He is planning on getting a 40" LCD TV for $180. He also claims to have called out of work to do this early shopper camp out.
Where do I begin?
He has a job, so he has the means to afford such a treat for himself if he budgeted correctly. Here's a good deal I found on a 40" LCD, took me 15
seconds to find -
Best Buy 40" LCD
It's listing for $290. Skipping what may potentially be his last Thanksgiving with his family (because of Dec. 21, 2012) to save $110 on a TV he'll
probably destroy next time he plays Bowling for the Wii.
The last time I was in Best Buy, I couldn't find a toothbrush for less than $100. Nice tooth brush #1 Nice tooth brush #2 Nice tooth brush #3
I refuse to buy anything from such a morbidly over priced store, especially one that offers GD toothbrushes that cost more than my last car did off
Whether it's waiting in long lines for an over priced pair of the new Jordans with a 9mm tucked away just in case things get rough, to the stampedes
of overweight Americans when the Walmart doors open on Black Friday.... the USA never ceases to disappoint me on an entertainment scale. I'm looking
forward to all the Black Friday mob videos on YT this year.
I'm not a believer in Dec. 21, 2012 being "our demise", we're already the Walking Dead.

Yep. saw on the news Monday morning people were already lining up. Can't see calling into work for four days ($300 plus a $100 vacation day, $400
total) to save $100 on a tv after being miserable all those days.
Just not worth it! What is wrong with these people?

And if they weren't eager to spend their hard earned money on electronics deals, we'd all be freaking out that this is the first Black Friday where
sales didn't meet expectations and that it's Obama's fault that people are too poor to camp out this year
It's started here in Henderson, NV as well today. I feel sorry for all those buffoons that feel compelled to slave themselves to these gadgets.
I'll be at home enjoying the holiday festivies laughing at all these fools fighting for these deals.
I look at things like this and it really lets me know how low we have sunk (these people anyway). Think about it, camping out for 10 or 20 hours to
save $110, what's that like $5 to $10 and any discomfort that goes with it. It;s not like camping or survival training where you are actually
teaching yourself new skills. This is the out of control worship of things.
People can be so stupid, yes. Better yet, if millions of Americans would avoid shopping on Black Friday altogether, that would certain scare the
# out of the retailers and you'd see prices drop much more and quicker as well.
