Well, since Black Friday is coming up, I have a few questions.

Has anyone shown up at a normal time, like 8am, and still gotten popular things, like an Xbox 360? What time should I line up and wait, if a store opens at 6am?

I used to wait outside Fry's Electronics from about 8pm the night before. Shit gets real man. Mostly everyone is in and out by 10am. from the rush.


Edit: And from 8pm I would be about 50 or so back in line.

Wikipedia can. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Friday_%28shopping%29
Basically, the day after Thanksgiving one year the stocks went WAY down, and now stores mark down stuff hella to prevent that from happening. It also means the start of Christmas shopping.

Broke people wake up early the day after Thanksgiving to buy shit for cheap. They flood every store like fucking zombies, I swear. It's the closest I'll ever get to the apocalypse.

Nah, with MW2 just being released and the new console to go with it, they're likely gonna go pretty quickly.

Yeah, in that case I'll just buy a 360 and then buy MW2 online or something. I think I'll line up about 2 or 3am, since I heard wal mart opens at 5am.

The whole thing of everyone going christmas shopping on one day is just retarded. Hasn't anyone ever thought "Hey, what if i do my shopping even earlier to avoid the crowds".

Even so, i doubt i'd get anything anyway.

Is it like in Dawn of the Dead? I have to see this for myself one day
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

I once saw an old lady punch a grown man just for a microwave during Black Friday. Crazy stuff happens there.
I wonder if Guitar Center is going to be cheap too....

I remember last year when an employee got stampeded when trying to open up the doors.

It's that competitive.

I'll probably head to the mall so I can get some CDs, or Wal-Mart for some generic clothes that I plan on getting.

I despise Black Friday. I work in retail, and because of it I really can't enjoy Thanksgiving, or the entire 4th quarter holiday season for that matter. Our store is opening up at midnight after Thanksgiving. MIDNIGHT for Christ's sake!!
