Fark that noise.

As always, I'm all about the online Friday/Monday deals. I've already staked out the ones who ship to Canada for cheap.

Yep, already got my Amazon wishlist built up, waiting to see what deals there are on Friday before I hit order.

My standing rule is I do NOT go out on Black Friday unless it's something I can get at a gas station or liquor store. Neither of which have stampeding crowds.

I hope there's a for-real bloodbath and maybe American will finally give this crap up.

Yeah, because if there's one thing America will not tolerate, it's bloodshed of the innocent.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to work on my sign for the "Rally for Gun Rights" that's being held in Newtown Ct on the anniversary of the day that those 26 selfish children tried to block my freedoms.

I've already got my Holiday Liquor stocked, and on Friday I'm hosting a "Thanksgiving Hang-Over" party and tree trimming with the family. Most of us can't stand crowds, and we're all broke anyway.

/except my Dad, who is being dragged shopping by his wife

If you're planning on being at Wal-Mart at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day, just kill yourself.
 
2013-11-27 10:20:42 AM
On Friday, I'll be tearing up the desert landscape and polluting the air either in the Jeep or sandrail.....fark that shopping bullshiat!
 
2013-11-27 10:21:00 AM
Last year I bought tires, alignment, and an oil change on Black Friday.  Got windshield wipers tossed in too.

No such need this year, so no go except maybe to the grocery store.
 
2013-11-27 10:21:01 AM
Good luck to you crazies out there. You won't find me anywhere near that insanity.

And I protest the stupidity of opening stores on Thanksgiving night. Greedy bastards.

Saw a commercial yesterday for Big Lots, which will be open at 7am on Friday. Then I tried to think of something sadder than the kind of person who would go to Big Lots at 7am on the day after Thanksgiving.
 
2013-11-27 10:21:51 AM
How many people will be trampled to death by assholes trying to save five dollars off some plastic piece of shiat toy their kids will tire of 10 minutes later?
 
2013-11-27 10:23:07 AM
For all those going out to shop on Thanksgiving, a pox upon your houses. It's an ABOMINATION, I say!

ABOMINATION!

Yeah, I know. But if someone's desperate to gun down a bunch of people and has to choose between kindergartners and a line of people participating in this fiasco, well, I don't advocate it. Exactly. But you know what to do.
 
2013-11-27 10:24:44 AM
Hot chicks don't camp out, they get some chump to do it for them.

The guy that has to leave his family's thanksgiving celebration to get to Big Lots by midnight to make sure it's stocked up for the people who will rush in at 7am.

That's sadder.

This. Unless you desperately need a food ingredient to cook, go fark off and die. You're the primary reason people can't enjoy Thanksgiving with their families.
 
2013-11-27 10:25:01 AM
FYI:

I don't know how it is in your areas but by 1pm on Friday the stores are all empty

It actually makes for a nice quiet shopping experience

I hit target bestbuy and lowes last year all after 1 pm and there was hardly anyone in the store
 
2013-11-27 10:25:34 AM
I think it's bizarre and kind of macabre that retailers continue to trumpet their "Doorbuster Deals" after shoppers in recent years have literally been trampled to death by mobs busting down the doors.  Do they really want to encourage that sort of thing?

As usual, I'm staying the hell away from the stores this weekend.  However, some of the online deals look very appealing.

Nope. No excuse. You forgot the cranberry sauce? Tough. No one likes it anyway.
 You forgot the mushrooms for the stuffing? Go without.

This whole idea that EVERYTHING must be available to you the second you have a slight desire for it is annoying.
 
2013-11-27 10:27:04 AM
Some people consider that opening a store on Thanksgiving is crass and annoying to the people who work at said stores, and only stretches out the period people buy stuff without increasing overall sales, but it's well-known that Canadian stores sell twice as much Christmas stuff because their Thanksgiving is in October.

That being the case, the solution is clear: We must move Thanksgiving to December 26th, giving retailers a full year to sell their holiday wares.

Conversely, it may be that American stores are run by morons.

Just form a melon line and start flinging merchandise out the front door.

I used to love working at the bookstore on Black Friday. It was incredibly busy, but it's not like people were trampling one another to get at literature.

/Maybe Harry Potter books.
//Probably says something about society

Considering that tomorrow is the latest that Thanksgiving can possibly be, it's possible that this thread isn't early enough.

You obviously don't live with the bloated, spoiled, octogenarian cow I live with occasionally. She had two of her daughters out (one on foot) looking for a mince pie without meat because she PREFERS mincemeat pie over pumpkin. This is after one daughter bought her a pumpkin pie.

I told her to stop complaining and fark off. She insisted since complaining was a bad habit she wasn't complaining. I used my superior debating skills and told her to fark off again.

It's going to be beer, smoked turkey (which she doesn't prefer but since I'm cooking the damn bird it's going to be smoked and it's going to be delicious) and football for me. I'll let the three of them get drunk and scream at each other.

I think I should up my meds to catatonic level. You know, instead of trying to resolve an unresolvable situation graciously.

Stopped by Best Buy to get an overpriced phone charger last night, and there were already people lined up outside to be first in the door for whatever sale is planned.

My 8 year old son, unfamiliar with the whole black Friday/Thursday phenomenon, said to the first guy, "You know the store is OPEN right?  You can just GO IN. You don't need to wait in line."

He then told the guy at the security desk inside the door that there were a bunch of stupid people outside waiting to get in a store that is ALREADY OPEN !!!

I considered explaining the whole thing to him, but the entertainment was way too good to mess up.
 
2013-11-27 10:36:41 AM
FARK stores that are open on Thanksgiving.  You won't be getting one CENT of my money.  Don't do black Friday.

Exercise a modicum of self-control and wait until January.  Deals are even better then.

A lot of people are up in arms about stores opening on Thanksgiving night and how it denies workers time with their families and how shoppers will prioritize bargain shopping over holiday goodness.

I say we should turn this into an opportunity. Stores like Wal Mart and Target should stay open all day on Thanksgiving, but they should serve delicious turkey meals for all their customers. Think about it. Instead of being holes up in our homes eating alone with our family, we can be out in Wal Mart, the center of our economic and social lives, enjoying a meal together as a community. It's what the Pilgrims would have wanted.

Walmart is supposedly serving hot food of some kind to employees who are working Thanksgiving, but "encouraging" employees to bring dishes to share with each other. Which (while admittedly a first-world problem) is very sad.

No, they're "encouraging" employees to donate money to help other employees be able to afford a thanksgiving dinner.

Because they don't pay them enough to survive on

Eff this noise.  My siblings and I used to do the rush more as humor and getting a chance to hang out together since we're scattered all over the East Coast and don't see each other often.  The last few years have been terrible - we'll get up to go out at 5 or 6AM, but not 3 or 4 or the night before.

I'm going to try to avoid the Big Box B&M stores this year and buy online or in small stores.  Success so far, though I've only bought a few things.
