    A little online shopping, yeah...but no way I'd even approach a store on Black Friday; I'll leave that chaos to the masses.

    Most of my shopping is done, so unless there's something fantastic on sale (I haven't gone online to check), I highly doubt I'll go this year. I've been to too many early birds the past couple years - I think I'll sleep in this year....

    Nada. I'm going to barricade myself inside with the windows and doors locked tight as a size 1 glove.

    If anyone knocks I'll shout "we're sold out!!!!"

    I worked retail for a few years and had to endure black Friday by waking up at 4:00 a.m. for work. Never again! And that includes being part of the customer side of things. I'll leave the herd to fend for themselves.

    Thankfully the stores here do well enough earlier in the year that it doesn't take a special promotion at this time of year to take them all from the red into the black financially.

    Why did you call it ""dark Friday" when it is actually "Black" as in "Not Red" and has nothing whatever to do with dark or light or any other colour.

    Black Friday is not a special promotion. It's the name of the busiest shopping day of the year, which has been true for many decades. Only recently have "citizens" become aware of the term (or was it just made up recently?) but it has always been that way and special promotions were not the norm. However, in recent years, stores have tried to oneup each other with these so-called special promotions.

    SLAMMED!
    My wife just got home from working a 16-hour shift today. So far, my mall restaurant is up 40&#37; over last year.

    What a glorious day!

    I picked up a whole new Quad-Core system with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB HD, along with a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate (and other toys, like video card, dvd-rw) for $1200...and no shipping!

    Just an ordinary five day work week here. The shops will only get the over the top attention you describe during the christmas sales following christmas day.

    I would not dream of going out on that day No way will I flesh it out with the crowds. Besides, I have not much of a desire to buy stuff.

    i did end up going out for a couple of hours. first and last time for that. wife wanted to get up early and get some things before we had to do some cooking for another thanksgiving meal today. couldn't believe that many people were out that early! after a couple of hours, we were so blasted tired (cause she got us up at O-dark-thirty) that we came home. did get a couple of decent deals, doubt that they were any better than any other time though.
