    This is my favorite time of the year. I get to sit in the comfort of my own home and I get tons of entertainment because of Black Friday chaos.

    I've only just started looking at Kotakus article:

    http://kotaku.com/the-chaos-and-carnage-of-black-friday-2013-1473472104


    So people, post them reports/videos of people trying to get a good Brack Friday Bunduru!

    Same, sadly :'(

    I watched those Kotaku vids, pretty sad really. They are litterally fighting, I really can't see that happening in Belgium tbh. Although we don't have these super massive crazy sales, but it wouldn't be as aggressive as the ones I see in America.

    It's amazing how crazy people get, considering Black Friday sales have sucked more and more every year.

    What's really shocking is that all these people don't know that they get what they want in seconds online with none of that mess. Only black friday shopping I did was ordering a few games off Gamestop (objective was Xenoblade the rest are a bonus) though te site was laggy as hell unlike everywhere else online

    Reports? Pfft. Let me sum it up in one word: "Hell"

    Scheduled to work from 7:30 PM to 11:45 PM Thursday night. Wasn't able to leave until 2 AM. Reported back at 9 AM for a nine hour shift.

    On the other hand, I've really learned to sympathize with the Bolsheviks.

    I've been at work since 7:00 AM so I missed out. Oh well, online shopping is much better.
    EDIT: Watch the black lady in the second video become an internet meme tomorrow.

    I hate Black Friday. People are such dicks when you try to help them find a item, instead they give you a disgusted look.

    That Wal-Mart is the one in my hometown. I avoided that shit for that two specific reasons. One, it's a small town, and every Black Friday, people always head there first. Two, Wal-Mart is a fucking madhouse on BF. >.>

    Between insane and insecure
    My store scheduled no one for cashiers nor CSM's. So what should have an easy day became a complete mess of lines waiting for CSM overrides because they didn't put the sales in the system.
    I had to stand behind the register for 30 minutes waiting for a CSM to override something, several times.
    Words of advice, never work for WalFart.

    Yeah, with the advent of the internet, no one should be buying from large chains in-store on Black Friday. If it's a small business having sales, support them, sure, but otherwise just buy shit online. I got a Core i5/HD4000 15.6" touch notebook for $329, and a Killzone: Mercenary download for under $20, all from the comfort of my home.

    Our Wal-Mart's black friday sales started Thursday, I guess to help with all the madness. Myself stuck to the bluray\dvd deals this year.

    :lol:

    But for reals I never go out on black friday, I always just stick to Cyber Monday deals since A). I don't have to waste gas. B). I won't get killed and C). It always seems the Cyber Monday deals outweigh the Black Friday ones (at least, for things I myself would be interested in buying)

    Right behind you
    Got Rayman Legends and Lego Marvel from Amazon, otherwise I just got a bunch of cheap blurays at Walmart. Was actually fairly tame.
