  • LOTS of people, lol. I've never shopped Black Friday, but I've worked retail, so I've seen the crowds (and the traffic -- ugh!). I remember a story a couple of years ago about someone being trampled to death (literally) at Wal-Mart or somewhere like it. *shudder* There are some CRAZIES out there, so practice your defensive moves (as driver and pedestrian).

  • I'm 32. I've never done it. I don't have a death wish just yet, so I'm staying home, as usual.

  • It is NOT as bad as most people say it is. DO NOT GO TO WALMART. That is where 99.9% of the trouble is it seems. I go to anywhere from 4-10 different stores on Black Friday. You just need to be prepared to NOT get that door buster you are after, and be patient with the crowds. I think it's lots of fun, and I've chatted with some really nice people while waiting in line to get in.

  • I am twenty four and I have worked many a Black Friday. My favorite times working in retail were on the busy days, and this includes Black Friday. I have never shopped on Black Friday though, that I can remember. I am going tomorrow and am super excited. Be patient, stay calm, and really think about your purchase. Not all items that say "Sale" are really a good deal, so keep an eye on what you're purchasing. Don't get caught up, because you could be costing yourself more then it's worth.
