Past Imperfect – #331

Nurse Mae: “Doctor, do you see what I’m seeing in the Emergency Room?”

Doctor John: “I’m not quite certain, but it appears to look like what you think it looks like.”

Nurse Mae: “So this means…”

Doctor John: “The casualties from Black Friday Shopping have already begun to arrive.”


Previously published in “Crusty Pie” and “Bonnywood Manor”. No changes made, as many folks continue to be rude and insufferable lunatics in their maniacal quests to save ten bucks on a toaster oven that they are never going to use once they get it home…

  1. Hahah brilliant! 😂 I’m grateful to be spending Black Friday in the safety of my home, protected from the angry mob of shoppers by my laptop. The only injury we’ll get getting is RSI from clicking through so many offers on Amazon (why don’t they let you do a word search of the offers?!).

  2. Not to disparage your delightful post whatsoever, but I’ve never witnessed rudeness during Black Friday sales. The few times I’ve gone (when you have kids and little money, sometimes you just gotta) most people seemed to be enjoying themselves. I always figured the rude-verging-on-violent behavior was more on the East coast, and probably only in select areas that the news chose to cover.
    Of course, I may be naive.
    It wouldn’t be the first time. 😉

    • Thank you for sharing your humanity-positive thoughts on the matter. On a related note, perhaps you might accept my cordial invitation to experience the Black Friday madness in Dallas. Because there’s a lot of folks around here who didn’t get the memo about simply “enjoying themselves” rather than “destroy the planet in an expedited manner”… 😉
