When I worked at London Drugs, I routinely saw people fight over Ferrero Rocher. Why? Because Asians think that shit is fancy and give it as gifts all the damned time. You know if you're Chinese, you've received a ton of Ferrero Rocher as gifts. It gets violent, man...like actual fights. Someone once knocked over an old lady and took the chocolate out of her hands.
All this to save a buck on chocolate. Really?
I don't remember where I read it but I was looking at a Black Friday guide for Americans and it says not to leave your house unless you're saving $200 or more because otherwise, it just isn't worth fighting the crowds for.
