    I can't think of one material item that would ever make me want to set up a tent in front of a store and freeze my balls off. Sheer lunacy.

    I'm with chris on this. Whenever I see videos from the black friday crowds I just shake my head and think the end is near.

    A lot of people end up with the whole week off or most of the week off. Unless you work retail, you usually get Thursday and Friday off. I know a lot of people who take days of vacation around Christmas and Thanksgiving.

    That said, I could never imagine taking vacation and then standing in line for days.

    It's one of those things--how much is your time worth? Often times, I will pay a bit more for gas just to not have to wait in line at the cheapest place. Same goes for a lot of shopping.

    I have only purchased one Black Friday deal and it was online with Walmart. Just stayed up past midnight and kept refreshing the page and when it went live I bought it.

    Yeah, I get that some people have it off. I'm off every friday from 11/14- end of year due to having vacation days I'll lose if not used. I guess I just don't get the camping out for 4 days. I'd have to be doing something productive.
