People get psychotic during the holidays. People setting up tents in front of stores as early as Monday to save a few dollars that they could have easily made up by actually working those days. People sitting in airports for hours to visit relatives that they don't even like because "tradition" tells them that they should (assuming the flight isn't canceled). Rampant materialism during Christmas which is the polar oppose of what Christ supposedly tried to teach. People are farking nuts.

The constant stories about the official start of Annual Gift Season get more and more tiresome every year. This year they finally broke Thanksgiving's back, as "hey did you hear that so & so is open on Thanksgiving this year!" is the only freaking thing anyone's talking about. Just moments ago, at 9:50 PM, Wal-mart aired an ad to remind me that Black Friday isn't over yet. It's just so over the top and relentless now, there's no restraint at all.

And the way the media plays into it is just so shameless. In the NYC area every single local TV newscast is leading with shopping stories. Every local news outlet has reporters at local retail chains, interviewing weirdos that have been standing around in the cold for a day and a half because Best Buy has really good deals on TV's. "Ha ha ha, we sure do love our shopping here in the US of A, don't we?"...it's sickening.

The next step will be to eliminate the whole family dinner/turkey thing from the holiday and instead encourage Americans to make it a big "day out" where you "shop til you drop" then stagger on over to Chili's to stuff your fat face instead of spending all day in the kitchen. Then they're going to come after Xmas hard with the ultimate goal of turning it into "Gift Card Spree Day". I give Xmas five years tops before it's broken too.

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 !!!

spman: Also, did you REALLY see people in tents outside of Best buy "a few days ago"? Sounds like hyperbole to me, I've been Black Friday shopping for years, and the earliest I've ever seen people outside a store is about noon on Thanksgiving.


I have seen them in two different cities as early as Tuesday evening. The first tent in line in one place had a GENERATOR running. We're in the north, and it's snowing outside, and these idiots are using a generator to power their iPad and an electric heater, and SLEEPING IN A BEST BUY PARKING LOT FOR THREE DAYS, and I have to wonder just how much they think they're going to save?

I mean, how much fuel are they using in that generator to power their camp-out in freezing weather? Subtract that, and the value of their time, and they could probably have made what they're going to save by working three eight-hour shifts in a McDonald's and then quitting the job Thursday night.

There'd be a lot more dignity in that, too.

Counterpoint: that is unfortunate, but the guy stocking the shelves is at least serving a useful purpose. He has a job and is willing to do it, possibly because he might get fired if he didn't. His activity is much less optional than the activity of the shoppers (if that makes any sense).

I don't really get all the hate on Black Friday. Last few years I've gone it's been busy, but always organized and never violent. Yeah, it sucks that stores are opening on Thanksgiving, but lot of people in non essential job functions work on Holidays, suck it up. I also love the "standing in line all night to save $5 on a computer comments". For one thing, if you're standing in line any longer than an hour, you're an idiot, but the Black Friday sales are almost never "save $5 on a computer", it's usually more like "Save $200 on a slightly underpowered, but still functional computer", which is great for stingy people like myself.

Damn welfare queens with their tents and lawn chairs and sleeping bags. I heard from a reliable source that immigrants are having anchor babies in Black Friday lines so they can get secret special discounts for new mothers that Obama signed as an executive order without Congresses approval!

LIQUOR STORES

Buy your liquor today, it's not that difficult.

Hogwash! Alcohol needs to be available on ALL holidays that involve hanging out with the family. Also holidays that involve fireworks, veterans, trees, diaper-clad baby archers, rabbits that lay eggs, and Kwanzaa.


If you don't have enough alcohol in your house to dull the pain of family, you're doing it wrong.

The only way I'll see Black Friday is if someone takes me out of the house at gunpoint to go shopping.  And even then I'd have to think it over.

Mid_mo_mad_man: Isn't it early for a Black Friday thread?


Why, it's almost as if greening this early was some sort of commentary on the shopping madness itself.

gilgigamesh: Yanks_RSJ: If you're planning on being at Wal-Mart at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day, just kill yourself.

Just imagine what a better world would result if we released mustard gas in front of every WalMart right then.


So we'd be stuck with a world full of people who think it's OK to use chemical weapons on people because we think they're dumb?  Tempting...tempting...

The Black Friday threads should totally link to the Black Friday Death Count site. Best place to get updates, probably.

Whod'a thunk that Toys-R-Us is actually the site of more deaths than Wal-Mart?

Trainspotr: 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.


Just thinking about a store like Big Lots makes me depressed.

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.

If the right photojournalist gets there at about 6:48, that's a Pulitzer waiting to happen.

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.

what_now: jayphat: 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.

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.


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.

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

Benevolent Misanthrope: 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.
