Is everyone REALLY shopping today?
Author: Maggie Washo
As I sit here at my desk, still in a food coma from yesterday, it is becoming increasingly evident that I am only one of about three other people working today.
Okay, I exaggerate. But it does seem that no one I am trying to do business with is doing business today. Or tomorrow. Not until Monday, December 1st, it would seem.
So now I’m wondering if it is because they are all shopping. I have NEVER been shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. (Also known as Black Friday, as retailers are “in the black” due to the large amount of shoppers). I’m not sure what sort of deals are offered but for me to fight the advertised crowds, I think they would have to be giving things away for free.
No. I would much rather sit here and try to get ahead while everyone else is shopping. Maybe I’ll go shopping on December 1st. When everyone else gets back into the office.
