Psychologists Worried About Growth Of ‘Post Black Friday Buying Syndrome’

Psychologists Worried About Growth Of ‘Post Black Friday Buying Syndrome’

Mental authorities are warning of the expansion of a relatively new psychic dysfunction they have named PBFBS- Post Black Friday Buying Syndrome.

It is the description given when the shopping instinct that many have developed in many countries continues to push on a person to buy, buy, buy even when all the stores are closed.

This mass consumerism, rising to the level of a nationwide obsession the last 50 years, has supplanted the normal Christmas spirit of relaxation and giving with one of frenzied must-having and rudeness.

Over the 2013 holidays mental health authorities have noticed an uptick in the manifestation of the engram. “People just can’t seem to stop shopping. We have seen individuals; and not just a small number; with their faces pressed hard against the door glass, pleading to get in hours after the shop has closed. They just seem to have an uncontrollable need to buy things!” stated Neil Corndye of the Alfred Neuman School of Brain Research.

“We believe that it is all the conditioning by advertisers using our modem mass media to convince the public that the only thing that gives happiness is buying more things!”

Things got especially tense at a couple stores Christmas Eve and day. People were pounding on the closed and locked doors and hurling very non Christ-like obscenities at the employees cleaning inside.

“They would just look at us and keep working like they were really tired and just wanted to get home! What the hell is wrong with them? I demand my American right to shop when I want! These people should all be fired for being slackers!” complained Alan Starchedshirt, a writer for a conservative think tank. “They all have to be Communists, every one of them!”

Due to this phenomena, Walmart and several other large retailers are contemplating staying open on Christmas. “I think the only way to combat this illness is to give into it and give them what they want. In fact, I think we should just be open all the time!” stated all four of the Sam Walmart siblings, all of whom are among the top ten richest people in the U.S., and who are the only ones who would profit from the longer opening hours.

Some suspect that they were not beneath paying actors to play these roles to convince the American society to having longer opening hours during the seasons.

I was born and I died. Being a disembodied entity makes it very cheap for me to get by. Not having to worry about eating or having a place to live gives me a lot of freedom to squander my time writing occasionally funny articles. See more almost funny stuff at http://inyear252509.wordpress.com/

  1. The recent South Park three-part episode is a hilarious illustration of this insane consumerism.
