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.

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.

smerfnablin: Oh! Honorable mention to the woman who pepper sprayed shoppers last year?

Let's see if she created a new tactic to clear crowds for this year


I'm going all-in on a guy bringing a spiked-ball-and-chain flail and swinging it around. Bonus points if he buries the ball in the front door tempered glass.

And then like, eight guys come running behind him carrying a giant door ram, and they just obliterate the front doors of the Wal-Mart, and then the roaring hordes charge in behind them. That's what Black Friday could really use.

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.

Fubini: I just got back from Sears an hour ago. Got there at 7:30, they opened at 8:00. There were probably ~50 people waiting when they opened. Walked over to the appliances section, saved about $1200 off retail for a washer/dryer set (though you're not supposed to buy them for full retail price anyway). I dunno what the "true" savings were versus a normal sale price. I walked out of the store about 8:20. Got back home at 8:30.

I did talk to all three of the salespeople I interacted with, none of them wanted to be there, which made me sad.

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.

I think that when we finally get the recipe for Soylent Green just right that it passes taste tests we could use store front sales such as this for collection sites

I wonder how many of the people camping out can do so because they're on welfare.  I bet it's 90+% of them.

tommyl66: Sin_City_Superhero: picturescrazy: This is what should be open on Thanksgiving: police, fire, rescue, and maybe gas stations.

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.

Snarfangel: JerseyTim: 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.


the store i work at is having the people at the store deli make chicken strips and other assorted hot case items. the people at the deli are thrilled by this. last time they actually went all out and hired a catering company lot of people got food poisoning .

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?

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.


AMEN, sister.  Fark you dipsh*ts who pee your pants just because something isn't instantly available or more likely, that you lack the simple brain capacity it requires to plan ONE day ahead.

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.

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.
