    I told the story on my blog about the one time we ever hit a black Friday sale. It was years ago and people were a bit more restrained then (particularly in North Idaho.) Came to find out the CD player we bought wasn’t such a great deal in the savings department.

    I find myself cringing when I see the pictures but I do remind myself that for every horror story there were probably hundreds of stores that had no problems at all (other than people making gigantic asshats of themselves,)

    Imagine that happening on Sunday at our churches and synagogues?

    Have a lovely Sunday…

    I must say most men don’t play that game. I’m also proud of the fact that the Mrs. doesn’t either.

  3. RandyG says:

    Not meeeeeee! I will wait until the last minute like a man is supposed to.

    Angel – you will never find me at a Black Friday sale. As Grandfather liked to say “that’s for the birds”

    I’ve never done Black Friday and never will. I got a kick out of the buy that pepper sprayed everyone in line at the checkout because he didn’t want to wait. He checked out and left before the cops got there. I’ve I’d have been the cashier I wouldn’t have checked him out. I’d have pepper sprayed him before he had the chance to pepper spray me. That’s how I roll.

    Have a terrific day sweetie. Big hugs. :)

    I bought a few gifts at Target near my parents’ house mid-day Friday. It wasn’t too crowded… Most of the rest of my shopping will be done online.

  7. Eludius says:

    I was in line with a drunk guy for nearly 4 hours. That’s true entertainment.

  8. Brooke says:

    If they were GIVING it away I wouldn’t go near a retail store on the day after Thanksgiving! UGH!

  9. Debbie says:

    Whatever savings if any are not worth it to me.

    Crapasonic; You’re funny!

    Black Friday is nothing new. A bit tame really. I’ve experienced Bloomingdale’s Bargain Basement in the 1960′s and 70′s. Now that was scary. Why do you think I studied Krav Maga?

    I do not understand people wanting to wait in line at any time!!–

    Black Fridays tend to be a prelude to Blue Mondays. Works in the Stock Market and the retail market, ya buy too much and the credit disappears.

    Me yappin my opinion off agin.

    I find the 1st or 2nd Sunday of December to be the time to shop till ya drop. Most folks are at church or watching NFL football or hung over from their college football tailgate parties or are afraid to brave the newly driven snow or don’t know a good thing when the mall is empty of crazy people.

    I still can not believe they can get away with calling it “BLACK” friday, without some ridiculous Sharpton or Jesse Jackson racist rant…
    that aside,
    why don’t they call it what it really is…Gr$$n Friday, show me the money!!!!

  15. slamdunk says:

    I think it is all silly. The Mrs. does not participate, but fortunately for me does all the shopping so I don’t have to worry about it.

  16. Perri Nelson says:

    The week before for me thanks.

  17. DaBlade says:

    I like to camp, but have never set up outside a retail outlet. I’m in the “hates to shop” camp so I always wait until the last minute and buy whatever is left at whatever price they’re asking.

  18. Bunni says:

    I hope you survived the mayhem, Angel dear!
    I didn’t partake of any of that nonsense.
    Have a super fun week.

  19. bob says:

    I do all my Christmas shopping online, anyway. Today is Black Monday for online stiff. I just bought 3 ebooks for $15 each which would normally be $30 to $40 each.

    Amazon.com has some really good deals, and we got most of our presents there. Since I have an Amazon Prime membership, I do not pay shipping, either.

  20. Leticia says:

    I stayed home and will pay the extra cost of whatever. However, today is Cyber Monday. Lots of great things on sale on the net.

    Wow!!! My First Reaction to this was “Are these Photos for Real!?!” To Me, Fighting Crowds like that isn’t Worth a Million Dollars. Well, maybe 1 Million, but not a Penny Less. The Fact that People will do it for much much less is Unbelievable to me.

  22. Lista says:

    Woodsterman says that “Most men don’t play that game.”, yet there are lots of Men in the Pictures. Can’t Believe that there are People from Europe and South America that Participate. How can they Possible Save much Money after all of their Travels Costs? I Loved that Last Cartoon; Apparently not even much of an Exaggeration. I Liked RandyG’s Comment. lol. I’m with those who say they Shop at the Last Minute. I Hate Shopping, even though I’m Female.

  23. Ron Russell says:

    I got enough long lines in the military! I just don’t understand this kind of holiday madness!

  24. Teresa says:

    I was lucky this year – didn’t have to work on black friday nor did I shop. It was a blessing not having to worry about the madness.

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend Angel.

    “Black” Friday sort of has a bad connotation, doesn’t it? In any case, it’s not for me.
