Prepare for the Black Friday–Special Shopping War!
The busiest sale day of the year is Black Friday. Well yeah, you’ve reached the night before the big day, you’re outside the store with a sleeping bag and are sound asleep on your pillow, just to wake up and see a big line up in front of you. Now how will you get all the Black Friday specials listed on your shopping list?
If you want to take full advantage of Black Friday specials, the mantra is to distract fellow shoppers! Take your wackiest friend along and ask him/her to try these wicked yet fun tricks while you finish off your Black Friday specials shopping list:
Be Nasty: When there are people behind you, ask your friend to walk slowly and block the aisles of the product that you want to buy.
Confuse Them: Pose as a store employee and give wrong directions to everyone around and randomly throw things over into neighboring aisles. If any shopper comes to ask you about a product, suggest that they go to another store for better Black Friday specials.
Embarrass Them: Walk up to complete strangers and say, “Hi! I haven’t heard from you in so long. Why are you ignoring me?” etc. See if they play along to avoid embarrassment. Follow them through the aisles, always staying about five feet away. Continue to do this until they forget all about grabbing the Black Friday specials and run from the store.
Embarrass Yourself: Listen to music on the sound asleep pillow. Lie down on the floor and swirl like you have never swirled before and shout, “I love Black Friday specials.”
Annoy Them: When someone steps away from their cart to look at something, quickly make off with it without saying a word. This would motivate them not to look for Black Friday specials and go back home.
