So there I was at 5:30 am freezing my buns off in front of Menard's. When we got there, about 100 other people were already lined up at the door, yeah I know who the heck goes to Menard's on Black Friday? Needless to say this was my first time attending any Black Friday event, I usually was the one behind the check out counter. The workers announced the five minute warning and I raced back to the car to grab Wyatt and my mother-in-law who were toasting their buns. Then, you would have thought the gates of heaven opened when insanity struck. These people were running through the doors, pushing each other out of the way and steering their carts like they were in a NASCAR race. If that weren't crazy enough, I noticed "impostors" who just got there and were rushing to the front of the line. Of course my husband, along with some other freezing customers, were yelling at them to get to the back of the line. I got fired up too, only because we were the ones waiting out in the cold and it wasn't fair. In my mind I pictured tazing each person who attempted to sneak in. Ok, that was a morbid thought but I was running on no sleep. Well, we got what we wanted but after the whole experience I will never do it again. Noah loves it so I will just send him out for me next year and the many years after that!
