Nezorf: I agree with the comments on this.Black friday shiat is never worth it. Saving $10 is not worth not seeing your family.
sigdiamond2000: FTFA:I caught the Black Friday shopping bug as a child on - wait for it - Thanksgiving. My family would dine on country ham, fried potatoes and the like, then head to the Big Lots in Cynthiana. It wasn't for the door-buster deals or anything; it was just a fun way to spend the afternoon.These people have serious, serious mental problems.
Generation_D: Nezorf: I agree with the comments on this.Black friday shiat is never worth it. Saving $10 is not worth not seeing your family.I thought it was a big family outing to go downtown and be part of the shopping superbowl.I never got it, but plenty of people do.
thomps: that guy writes really well for a dude that works at a big lots in kentucky.
xanadian: thomps: that guy writes really well for a dude that works at a big lots in kentucky.He probably has a BA PhD in liberal arts or theater English.
jfivealive: I will be too drunk and full to move from the couch anyways
CarnySaur: No backlash against this guy yet? Then again, I haven't refreshed the comments yet...
spif: A few things...1. Turkey + Ham on Thanksgiving2. This is the best holiday we have as Americans. No damn gifts, just food and laziness.3. Know too many people that are pissed off about this. I will deliver a scowl to all who are actually shopping on this day.
the8re: I have a BA in Theatre.I went back to another school to get my CCNA.I work in technology and get 11 days off (including Christmas week), 2 weeks vaca, and 2 weeks PBA.Go to school, learn the right things, get a good job.Don't and you will work on Thanksgiving.Or quit. As I have said in other threads, there are plenty of people who would be thankful to have a friggin job.
darth_badger: Just go to work and after a couple of hours call your boss to the side and tell him you farted and pooped your pants. You get to go home early and be with your family then.

FTFMMy family has always had turkey AND ham on Thanksgiving.Goose and ham for Christmas.
jayhawk88: CarnySaur: No backlash against this guy yet? Then again, I haven't refreshed the comments yet...Backlash against what? "Hey, maybe time spent with family on a holiday designed around being thankful is more important than a $40 POS tablet from India?"
Skarekrough: Its more than just "creep." It's the absurd notion that we need to be in all-out consumer mode for as long as humanly and financially possible.
Summer Glau's Love Slave: I think that shopping on Thanksgiving is a good idea. Shoppers get a leg up on the X-Mas rush, and I get some quality alone time to break into their homes and steal all their stuff. It's win win!/Last year I finished all of my 'Holiday Shopping" by Friday at 3:00 AM.//And all I had to pay for was a crowbar and some gas.
