A brand new big TV. The latest game system. The toy that your kid has been clamoring after for the last four weeks. These are the things that most people line up for, and apparently, this line had been waiting for at least ten hours, almost half a day. Did they sleep overnight, in the cold of November? Maybe, maybe. The person who headed the line, however, was there for the sweet scents of those factory-made candles.
There’s no doubt that some of those candles can smell pretty good, and if you know you’re going to buy some you might as well do it on Black Friday.
Perhaps the Strangest Black Friday Story
We're trying to figure out why this person would choose to try and pull this trick over on a Black Friday. Our best guess is that the customer figured it was the best way to get away with it since the store would be so busy. Hopefully most of the year this kind of chicanery won't fly.
On the other hand, if we got a rotisserie chicken breast and it had strawberry jam all over it, we'd probably try to return it, too. As long as we weren't the ones who had put it there.
I've Seen Enough
Black Friday means a lot of things. It means deals for the people shopping, a good influx of cash for the shops, and a lot of crazy stories. It also means a lot of shop workers who decided that they've spent enough time working the aisles.
Whether they hit the books to get an education or just decide to try out a different business, that's up to them. We have to imagine that seeing two grown women get into a fight over a pair of six-dollar jeans is going to be the breaking point for a lot of people who have been working long enough.
Back into the Hands of Babes
It was a heady time during the era of Beanie Babies. It didn't matter who you were, you got caught up in the madness, at least a little bit. We all have a box of these stuffed animals hiding in the closet, or maybe just the one that still adorns our bookshelf. This gal has a story from that time when apparently she got away from Black Friday with a new prized possession by the skin of her teeth.
There are way too many stories about adults stealing stuff from kids that we can find. C'mon, people, have a heart.
They're Mine! My Preciouses!
The mad lad from this story walked home with a major haul of one-dollar towels, so good for him. On the other hand, the description from the story sounds like there were dozens if not hundreds of towels available, and if he really got all of them, what on Earth is he going to do with all of those? Was this person desperate for soaking up liquid? Like, is his faucet and shower running at all times?
Maybe he was on the lookout for holiday presents and figured pretty much everybody could use some new towels. Well, he wasn't wrong. Towels aren't a bad gift.
