There is a feeling akin to watching a Youtube video of a street fight when you are in Best Buy on Black Friday and you see a grown woman rip the last remaining Xbox out of the hands of a child and run off.
I was on the other side of the cell phones when it happened, so there wasn’t even the opportunity to do anything about it.
I usually never get involved, but when children are involved, all bets are off.
The kid looked like he was crying, and walked off.
Ah, consumerism at its finest.
I managed to sneak in after the morning craziness had worn off, but make no mistake, it is an incredibly busy day.
I am to late to get in on any Door busters.
However, a lot of those will be sold on Ebay pre-Xmas.
I know this because I bought a netbook a few years ago.
$300 Netbook, bought for $150 at Best Buy and sold on Ebay for $200.
I am now in the tv department, sitting on the floor.
42 televisions are all streaming A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.
I am done shopping.
It doesn’t take long before I am joined by about 10 guys and an equal number of kids.
We are all on the floor.
The wives, no doubt, are elsewhere, taking Xboxes from young kids, that sort of thing.
There is something about this film, about Charlie Brown.
It sparks memories of laying in the living room room floor in your jammies, hair still damp from your bath.
Turns out there was only about 10 minutes left in the show.
I find myself heading to the front door when there is a commotion at the registers.
Xbox kid’s mother has confronted the Xbox snatching lady.
It is now on like Donkey Kong.
