    Black Fri? NFW!
    Amateurs should stay away from places professionals fear to tread.
    (men leave that madness to the ladies)

    I'm telling the nieces & nephews news of this tragic accident:

    I wonder how they felt after a 30 degree temp drop from the high winds in the wee hours of the morning???.... :D I waited in my car and stayed warm till the doors opened up at 4:00 am... That's part of the reason why I went back home empty handed... :(

    I was just at the hardware store before they closed, all the deals they had were still there, but everything was a mail in rebate, that means you pay the overpriced price, then wait six months to maby get your money back.

    I went with the wife last year at 0300. Drove to Best Buy for a LCD TV. Got there, the lne was literally surrounding the store on all sides. People were camped out in tents. I pushed steering to 180 and headed south. Made it to WalMart. What a ZOO! Saved about $30 on a 44 inch LCD. I will NEVER do that again!!!!

    Oh, and Ryan, thanks for the HAMB!!

    In St. Louis Missouri a lady in line at a walmart got trampled by hundreds of people to death. I went at 5 once at best buy and ended up with nothing but a head ache and being pissed off.
    It`s a joke! This guy on the tv said he waited three days to save 500 bux after spending 2 grand and people`s cars got towed away.

    The last time I was in a mall or retail store on Black Friday morning was when I worked in a department store ... that was 40 years ago. I haven't been back on BF since.

    I'd rather slam my tongue in a car door than go to the mall.

    LOL,,, I am not a huge bad ass, but I have never gotten up before the break of day to ever go shopping,,,,

    BUT, if I would get up early to buy one of those JJ shirts and the JN poster... too cool
     
  17. My friend tells me he spent hours at Walmart starting at 3AM to buy 2 TV's. He doesn't watch TV. Just bought em because he could. Already considering returning them

    Funny, my wife says to me this morning (she started at midnight) "its crazy out here!!!"

    My reply @745a "Huh, really? I'm at NAPA and I'm their only customer."

    Got my stuff and split, it was great

    Whoa you must be the 'macho man dark side' of Black Friday.
    Anything that might help stimulate a failing economy can't be all bad.

  22. what ?
    shopping ?did someone fail to mention a swap meet ?
    the only reason to get up early and buy anything ..

    if you feel that you can not find bargains any time other than today your a freakin lemming

    its traditonal .. i guess

    hope that tie in is a broader sense of the word

    funny it ain't even funny ,,sad sad sad

    even working in retail i never believed in it
    really a item only in the last 10-12 years

    Black Friday, the day of infamy, the morning after you washed all that greasy goo down your sink drain, the day after your uncle Bo Bo who weighs 350 cracked your toilet, the day after your sister in law threw a whole turkey carcass down your 49 dollar garbage disposal. I get up at 4 am to correct the carnage, 14 hours of rodding the pipes after turkey day, I shop on the 23rd, festivus for the restofus, haha!

    I've never gone out to shop on "Black Friday" because I've always had to work on that day. All except this year. I don't have a job. Can't afford to now.
     
  28. From a woman's point of view: Never been to one, don't intend to go....The only time I get up before 5 freakin AM is if we are going to Hershey, far away car show, Maxton, Bonneville, you get the picture?? Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.....
