Black Friday

Black Friday was crazy. We all know that, but really. It seems to make people revert to a barbaric stage where they feast on the corpse of deals. I didn't let it get to me... too much at least. I hardly partook in the EXTREME DEALS (tm) other than a few really cheap DVDs. Nearly everything I bought was at full price. However, that doesn't mean I didn't see some crazy sh*t.

For example, I was at Target and once we got in, I was shocked. The store had only been open for 20 minutes, and there was a line that circled the whole store. Let me put this in perspective, we spent a total of 30 to 40 minutes in Best Buy, we spent 2 hours in the line at Target. I thought I was back in Orlando waiting in line to get on Space Mountain or something.

Some other gems include:

  • College kids shopping at Best Buy (Like they can afford anything there).
  • Parents using kids as weapons (My mom made me hit someone for a West Wing box set).
  • People obsessing over Guitar Hero (Everyone had a copy of that game).
  • Bad drivers (Me included).

All in all, pretty positive experience. Awesome day, great deals!
