore.

I went out on Black Friday (ooooh) in search of 40% off items not only for others, but for myself! I hate to shop and barely do it all year long so when the shopping season hits, I generally need something. Others (Hi Mom!) love to shop. I don't know if they went out on Black Friday or Saturday or whenever but this economy is run by consumers. We all ought to get a medal for spending a bit this last weekend so the retail stores can get a feel for how the season is going to be on them.

Clearly, Ayn Rand is up in Heaven, smiling down Christmas wishes for this! Thing whole the read.
