Black Friday is the day after thanksgiving, the busiest shopping day of the year, retailers usually promote it by having one or two items that are substantially marked down (in limited quantities) and a bunch of other crap slightly marked down. You will frequently see people standing in line at four AM waiting for them to open the doors so that they can stampede around, elbowing, biting, clawing and kicking at each other for the chance to "save" $400 on a television or whatever. Then you stand in line for two hours to pay for your ill-gotten goods because the store only has three cashiers working.
Cyber Monday and Black Friday are American capitalist holidays.
What are you fellows talking about ... Cyber Monday? ... Black Friday?
Ah ... now it's clear. I'm more of a December 15ther.
It's just stuff us plebs know about...like manual labour.
Why I know about manual labor. I once attended the ground breaking of new building to house a family foundation. I was handed a shovel and asked to dig a hole ... the newspaper photographer wanted a photo. That is mighty hard work.
Wow, I totally misjudged you! And since you were obviously cutting lawns prior to the internal combustion engine...that must have been hard work.
