Black Friday (part 2)

I read in the Austin newspaper that at the south Austin Best Buy there were EIGHT HUNDRED people lined up at 5 a.m. Friday morning when the store opened.

Like I said, Black Friday is insane.

Here's more, from DQ reader Tim Jones:
Talking of insanity, a buddy and I were looking at the Best Buy ads on Thanksgiving and there were at least ten things in there that each of us wanted. The plan was to hook up at one of the local Best Buys at 3:00 AM, as the store opened up at 5:00. Good plan , as I’m sure we could snag at least one of the items on the list. So we both arrived at the store at 3:05 AM and there were already at least 350 people in line. The people in the front of the line had tents and there were several large motor homes in the parking as well. It was pure chaos as people were honking their horns and racing around the parking lot. After about five minutes we had enough and headed back home.
