Default Black Friday Melee at Circuit City

Anyone else go and wait in line this morning? It was insane out there today. NUTS. When the door finally opened in was almost impossible to move in the store.

Most people were waiting in line for an advertised cheap laptop for like $200 and they only had 15 of them. People were not please, tempers were running high and cops were called in. They were closeby because they were already patrolling the parking lot anyway, anticipating trouble.

Worth the trips for the deals but wow, what a chaotic mess.

Got bored this morning @ the hotel we were in(visiting others for Turkey day), and walked to the Best Buy across the street in Sterling, VA. It was packed, and apparently I missed a fistfight between two soccer moms in the appliance section. One got carted away by the cops.

I haven't gone out in years. It's amazing how people act when the doors open at the stores. And waiting for hours in those lines? Crazy. Maybe they could donate their time instead to a worth cause? Hey, how 'bout we start a new craze, go watch these folks, you know, sort of like wrestling on TV. I laugh when I see on the news how these folks act, at least most of them. Best of American civility? No way. Thank goodness some of the better deals, sometimes, are available online (like the Sportster Replay for $50, no rebate )

We went out this morning at around 9:00, Best Buy was crowded and busy and it took over an hour to get waited on and checked out but we saved about $350 on the TV and taxes (tax free days Friday and Sat here in SC) buying it now.

I am not one to go out and shop, but $350 is $350.

I worked at a Target a couple years ago and it was insane. I had to be there by 5am, but there was already a line of people. I worked in the clothing section and all of a sudden there were dvd players and microwaves stacked in the women's coats (doorbusters?) We all had to carry around the walkie talkies (they weren't all usually given out) and dealt with flustered soccer moms asking where stuff was. Culture shock to me because before working at Tarjeh, I've never stepped foot outside my home on Black Friday.
I had to work this black friday too....at a bank. We opened the drive-thru at 6am. We didn't receive a customer until 7:45...um...totally worth losing the 2 hours of extra sleep over.

I never go out on Black Friday. I went out once a few years ago. Was at Best Buy and I thought there was going to be a fist fight a few times. People were rude, stores overcrowded. I vowed I would never do it again. I hate shopping anyway. I buy gifts and stuff online these days.

The Best Buy and Circuit City near me have people lining up the Wednesday before Black Friday in order to be first in line and getthe best deal. These people are nuts.

So they skipped out on Thanksgiving with their family to get a deal on a tv? I know some of us have seriously dysfunctional families, but is it worth skipping a holiday over?

It happens every year. A few weeks ago when the games came out, a group were sitting outside BB over night and were robbed of the money.

My classmate with ADD was plotting to get his paintball guns and shoot people in the front of the line to get into the first spot. Of course, he didn't do it.
