Why I Stay Home on Black Friday

Black Friday is the magical day of the year where people rush the entryways of stores to combat one another over marked down goods. Those of us who don’t enjoy engaging in physical combat have learned to stay home and partake in the deals being offered online if we partake at all. Every year there is a story or two that reminds me why I stay home on Black Friday, this year was no exception:

Black Friday got off to a rowdy start at a San Antonio mall where police say one shopper pulled a gun on another who punched him in the face while they were waiting in line at a Sears store.

Why go through such stresses when discounted goods can be found online? I purchased a refurbished iPhone 5 for a good price without having to worry about getting punched in the face or having a gun pulled on me.
