Default Black Friday

well, today i decided to venture out and wait in line, so i wake up at 2, get ready and all that fun, make some coffee and sandwiches and then head out to best buy. well, this year, best buy is doing a thing where they hand out tickets for the "door buster" sales. so im standing in line for less than 5 minutes and the guy calls out the item that i want, and he hands me a ticket. now i have until 9am to pick it up. so im going back to bed.

who said black friday was hard?

Good deal.
My Best Buy experience didn't go that well last year,
glad to hear you're getting what you want.

Wow thats awesome. There was a huge line at the Best Buy near me at 2 a.m.

I just hit up Sears for a toolbox + some misc stuff, and Express for some dress shirts.

My family all want gift cards so I didn't have to pick up any sale stuff for them.

Now, I'm at work..

I have never ventured out on Black Friday nor do I intend to unless I take a rental car. I'm afraid.
