I deleted email a few minutes ago because it had Cyber Monday in the subject line.

But shopping on-line does not provide you with that Honey Booboo-style experience of poorly dressed, overweight, rude people hopped up on Cinnabon and excessive consumerism.

I got all my Christmas shopping done in June. Hooray for Amazon.com

My family and my wife's family are Jehovah Witnesses, so we'd don't have to buy them shiat. I love getting my kids and their kids together after Christmas. My kids are playing with whatever awesome toys they got while Door Knocker Jr and his bike riding sister are acting out scenes from the bible with bags of sand. Say what you will about organized religion, but Jehovah Witnesses have to be the biggest losers of them all. No wonder they have to seduce Guatemalans and Fillipinos directly off the plane. No one with two nickles to rub together or a lick of sense would sign up for a religion that doesn't let you have cake and presents on your birthday. Do you really think christ gives a fark if you blow out a candle and open up a few gifts? If that's seriously a concern for your religion, then your belief system has the depth of a baby pool. I hope they all end up in hell with the farking Amish.

Heh. Pretty good. I'm as atheisty as the next farker but I agree with the JW on this one thing. Fark holidays.

I just bought some stuff from a Swiss website, being shipped via China post air mail, which guarantees delivery within 5-60 business days, so I'm getting a kick...

Oh Amazon, you filthy whore. I just checked and some book I've been wanting forever is now marked wayyyy down. But no Prime... must.spend.$25.
 
2012-11-26 09:49:34 AM
Just bought a huge barrel of Cialis for, like, 15% off from my internet pharmacy, and two liters of fire sale Buffalo Trace with free shipping from my internet liquor store. Guess who's getting more than 4 hours of continuous erection for Christmas? ANYBODY WHO WANTS IT, THAT'S WHO.

Seems like the best time to buy christmas gifts, they're sure to be delivered in time and I don't have to get off my ass.

Best regular poster on Fark, hands down.

Keep 'em coming, man.
 
2012-11-26 09:55:31 AM
My family now does all non-food, and non-clothing shopping online. If you don't eat it, and you don't have to try it on, there is no reason to step foot in a store these days.

On black Friday we got hair cuts, took the kids to a park, and had a nice relaxing day off with the family.

/yes I'm better than you
 
2012-11-26 09:58:21 AM
If you do your research, though, and log on early, you can secure the bargains you want

Someone translate that for me please.

Amazon does not give a shiat if you are logged on from midnight, the deal for the PS3 at 3pm is still sold out in seconds with virtually no chance of me getting it.
 
2012-11-26 10:00:18 AM
Unlike Black Friday though, I don't get arrested for shopping naked on Cyber Monday.

Your combination of lying and being snarky is one of the reasons you are one of my favorites. I thoroughly enjoy it every time one of your posts flies over someones head, and they get all worked up. Keep em coming man!

Two thoughts
1: Hasn't the concept of 'cyber Monday' been debunked as myth and it's not the most popular day of online shopping, but a marketing ploy for the sheep pictured above?

2. For all of the arrogance coming from online Christmas shoppers, yes you're so intelligent to be able to avoid crowds. You also help a system that provides one local job, the mailman, and by extension one person earning a taxable wage putting money back into your economy. The rest will go out of city, county, state, and country. Instead try supporting the owner of the store, the employee he/she hires to sell to you, the property owner they rent from, the landscaping company they hire to plow snow and mow the lawn, and if possible the local manufacturer that created the product. Keep your money local and it will come back to you in the from of a stronger community with a larger tax base providing a higher standard of living. Or buy Wisconsin products from Wisconsin companies. We'd be happy to have your money.

I went around seeing what all the hype about Cyber Monday is about and.... Yeah the sales are farking awful.. The average discount I've seen is about 17%... Are people this stupid to fall for this shiat?

Doesn't pretty much everyone do that these days?

My wife buys almost all her clothing online. She buys from stores that offer free shipping on returns or where she can return at a local B&M store. If it doesn't fit, back it goes.

Well its too late to put the Genie back into the bottle. It can work the other way around though. Going on Amazon you can find some great unique products being made in America that compete with the big box stuff. Personally I see little benefit to the local economy going to walmart that simply carries mostly Chinese made corporate stuff.

One item bought recently was a showerhead from some company called AnaBath. This thing seriously rocks and is made by some company in California. Even if the manufacturing is in China or something I would rather get something like that than a waterpik being carried by Sears.

Yeah. At the end of the day, I don't think it's being able to shop in your pajamas that's the big draw. It just happens that while in your pajamas, it's easier to shop much smarter than you would otherwise... much more convenient to do comparisons and look at reviews and whatnot. And shop in places that you may have otherwise never even heard of.

Let's say you have a non-essential errand you'd like to run but before leaving you look at the time and notice it's rush hour. I think if you value your free time you'd elect to wait until later to do it.
 
2012-11-26 11:43:13 AM
So I get the fact that we collectively hate having the corporations to tell us to go buy stuff anyway, but Cyber Monday doesn't bother me. I can filter spam emails, but I can't filter a real life crowd. That would be a sick super power.

/$120 for a picnic basket? No. Fark you.
