 BLACK FRIDAY


In my personal opinion it is a stressor; An artificial "need"


to buy,-to spend, and to use money that a lot of folks just do not have.


The man, who was crushed to death yesterday at a Walmart, certainly did not forsee this in his future?

Yes, it is really sad.. It is complete, utter nonsense.

 I actually enjoy shopping on black Friday. It has become a nice tradition for me and my husband. We don't go crazy and line up at 3:00a.m. or anything like that. It is also a great way to save some money. The actions of a few always ruin it for others.

If you look at the article the man at Walmart was in 2008, not this year, apparently this year was relatively quiet with less problems than in the last few years.


I did my black friday shopping on line during slow time at work (yes I worked on black friday)

 I worked for a company that was hired to do the security at a shopping mall for Black FRiday a couple of years ago. It was a rough night. Everyone was pushy and fought over the craziest things. It made my night go by quickly. I won't do that for a while. Those shoppers were nuts.

 Sorry after working UC Security for walmart one year for Black Friday that was enough for me. It is pure crazy what these people do. And I agree a lot go shopping even though they really have no money to spend. And the fights and pushing and shoving that goes on just for that one item is completely stupid!! I was watching some youtube videos yesterday just to see how bad it got. You had a full grown man beating the tar out  a female for a tv!! Shopping on this day gets way to physical. I wouldn't go unless I had 3 weapons, with extra mags and ammo, plus a couple knives on my person. 


What they need to do is some kind of ticket for an item. 


You wouldn't go in there for a million bucks...A Cop does it for less...A Reserve does it for free....

Just a sign of the times! I remember working UC security for a dept store back in the mid 80"s when they had a shortage of cabbage patch dolls. it was so crazy we stood on a table and threw the couple we had into the crowd of about 100 and let them kill themselves, better them than us. All for a stupid doll that everyone had to have. Just another reason for everyone to act stupid.
