After preparing all month, getting your list together (and checking it twice), and gathering with loved ones, the big November holiday is finally here: Black Friday. Thanksgiving may be the day for being grateful and giving thanks, but how can you be grateful for things you don’t even have yet? Exactly.
So, as you gear up to go fight the crowds (figuratively and literally) and get those bargains, keep an open ear for these phrases. You’ll only hear them on Black Friday, after all, and it comes but once a year.
“Alright, when we get in the store I want you to sprint straight back to electronics.”
This is the game plan. Put those high school track days to good use and do not disappoint me.
“Are you doing rainchecks?”
The answer is no. It will always be no. So don’t even ask.
“I’m never doing this again. I swear this is the last time.”
She said it last year, too. And she’ll be back again next year.
“I only waited in line for an hour and a half. It wasn’t bad at all!”
The line was wrapped all the way around the Toys R Us, but it moved surprisingly quickly!
“I wish they would start doing this on Friday again.”
Says the man standing in line outside of Best Buy at 3 p.m. on Thursday anyway…
“So, how long have you been camping out?”
“I’ve been here since noon. I had to miss out on the entire Thanksgiving dinner, but I really want to get some $2 pajamas.”
“There’s no need to shove. You’ll all get your Hatchables.”
Now, you may not get this year’s hottest toys at the same time, but you will get one eventually. Please don’t hurt each other. The employees are exhausted and cannot break up your fights.
“We got a late start this morning. We slept in until 2 a.m.”
Slackers… With deals starting as early as 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day itself, if you’re not out shopping before midnight, you may as well not go at all.
