We all have stories about Black Friday, now let's create our own Black Friday story.

 

How it works:

Each person will write one line of the story in their post. JUST one line. The story should be Black Friday related somehow. Each post will build on the previous post.

 

AND THAT'S IT. NOW LET'S WRITE! (imagine you were watching Anchorman, right before the big Anchor fight, when Ron Burgundy was laying down the rules.)

 

I'll start.

 

It's November 3, and only a few Black Friday ads have been leaked, creating anxiety and apprehension at the lack of ads and deals.


GO BRUINS!

That anxiety is increased for a certain owner of a BF site because more ads in less days = less sleep and more expletives :P

But he continues year after year because he knows he is bringing happiness and excitement to hundreds (thousands?).

Those behind the scenes helping the site owner, prepare for an incoming flurry of ads to be typed up.

The email sends our Brad into a frenzy. It couldn't be! Our most beloved store has announced they are cancelling all Black Friday sales this year.

The explanation the store gives: "To allow our employees time off, to shop BF with their friends and family for once"

As Thanksgiving dinner came and went with family and friends, the clock ticked on. "What will I do?" I exclaimed. It was quarter to midnight on Black Friday eve when I received a PM from Brad...

I sprang out of bed, grabbed my phone, my trusty GD hat, my tabbed flyers for price-matching, my car keys and, like a reindeer on Christmas Eve, dashed madly out the door and slid into the driver's seat - and as I turned the key, a light flashed on the dashboard: the car was dangerously low on gas.


Bargains, baking, and Black Friday! :holiday08 :holiday07

I took my chance and drove 2 miles to the nearest station, barely making it, but I forgot it doesn't open until 5am!

What to my wandering eyes should appear? No it wasn't a sleigh or a reindeer. It was the gas station manager who must have been dragged from bed. Would he open the station or would my car sit here near dead?

More rapid than checkout lines his employees they came,
He jumped and shouted and called them by name:
Now, Bob! Now, Sue! Now, Alex and Brian!
On Sally! On, Jake! On Kate and Ryan!
