Black Friday madness is here and with it the people that have been preparing, physically and mentally, for them. But sometimes we forget how incredibly crazy people can get.
Customers take really seriously the effort to buy what they want during this time of the year, and sometimes that means even getting rid of your compassion and common sense. There are crazy and scary things people do, that can seem hilariously unbelievable but are true.
Here we leave you with 15 of the most unthinkable things:
15. Getting into a fight.
Fights must be the most common thing to see in Black Fridays, but according to this Radioshack employee’s statement, he saw two sweet grannies getting into a fight once they learned that there was only one item left.
14. Grabbing sweaters and running out of the store with them.
Taking advantage of the disaster is another common thing. Grabbing items and running away with them, that’s taking an offer to a whole new level.
13. Wandering into the storage room and opening boxes.
A seller in Toys R Us saw this one customer getting into the storage room and opening boxes to see what they had inside. It brought a domino effect and other customers decided to do the same.
12. Competing for coupons.
One joking Old Navy’s manager once decided to make the customers compete for coupons, by making them sing Christmas songs. And the customers took the competition pretty seriously and gave quite a performance.
11. Punching an employee in the face.
After getting shoved by a customer, a Walmart employee tried to pick up a DVD on the ground, that was previously selected by a customer who angrily hit him in the face.
10. Changing the items’ barcode.
This one customer once tried to take away a huge TV for 20 dollars, by changing the barcode of the TV for another item. Mastermind.
9. Catching products from the air.
When employees gladly join the mass hysteria, you might as well accept it. One time a Victoria’s Secret PINK employee got over a table and started throwing products while yelling their specifications.
8. Throwing coffee at your shopping buddy.
Yep, when the frustration and the adrenaline get the best of customers. A woman threw coffee at her shopping buddy, but it hit someone else and it began a huge throwing it all fight, that ended up with the police intervening the whole thing.
7. Going through hell just to get something.
Literally. This one family owned store a store with a broke heating system, and they opened on Black Friday. So customers experienced the heat of buying in hell.
6. Stamping into the store.
People might as well profit every minute of the day, and of course, there’s no time to walk as a civilized person, they have to run and let the adrenaline release. And get things done.
5. Following the employees into the stocking room.
After not finding the size she was looking for, a lady followed an employee into the stocking room. This same lady had already asked the employee for the size, and since it was out, she decided to follow her and check it by herself.
She won’t even notice I’m here.
4. Buying tickets for big items.
This one is crazy. After figuring out the shops’ system of printing tickets for the highly sought items. A pair of teenager decided to print out tickets for items and sell them to people.
3. Exhausting the employees.
Obviously, employees are doing their job, but people get a bit too crazy when it comes to Black Friday, and sometimes we don’t see the best of them.
2. Punching another customer.
Getting crazy and competitive about something. When people are competing over an item, sometimes the competition gets physical. This Best Buy’s employee saw how a man hit a woman in the face to take the TV they were fighting over.
1. Stabbing someone.
This one is bad crazy. An employee of Bed, Bath, and Beyond saw two people, normally, discussing over an item. When suddenly, one lady pulled out a knife and stabbed the other lady.
