Shopping violence , black Friday ..
AS we all know when holiday events spawn good shopping sales. Events which in people get great deals, and shop until they drop, there is alot of violence created from those events. Yesterday, and this really grinds my gears, some eager woman pushed my mother in the store , and almost knock her down. Now, I was not there other wise that woman would have got a insanely aggressive vibe. They were just standing in line , I heard and nothing was moving at all, and she shoved her, I would have been far too pissed to let that woman off easy if I were there. Most guys do not like it when you mess with their momma and sisters.
I would have gone scar face on her.
As for the topic here , have yoiu or someone you know ever experienced a violent shopping experience? It often happens during the holidays.
Whats Black Friday?
"Black Friday" is the day following the American holiday, of "Thanksgiving".
Stores give customers a chance to get incredible bargains, sometimes below actual cost, and it is the last big sale day before Christmas. Between those two things, it is one of our biggest shopping days.
On that day, stores will often price items down so low, that they are loosing money on the item. The goal is to get lots of shopper's in the store, who will purchase other items.
This sale also kicks off the Holiday shopping season with a bang. Its Christmas time again...
In response to the OP. Actually, it was fairly calm at my Wal-Mart. We are currently under a remodel, so there were not as many customers in the store. Even so, I stayed behind the electronics counter.
Happy Buy Nothing Day! :D
Not any violence, but i tell you if anyone ever did decide to push me at 6am they'd be getting a lot more than my morning attitude.
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

Hmm. The closest thing we have down here to Black Friday is Boxing Day. Bought a set of 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers for $30 that day. Gotta love logitec.
Cheap Sydney bargins?
There will not be any violence in online shopping, I prefere that:)
So what it amounts to is people celebrating the commercialization of the holiday season...
