    littlemissgt- I dig the braid... I don`t know if its you but its nice.

    "we never thought we had to be first for any sort of firstness; just for our own firstness."

    and yet... you are missing Thanksgiving, the most American day of them all, to sit in a tent. Enjoy your firstness. I`ll enjoy my turkey.

    @D3rAnG3d It`s not only about the sales...black friday is just fun in general...we do it every year too...toys r us opens at 10 so we need to be there by 6 and then walmart, target, and the mall all open at midnight which screwed us up bad :( but it`s just fun...not all about the sales.

    What`s it called... time cost opportunity? So she`s going to spend 2 days of her life waiting on line to save, let`s say $400 bucks? I`ll be shopping in the convenience of my office chair on amazon with free shipping for reasonable prices. Yay lazyness!

    Unless she`s going to get tickets and then sell them, seems like she`s going over-board.

    She didn`t do it for the firstness of being first at firstness.

    FYI, everyone that was with her (four people) Best Buy gave them each an iPad... per the news here in good ole hick-state FL.
    Personally, despite the iProduct, I think I would have spent my time better with my family or anything else rather than wasting it for a sale where you might save $50-300. She`s stingy (obviously) so she won`t spend much money there anyway lol.

    This has all the makings of a fail endeavor. Going in way too soon without a proper plan or clear objectives. She doesn`t even know for sure what is on sale or what she plans to buy.

    I agree. At least read the leaked Black Friday Ads online, then decide which store is best, and camp only if you must.

    Another example of how some Americans are so g***amn stupid.

    This woman will stay outside a store just for some sort of deal, will skip out on family time in the thanksgiving honor, and here she is looking like possibly the lamest, most idiotic moron in the world.

    Never going to florida again.

    Where does she have the money for the sales? She obviously has no job if she`s able to randomly camp outside for a week.

    Also could she not be moved on? Ie like with the homeless in some parts, not being allowed to sleep overnight in certain locations?

    What`s the use? Even on the off-chance that there`s 50 people waiting behind her on Friday, they`ll all be let inside at the same time anyway, and can just walk ahead of her. It`s not like they`ll let her in on her own an hour ahead of everybody else.

    She spends days in the tent for bargains while she gives her man days off so he can go fishing in peace. At least, that`s how it looks in my world, and in my world, that`s a good woman.

    I`m feeling like she doesn`t have any family to spend Thanksgiving with, so she decides to do this instead.

    Also, is Best Buy okay with this crazy woman sitting out there a few extra days?

    by the time Friday rolls around, she is gonna smell so bad they won`t let her in the store.

    but, kudos to her. she faced up to the challenge of living on the wild streets. okay, there are security camera`s watching to protect her but she did have to pee in the gutter, that`s something.

    Who`s to say that having a nice dinner with the ones you love and then relaxing and watching some TV is a better idea than sitting outside a best buy for days to save some money.
