Some people are idiots....
Electronic devices is one thing, a Black Friday deal can mean much for some, but i have seen a video of people fighting over paper towels. I mean seriously, how much does that shit cost at most?!
My sister works at Walmart. She said on Black Friday the associates are instructed to just put the pallets of product out there and step back. They don't even unwrap the product. The crowds tear off the plastic and whatever else is in their way to get to the product. They clear pallets like swarms of locusts.
She also said they've been told not to interfere if two customers are fighting. Just let them have it out. They can call security if they're that concerned, but most associates don't. They're too busy trying not to get hurt themselves.
I don't get it. Fighting over a TV? Essentially fighting over what, $100 discount? People are fucking dense.
the major networks are releasing some "must see" tv shows these days.
In India we also have a kind of festival ( Dhanteras ) but no one fights because there is a lot of stock and people do have time to choose what model of item they want.
There are a lot of members of BHW, and also a lot of retards at BHW. By the laws of averages, there must be a fair few BHW members who have been involved in a Black Friday fight. I would like to hear the story off one of these retards, why they battled to the death over a Tesco TV. (Walmart for Americans).
Worse than Black Friday fights are 30 second long video intros, 30 second long video outros, Top 10 lists on a Top 5 Youtube channel, videos that literally are the clips muted with voiceover explanations and then the clips themselves again, and annoying annotations everywhere.
Back on track.
The majority of these are at Wal-Mart. I was awake at 3:30am Friday. Not because of shopping, but because that's when I wake up lately. Drove past that general area... it was mayhem. Traffic out the ass, people sprinting into the store after parking, people parking on the grass, etc.
I did my weekly Wal-Mart grocery shopping this morning at 5am. It was nice and quiet, maybe 20 patrons total in the entire store, and zero lines at the check out. Funny thing is, the deals that were going on Friday were still going on Sunday morning. People just went and got themselves in a damn hurry.
About five years ago, I decided to try my luck at getting a new camera on Black Friday at Wal-Mart. I was almost run down by people with shopping carts as soon as I walked in, and it looked like the floor of Wall Street, but with more obesity, sweat, heavy breathing, and stretchy clothing. Turned around and noped right out of there. Went home, went on Amazon, and got the same camera for $20 cheaper online.
Black Friday Dawns as 'Bloody Friday' as Shootings Interrupt Shoppers in Three States
People all over the country left their Thanksgiving tables prepared for long lines and busy stores. But in several cities, as shopping carried on into the night, shoppers also had to navigate around evidence markers and crime scene tape.
Shootings in Nevada, New Jersey, and Tennessee left two dead and two others wounded overnight as Black Friday shopping began in earnest.
In Reno, Nevada, a squabble over a parking space turned deadly. After an alleged dispute in a Walmart parking lot, a 33-year-old man was shot and killed. Police say that they have recovered the firearm, but have not made any arrests.
Another shooting disrupted shoppers around 11:15 pm at the Wolfchase Mall in Memphis, Tennessee. Witnesses claimed that, after firing "at least 40 shots" in the parking lot near the food court, the shooter got into a red Mustang and drove away.
One person was hospitalized with gunshot wounds, and police have confirmed that three people are in custody following the incident.
In the UK most places where deserted as UK shoppers stayed at home and shopped on their mobiles, lot less hassle
Very interesting video.They are not idiots ,i think it may be their desperate situation.
That's just hillarious. People fight like little kids over a TV which is maybe $100 cheaper than normal. You leave the shopping center with 2 broken arms, but hey, atleast you got a 25% discount!
Some times those who cant afford to buy ,they can grab only on black friday.That is the main reason for fight.Everyone has wishes.
So stupid i just used the internet and ordered just pass 12pm midnight done.
I got same deal just three days to get it there via post.
I got dad a "60 lcd £400 not bad was £1000
I went out on Black Friday once about 7 years ago. Everyone was so calm and walked around the store. Nobody forced their way through the door, and everyone was helping each other find what they were looking for.
I actually went there to see people fighting, but I wasn't too disappointed since the people I met that night were nice.
That was 7 years ago maybe try know lol joker dont think even ipad was around
Like to see someone take a "60 tv home 7 years ago your need a jcb 7 mates and a truck lol
I agree, it might look stupid at first, but the reality is that the majority of these people isn't so privileged so they need to wait in line and it might be devastating to realize they can't get a certain item.. Thanks for sharing The Scarlet Pimp!
The majority of them have the ability to just shop online without waiting in line.
