This year will be my third year doin this, yet every year i tell myself, "I WILL NEVER EVER DO THIS **** AGAIN"

Black Friday, for those who don't know, is the Friday after Thanksgiving where stores in the US offer MASSIVE savings on almost everything, but to get these massive savings, you usually have to camp out in front of the store all night long.

ALL MOTHER PHUCKING NIGHT LONG IN THE FREEZING COLD WITH 2-500 DISGRUNTLED PEOPLE BEHIND AND IN FRONT OF YOU.

http://www.blackfriday.info/


An example of these savings at electronic stores you ask??

try a $2,000 flat screen TV, down to $1,000 (with limited numbers in each store)

maybe, a $300 digital camera, down to, anywhere from $100-150

and laptops around $299


The first year i did it, 10 to 15 police cars swarmed the place at like 4:59 because a bunch of black guys decided not to get in line, but storm the doors at the last second and fights broke out.

i went to best buy last year at like 5 am, all the great stuff was gone, but dunkin donuts was giving out free coffee and doughnuts so it was ok. : D

u guys actually know what black friday is rite??

it used to be the first day of the year that stores started to make a profit
so to expand on that they lowered the price on everything so more stuff would be bought and more money was made
that is no longer the case but the stores like to keep the spirit open

i did that 1 yr
staying out in the cold
yeah.......
never doing that again

stop bitching about having to wait in line and have some sympathy for those who have to work on black friday at the very store you will be shopping at. Just imagine working a 5am-2pm shift on BLACK FRIDAY at a store like target. i am NOT looking forward to that. But oh well, at least they cater.

Hey, I don't feel so good.

2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food

2. Open C:
3. Click on WINDOWS.
4. Open the folder "Media."

6. Listen.

I've never gone out on black friday, but I want to run a dual 24" monitor setup, so I'll be going to best buy to get these Acer's the will have.

my job REQUIRES everyone to work on Black Friday, almost no exceptions, and they get to choose your shift, which will probably be about 5:30am-2pm or even later than that. and i work at a hardware store so theres tons of shit to do, and all the old carpenters and anyone remodeling or anything will be in line, which means old men, or oldER men....although we get a few hot chicks coming through

I go pretty much every year. Every store is like a war-zone. I remember people grabbing USB flash drives at Circuit City like they were candy.

I think I'm getting a printer somewhere this year.

Black Friday is my favorite holiday, period.
However, I'm more of a clothes shopper than electronics.

Is this holiday only for electronics like at Best Buy and stuff? Does Guitar Center have any good sales on guitars this day?

#23

That's really quite ridiculous. Sounds more like some sort of sick psychology experiment than a holiday to me.
#26
I work at Wal-Mart, and our black friday started last Friday, we're supposedly going to have Friday specials every friday until Christmas, with Black Friday being the biggest though.

I have to work on BF, but luckily I don't go in until 3pm =D

Black Friday is merely an excuse for soccer moms to get violent over a dollhouse for their 5-year-old daughter.

Internet Shopping FTW.

no thanks, I'm canadian anyways, and our thanks giving is long gone

You still have Boxing Day sales, though.

Basically the same thing, but with an actual holiday attached.

ive never gone before. i might this year. idk.


i'll probably just be hungover that morning though, so its unlikely i'll be getting up early to shop.
#34
i've never done black friday, i feel like it should be an experience that i should take part in one day. it will probably just disgust me though.
#35
don't go to the stores when you know there will be thousands of other people lining up in the front.

Well I'm working at -Kenneth Cole New York (I like to do the fonts because it actually looks surprisingly like the logo), so I'm hoping for a good commissions check coming from that weekend.

I got paid time and a half for the entire day last year.
Thankfully I'm not working retail this time.
