Absolutely not! It's the worst day ever and it brings out the worst in people. I used to work at a mall, so I've seen first hand what this day is like. People are out of their minds. Fighting each other over items, running over each other, pushing, shoving. Acting like complete animals. All over a few bucks. Not to mention the traffic. Holy shit, you just want to beat someone with a tire iron. I don't have a very high opinion of humanity to begin with and days like this just reinforce it. Anyone who volunteers to go out to shop on Friday is just crazy

I think I speak for everyone who works a retail job that this is getting fucking absurd.
I respect your opinion, sir, and I agree with a lot of it. Black Friday is bullshit in general. However I believe that above all else, people should just be thankful that they have jobs right now. I'm unemployed, and I would be absolutely thrilled to be going to work at 8pm on Thursday. I can spend time with my family another day, they're no less important to me when it's not Thanksgiving.

I'm getting a 42" 1080p tv for $200. I'd say that's saving more than "a few bucks."

Employees are still able to spend time with their families. The stores don't open until that night, and Thanksgiving is generally a late-afternoon dinner shindig. So it's all wrapped up by the time they would have to go to work.

I usually don't agree with Magson, but he makes a good point.

I'm not in the States for Thanksgiving this year but if I was you could bet your ass I would be spending it with my family, not waiting outside a mall for stuff. However, I am going to try and get a good price on an external hard drive on Monday. That's when they do all the online sales, right?

Nah, not this year. I don't like getting up that early only to deal with crazy traffic and people being assholes. A few years back I did see someone get punched in the face for cutting in line at Wal-Mart though, so that kinda made up for everything else
