They need all hands on keyboards and mice for clicking online bargains as they appear?

I have no idea.

can they sue the school for danger money for being forced to join the punch up in Asda's telly aisle, or will they just have a lie in instead?

Surely no punch-ups this, year, VRG.  They will all be responsibly social distancing...won't they?

This has got to be an early April Fools, right? 🤔 

I’m afraid not, obviously I’m not naming the school but it’s true.

It won’t affect Mrs Moose now because today she has been alerted by track and trace that she has been in close contact with someone tested positive and therefore has to self isolate.

All the staff at Mrs Moose’s school have been given next Friday off to take advantage of Black Friday.

Why? all non essential shops are closed and it means the children will miss another day at school. Does it happen at all schools?

TBH, it sounds like an excuse to get everyone out of the building to give it a deep clean.

Slightly different, but 'related'.

One of the schools I taught at arranged a 'Christmas Shopping Day' for the staff (I guess it worked for the children, too). How they arranged it was imaginative: they used one of their 'Training' days to give the children (and staff) a day off. They replaced the 'Training' day with a series of two-hour after school 'Training' sessions. That way, everybody got a day off in December to go Christmas shopping but nobody lost any teaching.

Black Friday is now a week, which on one website I saw now means 10 days.

I got a nice deal on a laptop that I needed anyway. 20% off, bought it at 9am, click and collected it at 10.30am. On a Tuesday.

"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

Teachers need a day off to pamper themselves, because they don't get enough time off, what with half terms, Christmas, Easter & 8 weeks at summer, every weekend & bank holiday, it must be exhausting for their 0900-1530 Monday to Friday schedule. 

Where were you last Thursday?

Did Mrs. Moose participate in Black Friday in the end? 

I walked into town on Saturday (just to get out of the house, not participate in any shopping) and it was ridiculous, like any other normal Saturday, normal being non-Covid times. There was thousands of people about and maybe about 10 shops open. I went into WHSmiths and I have never seen it so rammed with people, you could barely move! I'm guessing there was so many people in cos so few other places were open but then, why were they about anyway? We weren't all just going for a walk I presume!

As I posted later in the thread Mrs Moose has been isolating because of contact with someone testing positive, therefore she hasn’t left our property. So not physically she hasn’t but her keyboard’s been red hot with white van’s queuing up to deliver. She managed to get her daily runs in though by running the 50 yards up and down our drive, averaging 4 miles each day.

Apologies Moose, didn't see that post.

I had a day out on Saturday, in Canterbury, the day after Black Friday (which now seems to last 2-3 weeks), and nowhere was open apart from supermarkets, offies, and M&S (which bend the rules any way). Even Boris' best mate Tim Martin couldn't open the Wetherspoons.
