Last year was really bad too, here are a couple incidents listed in one article.

Pepper spraying Black Friday shopper was fighting for cheap Xbox, police say

The U.S. holiday shopping season got off to an ugly start when a shopper pepper-sprayed other bargain hunters and robbers shot at shoppers to steal their Black Friday purchases, police said on Friday.

Up to 20 people were injured after a woman used pepper spray in California to get an edge on competitors. In a second incident, off-duty officers in North Carolina used pepper spray to subdue rowdy shoppers waiting for consumer electronics.

In San Leandro, California, a man was in critical but stable condition after being shot by robbers in a parking lot outside a Walmart at 1:50 a.m., Sergeant Mike Sobek said.

It's a corporate joke... Black Friday. Thus named because many businesses do their lions share of business in the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas eve. Thus that is the period when they're "in the black' - as opposed to lean months when they are operating "in the red".

It's also a way to prove that Pavlov was right and the only thing needed to support his theories are some cheap TV's and a few newspaper circulars.

Laptops under $200? Wow, no wonder people go crazy!
I don't relish the thought of the experience. Even my mom is delaying shopping trips until a few days from now, I believe.

You know, I get a little annoyed when news stories never say what happens to the customers who assault each other. Are they arrested? Escorted out without their holy grail?

Good thread, Heff. I am with you. I can't imagine anything I'd rather NOT do than to assemble with a horde of greedy, pushy shoppers to buy cheap Chinese goods. On a side note, have you noticed how hard it's getting these days to buy products that are not made in China?

Watchitburn, I feel your pain--literally. The cure = turkey leftovers with gravy and a beer.

LOL, don't thank me, thank Heff for starting this thread. I'm guessing that fellow members will have some stories to tell later as the day proceeds, if they are willing to admit their participation


I hear Slayer and Beez are out shopping for some new avatars...

Never went shopping on black friday.

In fact, I don't "go shopping."

I buy things, but the whole thing feels yuck to me. Malls always felt like sheep pens or something. Never liked the idea of being herded through paths that funnel you past boxes filled with things... Something about seeing all those humans acting in that matter embarrasses me personally...

I've always had a chip on my shoulder for society though, so don't take my word for it.


I'm just thankful for my girlfriend and my kitty, and the beer I have left over from last night.

Any person with decent standards would react disdainfully at these people's actions. Are you a former nightmare shopper?

Judging by the way some of them acted in black friday's friday
We see what we see and i see what i saw.....Sub humans..
quite a few...

It makes me us feel better to know that we are not among them...

Humans willing to give thier souls away for a pair of nike airs it seems..
Willing to knock over a pregnant woman or kid in the process..

Just my non euro two pounds worth point ...

Star and flag.

I'm with you Heff. I'd actually rather be at work since it'll be slow all day, and I can save that time off for when I need it.

We've really become a society that glorifies in satisfying the ego.

If someone can't afford a 50" TV unless they wait in line for 8 hours in the cold, maybe they need to re-think their priorities in life.


I know more people that make less than I do with nicer TV's than me.

How in the hell do these people fit a 50"+ TV into their ramshakle trailers anyway? How does it not cause sunburns from being so bright and close?

Don't worry guys, he is just upset that he camped out all night for a cheap flat screen but due to his spot in line they were sold out by the time he got in.

I would be pissed too.

All of this TV talk is invoking my envy. I have a non HD 27" TV ( analog - the kind that are a foot and a half thick ) - and the irony here...

Bought it at Wal Mart on Black Friday about 8 years ago.

But these people can with what they say as they do not participate in knocking kids and
pregnant women over just so they can get cheap computer..

This gives them right to judge the sub - human behaviour we see in the videos posted
by the very members who have and will not act in this manner...

Yeah, I don't subscribe to the madness known as "Black Friday" I've seen the lines, and how people act. It's quite sad that people will practically kill each other over poorly made chinese goods. Besides, these deals at "Black Friday" aren't really deals at all, they knock off 20 - 30$ on most high end items, and honestly that is not much of a savings.


You can find better deals sometimes on days that aren't considered "Black Friday" But I commend those who decided to not play into the consumer mindset of "BUY BUY BUY BUY"

A rather predictable rant, again. Naturally, those who "don't like" Black Friday will not participate. It's easy to just stay home, is it not? There's nothing compelling you to participate, is there? Don't go; problem solved.

So that begs the question: Why are you ranting? You must not want OTHER people to participate, the people who chose to participate. You can blame retailers for hyping it up, of course. How dare they offer items for sale? Or you can blame "the sheeple" for responding to those nefarious ads announcing the sales. Lord knows they probably have a subliminal message causing shoppers to become hypnotized and offer their credit cards up for scalping. It's a conspiracy, don't you know!

Of course, there's the "I'm so compassionate!" angle. Those poor employees being forced to work. How dare they be compelled to work on a holiday. How dare they be forced to work nights and weekends, too! In retail, no less. Don't these poor people deserve a 9-5 job? It's capitalism gone awry, I say. (Hint: I suspect they are grateful for the work!) Don't you just love it when other people are so compassionate that they want to protect you from yourself? Sometimes they are SO compassionate about what they believe that they'll pass laws to make sure you are protected from yourself. I mean, you might find yourself in an unruly crowd and you might get trampled to death, therefore it's all Wal-Mart's fault and there ought to be a law against it.

Of course, you really ought to spread your compassion around. What about all those football players, many of them teenagers on high school teams who are ripped from the bosom of their families and compelled to play a Turkey Day game--getting wet in the rain in the process, coming home soaked and smelly? And all those spectators, too! There ought to be a law against that, too. After all, somebody (you know it is inevitable) is going to break an arm in that football game. We've got to find someone who is liable and sue them.

After tackling evil Black Friday you'll have to tackle Christmas in general, a pagan holiday co-opted by merchants. No mangers in the schools. It might offend someone. You have to say "Happy Holidays." NEVER say "Merry Christmas." It might offend someone and ought to be illegal. After that--Valentine's Day. It discriminates against people who have no "partner" (careful here; we don't want to offend some transgendered person who is "in transition" and doeesn't know what sex he/she is at the moment.)

Then we take on Mother's Day! It's just a retail invention that benefits Hallmark, Inc. (Psst: Corporate monopolistic giant) and Flowers-to-go (Psst: Corporate giant wannabe).

or

You can just let people enjoy the FREEDOM to do what they want to do without you interfering with THEIR lives.

What a concept!

FREEDOM to pursue happiness without the interference of dimwits who just hate it when you're enjoying yourself.

Hahaha You know what, its about what they are offering and what is their target group. I´ll tell you something there was this kind of shock sale couple of weeks ago in our nearest city, when they offered BEEF in the stores in a price what it takes to grow and how much they receive when selling before it goes to the delivery chain. This was because farmers wanted to show how much they actually get from meat they are selling. So 80% sale of BEEF you can count bacon in it too lol.. you would be the first guy in line
