Black Friday shoppers in Canada go in with the best intentions. We vow to be civilized and friendly in our quest for deals. But that doesn’t mean we don’t fail. Here are some Black Friday Fails you may have experienced.
Can’t Find Parking
You think you have this whole Black Friday thing nailed. You know what stores you want to hit up, you know when they open, and you know what sales they’re each running. The only issue is everyone else had the same plan, and there is zero parking in the lot.
You Spent More Preparing for Black Friday than You Saved
You bought a new tent and sleeping bag so you could camp outside the store the night before Black Friday. You wake up with a sore back and bags under your eyes, and then you buy your items. You then realize you have saved less than the cost of your new tent.
You Think You’re Getting a Better Deal than You Actually Are
If it was just any other day and you were shopping, you would probably think twice about dropping $100 on a handbag or a pair of shoes. You just can’t justify it. But slap a big sale tag on those items on Black Friday, and you convince yourself that those $300 jeans marked down to $100 are the best deal ever. At the end of the day, you’re still down $100.
Delivery Not Included
You found an amazing high-definition smart TV for 70% off at the electronics store, and you impulse-buy it during a Black Friday sale. This is great, except you drove your Vespa to the store. Turns out, this particular store doesn’t offer delivery. Have fun getting it home now!
Forgot Your Money, Credit Card and/or Wallet at Home
You made your lists and checked them twice. You have your whole Black Friday planned out. You camp out for a door crasher sale to make sure you’re one of the first people in line. You select your item, walk up to the cash to pay and then discover you forgot your wallet at home.
You Let Someone Else Have the Item You Wanted because You’re So Polite
Even though you dealt with the lines and the wait times specifically to buy one item, when there was only one left on the shelf you gallantly let the little old lady next to you have it because you’re just so darn Canadian. You go home empty-handed.
