Where is this money coming from for people to go shopping? Where are the jobs? I need a job that pays at least 45k minimum to survive….I wish I could go shopping to purchase the basic needs. To those of you who are able to shop, have fun….for me…

Checkout line at Wal-mart in Griffin is always packed, especially on Black Friday. I have found that they often honor Black Friday deals the next day without near the wait. Of course that is if they still have items in stock.

Bass pro shops in Duluth. Lines are really long and sort of unorganized. Registers do not show sale prices so clerks are having to look at prices in the sales ad. I just waited close to an hour and 1/2 to check out.

@DW: Here’s the actual product:

Toys R Us at 10:00pm on Thanksgiving off Cobb Parkway was crazy. I got there at 10pm and left at 3am and most of that time was standing in line to checkout. I waited over two hours to check-out but it was worth the wait.

@DW: Boooooo! My guess is that they had doorbuster prices between certain times (6 a.m.-9 a.m.?) and have increased the price now. =(

I never have and never will understand why people rather camp out to save $10 on a toy that will be obsolete in 4 months then to sleep in and spend time with their families. These same deals are ONLINE people! No wasting time, gas and rage from parking lots and stupid register lines. Its a no brainer. This shows really how stupid the american public is. They think they are getting some great deal by being the first one in at 4am…yea on a TV that has 60Hz when then going standard is 240. Enjoy your outdated material junk that you “saved” so much money on.

To Buckeye and Misa….I did not create the national debt however I did pay my share from income taxes during the year 2009 and since the gvt so graciously took more than the required amount, i received a refund to which i smartly put in an christmas account all year to earn interest and thats how I am going shopping because i’ve earned it…however it will not be today…dont like crowds…


November 26th, 2010

THAT STINKS! :( Thanks anyways and PLEASE keep an eye out for any good TV deals you happen to come across! Happy belated Turkey Day to you too

@ Lauren not really it was like there was a mad rush to get in at 10pm and it was busy at first but by the time I left the parking lot was a lot smaller compared to when I arrived. Toyr R Us was smart though they had some item on sales starting at 10pm and then other toy at 5am so I sure they had to two different groups of people going into the store. I was very pleased with the amount of things I got for my kids for $100.

To make things worse, the picture on the homepage of AJC.COM is 900 people with the same stupid TV i wanted!!

To the naysayers: You commentary, no matter how trite, has yet to change the hearts and minds of the masses. I understand that you believe you are each, individually, smarter than the rest. I know your mentality because when I was a young dumb boy, I thought the same. The fact is if some people (the vast majority) want to go out shopping today and take part in the near-sport of bargain-hunting, well, then enjoy! Our American freedom allows us to choose to shop, even if that hurts your little feelings. And shop WITH families, (Really?). And Buckeye… I just laugh at you. Seems every time one person does one thing, there is someone like you that argues what ELSE could have been done. Buckeye, you armchair quarterback, I sure hope your charity offerings to the Feds is sky-high. If it is not, then shut up. You naysayers, the biggest fallacy is to think you are an elite group of “thinkers”. You are simply a large counterculture that quite simply does not get our current style of living. Stop crying for the past to become the present (G. Beck), and stop raining on others parades. None of it has EVER worked for you.


Happily clicking away on Amazon then hitting the stores to see whats left WITH family.

Best buy sucks

@Really…you don’t need this nonsense today to show how stupid the American people are. The election of 2008 already showed that by voting me an my fascist cronies into power. I just love American Idol!
