This isn't a pirate thread. This is a thread were we talk about the busiest retail shopping day of the year.
Black Friday!

A quick Google search leads to a bunch of annoying websites with a lot of ads. Expect mobs of idiots to argue over prices, make a mess in stores and generally cause chaos.

What I want to know SE++, is which unfortunate souls are working on Friday or what do you plan on buying?

Alternatively, you can talk about pirates or call each other fags.

OH AND BLACK FRIDAY FOR THIS YEAR IS NOV 28, 2008.

    Man, fuck working Black Fridays.

    Screw you, I'm not waking up at 4 to deal with throngs of customers.

    I'm glad I'm out of retail.

    I worked Black Friday both at American Eagle and Gamestop.

    American Eagle was the worst.

    you can get cheaper ones but this one is actually good

    also in the last two-three weeks the price fell like thirty bucks at least

    Yeah, Black Friday wasn't that bad when I worked at GameStop. They don't have too many "deals" to begin with and the ones they do have sell out in like an hour so the rest of the day is "sorry we're sold out"

    I work in the cafe. The shitty thing is we have a happy hour now from 6pm-8pm. Plus people tip shitty where I am from and I work by myself. So that means I am taking orders, making drinks and cleaning. It is a nightmare when it gets busy.

    True story: "Black Friday" is not the busiest shopping day of the year.

    In fact, it is usually only the third busiest.

    Also I've never tried to go shopping on a Black Friday because the lines are awful and the sales are never worth the money.

    we couldn't get tips at all because no one else in the store did. people would think they were tipping us but really they were donating to children's literacy.

    except when they dropped bills in there, that shit is obviously meant for me those kids can learn to read on their own goddamn time

    The busiest is generally the last Saturday before Christmas.

    Second busiest is often the last Sunday.

    I worked at a Best Buy for one black friday. It wasn't bad. More funny than anything else. A lady threw a sales flyer at me.

    That was the easiest job I've ever had actually. Paid shit, of course, but easy.

    Yeah, I was working at Geek Squad for one Black Friday.

    They sent me home early, since I was getting paid something like $17/hr. Not great pay, but twice what a lot of folks were getting in the actual Best Buy store.
