Black Friday in Oklahoma

· No Comments

Well, it’s come and gone—the biggest shopping day of the year.  I’m talking about Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving in which stores offer huge discounts on great holiday gifts.  But this year, like every year, we’ve heard some horror stories, too.  A Wal-Mart employee was tripped and trampled under the feet of eager shoppers at one store in another state.  Other locations had people fighting over the last piece of merchandise.

 I’m glad to report, though, that Black Friday in Oklahoma wasn’t marred by any of these kinds of things (or at least, none that I’ve heard of).  I was actually a Black Friday shopper this year.  It was the first time I’ve ever headed out to Wal-Mart at 5 am on the day after the holiday, and I was pleasantly surprised.  Yes, there were a lot of people there, but no one was rude.  The store employees had everything under control and were incredibly helpful, especially the employee who helped me get my new 50 inch TV in the trunk of my car.  I know people in other cities simply fear the day, but here in Oklahoma City, common sense and manners continued to be placed ahead of commercialism.
