Black Friday Mayhem
 
No one posted any Black Friday stories? I know some of you guys went out there to get cheap gifts for your wife/husband/kids/yourself.

Any crazy stories?

Apparently a Walmart worker in New York got trampled to death and no one even stopped to see if he was okay.

I also heard about a story at a Toys R Us in Cali where 2 women, both of whom were accompanied by men (boyfriends i assume) got into an argument over a toy and both of the guys pulled out guns and shot each other.

I remember last year I heard about a woman at Kohl's in the area who was pregnant, her water broke and she wouldn't even get out of line.

I had to work, I work at Target. I went in at 10 in the morning and it wasn't that bad, it looked pretty similar to a busy Saturday, the only difference was that we had like 3 times the business in electronics. I was put on restocking team and most of the stuff I pulled was for toys and electronics, but I didn't get too much pulled because about 6 of the 8 hours I worked went to helping people out lol. We had 8 people in electronics and there was never a moment we could spare, we were either getting key items restocked or helping guests.

But honestly it wasn't as crazy as last year when I worked at Toys-R-Us. That day was so busy I worked from midnight to noon and I didn't even get the chance to clock out for my lunch break.

I sort of liked working Black Friday because while it was hectic, at least people were buying stuff so you felt like you were doing something productive. But I felt like the day after Xmas was all about doing exchanges or returns. It was much more annoying, and I felt like the customers had a worse attitude.

This year I made the mistake of going to Home Depot on Black Friday to get a fake Christmas tree (which has only Redskins stuff on it). I was only there for a few minutes, but I came dangerously close to losing my mind and ramming people with my cart.
Luckily I was only in the checkout line for about 2 minutes.

Are there really that many good deals?????

I didn't see one thing that made me even want to go out at 1 pm to buy stuff never mind stand in line at 1 am.

I hope they find every one of those people and put them in jail. Is a couple hundred dollars really worth that to you?

I'd pay $100 extra just so I can sleep late and not wait in line...

I'm with Daseal, I hope they prosecute everyone involved.

I always say the same thing about Black Friday, I'd rather pay more than deal with that cluster F.
