So I got to experience my first Black Friday today. Even when I worked at Wal-Mart, somehow I managed to escape the craziness of the major shopping day after Thanksgiving.
I left work about 11:15 and headed home to gather some much needed supplies. I grabbed a hat, some gloves, and even a second jacket. I dropped my brother off at a friend’s and headed out to pick up . We headed out to Best Buy to partake in their awesome sales. Amazingly, there were people camped out there since around 7:30 PM, and we got there at midnight… for a store that would open at 5AM!
So after 4 hours in the freezing cold, we finally got in. Dave got shafted and despite our attempt to line up 4 hours before opening, they ran out of Laptop Computers by the time they got to us in line. I was more fortunate. I managed to get everything I needed, and then some.
I got a 512 MB CompactFlash card for my camera, two 1 GB thumb drives, a keyboard and a 24′ Television for my new home.
