We’ve all seen those wild social videos of past Black Fridays.
Hundreds of people camping out in lines, then frantically rushing into stores as soon as the doors open to get the best deals, not caring how many people they knock over in the process.
Middle-aged moms elbowing each other to get the best toys, and crowds running to a pile of 20 televisions that are half off...
Sounds like a social distancing nightmare, right? According to new data, other Americans think so, too.
