Black Friday 2018 is in full swing. It's the annual shopping sales event that brings out the best prices for holiday gifts but, admittedly, the worst in consumers. Here's a friendly reminder to keep your cool amid the chaos (and, if it's too late for you, there's always next year).
"I watched a woman collapse in hysterics into my manager's arms because we didn't have the exact model of cooler she wanted," one person wrote on Reddit, per PEOPLE.
Another recalled of Black Friday, "When I worked at Walmart, we had a fight break out over a bike. Fists were thrown and there was some blood. Eventually, one guy got ahold of it and managed to get away from the crowd. He rode the bike out of the store (without paying)."

"When I worked at Sam's Club, we caught a woman stuffing the inside of her pants with frozen lobster tails," a third said. "She would unpack them and throw the trash in a stack of tires that were on display nearby."
"I'm not a big Black Friday shopper, but my brother was in a pet store, and all of the birds got loose during a sale years ago," one Philly Metro staffer recalled earlier this week. "He said they were literally pooping on everything."
So, yes, there's disarray when deals come into play.
Whether you stayed home or braved it out in stores, here are some of the funniest tweets about Black Friday 2018.
