I woke up this morning realizing I needed two laundry baskets for my pending relocation.
I live directly behind a WalMart. Cyclone and mole44 can attest this fact. I've bought laundry baskets at this WalMart before, so apparently it escaped my realm of logic that WalMart might have some Black Friday festivities. I entered Sam's playhouse, and the madness ensued.
To get to where the laundry baskets are in this particular WalMart, you need to go past the electronics area/section. In the process of passing by the electronics, I watched two grown men, and by grown I mean 40s+, throw hands over what looked to be $1 DVDs. These two were seriously going at it! Security was called, and they still couldn't break up these two for maybe 3-4 mins. Then the local Johnny Law showed up, handcuffed both of them, and escorted them towards the front of the store. At this point, I resumed my laundry basket mission.
Upon finding said objective, I made my way to the front, paid for my bobbles, and then watched as both men were being put into police cruisers.
Ah, Black Friday.
I remember last year when I was managing a Lids in Cherry Hill NJ and worked from 530 A to Midnight and we sold $24K worth of freaking hats and hat accessories. No stories to tell of that day, just a damn merry go round of customers all freakin day since we were running a BOGO on 5950s. I've never seen more fitted hats fly off the shelves then that day.
Good luck to all that made the commercial pilgrimage today. I hope you didn't end up in jail like the WalMart duo!
