Black friday shoppin’

I decided to participate in the black friday madness and get a doorbuster. Got up at at 4:30am today and as I was going out the door Barb came along cuz i asked if she wanted to the night before… she would because it was my birthday. Target’s parking lot was so full it had spillover to the family fresh lot. and Walmart where we were going had no parking spots period. I drove up the door and we switched drivers.. Barb went for McD’s coffee and I went in for a $39 portable HD.

I was there 4:55am and got to see the madness ensuing about some cheesy kodak digital cameras. As soon as the clock hit 5am the plastic came off and people transformed from normal people in a crowd to vultures picking a carcass…. all the cameras were gone within 15 seconds!!!! and it was a pallet full of them… 15 seconds!!! holy shit! thankfully my HD was not as hot of a item… I got the last one at 5:01am. Immediately I went for the cash registers and they were full already… ended up in a lane tat was taking forever. While the cashier was rebooting her cash register for 50 11th time I overheard a conversation about someone who had been in the store since midnight… that’s 5 hours ago!! holy crap.

And I thought I was a avid shopper…
