sigdiamond2000: I'm typing this from outside of a Best Buy in Ashtabula, Ohio, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies. I've been camped out here for four days now, singing songs and breaking bread with my fellow Black Friday Rangers. There's a sense of comraderie and fellowship on this sidewalk that I don't expect you cynics to understand.

I'm 6th in line, so I'm pretty much gauranteed a 35" Vizio 750p flat screen for $159. That's a great price for a great product and if you don;t think it's worth it, you need to get over yourselves.


LOL.  I'd love to have had regular updates showing the deterioration of the situation.

"Day 5:  Food is becoming scarce and moral is at an all time low.  Some are claiming there's talk of cannibalism, but I hope these are just rumors and speculation brought on by hunger, fatigue, cold and lack of sleep.  One fellow shopper has restorted to drinking his own urine.  The customers at the adjoining Barnes & Noble eye us with derision and contempt."

Day 6: All hope is almost lost as the blizzard has moved in and buried most of the waiting crowd.  Please Lord forgive me but I cut open the recently deceased soccer mom from the suburbs and used what was left of her body heat to make it through the night.  She was number 3 in line so I am up to 4 as also number 2 wandered off during the whiteout and is presumed dead.  Through the blinding snow and frost on the Best Buy window I can still see my prize.  I covet the TV and it will soon be mine...all mine...I may even purchase the extended warranty but that could be the hypothermia taking.  I would weep but my tears would be frozen

The next thing you'll tell me is that the local furniture store's 54th annual going-out-of-business sale with guaranteed 50-percent-off list prices isn't legit.

If it weren't for Thanksgiving, the Coby company (makers of electronic dogsh*t) would have went out of business decades ago.

Day 7: The white rabbit stopped by to talk to me again. He says he will hold my place in line so I can go get coffee from the forest badger, but I don't believe him. He wishes to own my tv. But I will not allow this to pass. I am so cold now. So very cold. I don't know if I am awake any more. I want to sleep but the chocolate cows are keeping me awake with their singing. I think I am getting better. I don't shiver any more. I think I will lay down in the snow and rest....just a little while....Tell Sally I love her...

So how much do you folks make an hour that you are willing to wait around for 2 or 3 days to save 200 bucks on a tv or whatever?

I don't think I've ever purchased anything from Kohl's without the 30% off coupon AND Kohl's cash. I know full well it's a marketing gimmick but I'll be damned if I don't leave that place without some sort of self-accomplishment.
