Not that I saw. I didn't want to stay there long. Just look and get out
ITT we explain society to Arlon.
This is what tv news crews are for - so you don't HAVE to go out and see some hellhole for yourself unless you're a masochist and actually enjoy that sort of thing.
I refuse to take part in any Black Friday shenanigans. It's not worth the hassle.
But you're there being a rubbernecking busybody. Even if you're not buying anything and even if you're only one individual, you're still being part of the problem.
As for what I think of Black Friday...
I agree. I'm not planning on going to something like that again.
I got all the seasons of Mad Men on Bluray for 10 bucks a pop! Yay!
I got a ton of clothes for more than half off!
I did get out this morning early, 7 to about 10. Hit a B&N, grocery shopping, quite frankly the traffic was nothing. I am hearing on the news that Walmart is doing well so far today and the protests are in full swing.
Been seeing some footage of Walmart protests on CNBC. It's been mostly East Coast stores though.
Walmart walkout first of many
I always wondered about this. It's an unofficial union. I can't wait to see how it plays out.
No walkouts at my store today.
Then perhaps, YOU should be The One!
Yeah, I thought you were boycotting, Tunick? What are you doing?
Right now? Smoking a cigar (it's lunch time). I've been half assing it, though... that should count for something.
it would if you didn't do that every day.
This was my easiest black friday ever. I came in at 230pm and spent 2 hours in the office. I open on Sunday and I'm off on Monday, so not only did I not set up for the sale, I also don't have to take it down.
I was in electronics for my shift. It was dead from about 5 am (when I came in) until 8:30. Then, the typical insanity came back.
Not doing it again next year. No, sir. Three Black Fridays is enough for me.
It's official....my store made 30% less than this day last year. That some depressing $#!t.
Maybe because people weary of the insanity that is Black Friday? If anything, I take that as a sign of hope for our culture.
The news said when I was watching on Thanksgiving (and ignoring my family 'cause that's what I do) that 147 million shoppers (or somewhere around there) were expected to turn up this weekend, compared to 220 million last year. They cited the "fiscal cliff" and economic uncertainty, but I don't know if we psychotic apes are really smart enough to be swayed by such nuance. Either number is still a rather large amount of people.
Don't get your hopes up, Billy.
