Yes, it’s advantageous to line up for an irresistible sale early. A duo of California shoppers were a little too early to this year’s Black Friday sale at their local Best Buy, though, camping outside of the store more than a week ahead of time. Security staff booted them off the property, asking them to return on Thanksgiving. Thank Providence someone in this scenario is sane.

You see, one camper says that arriving “on time” like a sane person means missing all of the best deals. She described her unfathomable suffering to a TV reporter: “Last year, I came on Tuesday and I was 17th in line. They only had 15 TVs.”
