Feel free to share any experiences.

Three or four years ago, I went with a friend to Target. Wasn't too bad of an experience, so I decided to participate in Black Friday this year. No Wal-Mart, no Target, no Best Buy, and no Mall. I went to Academy Sports. I had a friend call me at 1am to tell me people were in line when the drove buy. The store wasn't opening until 5am, so I was going to head that way at 3am. Instead, I got there at 1:30, and there were about 25 people in line. I waited in my car until more people started lining up. I froze my hiney off from 2:20am until 5am.

Two good things I got from this experience. One, Christmas shopping for dad is done. Two, I am reminded why I don't do this, so probably won't again.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I've been up for 20 1/2 hours, and I have to take my mom out for lunch for her birthday before meeting friends to watch the LSU/Arkansas game. I'm going to bed!

I took a shit, put a xbox 360 bundle in my online shopping cart and F5'd WMs site until it went through. That took a whopping 5 minutes.

I celebrated by eating pie and watching people do stupid shit on TV.

Last night was my first time going early Black Friday shopping. Went with the woman to the local Walmart at 10PM. Even in our small town it was a fucking mad house. I was one of about hundred standing around the $10 video games and at 10PM they were like fucking vultures ripping shit and just reaching for anything just to get 1 game. Funny thing is I waited and got lucky got the last game that I wanted and I didn't even have to act like madman.

The woman was standing by the $1 bath towels and she said women were literally diving into the boxes head first to get the towels.

people are just fucking crazy :shake:

Just another day in LA...

Customers hit by pepper spray at Wal-Mart describe scene of chaos

November 25, 2011 | 2:26 am 84470Matthew Lopez went to the Wal-Mart in Porter Ranch on Thursday night for the Black Friday sale but instead was caught in a pepper-spray attack by a woman who authorities said was "competitive shopping."

Lopez described a chaotic scene in the San Fernando Valley store among shoppers looking for video games soon after the sale began.

"I heard screaming and I heard yelling," said Lopez, 18. "Moments later, my throat stung. I was coughing really bad and watering up."

Lopez said customers were already in the store when a whistle signaled the start of the Black Friday sale at 10 p.m., sending shoppers hurtling in search of deeply discounted items.

Lopez said that by the time he arrived at the video games, the display had been torn down. Employees attempted to hold back the scrum of shoppers and pick up merchandise even as customers trampled the video games and DVDs strewn on the floor.

"It was absolutely crazy," he said.

Another customer said screams erupted after about 100 people waiting in line to snag Xbox gaming consoles and Wii video games got into a shoving match.

Alejandra Seminario, 24, said she was waiting in line to grab some toys at the store around 9:55 p.m. when people the next aisle over started shouting and ripping at the plastic wrap encasing gaming consoles, which was supposed to be opened at 10 p.m.

"People started screaming, pulling and pushing each other, and then the whole area filled up with pepper spray," the Sylmar resident said. "I guess what triggered it was people started pulling the plastic off the pallets and then shoving and bombarding the display of games. It started with people pushing and screaming because they were getting shoved onto the boxes."

The pepper spray wafted through the air, Seminario said, and she breathed some in and started coughing. Her face also started itching.

"I did not want to get involved. I was too scared. I just stayed in the toy aisle," she said.

By the time she and her husband, 27-year-old Cesar Seminario, got to the cash register 20 minutes later with a Wii gaming console and some Barbie dolls, the air was still smelling of pepper spray, she said.

Wal-Mart employees were taking statements near the front of the store from about eight customers who had been pepper-sprayed, Seminario said. "After we paid, we saw five that were in really bad shape," she said. "They had been sprayed in the face, it looked like, and they had swelling of the face, really extreme swelling of face, redness, coughing."

Nakeasha Contreras, 20, of North Hollywood, said she arrived at midnight and hadn't heard what happened. Even if she had, she said, she wouldn't have minded: "I don't care. I'm still getting my TV. I've never seen Wal-Mart so crazy, but I guess it could have been worse."

Joseph Poulose, who said he was hit with the spray near the DVD and video games display, criticized the store for failing to control the crowds.

"There were way too many people in a building that size. Every aisle was full," he said. Customers were stomping on photo frames and other items on the floor, said Poulose, who tried to protect his pregnant wife from the throng of shoppers inside.

"It was definitely the worst Black Friday Iíve ever experienced," he said.

I think we should use these Black Friday shopping mobs as a way to thin the herd. Tell them there's an amazing deal on stuff, let 'em line up, and when they all burst through the door they find it was actually an opening in a wall with a 500 foot drop to the ground.

Last year at Hellmarts, with agonizing back pain, I just wanted to get a jug of milk. They had all the groc iles blocked off with huge lines. So damnet Carl to hell couldn't get milk. I was hurting but still managed for a bit to get around and see what the big deal was with all these zombie shoppers. I stopped & while holding onto my empty shopping cart, couldn't get around any body. Then GOD HAVE MERCY ON MY flippin back BAMM some jack off runs right into me with his shopping cart *UUCK it hurt sumbitch. Really asshole. Not a sorry or my bad. ****ing douchbag.

Walmart got sued for buying stuff at one time and actually selling it cheaper than they paid for it....

That's why gas stations sell 2 liter cokes for 99cts , so you will buy a 4 dollar bag of chips to go with it..

I worked for Coke in the middle 80's and a customer had to pay 87 cents each for a 2 liter then to sell for 99 cts and they had to buy 1000 cases to get that price.

I try to use small businesses around my apartment complex when I can, but for Christmas presents, it just doesn't work. I do almost all of my shopping online for Christmas and smaller online retailers just charge too much for shipping. It would probably increase my spending by %50 or more.

