I've been out of the country 7 of the last 10 Thanksgiving weekends (and will be again this year) but I did do Black Friday in 2001...I got there before doors opened but did not camp out. Got the last one of something, and I remember it was a fab price but I forgot what it was now. But it's gotten really mad now, I was home and not doing much of anything for Thanksgiving last year but took a pass on all that, the deals were not great or worth the hassle.

Heck, I don't even go into those places on "normal" weekends, much less Christmas shopping weekends. I do have the day off, but that = sleep for me. My son works at Best Buy, and he has to report for duty at 4:00 a.m. on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Yeah, I am out there at midnight pretty much just screwing around. I only buy a handful of stuff to be honest. But I can't help how much fun it is, I don't know lol

No way in hell! I value my life too much to risk getting hurt for some deals.

Before one of my brother's made detective he used to have work the Black Friday crowds at Walmart. Hearing that they needed police there for crowd control was enough to make me want to stay away!

I never go shopping for the deals, but I do go downtown with some of my family members to go window shopping (and maybe pick up one or two things), so the younger ones can see the Santa Claus parade, and have a nice lunch at one of the posh restaurants there. It's always a fun time but there's no stress, as we're not intending on buying anything.

I work at Kohl's. I start at 4am on Black Friday and work until 12:30. Anybody who comes through my line earlier than 7 will feel my wrath.

No way in hell am I shopping on Black Friday. I used to work during those times, and know what kind of mad house it can be.

Our Black Friday is Boxing Day
I feel the from all the other retail workers.
We spend Christmas eve busting our asses to get ready for the sales. Then on Boxing Day we get in early to finish setting up and have a busy busy busy day. It means that Christmas day is spent tired from the day before and having to go to bed early to be up at an un-holy hour. Then stupid customers have the cheek to ask ,"so, looking forward to the Christmas break?"





but if I didn't have to work I'd be there shoving old ladies and trampling small children to get that $5 HD television
