Re: Eff Black Friday

I worked retail for all of 8 months back in the day at CompUSA. Yeah it blows big time, I feel for you retail folks. So many people are just rude and nasty, even more so on Black Friday or right after Christmas when everyone returns shit.

Thanks. I was supposed to be 1pm to 9pm but my store manager is beyond sick so I have to be the acting manager on duty all day to cover his shift.

Re: Eff Black Friday

Quake and Rave- I feel for you. I think I'd go postal if I had to deal with working retail tomorrow. Quake- you still in Gainesville, FL? The GameStop at the Oaks Mall?

My wife is in Windermere, FL with her family this week, and she and her mom are hitting the malls in Orlando tomorrow. They're freaking crazy. But I made sure I gave the wife some $$ and a list. Hey, if she's gonna brave Black Friday, I'm at least gonna cash in on some of the deals.

Re: Eff Black Friday

I was out at my local shopping epicenter here in Woodbridge just a couple hours ago to help a friend out with his shopping and shit's absolutely crazy. It's like laws go out the window when you have this many people together, I mean I saw people making horrendous driving decisions like it will cost them half an hour if they don't miss a turn or some shit when they can drive half a block and make the next turn. People are ****in stupid. Especially those lined up in tents outside Best Buy. Whatever deal they are waiting for they can probably get online for the same price and they won't have to wait outside 7 hours before the store opens.

I stopped by Walmart on the way to work,got there about 7:30. I was in and out in 5 minutes with the 69.95 bluray with wifi player. It wasn't even as bad as a normal Saturday . The electronics section is where the most people were gathered. I don't know if it's the economy or it had already cleared out from 5 am

As far as it goes here, most of the cops are doing crowd control at Best-Buy and Apple Blossom Mall. Things get bad here and the cops are on hand as well as some reservists to keep things cool at the mall...

This is why: Black friday death match at walmart This is insane Video

i'm guessing you are talking about the potomac mills area. i was pissed i had to go to costco today, the one that is at potomac mills. i thought it would be hell, the parking lot was a friggin joke but costco itself wasn't bad. you will never find me at a target or other bix box store on black friday ffffffffffffffffffffff that

as far as the hh gregg bashing goes i don't get it, i mean their sign says hhgregg appliances and electronics and that's pretty much what it is. yeah they don't have all the dvd's, video games, or cd's but i think thats better. they focus on what you are there for a big ass tv or a sweet ass surround sound. i bought my new tv from the one here in woodbridge and i had a pretty good experience there. they were actually helpful and nice and in no way did they sucker me into buying the biggest and baddest tv they had there, i did that on my own!(with my wife's permission)

Yeah I'm talkin about Potomac Mills. That place is a hellhole. I mean the traffic situation is so packed in there with all the big box stores nearby that it's just kinda ridiculous.

You know that access road that goes all the way around P.Mills? I was in the right hand lane, and some d-bag was in the left hand lane, and that person realized she needed to make a right hand turn, but instead of doing the logical thing and slowing down and letting me pass, she cut me off and made a right hand turn from the left hand lane. And that stupidity seems to spread everywhere, there was a line out front of the Gamestop in the mall that stretched halfway down the corridor, and there were fights breaking out about spots in the line that the police had to break up. People are just stupid, and it's never more evident than on Black Friday.

Re: Eff Black Friday

Bump.

Anybody find any good deals yesterday? I actually didn't hit up any of the stores at midnight last night, but I got a couple good deals online. Ordered Battlefield 3 online from EA.com for 31 bucks (shipping included) last night, and I'm gonna give that to my bro for x-mas this year, plus I got a 7 inch tablet from buy.com for 80 bucks that I'm gonna give to my sister and her bf for x-mas, and then I got Assassins Creed Revelations off BestBuy.com for 35 bucks, which is gonna be for me lol. I went out to Petsmart and Target last night, long after the big crowds had died down, and they had some okay deals but nothing really worthwhile.
