Black Friday Expectations Vs. Reality

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Bryant chapter.
Expectation: “I am going to get ALL my holiday shopping done!”
Reality: “Oh my gosh… all I bought were things for myself…”
Expectation: “I am going to beat all these old women to the door busters, they are going down!”
Reality: “I think I need to go to the hospital after that stampede that just ran past me”
Expectation: “I will just sleep all Thanksgiving day so I have lots of energy during Black Friday.”
Reality: “NEED.SLEEP.”
Expectation: “I am going to save so much money!!”
Reality: “I spent way more money than I needed to…”
Maybe next year Cyber Monday will be a better idea.
