Anyone else getting up early to go shopping? We do it every year and this year won't be any different. I know some people don't want to deal with the crowds or getting up early, but I have to admit that I enjoy the thrill of the hunt as much as I enjoy saving money on the stuff we get.

Hopefully I don't get my man-card pulled for talking this much about shopping, but I do love to save money.

Oh hell no! Used to but stopped a few years ago after a few years of working retail that day. Taking off work tomorrow but still going in because I'm taking my cousin sightseeing (she's visiting from Florida and goes back Saturday).

Hell no, I did it last year and will never do it again.

I'd rather take a liver shot from Bas than go Black Friday shopping again.

I can't really save money if I have no money.

Quite frankly I'm thinking we may need to hold a town meeting to discuss the status of grappler's manbership.

In all serious I've actually been called to black friday shopping disputes while on duty before. People are so rediculously stupid. Three years ago I had to seperate two grown adults who were about to come to blows over a walmart laptop- in front of their kids no less. Holiday cheer at it's finest. I can't understand why anyone would voluntarily put up with all of that BS.

Well, I guess that is a resounding NO.

Well, to be honest, I have it down to a science...It's 6:45 and I'm done shopping already. I went to 3 different stores, got everything I wanted, and saved a couple hundred bucks in the process. If you plan ahead it's a pretty painless experience.

Several of the online sales have already started, but this coming Monday is notorious for having online sales.

Whats black friday?


The biggest shopping day of the year. It marks the "official" start of the holiday shopping season/rush and usually is also the day that retailers go "in the black" for the year-meaning they finally start turning profits for the year.

Those ladies go Nuts on black friday. I went to walmart last night and some lady stole on of the new merchandise lists that says where the big sales items are going to be.

Nope. Didnt go. My girlfriend wanted me to go with her, I refused. She walked in about an hour ago and said that she had saw two fights. Both involved 40+ year old women. Maybe I should have went after all.

Pretty sick how ravenous people get for some gifts.

Hopefully Walmart will be sued in some type of negligance suit, as they obviously didn't take the correct precautions in opening the store. Someone should have been doing crowd control to ensure people entered the store in an orderly fashion; not like 200 dogs chasing the same stick.

Sad story.
