I had my first Black Friday experience this morning, and it wasn't as bad as I thought. I had thoughts of long lines, outside in the 20 degree weather, like the one I saw when I drove by Best Buy. Luckily Walmart was open all night, so the line I had to wait in was indoors.
While in line, I overheard the guy in front of me say he got in line at midnight, then got a wristband at 2am. Meanwhile I got in line around 4:45 (the electronic sale started at 5am). I did have to wait until around 5:30 before the laptop was in my hands.
So to all those who waited outside in the elements, hope it was worth it. I think you are crazy, but hopefully you enjoy your crazy discounts.
Just to add a little spice to this post, here's a very strong chair (look how little the chair leg is):
"I can't feel my legs."
