The time of the year again where I try my hardest not to look at the deals at the expense of my wallet, which its frugality makes me wince.

Looking for some headphones this year and that's it.

My worst experience probably that dumb Sears thing with a 50" 1080p I think was for 299, I could be wrong. Then there was that Walmart fiasco on getting a ticket to pick up your items in their loading dock.

several years ago was the first midnight black friday specials at the super walmart. Then the regular sales kicked in at five AM or so.

so after a day of football beer wine food and festivities with the family we decided to go at midnight. Needless to say I was borderline hammered.

came home for a few margaritas in an hour or two asleep then got up for a beer and back at it at 5 a_m.

That's what I recommend. eat, drink, and be merry. I still have two dollar d_v_d's I have never opened. Hahaha

I'm loving that Black Friday thread Jon. I can relate to that stuff. I worked at Toys "R" Us back in highschool for about 2 1/2 years. People are nuts on Black Friday. Worst time of the year to be a lowly employee at a retail outlet of any kind. Here's a funny story though.

I was working the "R" Zone on Black Friday. The "R" Zone is just TRU jargon for the video games section. There's two registers in the R Zone where I worked at. We had a line that wrapped around from the registers all around the perimeter of the R Zone and on into the back of the store. I don't even remember what the big seller was that year but the line of people was huge. It's a cashier's worst nightmare. Funny part was that I happened to be having one of my top days as far as having gas goes. Basically I had been shitting my pants ever since I had crawled out of bed at 4am to make it to work. So I felt this huge one come on and I decided I was going to light up this crowd of particularly obnoxious Black Friday customers as quietly as I could release it.

It was perfect, I managed to pass it with nobody hearing it and it smelled like a decaying dead body was right there in front of us. Best part was that the customers were standing there breathing it in getting the full effects of it with nowhere to go because they didn't want to get out of line. They were all making faces and some people were openly accusing other customers of having passed the gas. It was SO damned hard to keep a straight face. When I got my break I laughed hysterically. It was both funny, and a sweet measure of revenge for all the stupidity we had to put up with that day.

Some people would probably say I'm a sadist.... to them I'd say go work retail on Black Friday and you'll understand.

A more serious story would be another occasion when I was working during the holidays. I don't think it was Black Friday but I can't remember. Just remember that it was the holidays and it was busy as hell. I was working out on the floor so basically I was one of the guys that wanders around asking you if you need help finding anything, that kind of thing. I asked this younger woman who was by herself if she needed helped and she told me she was looking for a Terrain Twister. A Terrain Twister was a hot holiday item at the time and they were on sale and constantly sold out. Going above and beyond I told her that there were none out on the shelf but that I'd look in the system for her to see if we had any in the back of the store.

I got on the computer with her standing with me and much to my surprise we had an entire box in the back. I immediately went back to the warehouse cracked open a box and retrieved one for her. She was as happy as could be and was very thankful. She left, and shortly thereafter I get a call from my manager Todd who grills me over our little portable radios telling me that I shouldn't spend so much time with one customer and that I needed to be moving on from customer to customer instead of doing what I did. So I called him out right back over the radio. Told him flat out that that's not how I operate and that I wasn't about to change how I do my job. Todd then gets mad and orders me into the computer room so he can chew my ass in private. I still wasn't having any of his bullshit. He tried ripping into me for questioning his authority on the radio and I told him that I not only helped that customer and made her day, I also got one of our most popular products in our ad out onto the shelves so it could sell rather than sit in the damned warehouse. Lastly I told him that I would rather have one customer come back to the store 1,000 times than have a 1,000 individual customers only come in once. My logic is that if you make one person so happy that they'll keep coming back then you've got a customer for life versus random numbers walking in the door. That person becomes a continuous source of money versus random people coming in who might only come in one time.

Todd still refused to listen to logic. Nothing like getting punished for doing things the way that they should be done. It pissed me off particularly because Todd was always a level headed guy that I felt I could talk to, and then out of the blue he is calling me out on the radio for doing the right thing for everyone to hear. I did come to find out though through channels that he was a wife beating drunkard with a suspended license and my most recent query in google of his name turned up a mugshot from a county jail in Utah. Karma biatch.

I've personally never gone shopping on Black Friday, it's never appealed to me. I have gone to a large mall just outside of Chicago a few days before Christmas and it was packed, but the people were well behaved, expect for the clothes strewn about all over the department stores.
Amazing stories. I got sucked into that thread for about 2 hours!
