I went to the one on Hall and Schoenherr a couple of years ago (the one Black Friday I ever participated in due to a deal on a 2TB external drive) and saw people carry a huge flatsceen like it was big game killed during a 19th century safari.

Fecking ludicrous.

Well I was in and out of the store in ten minutes, no queuing or anything like that, I don't really think there's any deal that would be worth doing that.

I've never had pizza from Papa John's now I come to think about it. Have you ever had it from J. Baldwin's, they're on 18 and Garfield you should check them out. :)

Incidentally would Schoenherr and Clinton River be an area you'd consider living?

I used to look foward to Little Ceasar's in the cafeteria when I was in school.  It was much better than the pizza they normally served.

So . . . I went to Walmart last night as planned and it appears they used bait and switch to get customers in the doors. According to one of the employees manning the movie/video game area, there never were any copies of Brave on blu-ray. So I just waited in line for almost 2 hours for nothing. Well, I was determined it not be for nothing, so I looked around and found a couple movies my wife wanted for $12 combined. Oh, and it turns out my discount doesn't work on Black Friday deals, so I'm glad I ordered the damn player online because it does work on their website (though I had to find out how through Yahoo answers). Bastards.

While we're talking Black Friday horror, please keep my wife in your thoughts, as she currently is working her shift at a sporting goods store. This time last year I had a horrible morning working for GameStop, but her ordeal is sure to be worse, as it's for a much bigger store.

Bait and switch is illegal.  If you know the salesperson who told you that (or can remember them and see them again), get them to sign something to the effect that they never had any copies and you can pressure them into letting you have a copy for that price when they DO get some.  [All it takes is a threat to report them to your state's Attorney General and they usually fall in line.  I've done it before.]

I heard this morning that my store manager almost got trampled last night at some point. Wish I could've seen that (she sucks).

I just hate dealing with these Lightning Deals.

"The Lightning deal said if I bought the Xbox now, and then bought 1 game at full price, a 2nd game at 3/4 price, and a 3rd game at 5/8th price, then I would get a $10 promo on the order, and another $20 promo issued for a future order if I sacrificed a goat to Ba'al in the light of a full moon, and a $5 mp3 credit issued if I pushed the button on a black box presented by a disfigured man. My question is: if a train leaves Cincinnati at 8pm central time, what time would my package arrive in Pittsburgh?"  :grr:

I went to a local mall at midnight since my sister wanted to go. We waited in line about an hour before they opened. And when they did, the line broke out into a big clusterfuck pile of people. My sister was crammed in Victoria's Secret with a shitload of teenage girls buying half off yoga pants or some such shit. I stopped by Best Buy at 2 am though (which had died down quite a bit) and bought some Blu-Rays (the only things I really wanted to get). The amount of garbage outside the store was amazing. They actually had a porta potty outside the store too. :o

I went to Wal-Mart later this morning (around 10 am) and their movie section looked like a tornado hit it. And the movies on sale were crammed in a small aisle. What a great place to put it. ::) I also stopped by JCPenny and got slippers. 8)

It sounds like I'm complaining, but I had fun overall. Black Friday is getting worse every year though.
