5 hilarious and true horror stories from employees who worked on black friday
We’re so close to the holiday season we can almost taste the stuffing and ‘nog. But one little quirk of Thanksgiving is the day that comes after — Black Friday, when people think it’s worth it to camp out for hours or even days to get a good deal on the newest technological device or clothing they’ve been eying for ages. While Black Friday deals can be unparalleled, the way people act while out Black Friday shopping is usually what makes headlines. We’ve read about people getting trampled, fights breaking out, and certainly it’s the most stressful day of the year for retail workers.
But we’ve collected a few stories that are a little more funny than they are horrifying for your reading pleasure… although it make make you reconsider Black Friday shopping in the future, yikes.
