I have only attended one Black Friday. Got a tv for 2O dollars, which was before flat screens and plasma was invented lol Hey, I thought I was cool to have my own tv when I was like 12 lol But ever since I heard people bringing guns to places and getting trampled and dying, I dont think getting something half off is worth someones life.
Black Friday the nickname of the day in 1929 when the US Stock Market crashed, which signaled the beginning of the Great Depression. So the Friday after thanksgiving is always called "Black Friday" in remembrance of that day, and stores usually give their lowest prices of the year on that ONE day. Hence why it creates such madness.
I don't know why "Jewban" said that but that sounded awfully sarcastic, so im going to take the risk and presume it was and reply as follows: Not everyone is American and cares about it's holidays you ignorant bitch. Other wise, if it wasn't sarcastic, no comment.
um, no, it's called black friday because that's often the first day of the year that retailers start to turn a profit for the year, as in out of the red (meaning that they've so far spent more money than they have earned) and into the black (meaning that they have now earned more money than they have spent). Anyway, on a side note, I first read this as "Today, it's Black Friday. I got sucker-punched by some woman over a ten dollar girdle" and was slightly confused for a moment.
Hard to feel sorry for you for going out today. This is exactly why I never go out shopping today, let the morons think they are getting a deal when they usually are not
I bet you could have gotten the same deals online as well, and not been outside waiting in line, dealing with inconsiderate idiots Incidentally, I bought a 56 inch LCD TV from a store that was offering them today, and bought it online and didn't even have to pay for delivery, and I didn't have to wait outside in the cold at all and woke up at my usual time of 6am and didn't purchase it until 8am, yet I got a great black friday deal without leaving my nice warm house.
I worked Black Friday for 3 years in a clothing store. Never have I been more sure I wanted to hit someone in the face. It's ridiculous the way people act. As my old manager said: "If you're in a shitty mood, just stay home". That way we don't have to deal with stupid questions and nasty attitudes. And to be quite honest, people really don't save that much. My store had better prices in the few days leading up to Black Friday than we did on that day. We'd slightly raise the price on the most popular items, but lower prices on secondary items. That way, it was too good of a deal to pass up, and yet they still want the more popular item. So you end up spending more. Just sayin...
Griddle me this op: Didnt you know this could hap-pan? YDI. ^ Well that was a shitty punchline
