    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Unfortunately, I get paid to leave the house. I agree with the sentiment though.

Stuff was flying everywhere and wrappings looked like body parts and skin sailing through the air.

    Wife did get the items she wanted from the pile but to me what was saved in cost simply did not add up to the pushing, shoving and bumping by everyone.
    Good response. Today was relatively quiet compared to a few years ago and this is good because we don't have the staff of even for years ago and not all of the staff we have are competent. Quiet meant that those of us who know what we're doing could compensate. Still, I don't love twelve hours days of catering to locusts on two legs and even a quiet Black Friday is annoying as ****.

    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    I don't get why we even do black friday in europe, we don't have thanks giving, it's dumb. But it's thankfully way more chill. There were more people out shopping than usual, but nobody is tearing anyone else apart, just a bit more crowded than I like. I shouldn't complain, the phone I've been eyeing for like two months was marked down, and my old one is really on its last leg. I can both think it's a really stupid capitalistic stunt, and benefit from a sale ^^

    Here's a not-so-fun fact about Black Fridays so many years ago, a person at Walmart died during Black Friday during a stampede.

    I remember that. It's so unfortunate that happened. I hope that never happens again. Physical things are worth a human life. I think that is why Cyber Monday has come around.

    Same here! Well, I went out for a walk - but I don't want to drive or go near any stores. My grocery shopping is very limited in the month between Thanksgiving & Christmas. It's Hibernation Season!

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    No! I have a cold! I don't know why I have suddenly got the onset of a cold. I felt my throat be sore yesterday afternoon after dinner, but hoped it was nothing. Well last night after taking a nap I got up and felt like crap. So I went to Wal-Mart and got some stuff like ice cream and soup to help me out. Now I'm still feeling like crap. I think I will have to call in to work at the job I have been working for ManPower (the employment agency). I don't want to. I want them to think I can't or don't want to do the job or am not dependable. However, I do not want to get anyone sick. This so sucks.

    Well I found out that I have CoVid today. I went to the doctor at the Urgent Care. I was given a few tests and I was tested Positive with CoVid. I was and still am shocked. I've had my CoVid shots and I still got it. So I am holed up for at least five days at home. I just hate that it happened to me.

    The same thing happen to my friend and his whole family a few days ago. Can we all admit that the pandemic isn't fake? I'm so sorry about that, anubisa.

    Thanks BMH. I think people aren't wearing their masks or following mask protocols. I work at a rehab facility where there is a CoVid unit. Though I don't go there since I work up front, I will probably have to have another test before I go back to work. It sucks, but I have to be safe before I go back to my job.

    Re: New Rant Thread X

    Why, why does the world or whatever hate me? It's like I am being focused on right now. About five or six days ago I got a bump on the rough of my mouth. At first I thought it was like a regular bump. However, it's got worse over the past days. I was going to go see someone yesterday but my mom and dad talked me out of it and told me to swish sea salt water in my mouth then use lidocaine. Well that hasn't worked. So I am going to see the WVU Dental Clinic. They accept people without appointments. It just seems like I am cursed right now. Ugh! Help me!
