For some reason while having to cover Black Friday, I'm always drawn to the guys that have to aimlessly look and act like they are having a grand ole time with the wife and sometimes Mother-in-law while in reality, they'd much rather be watching a game or piddling around in the garage. When Walking around the mall, you'll see these pathetic souls, myself included, usually napping on a bench, sitting in a massage chair in Brookstone, trying to act interested in a new mattress while they're just trying to take a little snooze so the day can be over that much quicker. Oh yeah, and my personal fav, the guy who has to wait for his lady to try on clothes in the women's section. How awkward he/we must feel. I mean, you can't peak in the dressing room, look at girly clothing, or check out other babes because they know exactly why you are visiting their side of the store. I'd recommend bringing a magazine.
Anyway, it was the usual scene at the malls today, thousands of eager shoppers trying to get the best bargains and be the first ones to rush in and scoop up as much hyped-up crap as they can find. I think I'll just wait for Cyber-Monday to do my shopping while watching some meaningless sporting event. It's so much easier being a guy.
