Nah, ah, ah. Football. Don't call it the other thing or you get virtually stabbed. =S
Hey man, I work in the Electronics department of Walmart, and I just got back from my closing shift. So yeah, they're trying to bring it here and people are still nuts.solemnwar said:Fuck am I ever glad I'm Canadian. None of that shit here, especially since our Thanksgiving is in October. You know, a reasonable length of time away from Christmas x:
Although it doesn't stop some companies up here trying to do the whole black friday thing... (fffuuuu-).
I found this out first from my mom. Whatever article she read said that the woman was after one of the 360 console holiday deals, and also ended up escaping in all the uproar.Amnestic said:I refuse to pass judgement until I find out what video games she was after.
Obviously the guy thinks that Wal-Mart should plan to have enough TVs for every person that lives in the area, just in case every single person decides to get one.Waaghpowa said:We had some TVs on sale that sold out at 8 in the morning. Guy comes in at 8 in the evening asking for it. When we tell him we were sold out, he freaked and said "Did you guys have enough? One walmart only had 45". ONLY 45?! We had 50 of those Tv's. 50! That's a lot of damn TVs! How the hell is that NOT enough?
Regardless of what he believed, it's mind boggling. You can probably imagine how much space 50 large screen TV's take up, and as such saying "only" 45 is like.......what?!Sonic Doctor said:Obviously the guy thinks that Wal-Mart should plan to have enough TVs for every person that lives in the area, just in case every single person decides to get one.
Or maybe he thought that all Wal-Marts have little elves in a back room that construct anything a customer wants. I know my Wal-Mart has that. =P
Well then, you guys should think about getting some of those little elves. They take up far less space than 50 TVs. They're magic, so they can make a TV for your customers in a couple minutes. =PWaaghpowa said:
Fuck that, I'm not losing wage to a keebler elf. Damn pointy eared bastards.Sonic Doctor said:Well then, you guys should think about getting some of those little elves. They take up far less space than 50 TVs. They're magic, so they can make a TV for your customers in a couple minutes. =P
Don't worry, these elves may be magical, but they are rather stupid when it comes to selling and managing retail. Your job is safe.Waaghpowa said:
Please not the use of the words "could have been" not "she was going to die so she had no choice"mjc0961 said:And this is why I refuse to go anywhere on Black Friday.
The flip side of the coin is that you should try reading the entire article and not just the headline. She was in no danger, she was just doing it to get better access to the deals.TimeLord said:I had to laugh at this. However, the flip side of the coin is that the title of this could have been;
"Woman Trampled to Death By Fellow Shoppers For Videogames"
And that's a hell of a lot worse than pepper spraying someone.
