WHOHOO!! I survived another Black Friday !!

Recommended Posts

5 hours to go.

Once again as I've been doing every year now for the last 5 years, I am posting these photos of Black Friday 2012 gathered from across the U.S.A. including 1 photo from my stores:

Here's a fun video.

Notice that most of the footage was filmed inside a Wal Mart (from the blue panels in the background).

I am home!

I made it through a 21 hrs shift!

We are still alive!

None of my employees or customers got hurt, arrested, abducted, trampled at any of my stores.

I had 4 1/2 sleep and now it's back to work again.

Black Friday maybe over but the holiday shopping season is just beginning.

30 days and 15 hrs to Christmas!

2 weeks until the madness is here again and this year will be crazier than before!!

Why?

Many retailers are opening on Thanksgiving Day instead of Black Friday to get a head start on the sales.

We won't open until 4 am on Friday morning.

Also, the Playstation 4 comes out this Friday!

XBox One comes out next Friday!

Everyone will want one and inventory is limited.

If you didn't pre-order and pre-paid for one months ago, you are pretty much out of luck!

I'm home after a 22 hours shift!! Whooooooohoooooo!!

There were several incidents of violence and fights and arrests at stores across the country, most of them Wal Mart!

it seems that the quality of the clientele goes hands to hands with the violence that occurred at those Wal Marts.

Wal Mart tends to attract lower income, less educated, lower social level people to their stores on Black Friday.

We didn't have any fights or even verbal arguments at any of my stores.

Our clientele are mostly white collar educated higher socio-economical level folks.

No one tried to cut in line or physically keep another person from a merchandise or rush the front door in a disorderly manner.

Most of the incidents that occurred at Wal Mart this year were the results of people acting like animals, cutting in line and creating problems and starting fights.

There are quite a few videos on YouTube, most of them filmed at Wal Mart stores, if you are interested.

Someone told me Walmart starts sales Thursday morning at 6am. Yet online everything I have read it says 6pm Thursday.

One way or the other,this is getting beyond rediculous.

We are still closed on Wednesday and Thursday as we have been doing for years now.

I refuse to stay open on Thursday and make my employees miss out on the Holiday and time with their families.

:angry2: I just found out my schedule for Thansgiving week. I am off Sat. and Monday meaning I work thru Thanksgiving. The bad part is after I get off at 7am,I have to be back at the store at 6pm for the Black "Thursday" sale. :angry2:

I won't be able to see my folks that day unless it is for a quick breakfast and then I go straight to bed. :angry2:

You won't see me in any of them lol.

Even Fry's (I HATE THEM more than I HATE BEST BUY but not as much as I hate Wal Mart and Target) is open on Thanksgiving Thursday this year at 5 pm.

They have never open on Thanksgiving Thursday before.

The party guilty for starting this opening on Thanksgiving Thursday was Wal Mart 4 years ago!

I was at Central Market today and they already have the Christmas decorations up: wreaths over the meat and seafood glass cases, strings of lights throughout the store, giant candles and ornaments hanging from the ceilings, etc.

A big tall fully decorated and lit up tree in the entrance.

We haven't even had Thanksgiving yet.

They couldn't wait until Thanksgiving weekend was over a week from now before putting up the Christmas lights and decorations?

Get some extra sleep for me, Hardkore!

I'll do that when I log olff in a few minutes.

So I get off work and swing around to Best Buy to see what Blu-Rays they have for Black Friday, and they are not even open yet. On Black Friday and not even open at 7am?

J7, your cunning plan to move to the UK to escape the Black Friday madness won't work, because it turns out that bargain hunters here are just as nuts as bargain hunters in the US :laugh2:

I survived another 21 1/2 hours Black Friday shift.

:sleep2:

Well, I am glad we Americans are not the only ones going crazy on Black Friday!

Time for me to get out of these same clothes I have been wearing the entire time, shower and sleep.
Back to work in about 7 hours!
