Black Friday

Who thought up this hellish shopping holiday anyways? I hate shopping, you all know this but I was willing to go out on this blasphemy of days to get a 40-inch 1080p LCD TV for under $300.00. Oh ya, the price was phenomenal. Obviously others thought the same thing and of course Target didn’t have but maybe 15-20 of each item so if you weren’t right in the front of the line you were screwed. And can you guess where I was? Ya, I got screwed.

On the way in a bunch of teenagers decided they wanted to cut in after we had been standing in line for over an hour. This woman behind me stopped them and said you have to go to the end of the line and snagged the little Target security guard who got them out of line. Why must people be like that? I thought this woman was gonna throw down with them at one point. I woke up at 2 AM and knew I should have just gotten up and went down there. Maybe I would have had a shot at getting one of them. I mean I even saw this little old lady dragging a 46-inch along behind her because she did not have a cart yet. Insane!

So now I search online to see if I can find anything even remotely close to that price in a 40-inch and probably will go ahead and order my Barnes & Nobles Nook Color now since I didn’t get the TV and wait for that to ship since you cannot buy them in the stores yet.

Never, ever again will I do that. N E V E R

    Aw, that’s awful! Oh well. I got burned by Black Friday a few years ago. No thanks, the rat race is not for me. I’d rather stay home and pay extra the “regular” way! That, or do without. Sorry your experience was so bad.
