Wait.  Someone waited in line, and battled through hordes of mad consumers to purchase board games that will most likely never go out of stock?

I saw that, too. WTF would you battle Black Friday crowds for THOSE? And they're probably 20% cheaper or more online, anyway.

Look, I love shopping as much as the next woman, but I can't handle that shiat. I'm not sleeping outside in a tent to be one of the first people into a store at 3 a.m. I'm not going to the mall and getting crushed by several thousand people, all trying to buy the same piece of Chinese-made crap for super-low prices. My best friend and her husband did this, and while I love them to death.......I think they're farking nuts.

I've worked retail over the holidays before, and I feel sorry for the sales associates who have to deal with these people today.

Four Emerson's? Seems about right, those tvs will last about 6 months each.

No. In 1975 they were actually made well. Now this poor couple has to buy them every year to replace the ones that broke in January.

I don't know about the more mainstream games like those, but when I was looking into setting up my own store I did some research with the distributors for Catan and those other fancier board games - they don't sell to online only operations at all, apparently. Which was a bummer when my location fell through and I ended up online only.

I was about to mention that. Emerson is the bottom of the barrel I remember how short that stuff lasted growing up. Complete crap.

These people deserve all the ridicule that can be dished out. How sad and pathetic your life must be if you're that excited about crowding into a store with hundreds of others at 3AM.

Go fill your miserable lives with Chinese-made plastic junk.

A few years back? I was seeing those people on TV last night.

I mean more power to them I guess, but I like being lazy, and shopping is the opposite of lazy for me.

I imagine it's the same mentality of those people who are into Extreme Couponing. There seems to be a certain subset of the population who will endure a massive amount of inconvenience to save money.

"I spent my entire weekend going through every newspaper in the state and found a combination of coupons that made bags of sugar only 18 cents each, so I bought 5000 of them! I had to rent a U-Haul and we don't have a den any more, but I saved a fortune!"
