What are your plans for the day after Thanksgiving?
“Nothing. Watching TV…nothing. No shopping. I don’t have to. Don’t have any family and friends to buy for, so I don’t need to.”
“I’m going to be working. I’m opening up Crossroads Market. So my plans are to work, and then sleep. I am not going to be shopping. I usually wait until Sunday to go shopping, when people are tired.”
“I’m probably going to my dad’s house and doing some shopping. We’ll go to whichever stores have the best deals.”
“Sleeping until I wake up. I don’t usually go shopping the day after. I worked retail for years and it’s a nightmare. I’d just rather stay away.”
“I plan to stay locked up in my bedroom and enjoy it. I don’t go shopping after Thanksgiving. It’s too hectic. I don’t need this kind of stuff that bad.”
