People Are Actually Trying To Sell Their Work Uniforms For Line-Skipping On Black Friday

November 21st, 2017

It all started with a viral tweet that began as a joke.  It instead resulted in hundreds of people actually trying to sell the uniforms they wear for work to others who think wearing it would let them bypass the long lines on Black Friday.

On Tuesday, Twitter user @OverlyLiked, tweeted that he would be selling his Walmart vest for$100, He posted, “Use it to skip the line during Black Friday”

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is a day of the year in the United States where the normal, basic human decencies of politeness and calm organization are thrown out the window for the sake of getting a bargain. It’s the biggest shopping event of the year and that is no joke. People camp out over night, stores open in the wee—hours of the morning, families and friends endure huge crowds and lines, all for the sake of grabbing the super-limited bargains, deals and rewards the stores offer to lure shoppers in.

After posting his initial joking tweet, @OverlyLiked was flooded with people trying to buy his Walmart vest off of him.  He then clarified he was absolutely 100% JOKING about the offer. His tweet picked up over 20,000 retweets and 50,000 likes.

Then more people popped up trying to sell their uniforms including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and more to anyone who could meet their dollar ask. Some had their own uniforms while others just re-used the orginal post pic.

Perhaps funny as the joke it was intended. For those who were more seriously considering this we ask, do you really want to lose your job, spend Thanksgiving and possibly then entire holidays in jail? We say Bah Humbug to the Ebenezer Scrooges out there. Do you really think an employee can just cut the line for purchases or stroll out of the store with merchandise?
You might want to RT TWICE on that one!
#RTandRT = ReThink and ReTweet that!   Happy Shopping!
