The comments section blaming 'Obama' and 'welfare' certainly speaks volumes of the magnitude of American stupidity on display.

I can conceive of nothing short of Beatles reunion* tickets for which I would camp out, or even wait in line for more than 30 minutes.

* And even then, only if it featured the reanimated corpses of John and George.

This morning our local TV news did a piece that had three rather large young ladies(?) That were setting up for black Friday.
They said that even if they didn't get the, whatever they were hopping for.
That maybe they would meet some cute guys.

zvoidx: I've always wondered; when someone camps out to be one of the first in line; on the morning of the sale does the store always honor this? I've seen so many videos of BF where walls of people are rushing the store/how would camping out really matter?


Some time before opening, Best Buy sends an employee to walk down the line and offers each person up to 2 tickets for doorbuster items of their choice. To clarify, a ticket is for a specific doorbuster item (e.g. maybe you are there for the TV that's half price, another guy wants a ticket for the cheap laptop, you would receive different tickets).

The doorbuster items are not on shelves but instead must be claimed at a special booth by showing your ticket. Mobbing the front door at opening time won't do you any good because you don't have any tickets for the good prices.

Despite what you're reading here in this thread, most stores do genuinely have 1 or 2 deals that are truly exceptional, and I would totally consider such deals if there was 0 hassle involved. But it's not 0 hassle, it's more like near-infinite hassle, so I do not shop on Black Friday. Though if you wait until the middle of the afternoon, it's just like any other day of the Christmas shopping season - crowded but bearable with no significant deals to be had.

Black Friday is the day I sleep in, spend the day in my jammies putting up the Christmas tree, eating turkey/dressing/cranberry/gravy sandwiches and drinking wine.

There's nothing that can get me near a store that entire weekend.


You sound fat. Maybe camping out for a week in front of Wal-Mart eating nothing but urban squab roasted over a Zippo lighter would do you some good.

You either get the TV, or your next-of-kin get a nice settlement.

Naah, they'll be fine. There's probably a White Castle or Taco Bell across the parking lot. I bet they won't even have to change their eating habits.

People like this think "opportunity cost" is what you pay to get those great videos of how to turn your debt into wealth by working at home and powering your car using nothing but water.

No, don't build in a flatscreen. That would be rewarding their behavior. Just wall them in with regular bricks. Airholes optional.

FTA:"Last year, I came on Tuesday and I was 17th in line," she said. "They only had 15 TVs."

I think I can understand where she's coming from on this one. I wouldn't be waiting in line for 3 days for a few hundred bucks off a TV, but it would really suck to go through that and NOT get your cheap TV.

If you ever find yourself camping out overnight to buy something that isn't absolutely necessary for your survival, just kill yourself. You obviously have nothing to live for anyway.
