If ya can't run with the big dogs, stay home on Black Friday.

"I don't understand why people do these things."

If she was younger and a built a bit more solidly, she'd be the one doing the pushing and shoving. The fact that she was at the store at 7:30am on Black Friday shows that she's the type to push her way to a baragin.

It's still not as bad as the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

People began lining up at BrandsMarts two entrances before 4 a.m. Friday, hoping to snag some of the doorbuster specials or hundreds of other discounted items. "We came in about 4:45, and there were already lines," said Cosmo Adamo, the general manager.

By 6 a.m., when the store opened, hundreds of people waited in long lines snaking around the building

Astonishing.

73 and still not astute enough to avoid going shopping when every person with a piece of plastic still not maxxed out is massing at the gates of the shopping malls.

Simple, these people have low iqs and are animals. I have 3 pups that are a lot smarter than them and I might add, more polite.

Black Friday shopping is a young woman's game.

Reminds me of my rock concert days. Poor security and planning, in my estimation. When you entice people with something they want at a certain time and then don't deliver, they're going to be pissed, and if you don't have the security personnel to handle all the people you pissed off, then...

So much for the celebration of Christ's birth. I wonder if the three king's aides stepped on folks to purchase the gold, frankincense and myrhh?

----People who go out on Black friday, knowing (unless you have lived under a rock) that there will be mobs pushing and shoving, get no sympathy. If you can't handle it, stay at home.Did she think because she was older that they would part the crowd like the Red Sea , and let her walk through?
