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.
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.
thomps: that guy writes really well for a dude that works at a big lots in kentucky.
Nezorf: I agree with the comments on this.Black friday shiat is never worth it. Saving $10 is not worth not seeing your family.
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.
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.
jfivealive: 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.What are you gonna do when he asks to see the goods? Quit bein a sissy and just shiat your pants in historic native american fashion.

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.Too much effort.Just go to the mall & clean out the overstuffed cars. Hit a couple of SUVs and you're done.I wanna be you when I grow up./I can be ur disciple?
Englebert Slaptyback: bhcompybecause you sold half a thousand cases of Bud Light 30packs.Why didn't you just say 500?Are you one of those people who say "half a decade" instead of "five years"?
pgh9fan: What's the big deal about working on Thanksgiving? I work at a bowling alley and I'm going to work. Couldn't care less. It's what I do. If I wasn't working I would be at the mall shopping. So what?I'll get paid to work Thursday.
xanadian: This is even better:[i249.photobucket.com image 639x429]
thecpt: Me and my friends have been saying exactly this all week. I'm hoping the American consumer has found his or her limit for what they're willing to spend money on.It's sad. Stay home, eat turkey, and watch some football
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.
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.
