Stand in line day again is coming! Yes, it’s Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when retailers go from being in the red to being in the black financially because us shoppers scoop up all the great deals out there.

Now remember, a deal really isn’t a deal unless it is at least 50% off and that depends on the list price. When stores go out of business people ravage it when the prices are just 20% to 30% off. Don’t get caught up in the hoopla. Make sure it’s truly a good deal.

Here’s some tips to move up in line, especially the ones where you have to camp out overnight. First, don’t bathe your nether regions for a good week or so. Ripening the body aroma will get people moving out of your way. You’ll be first in no time.

Next, if that doesn’t work, try talking real loud about some inane topic like the bursting strength of cardboard. Being very animated about it will help and try to lock eyes with people when you do it. That will make them uncomfortable, like those size tags on the back of shirts.

If neither of these work, then bring a tape of a square dance and play it out loud on a phonograph or boombox. When you turn your partner in line next to you ’round n ’round, make sure you work it so that you move up in line with each swing. Before you know it you will have do-si-do’s all the way to the front of the line.
