Why do we have Black Friday? People should have to stay home on Thanksgiving and the weekend after and be thankful, dammit!

I'm thankful. I'm thankful I'm going to get a 42" flat screen tv and blue ray for under $300.00.

Lol.

Every time I have to use a public restroom I'm surprised at how many people must walk around with a magic marker.

The looks on driver's faces behind me would be priceless when the light turns from red to green.
Aw you have GOT to do that! I wired a freinds cars brake lights to his horn onceXD

Why is the day after Thanksgiving called Black Friday even though it is such a good day for retailers?

Actually, this has a serious answer. Traditionally, red ink was used for recording debts, while black was used for recording positive numbers. So accountants want to see things "in the black." So if large retailers operate on a deficit through much of the year, Black Friday is when they start to bring their figures into the black. After that point, it is supposedly all profits.

Well, I did think of replacing the horn sound with that of a charging rhino.

I mean, who wouldn't get out of the way when they heard that?

Where I failed was trying to get a recording of a charging rhino. I was too busy trying to get out of the way and neglected to hit the "record" button.

And now, losses are recorded in parenthesis.

In writing, a phrase or idea in parenthesis is one that you can neglect to read without altering the main point (just like parenthesis in a play script is something spoken to the audience, that the other actors don't hear).

Red ink just draws attention to a dire situation. But you can safely ignore parenthetical statements (until the bank sends Tony the Louisville Slugger (his preferred weapon) to collect on your debts.)

I wonder if I could combine a piano keyboard with a computer keyboard.

That way, if I made a good post, I could also compose a nifty tune at the same time.

Then again, you'd only have 7 letters to type with, and if you want to say something sharp, you only have to add #. Or if your words come out wrong, add a "b" to the end.

Why do so many people in grocery stores park their carts on one side and then step to the other side to get the product they want, thus blocking the entire walkway???

Then they look up and say: Oh, I'm sorry. I want to say, then don't do that, but instead I say, that's OK, cause......I want to live to shop another day..........

Good point. And I must plead guilty.

Guilty as charged.:) Thinking of the cart as a vehicle and staying on the right side of the aisle. Reaching across to gather items on the far side. Rather than make an awkward U-turn and doing the same aisle twice.

Happy TG.

Why would people who have complained about the horrid economy all year line up to shop on Black Friday? Spending credit money they do not have while bragging about how much they saved?

Ah ha ha ha! Sucks when the body just takes over like that! Ever put a hot water bottle on an exhaust? Use a jubilee clip if you do. Cable ties or tape simply wont hold. The bang when it finally pops could easily bring the police around!
