    4 am? LOL now that is funny.... any true Black Friday hunter knows you start standin in line at MIDNIGHT. If you there by 4 am, you will not get what you went for.

    Not a personal fan of Black Friday shoppin myself but I have been there adn done that.... total insanity.

    I never have been shopping on black friday that I can remember. I had my first experience today on the job. It wasn't the shoppers that was the royal pain, try the managers. :eek:oooh: :embarassed: :confused2: :angry:

    I think that about sums it up perfectly.

    I never understood the hype or wanting to subject oneself to all that craziness.

    I'll just order my gifts online in the comfort of my home. No rude people, no lines.

    Well I can tell you from experience that it sure wasn't at the time. :dribble: I guess the years just take the edge away. You know how we all talk about the "Good ole days" Most were a pain in the bottom. ((:)smile2:)))

    There's two lines I'm going to wait in;
    1. Boat Ramp, If I don't drive a few extra miles to avoid it.
    2. Bathroom, If there's not a tree available.

    I try to wait to the last minute, when it's less crowded......:eek:oooh:

    Well I love it . Me and the son in law go one way the wife and daughter go another . My other daughter and the daughter in laws hit the mall and my 4 boys hit the walmarts . We usually drop 4 to 5 thousand every year . Up at 3 a.m. in line till 5 am and its off to the races . We go all out around here for christmas a few hours in line to make the wife and grandkids happy is not to much to ask . We made out like fat cats today . I will have to get some pictures posted of the livingroom tomorrow of the beginning of the tree disapering ....lol