You have a very limited view of economics.

#1) The importing of cheaper alternatives to american made products actually helps the entire nation live well above where they would if we had to buy products made here by overpriced labor.

#2) Walmart will run many small businesses out of the market, but there is so much competition from stores like Target and Kmart, that it is moronic to think there will ever be a time that they can 'charge anything'. Additionally, websites like Amazon, and dollar stores further drive down the margins.

Now, if you want to keep manufacturing in the US, then you should adopt the fair tax, and eliminate corporate income taxes.

Cuz...newsflash.... the corporations aren't actually paying taxes. Those taxes come out of the pockets of the consumer, or the people who work for the company.

I did the WalMart thing last year. Didn't really have anything I needed, but my cousin wanted to grab a few things & I decided to go with him. Bad idea.

DVD/Blu-Ray rack was completely empty at about 12:10. Kids & adults were fighting for position with each other at the video game rack and the TV and laptop area was fucking insane. So yeah, I'm not doing that again.

And I'm curious to know how many of these people are actually doing Christmas shopping and how many are just getting shit for themselves...

I'm pretty damn happy our family decided against giving any presents this year. Eliminates the need to spend the time & money freaking out over what to get anyone. Plus, that jackass cousin who only shows up with the family once per year at Christmas to get his presents before he leaves won't show up. Fuck yeah.

I heard some stories from a couple of people in line behind me that had gone to the earlier sales. From what they said, most places had organized chaos. Target only let 60 people in at a time, etc. A guy in line was reading something on his phone about a few people getting physical over people letting people cut in line at Gordman's but that's about it.

I'm gathering that black Friday shopping is really a girl thing. Although my 4 best friends who are girls replied "hell no" when I texted to ask them if they where shopping today. This tells me I've chosen my close friends well.

You have a very limited view of economics.

#1) The importing of cheaper alternatives to american made products actually helps the entire nation live well above where they would if we had to buy products made here by overpriced labor.

#2) Walmart will run many small businesses out of the market, but there is so much competition from stores like Target and Kmart, that it is moronic to think there will ever be a time that they can 'charge anything'. Additionally, websites like Amazon, and dollar stores further drive down the margins.

Now, if you want to keep manufacturing in the US, then you should adopt the fair tax, and eliminate corporate income taxes.

Cuz...newsflash.... the corporations aren't actually paying taxes. Those taxes come out of the pockets of the consumer, or the people who work for the company.


Red ones I disagree with
Importing anything is fine as long as they pay the same tariffs to get their stuff here that we do to get ours there.

Go look at a Walmart parking lot at 1pm, they don't really have any competition

**** NO! Not stepping out doors today.

Last year at Hellmarts, with agonizing back pain, I just wanted to get a jug of milk. They had all the groc iles blocked off with huge lines. So damnet Carl to hell couldn't get milk. I was hurting but still managed for a bit to get around and see what the big deal was with all these zombie shoppers. I stopped & while holding onto my empty shopping cart, couldn't get around any body. Then GOD HAVE MERCY ON MY flippin back BAMM some jack off runs right into me with his shopping cart *UUCK it hurt sumbitch. Really asshole. Not a sorry or my bad. ****ing douchbag.

Back pain sucks. Going to Hellmarts on black friday was just dumbassery on my part. Wasn't even thinking about black friday just wanted to get milk.

I read a few of your posts and your persona is really odd. Do you only follow the trendy stuff that some prof/woman vomits into your brain? Do you think some hot chick will pay attention to you in yoga? Yoga? Really? Self-centered much? Try coed volleyball.

Started about 10AM... this morning and a lot of the stores still had their big items available. For instance, Target still had the big TV, Best Buy still had their 55 inch LED for 999. The only thing we ended up buying was a few toys for my daughter. The best thing we got was a little motorized car from Academy for 39.99. Other than that, just some odds and ends with a few beers in between. Overall a very successful experience considering I started about 10 hours after everyone else...

This is the first year in almost two decades I didnt go. Its kinda sad really, not being a part of it. For me, Cabbage Patch started it. I am also a veteran of the Great Furby Wars. Tickle Me Elmo. Every game system and hot vid game...been there, done that. My kids grew up. Nothing to wait for any more. Nothing to stand in line in snow and zero degree temps any more for hours in the middle of the night (Ma law does not permit associates in the store before 12 am, so no stores open before 1 and Wally World opened at 4). No reason to commit multiple felonies in the process of scoring that gotta have it toy. My daughter has a little one of her own, but its her turn to be Santa and score that toy. I've kinda been melancholy over this since yesterday.

What a difference in two stores. The Wal-Mart we went to this year was a free for all. It sucked. People were acting horribly rude and so on. Nothing really bad but they did have officers all over the store.
Lasy year the Wal-Mart that we went to had everything designed to work in an orderly fashion. They everything routed out to where you had to be in line. There was no crowding around and then STAMPEDE. It was much better. Much safer for everyone.

The style of yoga I practice builds strength (core), improves flexibility, balance, & endurance, and has positive meditative properties. If you're too "manly" for yoga then that's your problem, not mine. I get more of a workout from a 90 minute yoga practice than I do doing cardio+weights at the gym.

They turn on registers that haven't been in use for over 9 months and then open service calls on them because most of them won't work.

Late to the party, but Black Friday was super easy this year. We only had one store that was crowded but the lines were short. Most of the stores we went to had no lines. I think that having some stores open at midnight and some still open at 4-5 am helped, though it makes for a long night.

I never shop the loss leaders that the store only has like 5 of so I don't stand out and wait in line for the stores to open. If you avoid that initial crush, it usually isn't too bad.
