Any accountants on the Black Friday bandwagon?

Have accountants embraced Black Friday, or are they just about managing to delete all the spam?

Having just deleted about 30 BF emails I have set up a mailbox rule to delete anything with Black Friday in the subject, but I did wonder if Black Friday fever has gripped our esteemed profession, and if so, what special not to be missed offers are out there?

Too busy. Spent all morning taking our lass to Ringway so she can fly out to her mum's in Holywood for the weekend and now catching up on this morning's World Cup semi.

One of our suppliers, of industrial castors, was trying to jazz things up with black friday offers.

That's got to be a hard job, surely?

I doubt they were ever £700 per ticket. And I doubt they ever will be.

Checking now, it seems the 'Black Friday' offer has been extended to Sunday. What's the betting it'll be extended again?

I'm feeling pretty sick of the Black Friday (more like week) of spam.

Whether or not you have previously unsubscribed from newsletters BF is just open season for spam.

I have certainly not been adding to this nonsense with 20% off offers on tax returns.

Yorkshire folk giving money away ?

They'll be adding 5% on to the fees they quote, obviously.

Why? It's a scam anyway. It's American, and it's part of the independence celebrations.

Why she would assist the yanks celebrating their independence from us?

It's not part of their independence celebrations. It goes back further than that.

More to do with stealing land from the indigenous population. Something the British - and, in particular, the English - are well noted for over the last few centuries.
