Black Friday

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 27, 2010, 4:28 PM
I went down to NJ for the passed few days and returned this morning at 4 after a long 8 hour drive.

Black Friday is a pseudo-holiday that seems to be increasingly starting on Thursdays, now called 'Grey Thursdays'. I went with my Bro in Law to Toys R Us at 10pm on the Thursday, and though it was like 3°c / 39°F, like clock work cars rolled into the parking lot as if on cue, and people with buggies formed a line at least 1 km long.

SO they just let the doors open at the Toys R us and people fly in and thats it right? Not when you have a fire marshal there. So 20 people at a time went in while the line just continued to grow.

In Canada its a totally different story, we have something called Boxing day on the 26th of December which is an actual statutory holiday and things are on sale at huge discounts after X mas.

ANy body have a funny Black Friday story, plug below:

On another note:

Commission progress:

So far i am over halfway through all of them, I am looking to have it completed this week.  If I have finished yours you have been notified, I will be sending all the packages out at the same time.

It looks like i will be opening for commissions tentatively in the second week of December. I will have some new pricings and some promotions as well.


I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.


Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

Whoa, isn't that the Mormon state according to the stereotypes?

It really is, I think that around 90% of the population is mormon.

I used to work as a manager for Walmart and black Friday was the worst day of the year for me, however, sometimes it was a load of fun. Pushing, running, swearing, these were just a part of the experience. I remember one particular customer, he has gotten his hands on a computer we had at a super low price (we were losing $200 for each one we sold). He was so happy he was actually crying as he left the store.

Went to take some pictures of the 1/4 mile long line @ the local Toys R Us, hit up the Wal-Mart where people ended up hoarding movies/games like zombies and pushing people left and right (with the cops watching and laughing.)

Made off with a deluxe blu-ray, two games and a crockpot for 30USD.

This was a tiny crockpot, not a huge one. Something to make good Nachos with lol.

I'm guessing shopping with the wife eh ? :)
