Working in retail is already a special sort of nightmare.

Entitled customers, unorganized piles of clothing, and constant stolen items create a stressful (and often severely underpaid) work environment. Working on Black Friday, though, is the entrance to a new level of hell.

All the problematic, "let me speak to the manager" customers on regular days turn into a maniacal packs of savings-thirsty Harry Potter "dementors" on on the day after Thanksgiving. Something about eating, drinking and spending time with family turns people into materialistic monsters? People fight over the last sale items with brute strength. The scenes are reminiscent of a post apocalyptic looting session. Most retail workers don't make commission so they're basically working as security guards for most of the day.

So, it's no surprise that when a Reddit user asked, "Retail workers of reddit, what's your Black Friday horror story?" people everywhere were prepared to share their tales from the madness.
