Good god that last video.. if you're in that desperate need of towels maybe it's time to look for a 2nd job.
 
2012-11-23 03:11:19 PM  
Maybe the rest of the world hates us for that right now, but give them time and they'll be doing it themselves.
 
2012-11-23 03:30:54 PM  
They hate us because we cram all of our crazy people into Wal-Mart the day after Thanksgiving? But the Running of the Fools is an American tradition!

I don't know about the rest of the world, but that's part of the reason why I hate my own stupid country.

I don't understand what that r-word means. I assume that's fancy talk for upgrading to sewing machine 2.0.

Criticism is unpatriotic. Only knbber2 can be a real American.

I envy the rest of the world.

Apparently they have no stupid people.
 
2012-11-23 07:31:10 PM  
Instead of just having water running to the ceiling sprinklers, maybe they should have tanks of pepper spray hooked up to them as well?

I went to Walmart today, in the afternoon. I made was on a mission. I went in, went straight to the department where the item was, grabbed it and went to the self-checkout. Bam, boom, done.

Ironically, I think Wal-Mart is pretty well stocked with shotguns.

Stupid people do stupid things in every country. Are our stupid things more stupid than than their stupid things? meh. who cares

so a bunch of cretins act like cretins. whatever

Like a food truck in Ethiopia would look differently?

If you know, they could play with the food in multiplayer.

2012-11-23 08:42:42 PM  
me suspects there are many penny wise poound foolish people in these vids

its harder to learn to dial down your wants and live within your limits
 
2012-11-23 08:44:25 PM  
also, i dont think this is why other people hate americans. other people live like this, except for essentials. this is why americans hate americans

make this a red-blue divide if you must
 
2012-11-23 08:49:02 PM  
That's not the only reason they hate subby. But certainly one of the reasons.

This. I left the States almost a decade ago because I was so tired of my country. I later learned it was more a matter of me being young and dumb. After traveling a lot and living abroad, I've realized life in the US is awesome. Sure we have our downsides but it really is a great place to live.

I was out yesterday in that madness, but it was a bit more restrained at our WalMart. Everybody was fairly civilized, though some palettes probably emptied within a minute or two.

That said, I picked up the two doorbusters I went to get with no issues. They weren't "high demand" items, but I did want to get a decent price on them.

What gets me are the people who spent all week camped out at Best Buy, even missing Thanksgiving dinner with their families, just to save $200~300 on a big screen TV - that they'll be able to order online this weekend, anyway.
 
2012-11-23 09:55:38 PM  
These people are crazy.

Why would you subject yourself to such a hive of scum and villainy?
 
2012-11-23 09:57:26 PM  
"Hate" is a bit too strong of a word. I'd go with "Laugh at", and "Heap scorn on".

Why are redditors the most butthurt people on the internet? Why?

are black friday sales only good in the middle of the night or whenever they start till the sun comes up? Or is this an all day thing?

oi_piss_me_off: are black friday sales only good in the middle of the night or whenever they start till the sun comes up? Or is this an all day thing?


Lately, they've been starting at midnight. The amount in stock at the sale price rarely lasts very long. Hence the rush.

The sad thing is, they are fighting over Walmart branded TracFones. I have a StraightTalk phone. It got me through a couple years, but good hell is it a piece of crap. Ugly. Heavy. No features. Practically ZERO apps, and the ones they do have are like $9.99 for a freaking game. Let's talk battery life - it will work fine in standby mode. Lasts for about 2 days. Make a 45 minute phone call or send 2-3 picture messages? Forget it. Your battery is drained. Want to browse the web? Good luck. You might get about 10 minutes of surfing before the battery just gives out.

I paid about $70.00 for mine, but I've seen them at Family Dollar in the discount bin for $20.00 or less.

If these people were fighting over iPhones or Droids, I could say, "At least there's a dollar value associated with them that would warrant a rush." StraightTalk phones are like the Special Eds of the cell phone world. Fighting over them is like fighting over a cigarette butt in the ashtray of your local 7-11.

First one is my lovely, backwoods home town. Glad I don't actually know anyone in the crowd.

/no, I wasn't there.
 
2012-11-23 10:22:02 PM  
It's just a matter of time before someone brings a loaded automatic weapon and goes apeshiat on a Black Friday.
 
2012-11-23 10:24:17 PM  
It reminds me of those botanical gardens and zoos where you can throw pellets into the koi pond,

I was waiting for a land whale on Jazzie or a Hoverround to pummel through the crowd.

that makes sense. I wonder who decided to start it at midnight though.
 
2012-11-23 10:35:23 PM  
This is why we can't have nice things.

/or at least why the people that were in the back or showed up an hour after they were sold out can't have them

Unless you're asked to pay slightly higher taxes, that is.

Well, duh. What the hell good is an unloaded automatic weapon?

/'cause, you know. you can buy an automatic weapon just about anywhere.
//probably right at the walmart.

Say it loud and say it proud. I am SO glad i wasn't born in some third world shiathole. I thank God I happened to be born in the land of milk and honey where we have so much we throw things away. It is astonishing how many ignorant Americans there are who are clueless as to how horrible so many people have it in life. I don't deserve this sweet gift I've been given but I am very thankful it's what I got. i wish our government would stop sending willing assassins around the world to kill people but there is nothing I can do about that.

They had police tape up in the food section of Walmart yesterday. That makes sense.
