Black Friday

Postby Miel » Sat Nov 29, 2008 4:49 am

Seriously, do we need to kill someone for 50% off of something?

Black Friday is ridiculous. A store greeter got trampled to death this morning as well. People get mean and steal things from other peoples' carts. You need to go in groups to protect your items. Makes me seriously angry. Excellent way to start the Christmas season. Get a grip people.

The Surviving greeters should get hazard pay.

All retail workers should get a bonus just for showing up on black friday.

yeah that was a sick and sad story. I used to look down on all those backwards muslims and indians who routinely trample each other to death on those crazy religious pilgrimages. but for walmart? twenty times more pathetic.
In fairness, we've been building 'ground zeros' near Iraqi mosques since March 2003.

I was at Best Buy on Tuesday and saw a bunch of people lined up outside with tents, sleeping bags, tables, etc. They said they were waiting for Black Friday. And I'm thinking guys, it's Tuesday! It rained super hard that night too. Haha, suckers. I don't think that whatever savings they got was worth it. They were out there for at least three days, and one of those days was of course Thanksgiving. I'm sure they did it in shifts, but still.

Shop online, people!

It's appropriate that the biggest shopping day of the year is named something that would sound more in place attached to a plague...

Its a weird name to pick because its also the name for Good Friday.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Friday

So yah great name to pick for either commemorating the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Golgotha or getting 10% off some shoes.

I have to go in and relieve the guy on the conference call. Although I think I'm only on for resourcing tonight.

Last day. It's all over after this.

Yeah. Black Friday is a day known for manic shopping, not sitting on a conference call.

Correction: I have not cared about your job for some time. I know it has something to do with a call center which honestly is not very interesting. I sit on conference calls all day and it is not very fun.

Who the fuck even has conference calls in a call center? Pompous and stupid.
