    Well, this was my first black friday, and I gotta say it wasn't as bad as I thought. I had about as much room as you'd have at a concert (NONE), but the ppl around me were nice. The best part was that since I got a camera I had to pay for it at the counter, so I didn't have to wait in the long lines!!! The part that sucks is that I bought the same camera online just in case I didn't make it to the store, planning to cancel the order if I got the in store sale. Now I can't cancel it, and it looks like I might have to wait 2 weeks before I get it and can take it back!!! I sure hope not, I'm hoping my loophole will be the fact that I messed up one letter of my last name when I placed the order, so hopefully they can cancel it. It's 7am, I've been up since 11am, I'm so tired!!!

    Thanks to everyone who gave me black friday advice!!! I've been victorious!!!

    I have NEVER gone shopping on black Friday as I am usually way up north (no stores for 60 miles) with my Mom. But this year, I went up and picked my mom up and brought her down to my place. Now she wants to go shopping! UGH I am pretending to be very busy on the computer [​IMG] and stalling as much as possible! [​IMG]

    You people are nuts. I say that with a smile and mean no disrespect.
    I can't tolerate the crowds. I'd go nuts.

    I'm a typical male who waits until the last minute to shop. It's store,
    then bar, then store, then bar. It get's done.

    This year my big presents are already on the way since I ordered them
    online.

    I avoid stores on this day like the plague. I would have a panic attack with all those people, and some of them not so nice.... I have very limited funds to spend this year and I need to shop carefully, like go and look and come home and decide. ICK! I hate being broke!
