Default Black Friday



What kind of a vile creature invented "Black Friday?" I mean, what could be worse than waking up at 4 am only to stand in line for hours with other schmucks naive enough to fall for the same marketing trick as you? And don't act like you've never don...

HaHa!I can't stand going into a walmart or target on a regular day. It's amazing how these people have the tolerance being around in all that commotion.

Nope Ryan, I can honestly say I've never done it. I refuse to get trapped into the whole bogus Black Friday thing along with the countless other people that flock to the stores to get that "special" item they just have to have before they're gone.

Never done it either. The wife and I decided a few years ago that we would no longer be sucked into the commercialism of Christmas. We don't buy Christmas gifts any more. During the season we just enjoy the company of family, friends, and each other, without all the stress. If we want to buy a gift, we just do it any old time, because we want to. It seems to mean more that way.

My wife lost her job a few weeks ago so where broke and cant go shopping. Besides that if the greedy ass stores would lower thier prices thru out the year they wouldnt need a black friday sale. The mark ups are huge!

I used to (unfortunately) work at Wal-Mart (there was absolutely NOTHING else available in this podunk town) and I had to work every "Black friday" Even though our Wally World is, from what I hear, the smallest in CA, the stories I could tell you....I watched people ramming each other with shopping carts, stealing TV's and Laptops lout of someone else's cart so they wouldn't have to wait in line to get one, hell we had one guy come in, go to Sporting Goods, try on some batting gloves, then over to the baseball bats, tried the wood ones, settled on an aluminum bat (this is all on video) waltz on over to the TV display, and destroy 7 or 8 big screens, before we could get there to stop him...and I tell you what, that guy had played baseball before, he knew how to hit, every single one of the TV screens were hit right in the strike zone, no low and outside, no high and inside, etc etc
I am glad I don't have to work there anymore.

Shit - I didn't even think about looking for a poster when I was there. Order up!

P.S., no I've never been shopping on black friday and I don't plan to any time soon. But Sears has some pretty damned good deals on toolboxes that got me thinking!

I wish i could work there but i cant afford it. My brother worked nights at one of the 24hr walmarts here in Tallahassee for about 2yrs. This is a college town, home of FSU. The serority girls have pajama night every once in awhile and come in shopping in their night gowns and freakin Teddies!! That would be awsome. I guess i just want to work on that night. HA!
