Florida Couple Already Camping Out For Black Friday At Best Buy

People have too much time on their hands. Need an example? A couple in Florida have decided it’s better to spend the next week, which happens to include Thanksgiving, camped out in front of a Best Buy.

From the Miami Herald:

[The couple] set up a large blue tent outside a Best Buy store in St. Petersburg on Wednesday. They plan to camp out for more than a week hoping to be first in line. Store managers gave their blessing.

There are actually two couples involved in this folly, as one does the day shift in the nonexistent line and the other is camping out at night.

And for people who are so eager to get into Best Buy, they don’t even know what they are going to buy, though they do tell the Herald they “might buy a big screen TV or something for the computer.”
