I'll venture out at 4am Friday to K-Mart or Walmart and be ultra-early to the other places if I go out at all. The monsters that walk on two legs will be out that day.

The Satelite TV guy is supposed to come Friday so I won't be going anywhere myself.

That's what I do. If I have to go out, I'll be there and back before most people even wake up. I'll spend the rest of the day working from home. I have no tolerance for crowds.

We have to assign officers to the local WalMart to prevent violence...as sad as that is.

They had to do that up here yesterday because the new X-Box system had arrived at a local store and they only had 12 and there were about 30 people in line...

I know which Walmart Tom's refering to. I refuse to shop there, the majority of the staff and the clientel are too neanderthal like for my tastes. I was there once when there was a stabbing at the bus stop next to it.

I refuse to shop after Nov 20th. I do food shopping, when needed (usually stock up in early Nov to get me through to Feb) and minimize other trips. Theres a 24hr super Walmart 25 min from me that I'll be hitting at 2AM when I need stuff this season. Too many crazys out there.

There was a story in our paper about violence at Wal-Mart because of the Xbox. We can blame it on Wal-Mart and Microsoft!

I used to work a uniformed off-duty security detail there. The money they paid was great but I think I got into more fights and foot chases working there than I did on the street.

Same. Same.

3 major stores with lines out the doors and each only had 12-15 machines.

My wife has volunteered to get up early tomorrow (er, today) to try to get computers for our kids for Christmas. There are some good deals that were advertised in Thursday's paper.

Well, here I sit, unwilling to venture out after all. It's pouring rain, all the idiots who are new to our area are out there driving like maniacs and navigating the stores no better.

Besides, I am cooking for our 2nd Thanksgiving dinner today and must clean and train tonight.

And it's cold. And ... I don't wanna shop with all the other two-legged monsters.
